French aristocrat and all-around libertine pervert, the Marquis de Sade (1740-1814), is the godfather of sadomasochism. Beyond his BDSM proclivities and love of sodomy, the Marquis De Sade engaged in the sort of strange, fetishistic, and degenerate sexual techniques that would only make it into our most hardcore pornography. Once considered insane and put in mental institutions for 30 years, the Marquis de Sade has now become a sexual hero. One of his most infamous stories (and something he was arrested for) was the story of the him masturbating into a chalice in front of a prostitute while antagonizing God. The sperm was supposed to be like the semen of Christ. He also put communion wafers in the prostitute's genitalia, and is known for masturbating crucifixes.
