    Masturbating into the Nile river.


    This was both a cultural and religious practice.

    Ancient Egyptians considered masturbation to be extremely important and many of them thought that when a God masturbates, it is some kind of…magic? Some even thought that the Nile river was created that way. Why the Nile river? Well, you have to look at God Atum. Many thought that he created the Nile river by masturbating and the flow of the river represented the frequency of his ejaculations. That’s why the Pharaohs had to ceremonially masturbate into the Nile.

    Well, that was extremely weird to write. Now I know that Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks were equally weird.
