Italians love to let their hands do the talking. Here's what they're saying. The fig sign is a mildly obscene gesture used at least since the Roman Age in Italy and Southern Europe and parts of the Mediterranean region, including in Turkish culture, and has also been adopted by Slavic cultures. The gesture uses a thumb wedged in between two fingers. In Japan this sign is called セックス (sekkusu) and means sex.
