Easter was originally the celebration of Ishtar, the Assyrian and Babylonian Goddess of Fertility and Sex. Her symbols (like the egg and the bunny) were, and still are, fertility and sex symbols (or did you actually think eggs and bunnies had anything to do with the resurrection?)

After Constantine decided to Christianize the Empire, Easter was changed to represent Jesus, but at its roots, Easter (which is how you pronounce Ishtar) is all about celebrating fertility and sex.

Have a most enjoyable weekend.
