Carmen 16 – One of the most obscene poems ever written.


I just found out that the most obscene poem, named ‘Carmen 16’, was written in Latin by Gaius Valerius Catullus somewhere between 70 B.C. to 50 B.C.  It was considered so explicit that a proper English translation was not done until the lat 20th century.

You guys can find out more information regarding this poem and also the English translation on the following Wikipedia page:
