Many of you noticed something weird about the six Casanovas: They were all men also, they didn't actually include Casanova, because he was on an even more previous list. Obviously, women have been just as slutty as the greatest man-whores in history. But stories about dudes getting laid all the time are usually boasts, while those about women who had sex all day and night tend to be the tragic ones that win Anne Hathaway an Oscar.
But it isn't always about quantity. So here are some historical women whose creative sexual resumes stand up to any man's. When she was 17, they married her off to a guy 12 years older than her. But a year later her cousin decided that it would be a lot more convenient to his career and country if Virginia was available to have sex with someone else. See, at that time, what we now call Italy was a bunch of smaller countries, and Virginia's cousin was part of the group that wanted them to unify.
He took one look at his hot, young, close relative and realized the best plan was to get her to cheat on her husband with Napoleon and hope some political pillow talk could turn the tide. Because 19th-century Europe was apparently an alternate-universe Game Of Thrones, complete with a short guy and creepy family relationships. Continue Reading Below Advertisement Virginia managed to become the emperor's mistress for over a year , and shortly after it ended he sent troops to unite the peninsula.
Historians disagree about how influential she was in making that happen, since various battles and treaties and intrigues were going on at the same time, but she gave herself basically all the credit and was pissed off that everyone else didn't as well. Continue Reading Below Advertisement Even if the countess was a lot less influential with her pudenda than she would like to think, men still found her enjoyable to be around and were willing to pay for the pleasure.
She continued to cheat on her husband and made a nice living from it. Eventually, word got around to the unbelievably rich but famously stingy Lord Hertford, and he offered the countess the original indecent proposal: No one calls you a hooker when you look like this. Continue Reading Below Advertisement There was one catch: She had to do anything he wanted. She agreed, and legend has it that she couldn't sit down for three days. The two also avoided each other after that, supposedly out of "mutual respect.
Peggy married twice and had two children, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. When once asked how many husbands she'd had, she replied , "Do you mean mine, or other people's? Her own autobiography was called Memoirs Of An Art Lover, and yet she didn't manage to mention anything about art until page of a page book, mostly because she had so much to say about men and sex.
When she couldn't get men into her bed by seduction, she would try to use her money. Even as she got older she still wanted to get laid by the hottest guys; well into her 70s she was hitting on men in their 20s. Unfortunately for Peggy, she wasn't as pretty as the paintings she collected.
Jackson Pollock said you would have to put a towel over her head to fuck her, but he was no Ed Harris himself, so screw his opinion. She did, however, have a very large "potato-shaped" nose, and commentators have attributed low self-esteem about her looks as well as losing her father at a young age he was on the Titanic as reasons she spread herself around so much.
Because apparently women only want lots of sex if they are messed up in the head. She spent the rest of her life kicking ass and having sex. By the time her father died in , the Portuguese were slave-trading their way all over Africa. Nzinga's brother took over as leader, but he immediately gave the invaders everything they wanted. When the Portuguese started ripping people from their homes and sending them to be worked to death in Brazil, the Mbundu tribe turned to Nzinga to save them.
So she did what a kickass lady needed to do: She had her brother killed and took over. Then she started fighting back. This was insane, since Portugal was one of the world's biggest powers, but she led her armies in guerrilla warfare and held them off for 40 years.
Probably thanks to her epic no-fucks-given stare. She got around this problem by having a giant harem. Yes, women can have hundreds of men that they keep enslaved for sexual purposes. In the past, I mean. Don't go into my basement. She may also have had a fetish going on, because she made all of them dress as women. Legend has it that she managed to combine her two favorite things.
It's tough to pick which hot guy you are going to have sex with each night, so she found a foolproof option: Two of the men would fight to the death , and whoever won would get to sleep with her.
Then the next morning he would be killed as well. No pressure performing under those circumstances. At 75 years old, Nzinga decided she didn't need the harem anymore and disbanded it, but she made an honest man out of one of her youngest sex slaves.
She lived another seven years, presumably a cougar until the end. That is why virtually every king in history had tons of sex outside of marriage. In fact, so few kings were faithful to their wives that it is notable when we know for sure that one was.
King Philip V of Spain was one of those rulers. He wanted it all the time and claimed to get depressed if he went too long without getting laid. It was just that he was also a really, really devout Catholic , and if you were raised in the Church, you know their ideas on sex out of wedlock.
Philip took it all to heart, and even his penis couldn't convince his brain otherwise. That meant his wife needed to be available round the clock for coitus whenever he felt like it. Continue Reading Below Advertisement He basically never wanted her out of his sight, so they slept in the same bed during a period of history when that was bizarre, and she attended all his meetings with councilors during the day just in case he wanted a lunch-time quickie.
Both of these women were hugely influential in the running of their country, for one reason only: They literally had their husband by the balls. Maria was married to him during the War Of Spanish Succession. When her husband would talk about it, she would give her opinion of what he should do, and if he disagreed then sex was off the table.
Within a few hours she usually got her way. Not even his armor could contain his boner. Continue Reading Below Advertisement There was no let up for these poor ladies. Even when she was actually on her deathbed, Maria still had to put out three times a day to keep her husband happy.
Within 10 months, Philip was with Elisabeth, and the sexual frustration he felt in the less-than-a-year he was single was so bad he could barely concentrate on running the country.
