Nearly all of us are watching porn, but how many of us would know the origin of the word porn and what could it mean? Even in the movie My big fat Greek wedding the grandpa was trying to convince us that (nearly) all the words are originating in the Greek language. Of course the word porn also, but it didn't mean a seven veil dancer, but simply a whore. In the hierarchy of the prostitutes it stands (mostly lies) very under all of them.
The Hetaeras stood on the top of the hierarchy, girls with perfect body and assets, cultivated, sophisticated, well aware of the arts, philosophy and politics. Man with a desire and adequate financial background tried to find these Hetaeras. The very best (or most lucky) girls were the partners of important statesman, and even their name remained in the history.
