History’s greatest lovers – Sex animals you should know about (part two)

The history of mankind is full of weirdos and perverts. Their sexual appetite and skills were formidable, and their notorious reputation is making us question ourselves even today. Like we said in part one, it’s probably because there wasn’t anything else to do anyway, but nevertheless, most of these absolute champions deserve to be mentioned from time to time.

Giacomo Girolamo Casanova (1725 – 1798)
You’ve probably heard of this gentleman, right? Judging by his voluminous memoirs, Casanova slept with thousands of women and 116 of them have been officially identified. The life of this Italian adventurer was a wild quest for sensual pleasures. His specialty was seduction of women and daughters of his own friends, sometimes all at once. When asked what’s his favorite food, he quickly replied “Women”.

Empress Catherine the Great (1729 – 1796)
The sexual apetite of this famous Russian ruler was insatiable. She preached the necessity of daily sex – at least 6 times a day, she had 21 official lovers and around 80 others that no one knew about. She also suffered from insomnia, which she believed can only be cured with vicious sex, and enjoyed to watch others in action.

Marquis de Sade (1740 – 1814)
Count Alphonse Francois de Sade (who just liked to be called Marquis) has lived for seventy years, going from one scandal to the next and each was nothing but pure perversion. He became famous after the Rose Keller scandal, when he tortured this Parisian prostitute, after which he also took part in the Marseilles scandal – orgy which included torture, homosexual relations and even poisoning participants. He wrote a series of novels and dramas including “120 Days of Sodom”, and eventually ended up in a mental hospital where he spent the last 11 years of his life.

Sarah Bernhardt (973-933)
“The Divine Sarah”, as Oscar Wilde called her, had more than 1000 lovers, mainly famous poets, writers and musicians who found her to be their muse. She often slept in a coffin made out of rosewood and filled with love letters of her admirers. Ain’t that rock ‘n’ roll or what?

Lola Montez (1818 – 1861)
She started using her pretty body to make cash when she was just thirteen years old. But Lola was picky nontheless, as she, for example, refused to sleep with Polish prince because of his false teeth. Having changed three husbands and countless lovers (among them Franz Liszt and Alexandre Dumas), she became the mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria who made her Baroness. She had him by the balls, which eventually cost him his crown. Her specialty was – the perfect control of certain muscles, so she could give at least ten orgasms a day to any man! After the abdication of King Ludwig, she fled to America where she spent her old days caring for women who have “deviated from the right path”.
