It should be noted in Roman culture was much different about sexuality.
Taking it in the butt made you submissive and feminine and was looked down upon. Sticking it in a man's butt was not considered a big deal at all and would have never drawn a comment from other romans. That he was submissive to the advances of a man IS what 'history' says. Though again, it's just as likely simple slander.
He really shouldn't even be in the damn show, because he was a child at the time of the 3rd servile war.
Yeah, but they also made up Tiberius completely, so . . . Lol
Agreed re: roman sexuality
