The lava that poured over Pompeii’s victims, in what is now Italy, captured their final moments in great detail as the searing pumice and volcanic ash found its way into the house of every individual preserving them in the state they were in.

While many of the people were captured in bed or trying to escape, one was caught in a compromising situation. Although a mere speculation, according to IFL Science the body of the unearthed Pompeii man appeared to be “preserved in the final act of self-love”. This can be attributed to the fact that his hands are clenched where his manhood lies.



Several people made comments on Twitter including one from Andre who said, “This man saw his entire world crumbling to fire and ash and decided to crank one out before facing eternity. Legend.”

People also found a way to make light of the situation as reports from IFL Science mentioned that, “he should have used the time to seek out his loved ones” but instead people are “hypothesizing that’s precisely what he’d done.” Based from tweets such as one from Persian Rose who said, “He died holding his loved ones.”
