Image Index > Sex Acts > Anal Sex Around The Wine Bowl

A wild revel around the wine bowl on the top register. To the right of the bowl, an unbearded youth penetrates a bearded man anally, inverting the usual notions of age-appropriate sexual roles. The gender of the penetrated parter to the left of the bowl is uncertain, but a line of ready participants appears to be forming.
