Naughty frolic on Great Pyramid? Not for first time!

December 13, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Egyptian authorities are furious about a video apparently showing sex – real or simulated – taking place on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

A Danish photographer posted footage which appears to show he and a female companion climbing the pyramid at daybreak and posing in a sexual position at the summit. The summit isn’t as pointed as it appears from below.

Photographer Andreas Hvid posted a video to YouTube and Facebook last month. The scenes are all quite tame – yet the vid generated almost 4 million views in a week!

Hvid also posted a photograph of the pair naked on top of each other. That’s the pic causing the fuss.

Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities Khaled al-Anani told Egyptian newspaper al-Ahram that prosecutors were investigating how Hvid and his companion were able to scale the Pyramid of Khufu (the Great Pyramid) and “whether they really filmed an explicit pornographic video atop the pyramid”.

Porn stars, nudists and vandals have defiled historic monuments in recent years and Egypt’s pyramids get their share – sometimes far more explicit than the current example.

A pornographic video was shot at the Giza pyramids and Sphinx in 2015, causing uproar in Egypt. It featured European porn star Aurita, believed to be Russian, in graphic sex scenes while visiting the pyramids.

In the 2015 incident, the porn star and her camera team managed to latch on to an unsuspecting guided coach tour of ancient sites. The actress was seen complaining constantly into the camera about the scenery, the locals, the souvenirs – just about everything – before flashing parts of her body. The movie culminated in graphic pornographic scenes involving the actress and a male co-star.

The incident trumped a spate of tourists stripping naked and photographing each other at World Heritage sites including the Angkor temple complex in Cambodia and Machu Picchu in Peru.
