Researchers Uncover Prehistoric Porn In French Cave

New anthropological findings published in the current issue of The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggest that our cavemen ancestors were also into porn.
The about discovery was made at an excavation of a rock shelter in the Vezere River valley in France. The anthropologists described it as ''the oldest evidence of any kind of graphic imagery," and it's pretty clear that they weren't carving out woolly mammoths (via Sydney Morning Harold):
The drawings include what appear to be images of the female vulva, illustrated by circles with small slits on one side. ''You see this again and again and again,'' Professor White said. There are also very simple images, in profile, of animals, including horses and lion-like big cats, he said.
Obviously, we'll never really t know what significance these paintings held at the very dawning of culture. For all we know, it could have been just some random cave-dude doodling to pass the time.
