The Origins and Role of Same-Sex Relations in Human Societies by James Neill

Arnaud had sex with his partners in a variety of locations and in a variety of ways. On one occasion he screwed his partner unceremoniously on a dung heap. Other times he would take his partner to a cabin out in the countryside among the vineyards. According to the trial record Arnaud would have sex with his partners anally, from the front, from the rear and in other ways. On some occasions before engaging in the sex act, the partners would dress in tunics and wrestle and dance, and sometimes they undressed each other and lay together naked. The testimony in Arnaud’s trial led to the discovery of an extensive social network of males who had sex with each other, which Goodich called “a veritable lavender underground.”
