    Alternatively, he was ahead of his time and realised that age meant little.

    The story gets even better. Years later, the same thing happens again, with Abimilech and Sarah. Only this time, Sarah is 90 and pregnant.

    But, it gets even better. Eight chapters later, it happens again - same story, same plan by Abraham: ?And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, ?She is my sister.? And Abim'elech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.? - Genesis 20:2

    Now, this is getting a little ridiculous. By this time, Sarah is 90 years old. Not only is she old, but no one has any illusions about her allure. These words were spoken prior to the fling with Abimelech:

    ?Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, ?After I have grown old, and my husband is old, shall I have pleasure??" - Genesis 18:11,12

    Apparently, she still had a fair bit of pleasure coming.

    But, let?s bring this back to reality. The Pharaoh story, with Sarah at 65 years of age, was a little hard to swallow, but this is ridiculous.

    On the other hand, maybe these early kings, with harems full of beautiful young girls, both had a kinky thing for old women. Could this be where we get the modern expression ?Abimilech-bait??

    That was a section from my book.

    I'm getting confused, now. Is that reverse "jailbait"?

    Gumby the Egyptians had a thing for Mummies not Daddies.

    Abraham for being fierce at times... willing to cut his sons throat, took on maruading bands to save his no good nephew Lot was sure willing to give up poor old Sarah without a fight...more than once.

    Age is I think one element in being attracted to someone. Pharaoh may have discerned other qualities in Sarai that he thought were hot. Even though I think most youngers guys won't admit it, there are women who "are of a certain" age who are very attractive. Even Judi Dench, Catherine Deneuve and Sophia Loren are still good looking for their age...

    they still go at it 2 times a week...Damn tell me what she's taken and pass it on.

    Hmmm...maybe the Pharaoh that had the hots for Sarai was Pepy II:

    Pepi II. According to tradition, lived to the age of 100 years and ruled for 96 of them. His elder brother, the pharaoh Merenra, reigned for only a few years and when he suddenly died, Pepi became king while still a child.
