Well, this site is actually quite interesting. GO VISIT IT if you are so inclined. Here is some of the data to be mined from

Most Expensive Prostitute

Most ExpensiveIn Demetrius, the great historian Plutarch writes of how Demetrius Poliorcetes, king of Macedonia (337? - 283 BC) paid for the services of Lamia, a beautiful Greek courtesan:

Of all the disreputable and flagitious acts of which he [Poliorcetes] was guilty in this visit, one that particularly hurt the feelings of the Athenians was that, having given command that they should forthwith raise for his service two hundred and fifty talents, and they to comply with his demands being forced to levy it upon the people with the utmost rigor and severity, when they presented him with the money which they had with such difficulty raised, as if it were a trifling sum, he ordered it to be given to Lamia…

A Greek talent is approximately equal to 25.8 kg. of gold, which is currently being traded at $313 a (troy) ounce. Hence, Poliorcetes shelled out the equivalent of $64.9 million.

Earliest Cross dresser

Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, reigned from 1472 to 1458 BC. Ascending the throne in 1512 BC, she was married to Thutmose II. Together they reigned for three or four years, until he had a son Thutmose III, born to a commoner. When Thutmose II died, Hatshepsut presented herself as the young king's regent and effectively took control of the government. She crowned herself pharaoh, took a Horus name (limited to kings and hence males), and adopted masculine poses and pharaonic regalia, even wearing the symbolic royal beard.

Highest National Rate of Rape

Much to their chagrin, South Africa has the highest incidence of rape in the known world. Figures released by the South African Police Service show 64,000 incidences of sexual assault in the country in 1999, for a rape rate of 116 per 100,000 people. Unbelievably, this is thought to be the lowest estimate—officials believe the actual number to be 20 times higher.

Things have gotten so bad that some companies have begun to offer rape insurance. The plan will offer a toll-free hotline, counseling, support groups and assistance filing charges against the attacker. The policy also covers anti-retroviral treatment, prophylactic treatment and HIV testing (Africa also has the highest incidence of AIDS in the world).

Oldest Aphrodisiac

The mandrake (Mandragora officinarum) has been popular since antiquity as an aphrodisiac. A member of the potato family, the plant is adorned with a large dark-brown root, small red fruit, and contains the alkaloids atropine and scopolomine, which, alas, do not possess any lovemaking attributes. In mild doses mandrake can induce drowsiness, but in larger doses it can be a deadly poison. The supposed connection to horniness is believe to stem from the similarity between its root and the human genitalia, though presumably the relation is more lucent after sampling the plant.

Still, there is startling biblical evidence that the stuff actually worked, to wit: "...And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night." (Genesis 30:16). In other words, the real value of this weed is not in its medicinal qualities, but as a bribe to your prospective bedmate!

Youngest Mother

The youngest mother whose history is authenticated is Lina Medina, who delivered a 6½-pound boy by cesarean section in Lima, Peru in 1939, at an age of 5 years and 7 months. The child was raised as her brother and only discovered that Lina was his mother when he was 10. And you thought teenage pregnancies complicate matters.
Girls such as this suffer from a hormonal imbalance, or precocious puberty, which is characterized by premature secondary sex characteristic development. In a small percentage ovarian and uterine development appropriate for fertility also occurs, making pregnancy possible. Lina, for instance, began menstruating at age 3.

The full details of this event was witnessed by Edmundo Escomel and written up in the Dictionary of Medical Science, May 1939. For the original French text click here. For an English translation, click here.

Largest Penis

The average penis size for white males is about 6.2 inches, so if you don't quite measure up, don’t worry: penis size has relatively little to do with one’s capacity to pleasure. Remember: it ain’t the meat, it’s the motion.

The largest erect member in medical literature would be the 14-inch organ mentioned by Dr. David Reuben in his book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (1969). Reuben didn’t divulge any source for this figure, and there was no independent verification, so you may question his accuracy. The largest medically verified penis on record is 13.5 inches long and 6.25 inches around, documented in the early twentieth century by Dr. Robert L. Dickinson.

Other sources (Alfred Kinsey, Masters and Johnson, etc.) mention specimens ranging from 9.5 to 12 inches.

Then there are the dubious claims of immense penis size by various personages operating within the sex industry (read: porn actors). These claims are almost invariably false, the result of exaggeration and hype by unscrupulous dealers hoping to hawk more products. Take the legendary Long Dong Silver, for instance. Made famous by the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearings, his one enduring trait was his supposedly 18-inch penis. Totally fraudulent, as it turns out; in fact, there are videos in which he appears only normal sized.

