    If you want to see sex stuff as part of your job, go into archeology. The ancient world is littered with images of a phallus, a Venus figurine worthy of Hugh Hefner, and even a vulva painting.

    Still, most prehistoric erotic art is abstract, disembodied. It doesn’t explicitly depict sex-crazed ancients screwing their brains out for fun and fertility.

    But one little-known, mysterious archaeological site does. The Kangjiashimenji Petroglyphs are bas-relief carvings in a massive red-basalt outcropping in the remote Xinjiang region of northwest China. The artwork includes the earliest—and some of the most graphic—depictions of copulation in the world.

    A couple of summers ago I was surprised to see erotic frescoes in the ruins of Pompeii, even though they were in a brothel.
    a Venus figurine worthy of Hugh Hefner,
    You mean something like this statue, which is from Pompeii's ruins but now on display in Napoli's National Museum. It's worth visiting in spite of the city's notorious thieves.*

    *my brother had warned one one of his colleagues who had to visit Naples for the first time for business not to approach city vendors. One offered him the latest Nikon SLR at a bargain price. He wanted cash and directed him to the nearest instabank. When he came back, the vendor had it all gift-wrapped for him. Upon returning to his hotel  and having ignored my brother's advice, he unwrapped his bargain and found nothing but salt in a box.
