Roman painting achieved a level of perfection that wasn't recovered until centuries later; but, centuries later, the subject matter wasn't close to being as sexually engaging as that presented by the Roman artists. Included here are frescoes, sculpture, and mosaics.

Take a graphic stroll of the Marquis de Sade's home.

Health & Nutrition

American Botanical Pharmacy (Dr. Richard Schulze)
Official Website of Dr. Richard Schulze, the sort of sensible and direct practioner of natural healing and herbal medicine the Webmaster's been searching for. The stress is on prevention, with no sentimental slop attached -- none of the politically correct trash (Since when do political affiliations have anything to do with living a healthy life?) that give natural healers a bad name. Common sense, pure and simple.

Dr. Joseph Mercola
Natural health information and newsletter.

Green Med Info
The world's most widely referenced, evidence-based natural medicine resource, available to everyone.

Marks Daily Apple
"Our ancestors evolved over millions of years under certain environmental conditions. These conditions (the foods they ate, the amount of sun they got, the sort of movement that was required of them to survive, etc.) shaped their genome. While the world has changed in innumerable ways in the last 10,000 years (for better and worse), the human genome has changed very little and thus only thrives under similar conditions. Simply put, if you want a good future you better listen to the past."

"For women with something to get off their chests."

Clean Sheets
Updated weekly, this sizable magazine is "devoted to encouraging and publishing quality erotic fiction, poetry, and art, providing honest information and thoughtful commentary on sexuality to the public, and fostering an ongoing discussion of sexuality." Endless archives; well worth repeated visits.

Freddy and Eddy
A fabulous couples-oriented site. Freddy and Eddy, a couple in a long term monogamous relationship, say: "creating and maintaining this site helps OUR sex lives"; and that's what comes across: they appear to be having a great deal of fun while educating others along the way. Many informative articles, both original and carefully selected from around the Net; plus product, book, video, and site reviews. Also, message boards, picture galleries, and many many links.

Libido: The Journal of Sex and Sensibility
Founded in 1988, Libido was one of the first, and is one of the best, erotica magazines. Included is fiction, photography, essays, news, and poetry that is "sex-positive, gender-equal, and all embracing in terms of sexual orientation."

Mind Caviar
"Food. Sex. Literature. Art."

"We have created Nerve because we think sex is beautiful and absurd, remarkably fun and reliably trauma-inducing. In short, it is a subject in need of a fearless, intelligent forum for both genders."

Ophelia's Muse
"A Tiny Webzine of
Erotic Tragedies."

Sex Education

Ask Uncle Terry
"Uncle Terry (Terrance Lile) is not your typical writer and advisor on adult relationships. He serves frank, down to earth, sometimes brutal advice on sex and life. He uses humor and knowledge gained through extensive reading and personal experience. He has the support of advisors from medical and mental professionals to educators and clergy and pornographers to prostitutes."

Best sex education site for teens in existence.

We want to let people around this country and around the world see what it was or remember their visit here."

Istanbul Literature Review
Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction

The name is deceptive; this is far more than an author's individual site. Many other authors are (quite thoroughly) showcased; also contains reviews, a gallery, and lists contests and events. As the homepage states: "Regular pick of the best new writing & stuff."

"The present editors, Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein, and their friends, decided to create a new kind of magazine—one in which the most interesting and qualified minds of our time would discuss current books and issues in depth."

ShatterColors Literary Review
"Exists to further the cause of shameless displays of emotion, of whatever hue, in literary endeavor. The sensibility of SCLR is entertainment-oriented as well as literary; far from finding these two qualities incompatible, SCLR feels one cannot exist without the other."

Shit Creek Review
Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction

Sonnet Central
"An archive of English sonnets, commentary, and relevant web links and a forum for poets to share and discuss their own work."

Stickman Review
"An online literary journal."

2 Fork Hwy
"Is a website run by two very different writers and two good friends, Katie Arnoldi and Kris Saknussemm. It’s a mindscape where the language fetish is openly celebrated - where we support and promote the work of friends and fellow travelers - and where we investigate and discuss the lives and achievements of some major figures in the arts and sciences."

Yankee Independent
Magazine of Aspiration, Innovation, and Success

Literature & History

The Cervantes Project
Site dedicated to the author of Don Quixote, just about the best novel ever written.

Decameron Web
"A growing hypermedia archive of materials dedicated to Boccaccio's masterpiece."

Lord Byron
Any man who storms about the house firing pistols into the ceiling as his wife's giving birth is OK by us. Site contains many letters and journal entries, chock full of wisdom such as: "And yet a little tumult, now and then, is an agreeable quickener of sensation; such as a revolution, a battle, or an adventure of any lively description."

Marie Antoinette Online
An accurate (unprejudiced) bio, picture gallery, explanation of the "Diamond Necklace Affair," and selected correspondence between Marie Antoinette and her mother.

Online Encyclopedia of Roman Emperors
Even-handed bios of all, with full citation of ancient and modern references; plus family trees, maps, and imperial battles. Choose between a chronological and alphabetical index (the latter includes some empresses). While away time at the office reading of assassinations, incest, insanity, intrigue, and lust.
