Summary Daily life in ancient Egypt was saturated with eroticism and much influenced by cult and magic as well. Ancient Egyptian religion, with its variety of gods living, feeling, and reacting much like mortals, is a valuable index of human lifestyles of the day. This text addresses selected facets of the erotic concepts and practices of the ancient Egyptians, as recorded in art and literature; it also describes some recent archaeological discoveries.
