I read somewhere that Cleopatra gave Oral Sex to 1000 romans in one night! Is this true

Assuming the night is 12 hours long, to do 1000, she could only spend 43.2 seconds on each one. If you allow her a half-hour lunch break and five minutes off every hour for a glass of water, that brings her down to 37.8 seconds per blow-job. 32.8 if you include a 5-second change-over time between Romans.

If she gave 1000 blow-jobs in one night, either she was very, very good at them, or the guys had almost no fun at all.

A bit of research has unearthed the following

quote:
Leaving Rome for a moment, Egypt’s Queen Cleopatra VII (69-30 B.C.) had a robust libido on steroids. Known by sobriquets such as “the great swallower,” and “she who gapes wide for ten thousand men,” she was said to be highly skilled at fellatio. Tradition holds that she performed oral sex on a hundred Roman noblemen in a single night (blow jobs evidently were a national pastime in the land of the pyramids—it’s worth mentioning that lipstick was first worn there by women wishing to advertise their fondness for giving head).

But that feat pales in comparison with how quickly Cleopatra met the eligibility requirement for becoming a High Priestess of Aset, which was having fucked 1,000 men. The story goes that it took her only 10 days to accomplish this, although some hyperbole may be assumed.

Well, there was the Houston 500. It would seem that one can, um...finish themselves, and still have it count.

Or, maybe it's just been mis-translated. Maybe she 'licked 1000 guys', as in beat them up...not off...Well, now I'm stretching I guess [lol]

Hmm, I always wondered why my wife never wears lipstick.

Adam & the Ants did a great song about this. They reckoned on 100 roman centurions at one go, and 10,000 in a lifetime.

But then they also reckoned that antpeople are the warriors.

If the guys were all 17 year old guys... 37 seconds is about thirty too many. [Embarrassed]

That is a story more associated with Empress Messalina.

The story goes that she challenged a prostitute named Scylla to a competition to see how many men they could satisfy in one night. Scylla gave up at 25 and Messalina continued on into the next day.

Suetonius doesn't have the story, as gossipy as he can be.

That sounds unlikely that Scylla would give up that quickly considering that Scylla ate most of Oddyseus' crew. [Wink]

This quote comes from an article that is quoting a book that it doesn't aknowledge. The original book is very dodgy with all the claims it made and doesn't give any references for the claims. For the life of me I can't remember what the book or the sebsite is called. I'll do more research and get back to you.
I don't think any of it is true.
