Sinful Saturday: Gandhi, Sexually Enlightened or Slut?

 Today's Sinful Saturday is brought to you by JFrater at ListVerse.

"Fact: Gandhi was a dirty old man

At the age of 36, whilst married, Gandhi decided to become celibate in order to achieve a state of enlightenment (through the Hindu religion). As he got older, he became more and more fascinated with sex to the point that, second only to non-violence, it was the subject he most talked about. In order to “perfect” his celibate state, Gandhi would sleep naked with young naked women. One of the women was the 16 year old wife of his grand-nephew Kanu Gandhi. When he wanted to share his bed with his 19 year old grandniece Manu Gandhi, he wrote to her father and told him that they were sharing a bed so that he could “correct her sleeping posture”. When his stenographer R. P. Parasuram found him sleeping naked with Manu, he resigned in disgust."

So, I'm pretty sure if Gandhi read erotica he would be a little less touchy feely. Here are some nice options for the poor man:

Now lets play a game. Why do you think I picked this these books for our revolutionary friend?

Wow, I never knew that about Ghandi and sex. At least, not in that detail.
Karma Sutra, I get, given his ethnic background.

Course, I've always been of the belief that if folks were generally satisfied in the sex department, then war wouldn't exist.
To me, war is just a perversion for those males who can't get it up.

I knew about the 'tests' but not the naked part.
I had no idea!
