Naughty Trivia

From The Amazing Book of Useless Information, by Noel Botham

The first nipple rings, called bosom rings, appeared in Victorian Europe in the 1890s. They became fashionable among women, who often wore them joined together by a small gold chain.

In ancient Babylon, all women were required to serve as prostitutes in the temple before getting married.

On the island of Trobriand, a lover customarily bites off his lady friend's eyelashes.

In ancient Greece, young aristocratic wmen were deflowered by having their hymens pierced by a stone penis before marrying.

Beau Brummell started the craze for ultratight men's trousers in the early nineteenth century. Because they were so tight, the penis needed to be held to one side so as not to create an unsightly bulge. To accomplish this, some men had their penis pierced to allow it to be held by a hook on the inside of the trousers; this piercing was called a "dressing ring" because tailors would ask if a gentleman "dressed" to the left or the right and tailor the trousers accordingly. Tailors to this day will ask men if they dress to the left or the right.

The female bedbug has no sexual opening. To get around this dilemma, the male uses his curved penis to drill a vagina into the female.

Oculolinctus is a fetish whereby people are sexually aroused by licking a partner's eyeball.

When Vicks first introduced its cough drops to the German market, they were irritated to learn that the German pronunciation of "v" is "f" - which in German is the guttural equivalent of "sexual penetration." Not to be outdone, Puffs tissue tried to introduce its product, only to learn that puff in German is a colloquial term for a whorehouse.
