    I don't think the Fremen had group sex, they probably all shared the Water then paired off, like Paul and Chani did in Dune.

    I got the impression from GEoD that Leto never had sex.
    Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

    From looking at that parts of Dune where this first comes up when Jessica drinks the Water of Life (thus changing it so the Fremen can drink it) she shares her awareness with Fremen RM Ramallo during which Ramallo transfers her memories to Jessica, so it appears the "orgy" for the Fremen is this joining of oneness, of heightened mutual awareness (inspired by LSD I believe) similar to what Jessica experiences with RM Ramallo so I don't think its an orgy in the sexual sense as the whole tribe getting down and dirty.
    The name Atreides was also consciously chosen. It is the family name of Agamemnon. Says Herbert, "I wanted a sense of monumental aristocracy, but with tragedy hanging over them--and in our culture, Agamemnon personifies that."

    Ghanima said. "We Atreides go back to Agamemnon..."
    Distracted, Irulan asked: "Who's Agamemnon?"
