Before the advent of Roman and Egyptian civilizations, orgies were not a common phenomenon. Earlier, there were only groups of people having sex in almost unsophisticated clustering. Many tribal cultures in Egypt and Rome were involved in sexual rituals associated with spring and fertility. However, such stories have not been well-documented.
It took a lot of time before people finally invented a word for group sex. Soon, the childlike fun and excitement of random sex was turned into a societal institution. Egyptians and Romans were quite obsessed with sex. When these people were not busy waging wars, inventing architecture, performing rituals or writing texts, they were involved in group sex and orgies. Since Romans and Egyptians were obsessed with sensuality and sex, orgies were very common among them.
In fact, Romans and Egyptians also had wine and sex deities. However, since they were a bit less pious than other civilizations, they considered orgies to be a social ritual. Orgies in Rome were usually associated with extravagant dinners staged by the powerful and wealthy people of the society.
People would combine sex with unlimited drinking. Egypt, group sex was not so lavish. It wasn’t just confined to the ‘super’ rich or powerful people.
