book on the sexual fantasies of the ancient Egyptians.

- Concubines and adultery
- Intercourse with animals

In their writings, the Egyptians were quite straightforward, whereas their
official art was far more
discreet and often disguised in symbolic language. Drawings and figurines,
however, are pornographic and humoristic. Ilustrations in the book include figurines held
in the British Museum which have not previously been published.
