Louis was to devote much of his energy to his new project, but he was always sure to make time for his other great passion. Although married to Queen Marie-Therese, he had numerous affairs. His current mistress was a young aristocratic beauty, called Louise De La Valliere. Louis' attitude towards women was one of tremendous enthusiasm. He really loved women. He didn't just love them for sex, he loved their company, he loved their conversation, he loved their elegance, he loved women who were witty and refined. Most of all, I think he loved women because they teased him, they made him laugh. He had a tremendous sexual appetite.
