The Indie surveys sex, including Greeks and Romans

The Independent
An article in the Indie under the title ‘A brief cultural history of sex’ begins:

Aphrodisiac, eroticism, homosexuality, narcissism, nymphomania, pederasty all
these terms are derived from the language of ancient Greece which tells you
something about its society.

No it doesn’t. Telephone, telescope, aeroplane, aerodrome, astronaut, cosmonaut are all derived from ancient Greek, but that doesn’t tell us that ancient Greece was a highly technological society. Still, don’t let me stop you enjoying the article!

‘Schola’, a forum all in Latin

Here is the address for this site, set up, fairly recently by the look of it, by Evan Millner.

Berlin Kiss-fm Latin Day – with pictures

Kiss-fm website

A
mani ad meridiem in aedibus stationis radiophonicae KISS tempora
Caesaris rediisse videbuntur. Viris quibusdam doctis adiuvantibus, qui
in Universitate Libera Berolinensi litteris student, turris KISSalis in
frequentissimum forum Romanum mutabitur.

Ut
enim dies festus linguarum Europae celebretur, KISSus FMus linguae
paene mortuae animam novam inspirat. Tempore matutino Nora et
Bastianulus nulla nisi Latina verba proferent. Claudia nuntios Latine
versos leget, Bastianulus rhapsodias congestuum Latine recitabit, omnes
ludi lucrum ferentes Latine indicentur.

Hic inspice quae praecipua exspectare possis die illo linguae Latinae festo apud KISSum FMum.
