Actually, you are. Especially when you point out the sexual activities and then say that the fall of those civilizations fell soon after.

but it is interesting looking at the timeframe of when sexuality reached its peak, and how soon the civilization fell.
Except the data doesn't even support a correlative conclusion. Rome fell 300 years after it reached its sexual peak. The sexual peak =/= the fall of the civilization.

with rome, there are several factors. politics, spreading an army too thin, uprisings. you mentioned several reasons for sparta. with egypt and japan (edo period more specifically), i too, doubt sexuality was the source of the downfall, it's just interesting to look at those timeframes, that is all.
@Bolded: then why the hell did you make a post specifically citing sexual "deviance" and try to make the conclusion that said deviance was intertwined with the civilizations' downfalls? When Num clearly pointed out that they weren't and a little bit of research would've led you to the same conclusion as him.
