Where do they come up with this crap?

Take a gander at these two 30,000 year-old ancient artifacts:

From those two artifacts, some nutcake has put forth the idea that "stone age humans" were involved in a wide range of sex acts: “bondage to group sex, transvestism and the use of sex toys were widespread in primitive societies as a way of building up cultural ties“.

Wait...there's more:

“The widespread lay belief that sex in the past was predominantly heterosexual and reproductive can be challenged,” said Taylor.

He argues that monogamy only became established as hunter-gatherer societies took up agriculture and settled in houses, allowing the social roles of men and women to become more fixed.

Experts believe research such as Taylor’s may help overturn false assumptions that sex for the purposes of reproduction is the form closest to nature.

Petra Boynton, a relationship counsellor and health lecturer at University College, London, found the study “refreshing”.

“So much evolutionary theory promotes the idea that humans, particularly women, are preprogrammed for monogamy, but that is often simply overlaying science on a preexisting view of society,” she said.

Yup, Fred and Wilma were serious swingers.

They’ll come up with just about anything to try to justify an immoral lifestyle.

By the looks of that ancient statue, obesity must have been a real turn on for our stone age ancestors.
