9780060925994: History Laid Bare: Love, Sex, and Perversity from the Ancient Etruscans to Warren G. Harding

A large number of famous artists, writers, philosophers, statesmen, scientists, and even saints recorded their thoughts about sex in diary entries, memoirs, love letters, poems and jokes. In History Laid Bare, Zacks unearths scores of these intimate writings. The result is a provocative, engaging and funny look at a rarely seen side of history.

Review:

A book that illuminates the underbelly of history, telling you about everything that your history teacher never did. From Cleopatra's seduction of Marc Antony to Leonardo DaVinci's dirty jokes, from the virginity tests of Joan of Arc to Toulouse Lautrec's admiration of redheads, Zacks digs up the dirt on the celebrities of yesteryear.

From the Publisher:

A delightful, eye-opening romp through the censored side of history.
