||Yes, we all know about Roman orgies. Oh, those Romans! Always with the orgies!
But, you know what? The orgies were what the emperors and his cronies did. The regular people, the everyday people like you and me (well, not like you and me ferheavenssake, this is adequacy!) were rather prudish.
Roman women did not uncover their "dirty pillows". Sex during the day was something reserved for the honeymoon only.
So, for "everyday people" like Berkley extension/adult ed students to have an orgy was quite non-Roman Empire-like.
But, I agree, Trajan kicked major Parthian ass and then came back to Rome and built a cool shopping mall to celebrate. And Mussolini plowed it under to build a parade street.
