Although much has been written about the political and military life of Hannibal, very little has been written about his personal, and thus sexual life. We extrapolate for you from various Latin and Arabic texts how his sexual life would have been, as a young citizen of Carthage and the favorite positions he enjoyed...
As recorded by Livy and other historians, Hannibal was perhaps the greatest military commander of all time, second only to Alexander the Great, but this is of course debatable and many consider him the great commander.
He was a man of boundless energy, a warrior but also a man with plenty of sexual energy to and here we will look at some great sexual positions which are still popular today and some of the powerful herbs he took to keep his libido strong.
Carthage and Bal
Carthage was the major city of the Phoenician colonial expansion on the African side of the Mediterranean. Their religion was the old religion of Babylonia with the god Bal as the principal deity.
The use of sex and temple prostitution is well documented, and indeed, the young Hannibal would have enjoyed these religions experiences along with the rest of the male population. The most popular and acceptable means of temple sex was the "Sacrifice of the Maiden" position.
Hannibal would have indeed partaken of it. Here is how it was done.
A large stone table representing an alter was situated in the middle of a room. Your kitchen table can easily substitute for the alter.
The maiden would be lying on her back on the table in a sort of way to suggest her coming sacrifice. Hannibal would approach, and using his sword (and in this case, erect penis) penetrate and sacrifice the maiden.
To do this, she would first turn over on her stomach and gently slide her feet to the ground. The height of the kitchen table is perfect for this.
Hannibal would then approach her from the rear and penetrate her.
As this was a Bal ceremony, both vaginal and anal penetration was encouraged. After some time of Hannibal rummaging the maiden thoroughly, the maiden would again turn on her back, but still have her legs off the table, and in the air, she would rest her legs on Hannibal's shoulders. Here is the real sacrifice is made.
Hannibal would then re-penetrate, her the maiden's legs high on his shoulders and continue thrusting in the manner of the bull (Bal was a bull).
The trusts the very deep and powerful, and in a constant and moderate continuous rhythm.
In this position (if done on the kitchen table) one must remember to make sure the table is stable, as the thrusting is intense and constant.
As if in the religious ceremony to the god Bal,
Hannibal would stop thrusting before his crisis and again change the position of the maiden. She would come off the table, to a kneeling position on the floor and then engage in fellatio.
As Hannibal would finish, he would proclaim some of the Bal odes (as discovered in the many Bal temples from Mesopotamia). The maiden would then escort Hannibal to a nearby bed for rest and relaxation until he was reinvigorated and ready to proceed again.
Increasing Sex Drive
Hannibal took great pains to get "herbs from the East" to maintain his powerful sex drive These herbs are popular today and were bought by traveling monks and included the usual ones you have heard of like Horny Goat Weed and Ginseng but other less well known but equally powerful - Cnidium, Schizandra Berries and Cistanche Bark.
Today, these herbs are actually known to increase nitric oxide levels ( the key to a firm hard erection), help blood circulation and pump it to the extremities, boost testosterone and increase energy.
Many people think these herbs are new for sexual wellness but they have been used for thousands of years.
