Two Chinese girls enjoying a dildo




We don't think we have featured any Chinese erotica here before but sex was an important part of the path to happiness in Taoism and erotic art flowered in China from the tenth century until the beginning of the twentieth.  As in Japan, erotic art was also used to educate young married couples as well as providing arousing material in its own right.

These two ladies, enjoying what would now be called strap on sex, are likely to be courtesans in the Emperor's harem; their bound feet indicating their high status.  There is much evidence of the existence of dildos in the Imperial harem; no doubt to enable the ladies to satisfy themselves while awaiting their turn with the Emperor.  Unusually for Chinese erotic art, they are depicted in an interior setting.
