There is a huge blurring of the lines of sex, violence, and lust--for power in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. And, there's something more than vaguely homoerotic about what the gladiators do--at least before they chop off the other guy's head. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
As hetero a female as I am, I find the women of Spartacus to be far nicer to gaze upon than the men. Perhaps because the women appear to bathe?

The House of Batiatus has towered above the city of Capua for many years. "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" will explore its deadly history before the arrival of Spartacus, and the death he carried with him. It's a time of transition as Quintus Lentulus Batiatus takes the reins of his father's stable of gladiators, with ambitions to elevate the house beyond all former glories. With his beautiful, scheming wife Lucretia at his side, he will stop at nothing to see his name forever carved into history. Batiatus stakes his fortunes on the roguish gladiator Gannicus, a man whose skill with a sword is surpassed only by his appetite to live every day as if it were his last. But there are those who would see Batiatus and his champion destroyed. Loyalties will be tested, lives shattered, and battles waged in this thrilling prequel to "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."
