In his article the author presents the analyses of cultural phenomenon of eroticism as it is found in societies of archaic and early traditional type. The study rests on author's distinction between love, sexuality and eros (in a narrow sense) that constitute the integrity of erotic subjectness. Main practices of eroticism are divided into mundane and sacred aspects where the former includes matrimonial and non-matrimonial traditions and the latter is presented by fertility rituals, sexuality as an instrument of worshiping gods and hierogamy repetition rites.
