High Fidel-ity

High Fidel-ity

You want to improve your sex life? Well, it's easy. All you have to do is create a leftist coup and become the dictator of a small Caribbean nation.

If reports from Page Six are to be believed, Cuban leader Fidel Castro blows Gene Simmons out of the water. According to a new documentary, Castro has slept with 35,000 women over the years. One of his former officials, "Ramon," told a filmmaker that el comandante has slept with at least two women a day for the past 40 years.

"I don't think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as president," "Ramon" told documentary filmmaker Ian Halperin.

Can you imagine the conversation Castro had with each of his lovers? They probably would have gone something like this:

Dalia: So, Fidel, what's your number?
Fidel: Mmm, we're talking ballpark figures here, right? Because I could probably fill a ballpark. What about you, my darling?
Dalia: Um, five.

We're not going to get into what turns him on, because that would be gross. But we are curious if you've had the "numbers" talk with your partner. Did it affect the way you felt about your relationship? We've heard that men tend to inflate their numbers while women will downplay them. Do you think this is true?

Skeeeevy. How did he even have time to stage a coup?
I guess it's true what they say about power being attractive, because Fidel was not an attractive man. At. All.

Wow! I had no idea! That is pretty revolting actually. As for the numbers thing, I don't think the stereotype of men inflating their numbers and women downplaying theirs is true anymore ... or I might just be naive. I actually think many woman have taken the sexual revolution thing a little too far. Now women are sleeping with more men instead of men with more women, which is terribly unfortunate. Now that we've proven men and women can be sluts, hopefully we'll go back to remembering quality over quantity.

He still has some work to do if he wants to catch Wilt Chamberlain.

Wow, that's insane! I can't even stomach that number yet!

I wonder if that's the secret to his longevity or is that insanity?

Cwolf112

Ha! This is hilarious, and gross.
I had the numbers conversation with my husband and thankfully neither one of us had that many to freak out about. It definitely made continuing the relationship that much easier with that out in the open.
