Throughout history, curiosities about the sex life of celebrities have been discussed. So I researched #sinrecato about sexual preferences from ancient times, since Queen Cleopatra to our days with Prince Charles of England. Here I go:
Cleopatra: the Egyptian queen who we know was not very graceful, but very skilled with her mouth and her power of seduction. It is said that after a battle in which her army was victorious, as a token of her gratitude, the queen gave the nearly 100 soldiers oral sex and later toasted with a golden cup, in which her warriors had ejaculated. No wonder Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony were crazy for her.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: the brilliant Austrian composer and performer had ‘something’ with a cousin and kept in touch through passionate erotic correspondence, in which he confessed her his coprolalic preferences (tendency to say obscenities) and his marked eschatological inclination (pleasure for the excrement).
Isabel II: this Spanish queen went down in history as a nymphomaniac; she had many lovers while she was married. But the truth and a certain degree of reason is that she was not only forced to marry her first cousin, Francis of Assisi of Bourbon, but also that he was actually homosexual.
Salvador Dalí: the famous Spanish painter was very insecure, sexually speaking, to the point that he portrayed it in one of his works: ‘El gran masturbador’ (‘The Great masturbator’) which shows his obsessions and phobias. The painter was a voyeuristic, he enjoyed watching other couples having sex and it is even said that he went so far as to ask Gala, his formal partner, to have sex with other men in front of him for his sexual pleasure.
Arthur Rimbaud: a French poet, one of the greatest representatives of symbolism, had a stormy love affair with the poet Paul Verlaine for years, and they wrote a poem together:
‘Sonnet to the butthole’
Dark and puckered like a purple carnation/, it breathes, sheltered in the moss humbly/, still wet from the love that flows slowly/, through its white buttocks to its fringed edge/.
Filaments like tears of milk/, cried, rejected by the monstrous blizzard/,
crossing small pink mud clots/, where the slope calls them to be lost/.
My Dream has often joined its sucker/; my soul, yearning the material coitus/, made it its teardrop and its purple cries/.
It is the faint olive tree, and the mimosa flute/; it is the tube in which glorious sweets descend:
Feminine canaan amidst humidity, isolated!
Franco, the Spanish dictator: his sex life has been a mystery because it is said that it was almost non-existent. He lost a testicle during the war. It seems that his only sexual relationship was the one where his only daughter, Carmen, was born, although there are strong rumors that said she was not his biological daughter. After 40 years of his death, it is still debated whether he was gay, bisexual or impotent.
Prince Charles: the relationship between the prince and today’s duchess Camilla Parker was long before he married Princess Diana and one of the things that dazzled him was the cheekiness with which she spoke to him. On one occasion she surprised him with some unexpected information: Did you know that my grandmother used to have sex with your great-grandfather? And indeed, Alice Keppel had been a lover of Edward VII. Prince Charles wrote letters full of eroticism to his love, in which he confessed his ardent desires: “I want to be your tampon”.
Well, there you go, I shared famous not-so-secret secrets with you.
