What Dead Historical Women Can Teach Us About Dating and Sex
"For a long time i rode a sex dating column for the the new york post and i really appreciate that time in my life but since then i started writing about history and politics and every so often often someone comes to me and says would you ever consider writing a dating advice book and i always say the only way i would ever do that is if all of the advice is came from dead historical women and most of it was bad do you say as a joke yes always and then i said it to this one very nice editor on the phone who said well i'd love for you to do that can you can you get it in by june and i said yes and it was the easiest book sale i've ever made shots jets incredible i was gonna say did you sort of like say on to channel these women and because it's all of the advice sound so much in their voice it's just it's so good i'm i've always wished that somehow that would happen to me robert graves deflected criticism of his i claudius novels by telling a reporter that the entire manuscript had been dictated to him by emperor claudius himself in a dream so we don't want to start with that's a real humble brag it's a real humble brag of london emperor came to me and just story so no critiques please no none of none of these women came to munich dream cream i do read a lot of different books about them and took the cool historical tidbits that i found those books that i thought could be transcribed into good good advice for women right now what i really loved how in the insure you talk about how there's always some idiot on twitter that's like oh i wish women were women the way they used to be back in the day and like this book just kind of disproves that whole line of thought that is based on many real only no i'm i i have a twitter account i am yeah i'm familiar with dot com yeah and this totally disproves that way of thinking because women's since the beginning of time have kind and not been that ideal idea woman i think the more things change the more they stay the same and a lot of women in this book are doing things thanks i think we'd be considered very audacious by modern standards i'm kind of fascinated by grace kelly's end of a first date move where she would go into my i room of this and come up with no clothes and that's the way a lot of nudity so nudity in the book i'm also that's something that i really don't associate with grace as kelly in any of her alfred hitchcock movies now i love that and so you use that tibet to have her advice be make your feelings no yes she's real clear a lot of not scared to tell someone how they feel and then a yeah and then you write about how she'd be like go make some coffee and then go into the bathroom and come out naked i was like oh that is insane that that is actually what she did and i love that it's memorable also really feel like a man in the nineteen fifties and sixties when she was doing this probably just think they were making can coffee so let's talk about some more of the advice in the book patra that is the advice for making the first move what can we learn from her on making the first move cleopatra made i moves of really big and she really began her relationships with this very showy entrance entrance a lot of the mist and the stories about cleopatra hinge upon the idea that she was this ravishing beauty and she was us an attractive lady and they're all different ways of being beautiful but by any standards she wasn't especially good looking she was just really audacious basis and she really went for it and when she first met julius caesar she header self smuggled to him inside a federal that was dropped off at his feet feet and then lays blade before whose feet talking about how they could afford to an alliance which is not a thing that you might be able to recreate oh yeah like not necessarily you didn't like UPS to your lover a little desperate if we'd be really audacious lake uh-huh and then when she met mark anthony she had herself taken to him on a golden barge where she designed it to look like she was a goddess and she appeared to him if she was a golden goddess so cleopatra really thought about how she was going to plan her first move oof and i think it an age where a lot of us are very timid and wanna seem cool and have a call me maybe attitude approaching people cleopatra went for it like she went one hundred percent i honestly can kind of relate this particularly i'm on the part on the barge where she's the gold god it kinda can because so nicknamed gone on a first date and then i invited him to my holiday party and my holiday party i was like the star of the show like i i was going around with platters appetizers and like jello shots because this was like whatever like two thousand nine not the shots wherever cool but as i'm going around with platters never like laura oh my god like laura laura and i'm like the star of the show and i kinda take her advice to mean you know just be like the starve make yourself an unmistakable store yes staple star like have the attention be around you and it was like all my friends and it was like my house you know like i was the star of my holiday party and walked around like own my own the place grid right and i want to form an alliance that woman yeah i think that's actually a great way to translate that into modern day advice i feel like throwing party and inviting boys who have a crush on was also so big move i was single gal it usually worked really well unless the person didn't come in which case it felt like you were throwing that party for nine uh all these people are in my house i've got so many shots yeah i've been to your parties and you do throw a very good thank you i'm so you also have a section on slut shaming can you choose to feature josephine baker and that little micro in every possible way hero of the civil rights movement hero of the lost generation yet josephine baker is just the best and if you don't know her by name you definitely know her by image she's the one that has the banana skirt so oh you're right i'm writing in her voice say i'm writing as someone who danced topless and a banana skirt so why her for the slut shaming section i feel like josephine josephine baker is someone who had to go up against a lot of repressive rules of the time and i mean to head to leave america because she couldn't really prosper in america's a black woman and she was someone who i wouldn't say that she had no regard for those rules but she he was able to think about societal rules that served her and once it didn't and follow her own contents and her own desires and mm-hmm she strongly felt and i think many modern day women should strongly feel that her sexuality and her physical desires were nothing to be ashamed of she had a very large sexual appetite she loved having sex with people she had multiple marriages adopted a ton of children those desires did not impede her life in any way indeed the fact that she was comfortable in her body and comfortable with her sexuality is how she she became a great star and it was also because she chose to change her circumstances right by going to harris yeah we actually just did an episode on on if you should move if you you should mirror for data and just for a change of scenery if you're like in a funk also tried to come back to america and change everybody else's circumstances stances andrea four really hard for that i mean you can't obviously say that any one person was responsible for civil rights victories but she had a really huge detained in that

