There’s a passage in the bible (Ezekial 23:19-20) that’s remarkably forthright about the alleged sexual attributes of the Egyptians:

Yet she multiplied her harlotries, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the harlot in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their paramours, whose flesh is like the flesh of donkeys and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

If you might be even a little bit confused what is meant by “flesh” and “issue” in this passage, I have the delicately helpful commentary of Gill’s Exposition to clear things up:

By “flesh” is meant the “membrum virile”, which in asses is very large, and therefore dedicated to Priapus by the Heathens; and vast is the profusion of seed in coitus by horses, to which the flesh and issue of the Egyptian paramours are compared; who were very libidinous, and therefore desirable to insatiable women.

Well, all righty then!

(Actually, the entirety of Ezekial 23 reads rather like pornography, if you ask me.)

P.S. Yes, I’ve blogged about this before, but I didn’t remember until I’d already hit the post button. Seven years is a long time; some duplication is inevitable.
