Sappho’s Charm School

lesbos

 

Dear Sappho,

I understand you operated a finishing school for women on Lesbos in the 5th century BCE. I am interested in what topics you covered and the finished product of your program. Many young women could use a mentor that could introduce them to achieving a charming life. What did you teach?

Dear Sappho,

Is sexual identity and orientation natural or essential to the person or is it socially constructed and subject to change? Are people born gay or is it a personal decision to become gay?

How did your society think and act about homosexuality and sexual orientation in ancient Greece? I think I might be naturally gay myself.

Gift Free and Guilt Free

  freeGift

Dear Sappho,

I am the only unmarried childless member of my large family and I am expected to give gifts to many nieces, nephews etc. who usually don’t even bother to call and thank me. I’m considering going gift free this year, what do you think? Should I feel guilty?

Happiness, Misery and the Law of Attraction

Dear Sappho,

I am losing my faith in love and romance. I have not been in a relationship for a long time and am losing all hope of ever being in one. I suppose I could go out and meet other women but I get sad when I see happy couples out and about enjoying themselves. It’s even worse at the holidays, I am hiding away more and more and fear becoming bitter. I doubt if you can help me, mostly I just want to vent.

Sappho's Curriculum

Dear Sappho,

I understand you had a school for girls that taught both the graces and the ways of love and wisdom. Some have compared your school to that of Socrates and his school for men. I am in education and I would like to know what the curriculum for these types of knowledge and some specifics about the outcomes expected. I am especially interested in hearing more about how your school devoted itself to the cult of Aphrodite and Eros. Any specific information about how you did this would be much appreciated.

A Good Kisser is Remembered Affectionately Forever

Dear Sappho,

Today is National Kissing Day and I think a few kissing tips are in order not just for lesbians, but for all woman and their lovers. I have had many overtures of affection during my life and although houses, cars, vacations and general success are important displays of mature affection and passion, I have yet to find anything more powerful or satisfying than a tender, provocative passionate kiss.

So Sappho, have you got any great kissing tips you would love to share with your girls?

Sappho is currently visiting her friend Erinna, a fellow poet on Greek Island of Tilos in the Aegean Sea archipelago. 

She hopes you will like the poems below written by Sappho and Erinna.  Erinna was a fellow poet, peer and friend of Sappho’s in 4th century BC Greece. Erinna was also considered to be a Lesbian and Mytilenean because of her close association with Sappho although she hailed from the neighboring island of Tilos or Telos.

Dear Sappho,

Why is Sappho called the Tenth Muse? What qualities, attributes or gifts has she bestowed on humanity that would make her worthy of such a title?
