Sexuality in the Ancient Greece and Rome

By Rosario Gómez
This entry contains a brief summary of some of the most widespread criteria in the aforementioned ancient cultures, in order to better understand the artistic illustrations that appear in these historical or historical periods. I write some texts that allow us to go deeper into the subject, one of them is a comparative anthropological treatise of diverse cultures in 5 continents, it is a very interesting pioneering work written in 1988 by Edgar Gregersen, Professor of Anthropology at Queens College, New York.
Other points of view of other authors and thematic exhibitions are also collected: Promiscuous, Cycladic Art Museum in Athens, director and commentator Nicholaos Stampolidis. Alfonso Cuatrecasas, doctor in classical philology and author of Love and sexuality in ancient Rome.

The Middle Ages

By Rosario Gómez
In the tireless desire to take advantage of the potential of Web.2, I want to continue publishing also in alhma.com, the Ars Erotica group, a group of retired teachers, who are doing a magnificent job of collecting sexual images in different artistic periods . In this entry you can see two chapters that collect the most outstanding medieval erotic painting and sculpture in Europe. They help us to appreciate the different evolutions on the subject throughout history and to understand much more in depth the current art images. Little I have to add in the historical terrain since it is not my field of investigation at present, nevertheless, in successive lines to the presentation of erotic Ars, I point out some interesting considerations of other authors specialized in the subject.
