The 10 Strangest Ancient/Outdated Sex Beliefs

Ancient sex stories told in the modern day regale us with some classic tales of sex disease cures, theories on creation, and of course, the great successes that came of using beaver testicles as a means of contraception. Heck, in the early 20th century, one "old wives' tale" went: if a woman sneezed after sex, she would expel the semen from her body and would not get pregnant. Well, beliefs were even weirder before we came upon something wonderful that we like to call "medical science".

What are the craziest outdated beliefs about sex? Here are 10 weird sex beliefs from a time when if you didn't know something about science, you'd just make it up.

    We're All Just God's Semen

    3150 BC - 31 BC

    "In the beginning, God created the universe. At first the earth was shapeless and covered in darkness, and God's spirit hovered over the waters. God said, "Let there be light." And there was light." And there was a bunch of other stuff too that culminated into a six day period of creation and a single day of rest. That's the Christian story of Creation.

    Care to know about the ancient Egyptian story? That one's a bit simpler. You see Chaos, the God of creation, got a little frisky one day and decided to m********e. The result of the masturbation was the creation of the other Gods from his ejaculate. Since everything was started from that, we're all just God's semen.
