John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester

"All this you freely may confess
Yet we'll not disagree
For did you love your pleasures less
You were not fit for me.

While I my passion to pursue
Am whole nights taking in
The lusty juice of grapes; take you
The juice of lusty men."

-exerpt from A Letter to a Lady, 1669 ce

For those who think today's morals are particularly licentious, I give you the Restoration which was considerably worse.
The exerpt above being one of the 'cleanest' of Rochester's poems, you can imagine the rest.
BTW John Wilmot is my second favorite poet.

Were I (who to my cost already am
One of those strange, prodigious creatures, man)
A spirit free to choose, for my own share,
What case of flesh and blood I pleased to wear,
I'd be a dog, a monkey or a bear,
Or anything but that vain animal
Who is so proud of being rational.

Women and men of wit are dangerous tools,
And ever fatal to admiring fools:
Pleasure allures, and when the fops escape,
'Tis not that they're belov'd, but fortunate,
And therefore, hat they fear at heart, they hate.

~exerpts from A Satyre against Reason and Mankind
