Changes in sexuality over time have made the modern family what it is. What next? Homa Khaleeli asks the authors of a groundbreaking graphic guide, The Story of Sex. Being French, and a psychiatrist to boot, Philippe Brenot takes a rather longer view. In his latest book, The Story of Sex , a bestseller in France, he runs an anthropological eye over the sexual mores of human societies from prehistoric times to today.

History of human sexuality

In the beginning was sex. To the ancient Greek mythologisers, sexuality, love and sex were inextricably connected with the creation of the earth, the heavens and the underworld. Simultaneously, Zeus, the top god, wasted no time in asserting his dominance over the other gods both male and female. His cavalier attitude towards female sexuality, as manifested in serial rape and seduction Zeus raped Leda, daughter of the Aetolian king Thestius, in the guise of a swan; raped Danae, a princess of Argos, disguised as the rain, and raped Ganymede, a male mortal set a precedent for centuries of mortal male domination and female subservience. The depiction of Hera [wife of Zeus and queen of the ancient Greek gods] as a distracting, duplicitous and deceptive woman opened the door for centuries of male insecurity about women, and misogyny.
For the Romans it would have been BC. Right from the start, sex was linked to momentous constitutional development for the Roman state. The first instance was the BC rape of the Sabine women — a carefully executed example of nation building in which the Romans replenished their dwindling supply of fertile women by carrying off the wives and daughters of the neighbouring Sabines.
