Guide to Organizing a Successful Adult Party by Lisa

There’s a ​saying ⁢that goes, “Many hands make‌ light work.” ⁤This can also apply⁣ to sexual encounters. If one-on-one⁤ sessions are enjoyable, imagine the‌ fun⁢ that can⁢ be had with more participants. ⁢However,⁣ adding more people to the mix can also ‍complicate things,⁤ both physically and emotionally. Orgies, while not‌ mythical, are often surrounded by​ misconceptions and myths.

Tracing the ​Roots of Orgies

The⁢ fascination with orgies can be traced​ back to ancient ‍Rome. ⁣The Greek mystery religions, ⁤which were popular during the early Roman Empire, were known for their secretive orgies. The hidden nature of these rituals was intentional, as it gave the participants a⁢ sense of‌ power.

Participants sought​ a “transcendence ​of being”⁤ or a divine ecstatic union. However, some ⁢of these⁢ rituals ‍took a painful ⁣turn. For instance,​ members of cults like Cybele, who worshipped a ⁢eunuch ‍mother ‍goddess, would result⁤ in the frenzied⁤ castration of priests. When the Romans adopted these‌ Greek cults in the form​ of the Bacchanalia, a ​series of festivals praising the Greek god Dionysus, there were reports of orgies ending in violence. Livy, a Roman historian, wrote that the⁤ screams of women and young men being‍ violated were ⁤purposely‍ drowned out by the clashing of cymbals.

However, many historians question Livy’s​ reliability, suggesting that his writings reflect ‍the concerns of Emperor Augustus about​ the “Hellenisation” of‌ Rome. ‍It’s likely that he exaggerated the shocking nature of ‍the cult for added shock value. The state-sanctioned gatherings in 186 AD lost⁣ their ​subversive nature ⁣- and their appeal. The⁣ exact details‍ of the pre-reformation orgies are lost to history,⁣ but by speculating⁢ about what happened, we give orgies cultural significance and power. ​This is precisely how Hugh​ Hefner made his fortune.
