Barebacking was the norm among Vikings
You could bottom for extremely muscular, HOT men with meaty bananas if you were a member the Nordic Vikings. There was one catch – you had to take massive loads.
In fact, the more milk you guzzled down or absorbed, the better. That’s because followers of the Viking God Freyr believed man’s strength came from semen.
The Viking period took place from 793–1066 AD. Men from this era hailed primarily from modern-day Scandinavia; Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland respectively.
Homosexuality and the Vikings
Scholarly research tells us that homosexuality was not regarded by the Viking peoples as being evil, perverted or innately against the laws of nature (Fordham, 2015).
Rather, it was seen through the lens of leader vs. follower, with bottoms being submissive to men who were stronger. By taking in loads – orally and anally – it was believed power could be derived from a god.
Viking Training and Taking Loads
As part of the preparation process in the runup to raiding a city (known as a sack), warriors would battle one another using wooden swords and shields.
Typically, such training sessions contained clades of 20 men.
According to ancient texts, winners and losers of such competitions were divided into two groups. The “vinnas” [Old Norse for winners] and “vatas” [losers].
If you were a loser, you were required to gather with other vatas on one side of a rope line. Vinnas stood facing you on their side.
What Happened If You Lost?
If you were a loser, you were required to get on bended knee and petition the Nordic God Freyr. Your singular goal was to pray for his intervention to become stronger and more agile.
After prayers were over, the action began. Winning Vikings would step over the rope and grab the vatas at will. Resistance was not part of the dynamic.
Should you happened to have been a losing viking, one of two things would happen:
- You would be fed and or;
- You would be bred.
The choice of seeding was entirely the winner’s to make. If you were particularly bad during test battles, it was not uncommon to have three or four vinnas relentlessly pummel you from behind.
Here, you would be passed around from man to man and jack-hammered out. Seminal deposits would be dumped deep inside you – over and over. Not one drop of man-seed could spill as this was considered highly offensive to Freyr.
The ancient texts tell us that losers eagerly took in the winners loads. The reason was simple – they wanted to capture their wisdom, channeled through Freyr himself.
Unlike punitive forms of bottoming that occurred in ancient Rome, Vikings did not see man on man action as a form of punishment. Instead, it was an opportunity for renewal and restoration.
It is believed that the Paris Sack of 845 was in large part successful because the Vikings had trained well in advance of the invasion.
Was this because men channeled Freyr, through semen exchange, in the weeks leading up to this battle? We have no way of knowing. But one can only assume that given Viking tradition, it is entirely possible.
Homosexuality and the Vikings
Male warriors of the Viking period frequently engaged in sex with one another.
It was only after the onset of Christianity that homosexual relations became condemned. But even then, some Vikings did things with one another in defiance of the Church.
