Archaeologists working in a desolate area of northern Australia believe they’ve found the oldest porn ever created. The drawings were made at a large rock shelter named Narwala Gabarnmang, and they depict everyday scenes as well as some pretty steamy sex acts.

If you look closely at the picture, you can clearly see a woman taking it from behind. Other areas of the rock depict what appears to be fellatio, and I’m convinced I can also make out the clear outline of what can only be a Cleveland Steamer. Unfortunately, I’m the only one who appears to be able to see it, and much like inkblot tests, I guess you only see what you want to see.

Some of the drawings at the site were made of charcoal, and that allowed scientists to date them as being approximately 28,000 years old. However, they suspect some may be even older as there is evidence the shelter has been used for at least 45,000 years.

The site’s aboriginal caretakers, the Jawoyn people, first brought the drawings to the attention of Australian officials five years ago because they wanted the site investigated and preserved. There appears to have been some delay because there are no roads in the area, and scientists have to get there by making a 90-minute helicopter trip from the small town of Katherine.

I for one plan to follow this story, and it’s good to see scientists finally doing something cool for a change.
