’The Raving Ones’. Often labeled as NYMPHS, they are the debauched female followers of DIONYSUS, who drives them wild with passion.
Notoriously crazy, the MAENADS have been known to rip unwary travelers to shreds in the throes of their sexual ecstasy — especially after chewing on the old laurel leaves for a while.
They have no inhibitions and can now be found at pop concerts throwing their underwear at the stage. Hence the expression ‘sex and drugs and rock-n-roll’.
