Erotic fresco pompeii
An Ancient Roman erotic fresco painting has just been discovered by archeologists at a dig site in Pompeii. According to IFL Science , it was found in an ancient Pompeii bedroom that was presumably destroyed following the deadly eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2, years ago. The myth goes as follows: Zeus fell into the arms of Leda , Queen of Sparta , seeking protection from an eagle. In the tale, Zeus appears in swan form for whatever reason, which explains why the most important mythological God was getting chased by an eagle.

Up Pompeii! Erotic paintings reveal sex lives of ancient Romans
A newly unearthed fresco discovered in an ancient Pompeii bedroom captures a sensual - albeit uncomfortable - love scene between legendary Queen of Sparta Leda and, erm, a swan. The bird, of course, is really the Greek god Zeus or Jupiter in Roman mythology in disguise, and the matter of whether seduction under disguise was actually seduction or rape depends on the interpretation of the story you're reading here it appears consensual - not that Zeus particularly cared for consent.
