That's a pretty ignorant quote....
The lives of many historical figures including Socrates, Alexander the Great, Lord Byron, Edward II, Hadrian, Julius Caesar, Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo DaVinci, and Christopher Marlowe included or were centered upon love and sexual relationships with people of their own sex. Terms such as gay or bisexual have been often applied to them. Some, such as Michel Foucault, regard this as risking the anachronistic introduction of a contemporary construction of sexuality foreign to their times , a view that is increasingly challenged.
A common thread of constructionist argument is that no one in antiquity or the Middle Ages experienced homosexuality as an exclusive, permanent, or defining mode of sexuality. John Boswell has criticized this argument by citing ancient Greek writings by Plato, which he says indicate knowledge of exclusive homosexuality.
Actually, it seems many instances in history were even more accepting of homosexual acts than today. It predates Christianity!
Now on to your silly notion of having sex with as many women as possible before dying.. Well I feel the same way, then again, I'm 23 and pretty close to growing out of that ideology.
I find it hilarious that lesbian sex is thought of as a turn on and yet gay male sex is a no-no. I guess people should just live the lives you want them to, huh?
