Some Culture

Y'know, back when I used to be obsessed with Greek mythology in Middle School . . . I don't remember any of my library books mentioning how Theseus fought the Minotaur naked.

Or what an awesome ass he had.

Bonus! Turns out he fought the Centaur naked, too.

  1. I don't remember Theseus, huh. But glad to learn of him now.

    You should post the statue that was on /bara/ a while back. I usually don't get off to them, but man did that thing have a great ass sculpted on it.

  2. Ah, those Greeks. Say what you will about them, but they know how to sculpt an ass.

    Theseus was the one who, y'know, killed the Minotaur. With that whole labyrinth deal. And the red thread. Then he totally shagged the princess. Oh, and when he came back to Athens, he had the wrong sails raised so his father killed himself. DUH Theseus. Greek heroes were always kinda stupid.

    You know, all the Greek Heros were naked whenever they did anything. At least the status say they did ^_^

  4. Heh, yeah. There's a statue of Perseus at the Met in New York that I always used to fantasize about when I went there as an impressionable youth. You need to click on additional views to see his ass, which is the best part. For my money, though, there's no one sexier than Odysseus. Just the way he talks in Homer is incredibly hot.
