Archaeologists just found an 18th Century dildo

It is quite thick and rather large, made of leather and filled with bristles, and has a wooden tip that has preserved in excellent condition.

Archaeologists have unearthed a 250-year-old dildo in an ancient toilet in Poland, because apparently people were horny as hell back in the 18th Century.

Yahoo! reports that while excavating an ancient toilet, the 8-inch sex toy was spotted among fragments of pottery and jewellery.

Other artefacts found in the area, such as swords, suggest that it was once a fencing school. Yes, a FENCING school. Which means some kinky person at fencing school in the mid-1700s had enough of the lesson and took off to the bathroom with their dildo in tow for a different kind of swordsplay.

Archaeologists also guess that said person then accidentally dropped their beloved dildo in the toilet. #18thCenturyProblems

"It is quite thick and rather large, made of leather and filled with bristles, and has a wooden tip that has preserved in excellent condition," said a statement from the country's Regional Office for the Protection of Monuments.

Sure, it doesn’t look like the most appealing thing in the world, especially compared to what we have on the market today, but apparently it was considered high-quality for the time.

We’d just like to take a moment to think about the person who a) took their dildo to fencing school b) decided to use it in the bathroom and c) lost it in the toilet.

There are just so many questions here. Like, were they alone? Did they still have their fencing mask on? Did they yell ‘on guard’ before using it? I guess we'll just never know.
