Ayn Rand made her mark in history as a philosopher and novelist, promoting her ideas of Objectivism everywhere from college campuses to the inner workings of her vibrant, influential social circles. The private life of Ayn Rand shows the writer and screenplay producer indulged herself romantically and sexually in ego-feeding and toxic ways. Merely living and loving for herself alone, she kept her flings secret - making it easy for her to sweep her toxicity under the rug.
Rumors about Ayn Rand's sex life circulate more than just stories of her seduction and public freak-outs. Under her moral values of "reasonability," she completely rejected any notions of altruism and excused her outrageous behavior. Crazy stories about Ayn Rand's relationships expose that she had no problems verbally and physically abusing her partners, blatantly harming others via her adulterous relationships, and publicly condemning promiscuity and homosexuality - just as she promoted in her fictional and philosophical works.
