"Every woman's husband and every man's wife". Thus is Julius Caesar characterized by Curio, according to Suetonius.
Julius Caesar was a man of great intensity. He openly enjoyed the "company" of both men and women and there were many scandals to go with this. He never hesitated to "borrow" other noblemen's wives and also "lend" his own wife Pompeia. He was notorious for this and a typical ditty of the time, after his triumph in Gaul, says:
"Look to your wives, ye citizens, a lecher bald we bring,
In Gaul adultery cost thee gold, here 'tis but borrowing."
Yes, he was bald and although this did not deter him from his conquests, it was a source of constant bother to him as he was often ridiculed for his baldness, by his enemies. Actually, with all the "borrowing" he got up to no-wonder he made so many enemies. Amongst the ladies he "borrowed" were Postumia, the wife of Servius Sulipcius, Lollia, the wife of Aulus Gabinius, Tertulla, the wife of Marcus Crassus and Mucia, the wife of Pompey, to name but a few.
He married a woman he did not love for the sole purpose of furthering his career. The woman who was closest to him was a certain Servilia, the mother of Marcus Brutus. He spent lavishly on her; he once bought her a pearl which cost him six milion sesterces, which was a great deal of money. It is said that he even had a fling with Servilia's daughter Tertia.
Amongst his male lovers, the most well known was Nimomedes of Bithynia, who inspired the following ditty:
"Whatever Bithynia and her lord possesed
Her lord who Caesar in his lust caressed"
