Definition - What does Caligula mean?
Caligula is most remembered for the final two years of his reign where he lived a life of sexual excess while suffering from insanity.
Kinkly explains Caligula
This period of Caligula’s reign was characterized by sexual excess and depravity. During this time he had incestuous encounters with at least two of his three sisters, hosted orgies, and raped male and female courtiers and other individuals. Records show that he also acted as a pimp for his sisters. He showed little regard for the people of Rome and matters of the state and indulged in lavish spending sprees which put the empire in a significant financial hole. He attempted to build the empire’s coffers back up by opening a lavishly decorated brothel in the palace helmed by the wives of local senators. His reign came to an end when he was assassinated by his own guards.
A 1979 film adaptation of Caligula’s life is largely regarded as the most graphic, non-pornographic film ever made for its full-frontal male and female nudity and depictions of oral sex, vaginal sex, sadomasochism, orgies, and incest.
