Long Time ago i saw some sort of documentary about the chinese rulers of ancient times, and they said that there was an emperor who tried to become immortal through having intercourse with one-thousand (1000) Virgins. He failed, he died somewhere after No 700 and something (maybe from a stroke).

Does anyone know which one of the Chinese emperors he was?
I’didnt really find anything.

The Yellow Emperor -  Xuanyuan was his given name according to wiki.  I’m sure that if he did attempt to deflower 1000 virgins in a row, he would have died before number 700! tongue laugh

I should have been more accurate on the details: Not in a row, but before he would die of other causes, and i dont know if it would have made him immune to Swords, Arrows or 1000 Mothers-in-Law grin

I try to envision the reasoning he had to arrive at that idea, but I keep coming up with the conclusion that he was stupid, both for the whole idea, and for selecting virgins rather than more experienced women.

We are soul mates, Occam. That was my first thought too.

Always with the virgin obsession.  Good lord.  I swear, figuring out the concept of paternity has led to some of the world’s most laughable idiocy.

It looks like Genghis Khan has this guy beat all to hell. It seems that I in 200 men are related to him!

Weird. That’d be only one a day for less than three years. O_o You’d think an awesome legendary ruler would have a bit more virility than that.

The Great Khan’s prodigious humping was just his attempt to make up for his playful romp through the Khwarezmid Empire.

I just don’t get the obsession with virgins. It can’t be much fun to have sex over and over again with women who have no idea what they are doing…I know I would much rather have an experienced lover than a fumbling virgin, they are much more fun.

Somehow I doubt that the empreror Xuanyuan was even aware of STDs or how they were transmitted.

No, then they would just sleep with women in general. I think it is insecurity. A virgin won’t know what a horrid and uncaring sex partner they are.
