We Don't Know If It's Art, But We Like It 

A startling archaeological find proves conclusively that Philip Larkin was wrong. Sexual intercourse did not begin in 1963:
Archaeologists have discovered what they believe to be the 7,200-year-old remnants of a man having intercourse with a woman.

The extraordinary find, at an archaeological dig in Saxony, shatters the belief that sex was a taboo subject in that era.

Until now, the oldest representations of sexual scenes were frescos from about 2,000 years ago.

Harald Stäuble of the Archaeological Institute of Saxony, based in Dresden, discovered the 8cm lower half of a man, which has been named Adonis von Zschernitz . . . .

Dr Stäuble, who is due to publish a paper on his findings this year, said: "After finding Adonis, we got the team to sieve every speck of soil for a whole month. We were well rewarded because we then found fragments of a female figurine of the same size."

He added: "Adonis is bent forward and the female figure is bent forward even more."
If their grant money comes through, Dr. Stauble's team hopes to fan out from the dig in hopes of finding nearby "niche" sites devoted to stone-age depictions of peeing MILF's, fisting cumsluts, and mature grannies who take it up the ass.

UPDATE: Welcome, new visitors!
