Since I'm part-historian I'd have to say that, regardless of the actual person depicted here, it's pretty hard to imagine that everyone up until the 20th century kept to the whole 'no sex before marriage' thing. I mean, it's probably safe to say that most marriages were hurried along for that very reason. (if you get my hint)
Also I've seen 1776 too many times to doubt that Jefferson was anything but a lover ahead of his time.
LOL. what makes me laugh is I know this would have never crossed Thomas mind, since it was hundreds of years before any of this was made. He had no idea that one day a lot of people would be drawing about his life. haa.
Just thinking about that blows my freaking mind, but also makes me laugh. Sexy drawing by the way. whoo!