Incidentally, if you wish to pursue this matter on your own (anticipating a slow weekend, perhaps?) you measure along the top.

Most Dangerous Sex Technique

Undoubtedly the most dangerous singular activity would be autoerotic asphyxiation. Usually performed by adolescent males, this technique is the deliberate constriction of blood flowing to the brain while, uh, masturbating. The lack of oxygen produces lightheadedness, supposedly enhancing the sexual experience.

As you can imagine, squeezing the blood out of your brain isn’t the healthiest of activities. On occasion the carotid artery collapses, producing unconsciousness in seconds, and eventually death. One researcher estimates 500 to 1000 deaths annually nationwide, so this is not something you should approach offhandedly. Also, not only do you run the risk of dying, you also risk looking incredibly stupid when they find you.

Want to know more? Check out The Breathless Orgasm: A Love map Biography of Asphyxiophilia by John Money et. al (1991).

In his book The Sex Chronicles Lance Rancier outlines an extremely dangerous act once practiced by Asian prostitutes:

[Japanese prostitutes working] in the Hong Kong harbor offered the ultimate pleasure to a man. The service was expensive to the man and dangerous to the woman. The Sampan girl, working in a boat, leaned over the side of the boat and ducked her head into the water. The customer entered her from behind, experiencing exquisite vaginal spasms around his penis as the woman reacted to her near drowning. She pulled herself out of the water just before she lost consciousness, usually after the client had experienced an intense orgasm.

Needless to say, you shouldn't try this at home.

Most Marriages

Fath-'Ali Shah of Persia (1771-1834)—1000 wives
Taking the Scriptural assurance "Instead of thy fathers thou shalt have children, whom thou mayest make princes in all lands" to heart, the Shah wedded an extraordinary amount of women to birth his princelings. The Nasikhu't Tavarikh, a great modern Persian historical work, fixes the number of his wives at over 1,000. He distributed his colossal male progeny in every government post throughout the kingdom, much to the mortification and sorrow of its citizens. Hence the Persian proverb "Camels, fleas, and princes exist everywhere."

King Solomon of Israel (c. 973-c. 933 BC)—700 wives
The third king of Israel he reigned some 40 years, during which time he enjoyed 700 wives and from 60 to 300 mistresses. His women were both Israeli and foreign, taken to further political alliances and were among the most beautiful in all antiquity. Although polygamy was the matrimonial standard of the time, later rabbis claimed that Solomon's single son was proof of punishment by God for Solomon's violation of monogamy.

Queen Kahina of the Berbers (c. 650?-702)—400 husbands
Chief of the Berbers in Northern Africa, Kahina relied on her cunning and indomitable will to withstand the Arab invasions of her homeland. Not much can be definitively said about this enigmatic figure. She was not especially attractive—later Arab historians unflatteringly describe her as "fleshy"—but was such a intriguing figure that centuries after her passing she was still romanticized in French literature. In one account it is said she ruled over a mighty harem of men, servile and willing to accommodate her every wish.

Most Profitable Porno Film

Deep Throat, the bawdy 1972 flick credited with launching the modern porn industry, raked in at least $100 million following its release. With a total production cost of only $22,000 the film is believed to have the highest budget to box office ratio for an X-rated film in the world: 1:4,546.

Largest Breasts

Large breasts are another subject that appeals to MD’s prurient interests, so cases are bountiful in sex literature. After reviewing a number of photos (hey, it’s all for science), I’ve seen mammaries ranging from huge to unimaginably colossal. "The Sexual Anatomy of Woman" by W. F. Benedict tells the cases of one 14-year-old who had breasts weighing 16 lbs. and of a woman of thirty who had knockers weighing 21 pounds each. Another book, Human Oddities by Martin Monestier, thoughtfully encloses a topless photo of a woman with 44-pound breasts measuring 33 inches in circumference.

Now it seems China wants in on the act. In 1995 their official news agency Xinhua ran the headline, "Twelve-year-old Sprouts Gargantuan Breasts." Sounds like our kind of journalism. "Each breast of Ting Jiafen, of Changba village, Gudong Township, Pingtang County, has grown to dimensions of 48 cm long and 30 cm high, weighing about 10 kg," it reported (meaning Ting would wear a size S bra, assuming they made them that big). Her mother, Chen Guoxia, elaborated, "Her breasts began to grow last February, and they were as large as fists by May, getting bigger and bigger afterwards."

Whatever might be said about her breasts from an aesthetic standpoint, they've been nothing but trouble for Ting, who's been plagued with health problems. In early 1993 she became ill and lost the ability to walk. She recovered, but then suffered blindness and now has to quit school to undergo hospital treatment
