Sex in lima peru
These days we seem to have a very conservative view of sex but, for the ancient cultures of Peru, it was not something to be hidden away.
They saw a power in the physicality of love that transcended just the act itself.
South America is the subcontinent located in the south of America.
Its limits are given by the Atlantic Ocean in north and east, the Pacific Ocean in the west, and the North American continent and the Caribbean Sea in the northwest. Lima, the capital and the largest city of Peru, is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, in a valley on a desert coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
I find it slightly odd that it’s in its own section, seeing as the people who made these pieces saw these depictions as something intertwined (quite literally) with the rest of their culture. There is a lot of shame in the idea of the erotic today.
This, however, is one of the reasons why researchers are able to say that this artwork has a deeper significance than just being Peruvian pottery porn.
