Excellent piece Joe.
It’s always been interesting to me how it appears in ancient times; people were more open about sex and sexuality than they are now. I’m sure there were still judgmental assholes (no pun intended), just like now. However, I guess when you’re living in a society where your absolute ruler attends orgies and takes part in sex with all genders, it’s difficult to speak out about it!
It seems as if when we as a society move forward in some ways, we move backward in others.
Thank you for sharing.
