Whether they say yes or no to you, all women love to be asked, insists Ovid in his famous seduction manual, The Art of Loving. And he, along with his fellow Romans, had a thousand skillful suggestions for just how to put the all-important question and to obtain the desired-for result.
A follow-up to the highly successful How to Insult, Abuse and Insinuate in Classical Latin, which has sold an amazing 100,000 copies, this humorous illustrated manual on how to make love the Latin way is compiled from the works of the usual salacious suspects: Ovid, Catullus, Martial, Propertius and Lucretius.
The sexual mores of these ancient writers are often surprisingly modern, and also charmingly irreverent. Time-honored chat-up lines, smooth operations, infallible seduction techniques and fascinating foreplay suggestions are here freshly transformed into colloquial English, and other indispensable modern phrases are translated in to classical Latin in a book to add wit to any lover's repertoire.
