New York, June 1 (ANI): Renowned social scientist Friedrich Engels has been dubbed a 'sexual predator' in a new biography.

"Marx's General" by Tristram Hunt reveals that Engels loved hookers and hated homosexuals.

Hunt said that Engels, who penned "The Communist Manifesto" with Karl Marx, was a champagne-drinking womaniser who "frequented boudoirs and brothels" and likened gays and lesbians to "pederasts".

According to the New York Post, he added that Engels, "a well-versed lothario" who succumbed to "bacchanalian urges", was also once accused of raping a friend's wife. (ANI)
