Is this "the world's first men's mag?" Dubbed the Turin Erotic Papyrus, this piece of art is a papyrus scroll painting created around 1150 B.C. and is the only erotic scroll painting that's ever been discovered in modern times. It contains twelve different scenes, and has been interpreted as telling the story of a single protagonist who has several sensual encounters with a female courtesan.
