In 2004, I researched on sexuality and Ancient Egypt for a masters thesis seminar. My aim was to explore the transformations in sexual practices and iconographical representations between the Pharaonic and Ptolemaic periods, through a comparative study. A full version of the text in available in the form of a free ebook (see below), while a basic English translation of the introductory text can be found here. The research was also published in the Revue d’Études des Civilisations Anciennes du Proche-Orient (RECAPO) 12, p. 33-41, Montreal
"Sexuality in ancient Egypt: a brief comparative study of the transformations between the Pharaonic and Ptolemaic periods"
“Initially, the objective of this research is to examine the current state of knowledge regarding sexuality in Dynastic and Ptolemaic Egypt. Secondly, as part of a first problem, we will examine these data in order to determine what were the changes in the conception and practice of sexuality during these two periods. A second issue consists in qualifying this analysis by examining the more or less important dichotomy found in the Ptolemaic period between Greeks and native Egyptians. The analysis in synthetic form of these transformations will allow us to establish the level of sexual transformation that took place between these two periods through the different strata of society."