"Acts occur under duress, when there is much to lose and little to gain in the short term during prohibition, the government took away out gall across the country, under the belief that they were carrying the nation of abhorrent behavior, working class folks turned to bootlegging and hoarding to get by and their combined. Efforts, eventually led to the repeal of the Duke oneal law. However, sixteen hundred years earlier, it was a Roman priest who broke the law of the land and his rebellion against the empire did more than change the law. It changed the world. Around two hundred sixty nine AD at the height of the rule of emperor Claudius. The second Rome was on a bloody path of war, and destruction. Claudius needed. His armies to be bigger and stronger. There was only one problem. No one wanted to join up Roman men at the time had no interest in travelling across Europe to fight on behalf of a cruel and despotic leader legend has it. The Claudius was so strong that he could knock out a horse's tooth with a single punch. He had no patience for formalities and positioned himself as the opposite of the aristocratic emperors that came before him. He was a soldier through and through and he expected his men to follow suit because he was a soldier with deep affinity for the military. He had no time for silly things like marriage or family life. In fact, Claudius believed it was the concept of family that was keeping men from joining his ranks, they were soft and weak. He said by getting married and raising children. They were not living up to their full. Potential as soldiers of Rome. However, rather than incentivize new recruits with promises of fame and glory, you know, positive reinforcement Claudius took the opposite approach. He simply banned marriage. It was a harsh move for sure. In one that did not go unnoticed by the church. A local priest did not agree with this declaration. He believe people should be able to pursue their love despite what the emperor thought governments had no right to deny what God had already blessed. Although he knew it was illegal the priest found a way to rebel against Claudius. He began performing clandestine marriage ceremonies for Roman couples looking to build better lives for themselves. Unfortunately, just as had happened with speakeasies during the prohibition the authorities found out about the secret ceremonies taking place, right? Under the emperors knows they arrested the priest and paraded him in front of the prefect of Rome for a trial, neither his testimony on true love or his duties as a man of the cloth made any difference to the Roman courts, he had defied emperor Claudius and made a mockery of his position, the priests fate had been sealed long before his trial. He was sentenced to death, which was to be carried out over a series of beatings, and stonings before his eventual, decapitation audience was going to make an example out of this traitor for anyone else looking to challenge him. So defiantly the priest was held in prison for a short time before. His death and during his stay something unexpected happen..

Then looking forward to seeing how far he can go just like all these three year olds. So give us give us a little bit of flesh. It out your thoughts. There were so many questions that need to be answered whether it was horses stretching out orces that were coming off what tracks including war of will there that was a little bit of you know, the question of the people who were uncertain about what to expect from him. You know, if you wanted to take the wait and see and see what he could do a fast matrix is still quite a bit of moisture in the racetrack at fairgrounds even later in the day by race wealth and into into the evening hours. There underlies the fairground, you know, so has he had kind of dry powdery racetrack to deal with not necessarily. But he answered a lot of those questions of what he what he did. I think that is encouraging is he won the comp in the same manner that every horses won the Kentucky Derby in the last five six years that length length and a half off the pace pounce. Take command hold them at bay through the lane. You know that I over kinda trip length Lincoln and a half off the lead has just been dynamite.

You know, you're not a need the lead horse, and you're not trying to come from way behind which can be dicey in a Kentucky Derby field. So. Stylistically? I mean, just when you're scouting these contenders. And say can they be derby winners? You know, you've got a lot of things are they talented enough or they fast enough or they durable. Will they handle the distance? But also running style comes into play at some point to and he's at least got the right one. He's got a win over the track at Churchill now. I always say I caution people Churchill in the fall the way they're prepared the track and Churchill in the spring or not the same way. The track is main pain and prep. The they put a lot more water on the race track in the spring and tighten it up in the fall temperatures dropping at night. It's a little more powdery blues typically, and this was caught a wet track at Churchill so just because he ran well at Churchill Downs necessarily gonna love the footing from the fall to spring. Let's think at the misnomer people run into, but the fact that he's been stabled at Churchill for an extended time in his career. It's gonna be a home game for him when he gets back to Churchill Downs. Mark Kathy of the shed road there. There's a lot of good positive for world will.

This is so cheesy, but like just being appreciate like being appreciative of every moment and being present. I think that's huge. I think likely. I think being optimistic as far as like always just seeing like the good side of situations is so important, and I think you know a lot of people can combat that and be like, well, I'm not a naturally optimistic person, and it's like, well, no one, really. I just you don't just come out of the womb and you're like, everything is so great. Okay, phone. Like what I think I think your mental like patterns and habits are very similar to like your physical like habits, you know. And so I think when when you want to like install something into like your lifestyle, you've got to be consistent with it right as far as like doing something habitually, like whether it's like making your every morning, whatever. I think your brain works the same way because like I think our brains are so much more powerful and like crazy Alflex only thing. Yeah. And so that's like something when I first out to LA, that's when I really started focusing on like being positive and optimistic because I didn't even like ever like think of that because when you're little. Yeah, talking about that stuff. And then all of a sudden you're like watching documentaries and. Reading books and you're like, wait, I can change my perspective on things. And so I think my last piece of advice is like trading yourself to just always look at like the brighter side of every situation because it helps you to be more appreciative helps. It'd be more present at helps you to feel more fulfilled because even like even like the shittiest things like it can always at least be a lesson of some sort. You know what I mean? Like everything's either a blessing or less than you gotta look at it like that. You can't control like what comes at you, but you can control how you react to it and how you, you know what you can gain from that. And so I think that is those unlimited. I've heard. I love so where can our listeners find you? Okay. I'm just Claudius Lewis ski on everything. I'm going to spell that out. Valid out. Girl s. u. l. e. w. s. This k. guy. i..
