The first bathtub installed in the United States was installed in Cincinnati, Ohio, home in 1842. It was made of mahogany and was lined with sheet metal.

The romans were very clean...for the time period they lived in

And it was mainly the upper classes anyway who had them in the houses.

Mind you they had central heating which is a damn site better than the stuff in use today.

AND for another bit of randomness

The girls did like to annoint themselves with the sweat of particulally potent gladiators!!!!

You take on the strength and power of the fighter.

[SAYS SLOWLY...in MAN TALKING TO WOMAN VOICE]

Er it was an aph_ro_dis_iac

Are we getting it now?

[Waves Hands About]

AN APHRODISIAC

[STOPS and THINKS]
...uh oh man very sorry...much stupid...woman know things...man now in shit AGAIN ;-)
[Starts Again]

Lets just say the power and strength we are talking about might JUST be aimed at something else other than lifting CARTS...somewhere where stamina is required ;-). Of course

No. That's a stereotype. Women were very interested in the power that they could get from men through sex o other means. Power was everything in Rome, regardless of gender. Men had more of it, but that doesn't mean that women craved it and fought for it.

Apparently it was scraped off in the steam houses and sold to blenders who valued specific individual fighters over others.

They fixed the "fresh" sweat into fat OR olive oil to be used as a face cream...

Now it has some basis in fact...though only some. They would be wearing the pheromones of a powerful male...so it might not act that well

They wouldn't stink though as the sweat is FRESH(shudder) and not stinky. The stinky comes from extra body bacteria.
