The National Library plans to make all the documents available online, and the Gallimard publishing house will begin publishing a multi-volume series of the memoirs in Despite his many adventures, Casanova was best known as a libertine. His first sexual encounter, he wrote, was at 11, when he was groped by the sister of his guardian. During his lifetime he claimed to have seduced women, including a nun.

Mitterrand had his own brush with notoriety after he published a memoir that included explicit descriptions of his sexual activities with young male prostitutes in Morocco and Thailand. He later said they had not been under age. Racine said. He was always tender, never cruel. A feminist. Along the way he drops the names of his acquaintances, like Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Of course, behavior that was tolerated in the 18th century would be condemned today.
