Did sex toys provide a lift?There's evidence that the sex industry may indeed be one the world's oldest trades. Take the 4,000- to 6,000-year-old phallus-shaped bone from Sweden shown here, for example. Archaeologists said the shape of the carved antler bone is unmistakable, though how it was used remains an open question.

Other archaeological digs, notably at Hohle Fels in Germany, have encountered even older figurines and carvings with clear sexual themes, including a sexually explicit figurine of a woman dated to 35,000 years ago and a dildo-shaped object from 25,000 years ago.
It's like I've been saying for years, porn and sex-objects go back to the stone age. Humans are just freaking horny...
