A real Don Juan type
There were a number of ladies — one of his nieces included — that didn’t much mind the little mustache. These women all shared one other passion, aside from his mo: suicide, or at the very least a romancing of death. His first girlfriend committed suicide; his last attempted it twice before finally fulfilling the dream in 1945 with her lover in her arms. In between, the stories are no different. The man really had an effect on women! A real Don Juan type.
He liked being kicked
What these women got from him sexually is another question. Perhaps it would be better to say “what he got from them.” Psychological assessments of Hitler, undertaken in his lifetime, concluded that he probably adored being urinated and defecated on. In fact, any sexual report regarding the man, be it psychological or a recount, suggests that he was rather strange in the sack. For example, he supposedly begged to be kicked repeatedly by one woman and is said to have had his guards videotape the torture of Jewish people for his own home-viewing pleasure.
Afraid of blades
If it is true that he liked to be dominated, then this next Hitler quirk is a very curious counterpart: he was afraid of blades in other people’s hands to the point of feeling terrified during haircuts. This must stem from paranoia that many people wanted to take his life (which they did). For the same reason, he always shaved himself, just in case. It’s really another exhibition of his weakness — apparent by simply looking at his frame — but it really is wonderful to imagine Hitler screaming on the barber’s chair as if he were at the dentist.
Hitler was a vegetarian
If you’ve invited Hitler for dinner it might be good to ask whether he has any special dietary requirements. He does; Hitler was a vegetarian. It would then be an opportune time to ask yourself what you’re doing inviting a genocidal lunatic into your house, onto your table, to eat off of your forks.
Chances are, he’s not interested in joining you for the Hare Krishna hiking weekend, but he did see (after Richard Wagner) vegetarianism as bridging a spiritual divide. Supposedly, he saw the future of Germany as vegetarian — a long way from the knockwurst we know and love.
Hitler invented the concept of blow-up dolls
Don’t hold your breath. You’re not going to guess this one. In order to avoid the situation of his soldiers, who have the same needs as anybody else, sleeping with one another (in which case they would have to be executed) or sleeping with the locals of regions they visited (and potentially procreating with Jews and being executed for that), Hitler came up with yet another brilliant idea: the blow-up doll. You know that breath you’re not holding? It suddenly has somewhere else to be. Complete the job without the complete set! Don’t screw the system, screw this plastic thing instead! However the proposal was constructed, I’m sure it would have been — if recorded — one of the funniest moments in history.
