Item Description...
Prion's internationally bestselling Sex Lives series presents lighthearted accounts of the sexual escapades of major figures in history, politics, religion, the arts, and film. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. In the last 2,000 years the Popes have set the sexual agenda for almost a quarter of the world's population. But while preaching chastity from on high many have practised something altogether more dissolute. The Pope was the most powerful man on earth, and there was no one who could tell him he could not sleep with whoever he wanted. There was a female Pope too, which only became apparent when she gave birth in the street. Added to that there have been pornographers, homosexuals, pedophiles, womanizers, perverts, and good old-fashioned adulterers who have occupied the Holy See. Sex Lives of the Popes is a humorous expose of papal promiscuity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Slightly overrated  Jun 25, 2008
All of the popes I WOULD like to know more about, LACK in this book. That just about resumes it all. We have a saying in our country: "Lots of wool", said the farmer, and he shaved his pig. The book is shamelessly overrated. I thoroughly regret this purchase.
Sex CAN be boring!  Apr 10, 2008
Cawthorne writes well, in an easy-to-read style that is generally enjoyable. The problem starts about half way through the book when you begin to wonder if it is possible for almost every single Vicar of Christ to have been a corrupt degenerate. Was it something in the food they ate, or the air they breathed? Or, you begin to suspect, is this book simply a compilation of rumours? I still don't know the answer to that, and after a while I didn't care as I found my interest waning as yet another innocent virgin or wanton hussy (or sometimes both) ended up in the papal bed. At least I learned that too much of a good thing becomes a boring thing!
I will never feel guitly about anything I do again.  Feb 9, 2008
This book was very interesting but gory--I had to put it down a few times. I thought it was just because I am a female but the male friend who refered it to me, said the same thing. This book is actually very freeing. I also find it amazing how these men made up all these "rules", that they did not live by, themselves. I am furthur convinced that nobody had a choice but be a "christian".

To think they would actually murder each other just to be in power...hmm so much for "thou shall not kill"

I realize the interpretation of these events could be part of the author's imagination, but I dont think he is very far off IF he is at all with the facts.
Not much about Sex Lives of Popes  Jun 5, 2007
This book concentrates mostly on the sex lives of political officials and priests as well as the policies of some popes. It has very little to do with the actual sex lives of popes while they were popes.

Here is what he says about Clement XIII on page 257:

"The most intolerant pope of them all, Clement XIII (1758-69), ordered nude statues and paintings - including the frescos in the Sistine Chapel - to be covered up"

And on page 126:

"Clement VI began a period of unbridled luxury."

How shocking!!! It has little to do with the Sex Lives of Popes.

Half of the popes' sex lives dealt with are ones who were legitimately married and he has basically nothing to say about popes after 1800, except for on page 264:

"John Paul II ... was rumoured [sic] that he was married and widowed." Really?

Cawthorne has a field day with Alexander VI, the most infamous pope of all time.
Sex Lives of the Popes -- a Fascinating Read  May 20, 2006
The author managed to keep an excellent sense of humor throughout the entire book, starting from Peter and ending with the late Jean Paul II. Fascinating, revealing, exposing -- great in one word.

Taboos are shattered, beliefs given new horizons. I recomend this book to any reader. Interesting read.

I liked the phrase "Julius II was an insatiable bisexual"...
