Otto Kiefer argues in Sexual Life in Ancient Rome that this power expressed itself among the mass of the people as sadism in sex as well as enjoyment of the savage spectacles of the games.

Don't believe the bad review -- this is one of the most interesting and original history books I have ever read, and not just on Roman history. Although I am not familiar with the author, Otto Keifer, he seems to have been highly influenced by both Freud and Nietzsche. He states right away that the Roman state was obsessed with the "Will-to-power", and that the priority of any respectable citizen was service to the state. The will-to-power was brought into the home by the rigidly-patriarchal family structure, and that the infamous laws of the Romans were set up to protect his sovereignty and property, which included his offspring, so that a Roman father could, legally, murder his own son. The book is rife with interesting anecdotes and the accounts of ancient historians. What makes the books remarkable is the freedom with which it is written, and the scope of what he covers. My favorite section had to do with the religious cults of Rome, some of which were extremely bizarre and dangerous, such as the Bacchanalia cult around the time of the Second Punic War. The sect became so dangerous (or people got so desperate) that the Roman state had to eradicate the sect by force. Very interesting!

This is a piece of absolute rubbish and comes nowhere near the discussion of the subject matter that it promised. It purported to be a detailed review of the role of sex in Roman life and how it could be argued that degeneration in moral standards contributed to the downfall of the Empire.

Instead, it skirts all major issues and on numerous occasions the author states that he cannot continue on a theme because the words used are too graphic or the topic becomes too innappropriate for this forum. I mean come on, what does a reader expect to learn when they pick up a book titled as such?

We get a seemingly endless cut and paste of Roman poetry which at best discusses the role of love in poetry rather than the thesis title, an overview of marriage law that would be better placed in a legal reference and a brief analysis of a series of emperors with the occasional reference to their sex lives. All in all the book represents to me a collection of sound bites from other academic work, with little originality added and a fearful step back from the precipice just as we ever get close to a new idea.

Very rarely do I do this but my copy is back up for sale and going in the bin if no one else wants to buy it. There are much better pieces of work.
