Len goes far beyond what we think we know about sex in ancient times, taking listeners on a randy tour of aphrodisiacs and anti-aphrodisiacs, contraception, nymphomania, bisexuality, cross-dressing, and gender-bending. She explains citizens' fear of hermaphrodites, investigates the stinging price paid for adultery despite the ease of divorce, introduces listeners to a surprising array of saucy pornographers, and even describes the eco-friendly dildos used by libidinous ancients. Love also gets its due, with true tales of the lifelong bonds between military men, history's first cougar and her devoted relationship with Julius Caesar, and the deification of lovers.

great for anyone interested in historical sexualit
this is a fun book discussing historical conceptions of sex and sexuality. however unlike many books that tackle this subject it is not a drug affair, bit is rather a kind of romp through historical lives that never flags in interest color and humor.

Funny, Insightful and at Times Crass. <br />
This book was fun. This should in no way be a reflection of the books academic integrity, which is solid. I would recommend it to anyone interested in this topic - partially those who are not prudish.
