Many passages within the classics, both Greek and Roman, make reference to the cunnilinges swallowing the menstrual as well as other secretions of females. Aristophanes usually speaks with this. Ariphrades sods his tongue and stains disgusting moisture to his beard through the vulva. The exact same individual imbibes the feminine release, ‘And tossing himself on the he drank all her juice.’ Galienus is applicable the appellation ‘drinkers of menses’ to cunnilinges; Juvenal talks of Ravola’s beard being all moist whenever rubbing against Rhodope’s privities; and Seneca states that Mamercus Scaurus, the consul, ‘swallowed the menses of their servant girls by the mouthful’. The exact same author defines Natalis as ‘that guy with a tongue since harmful as it’s impure, in whose mouth females eject their monthly Purgation.’ Into the Analecta of Brunck, Micarchus posseses an epigram against Demonax for which he claims, ‘Though living amongst us, you sleep in Carthage,’ i.e. during your day he lives in Greece, but rests in Phoenicia, because he stains the monthly flux to his mouth, that is along with for the purplish-red Phoenician dye.
вЂњIn Chorier’s Aloisia Sigea, we find Gonsalvo de Cordova referred to as a great tongue-player (linguist). When Gonsalvo wished to apply his mouth to a female’s components he utilized to state which he was going to Phoenicia or to the Red Sea or to the Salt Lake–as to which expressions compare the salty sea of Alpheus and the salgamas of Ausonius and the ‘mushrooms swimming in putrid brine’ which Baeticus devours that he wanted to go to Liguria; and with a play upon words implying the idea of a humid vulva. Since it had been stated of fellators (whom sucked a man user) grannies for sex which they were Phoenicising since they observed the instance set by the Phoenicians, so most likely the exact same term had been placed on cunnilinges from their swimming in a sea of Phoenician purple. Hesychius defines scylax (dog) being an erotic position like this thought by Phoenicians. The epithet excellently defines the action of the cunnilinge pertaining to the position assumed; dogs being notoriously dependent on licking a female’s components.вЂќ

By calling the clazomenes hammered (battered) Ausonius shows that they usually have become refined by having offered being an anvil. Martial directs an epigram against Carinus, whoever anal area had been split and lacerated by their extortionate indulgence in these methods.

FranГ§ois NoГ«l, but, states that Laius, dad of Oedipus, ended up being the first to ever get this to vice understood in the world.
