But while we gaze at the serene marble statues on display — straining male torsos and soft female flesh — are we seeing what the ancients saw? This was an opportunity for men and older youths to bond and was highly erotically charged.

The sexual profile of greek women

These arrangements might be expected to lead to unhappy marriages, but we do find examples of loving couples. But our reactions are inevitably shaped by the society we live in.

As for marital relations, men seldom married before the age of 30, and apart from the wedding night, it was common for married couples to sleep apart. Edition: Available editions United Kingdom.

Greek women had arranged marriages

Just as young brides were sexy, it was as adolescents that males were found attractive by other men. But taut flesh is still in evidence — and whether the beauty on display is still found sexy ultimately lies in the eye of the beholder.

A brief history of sex and sexuality in ancient greece

Interestingly, the bride becomes a figure of intense erotic interest in 5th-century BC Athens. These different sexual relationships are captured in classical vase painting in strikingly different ways. But whether these scenes reflect the real goings-on at these parties is another matter. In addition to gym-fit, smooth-skinned youths, Greeks also admired the physique of adult men — as the statues of athletes, gods and heroes in Defining Beauty show.

Vase paintings often depict young women putting on clothes and jewellery ahead of their weddings or being led by the hand by their groom, with a winged Eros floating nearby. In terms of art, what I find particularly touching are the tender portraits of wives on tombstones, where women are characteristically displayed as faithful, loving mothers. A new exhibition at the British Museum promises to lift the lid on what beauty meant for the ancient Greeks.
