16 Slavic Sexuality

Slavic Sexuality

Posted on March 21, 2010 by

Museum “Slavic birch bark” based in Novosibirsk has opened a secret of Old Russians sexual life. An exhibition with a weird name “Slavic erotica: grass on the bottom of a river” combining works of various artists, specializing in reconstruction of ancient erotic symbols, rituals and archetypes. Those who had been ever interested with this topic know that sexual activities in Old Russian folklore involved not only people themselves but birds and animals, household utensils and clothes, agricultural tools. This unknown for us erotic universe was revealed in this exhibition where works of different level were presented – from original and interesting to openly vulgar. Here are photos of the most interesting and funny “sculptures” mostly made by one author – Victor Khahalin.

Life of heathen Rus was in a permanent state of sexual hyperactivity – like endless coitus in various positions. It was indeed typical only for pre-Christian Slavs – after the establishment of Christianity anything except a missionary position was strictly punished.

It’s not a surprise when in an old folklore song a 100 year old lady makes love with a 200 year old man and birds, animals and trees accompany them…

Woman’s bosom had been considered the universal reproductive factory, it embraces the whole world.

In contrast to our scabrous times the ancients had very respectful attitude to “reproductive tools”, but still with a bit of humor.

Some historians state that plural marriage was rather popular in Old Rus. They argue that the grand prince of Kiev Vladimir the Great had several wives. These three figures are supposed to be three wives.

These nice wicker guys professing free love at a kind of a birch Woodstock make dreams of freedom and overcoming of all social, religious and ethic limitations come true.

This birch bark paraphrase of the famous ancient Greek story “Abduction of Europa” drops hints about participation of animals in the Slavic sexual life.

    I dont get it. The article implies these things are 1000s of years old (before christianity in Russia), yet they are made of wood? Surely they couldnt survive this long…

  4. Leo Petr says:

    Overcoming “all” limitations might be a bit of an overstatement, considering there’s no girl-on-girl or boy-on-boy in these photos.

  5. Chris says:

    Some limitations should stay limited.

    Slavonic or slavic?

    • zax says:

      “Slavonic” and “Slavic” are synonyms in English. “Slavonic” was more used in the past than nowadays, but is still used occasionally. For example, many university departments for “Slavonic studies” or “Slavonic languages” are still named that way.
