As part of a religious ceremony the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt used to masturbate into the Nile. Such an act today would certainly raise the ire of authorities in just about any country, bar Sweden. If it was conducted by a member of a royal family or a world leader you can bet your money that it would be plastered over the front cover of every tabloid newspaper the world over.

The ancient Egyptians held a strong belief that male masturbation was extremely important. It was even more important if it was performed by a god. When a god masturbated there was a belief that it was magical or even creative. To place the importance of male masturbation into context, and the reason the Pharaohs were required to masturbate into the Nile, you need only look at the god Atum. It’s said that he created the universe when he masturbated to ejaculation. Furthermore, the very flow of the Nile itself was said top be connected to the frequency of his ejaculations. It was for this reason that the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were required to ceremonially masturbate into the Nile.
