Key words: Plutarch, Plutarch’s Eroticus, misogyny, gender studies, Greek philosophy, feminism, ethics and sexuality, masculine ethics

The aim of this article is to show, by means of an accurate philological analysis of Plautarch's Eroticus, how Western Ethics has been clearly sexualized. Indeed, the specific features of masculine bodies become the suitable ones to define what is really ethical, while the specific features of feminine bodies become in their turn the suitable ones to define what is by no means ethical.
