Ancient
I found these pictures in an article in Iranica Antiqua in our library. "The Iconography of Pre-Islamic women in Iran" (Aurelie Daems. Iranica Antiqua. Vol 36, 2001, p1-150) and
"Eine Kneipe in Susa" (L. Trumpelmann. Iranica Antiqua. Vol 16, 1981, p35-44). There is a section on "erotica" in the 150-page masters thesis. The figurines and tablets in the following pictures are from the Neolithic period (8th millenium) all the way down to Sassanian times. The explicit tablets are mostly from Susa. Only the styles and focus of the art have changed down the ages.

Pictures 1 thru 6 are all from Susa. They are dated between 1900-1200BC, and belong to the Elamites. The last 2 pics are from Sasanian times.  Pic 7 is a mosaic from 3-4th century AD from Bishapur. The last pic (#8) is the "beloved wife of Shapur III" dated 4th century and in Pahlavi script.
