Many people know basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain as the king of the harem, bedding an alleged 20,000 women in his lifetime. But if Castro's claims are at all realistic, he managed to plow his way through (pun intended) 35,000 before he kicked the bucket at the age of 90.
In a different time, John F. Kennedy and Castro could have been great friends, bonding over their need for women to be immediately available at all hours. JFK was known to say that he got blinding headaches if he didn't have enough sex, while Castro had "at least two women a day for more than four decades -- one for lunch and one for supper." But variety is the spice of life, so he also sometimes "ordered one for breakfast." This is all according to one of his aides, who must have been surprised when one of his main jobs was to search the beaches of Havana for the hottest chicks to bring back for El Commandante.

Damn it, were the cigars a penis thing, too?
But the real key to identifying seriously sex-addicted guys is always how many kids they have, because, let's face it, birth control fails (and no birth control really fails). In Castro's case the answer seems to be between "at least 10" and "we have no fucking idea." What we do know is that he had three children born to three different mothers in one year alone. No matter how many women he was with, in Communist Cuba everyone was supposed to keep his sluttiness on the DL. Everyone, that is, but Castro himself. He apparently liked to litter his speeches with sexual jokes and innuendos, because everyone knows the ladies love that kind of thing.
