• Welcome to the Sanctuary, Guest.

And let me tell ya, I always found porn in the 1980s and earlier to be ugly. I mean I don't know why but I feel people today are way more good looking then people in the 70s and under. Especially the women. The women here have small tits and bushy pussy, yuck. I think at the very least the 80s introduced Arnold Scwartznegger and the whole body building craze that came with with made both men and women build sexier bodies then people from before.


But as to the movie itself, at this point knowing about Caligula's life story, I feel it was appropriate that it be a straight up porno because the sheer decedence that was this man's reign and life. Julius Caesar and Octavian Augustus must be rolling in thier graves if they knew their successors ended up the way they are.

And fuck me was his assassination even more brutal then Caesar's. No fuckin mercy to even children. All I can say is this is a case study of what happens when a man is born into having everything and knowledge of a great legacy that was bestowed upon him. Of course he will see himself a god.

The whole movie is on youtube right now, watch it if you dare. To be honest I was barely aroused by this and more "yuck" in most of the porno scenes. I watched it more to fully understand the history of this man and how Rome devolved into immediete decadence after the work of Octavian. The early years of the Roman Empire proper were not that great.

Unfortunately I haven't watched the movie so these are only two side notes, but there is much reason to believe that what we "know" about Caligula is actually autistic Romans fucking around with propaganda, sometimes decades after his reign. Was he a twat? Perhaps, but it is for example unlikely that he had sex with his sisters and even more unlikely that he pimped them out to other men.

Which is a bit of a shame because if you ask me that shit has a certain kinky appeal. (Kappa.) Feeding random audience members to wild beasts because they ran out of prisoners, again, it could have happened but if I had to bet I'd say these are the "Trump peed on Obamas bed" level stories.

The second note: you'd probably enjoy I, Claudius which is a really great show from the 70's.

[font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Same here. From clothing, to hair style and make-up, to cameras, everything has improved since then.

There is that scene in a fiction book in which the planet is about to be destroyed by aliens and humans decide to make a huge orgy in the streets.


Guess when humans see the future as nothing to look forward to, hedonistic sex becomes quite attractive.

One of these days, I wanna see a movie that effectively shows someone NOT going corrupt with a bunch of power. There's probably a good one out there I'm not thinking about though.
