The Eater of Filth and Dirt

Do you really want further details? Well, okay, if you insist.

TLAZOLTEOTL is the Goddess of Confession, Purification and Rescue from Spiritual Uncleanliness. Especially in the sexual line. If you have a filthy mind or you want to dig the dirt, just turn to her.

She’s ready to hear all your confessions and will delight in gobbling up your filthy thoughts. When she sucks up your sin this will hopefully leave you feeling pure and clean. But be careful — you could run the risk of being flayed alive.

Ironically she’s often seen as a statuette in craft shops, sold as a Love Goddess giving birth.
