Stonehenge Depicts Female Genitalia, Researchers Say

Tue July 8, 2003 03:37 PM ET

By Amran Abocar
TORONTO (Reuters) - Stonehenge is a massive fertility symbol, according to Canadian researchers who believe they have finally cracked the mystery of the ancient monument in southern England.

In the arrangement of the stones, the researchers say they have spotted the original design: female genitalia.

The theory is laid out in a paper entitled "Stonehenge: a view from medicine" in the July issue of Britain's Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

"To the builders of the henge, the most critical events in life were birth and death," Anthony Perks, a retired professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of British Columbia, wrote in the paper.

He noted there was no evidence of tombs built by the original builders.

"Of birth, we could expect little evidence. However, evidence may be there but so large as to be overlooked."

Viewed from above, Perks suggests Stonehenge's inner bluestone circle represents the labia minora and the giant outer sarsen stone circle is the labia majora. The altar stone is the clitoris and the open center is the birth canal.

"Could the outer avenue of Stonehenge...represent the way by which new life entered?" the article wondered, adding that when comparing "the layout of the henge with the anatomy of the human vulva. There is a distinct similarity."

Perks, who is traveling in England, could not be reached for comment.

The mysterious ancient monument on Salisbury Plain is recognized around the world for its circle of standing stones.

Perks said the ancient sacrificed child found at nearby Woodhenge bolsters his theory and said an excavation at Stonehenge could produce a similar find.

"In ancient societies, ideas of a dominant creator, a Mother or Earth Goddess, were widespread," Perks wrote. "If ideas of Earth Mother originated with, or were shared by, the people of the henge, Stonehenge could represent, symbolically, the opening by which Earth Mother gave birth to the plants and animals on which the ancient people so depended.

"The henge would honor her for giving them both life and livelihood."

Scholars say Stonehenge, a World Heritage site, was built between 3000 and 1600 BC. Theories for why it was built range from a temple, an astronomy site, and a variety of spiritual and temporal purposes.

For a time during the Bronze Age, 2000 BC to 800 BC, Stonehenge was used for ceremonial burials of local chieftains.

Female genitalia, huh? They must have tricked their men into building it saying it was something else...

ya that makes a sort of sense, even if it doesn really look like it. You'd think they would be able to make it look at little more similar

I don't see how it can represent female genitalia. FUNNY: did ANYONE but me notice that the researcher's name is "PERKS"?

I dont know if i believe it or not, but im sure it was made to represent something important. The big rocks were probably set up by men, so a vagina isnt too far out of the question.

It could be that, my theory is that a bunch of drunken ancient college students just did it for the hell of it though.

So Stonehenge was built by stone fetishists!!?

Yeah, thinking about it I suppose it makes a kind of sense... No latex, no leather, just stone (I guess that's why it was called the "stone age").

You are, of course, perfectly welcome to it. It's kind of a shame though that it's broken. I was just pointing out the total lack of anatomical correctness.

And what about the Grand Canyon? Definitely not a phallic symbol. Even the name belongs to ya'all.

ummm but if I remember correctly the original configuration is quite different than the one from today. That being said... maybe the new one does represent some porn

ROFL!

Anyway, I always thought it was an astronomical/seasonal(?) instrument, something that would help ppl figure out when to sow and harvest and get drunk on all those pagan parties.
The whole vagina thing seems kind of far fetched to me.

Ok, so, if the heelstone is the clitoris, and the alter stone is the 'G' spot then it might work.

Not a bad rendition, at least of the clitoris, but still a far cry. You would think that they could've made it more vertically elongated.

I wouldn't doubt that the theory is true. It's only that sort of motivation that can make a team of men move stones that big. I wonder... did the builders of the great pyramids get blowjobs every night? That probably did the trick.
