For about 700 years, between 100 and 800 AD, the Moche civilization flourished along the coast of what is now Northern Peru. The precise details of their political structure, religious followings, and eventual societal collapse are still very much up for debate, but what is conclusively known is that the Moche were skilled with pottery and ceramics. The vessels they created served both practical and artistic purposes, and as archeologists have repeatedly discovered, one of the Moche's favorite themes was sex.
