Historic Weird Sex Trends That Should Be Left In The Past

Posted by Missy aka Tizzy in History On 8th January 2018

The past decade has seen quite a few new sex trends that were brought into mainstream culture. I can remember how Beyonce had everyone googling "surfboard". Experimenting in the bedroom is nothing new, but could you even imagine some of the sexcapades that have taken throughout history? We have gathered some of the worst sex trends that should definitely stay in the past.


Tentacle Porn

The Japanese are totally to blame for this one. Besides enjoying octopus sushi, it seems that they were having fun with the tentacles in the bedroom. It was very popular in Japan as far back as the 1800s. They say that the trend started in 1814 When the painting, "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife" was painted by Hokusai. The painting shows a woman having sex with an octopus.


Shoes To Indicate Penis Size

We have all heard the saying, "the bigger the feet, the bigger the meat". Back in the 15th century, pointy shoes like these were extremely popular. The men would wear them in order to show off their virility because it was believed that the guys with the pointier shoes were the ones with the biggest penises. We guess that there were a lot of guys wearing shoes that were too big for their feet back in those days.


Advertising Oral Sex Skills With Lipstick

Egyptians were among the first groups of people to wear makeup. Red lips have always been considered sexy, but in ancient Egypt, lipstick was much more than a simple fashion trend. They say that women who would wear lipstick were totally cool with performing oral sex.

Employing Foot Ticklers

People with foot fetishes are nothing new, but back in the 18th century, they were taken to a whole new level. Foot ticklers were employed in courts and palaces. Apparently, Catherine the Great and Anna Ivanovna loved to have their feet tickled. Foot ticklers would tell dirty stories, spank, and sing dirty songs all while erotically tickling a woman's feet to get her aroused before having sex with her husband or partner.


Sex As A Part Of Religion

We have all had sex that has felt like a religious experience, but in Haiti, it is a religious rite. Those who practice voodoo in Haiti worship the goddess of love by trecking to the holy site of Saut-d’Eau each summer. They will bathe naked in the waters and some will go on to have sex in the blood of animals that they have sacrificed.
