Greek Spirit

Nymph who lets Pan play with her organ

One of the NYMPHS, she was pursued by PAN who wouldn’t take no for an answer. Arriving at a river, she turned herself into reeds hoping to blend in and escape his attentions.

With a gleeful laugh PAN plucked the reeds and began to kiss and fondle them. SYRINX’s cries of protest soon turned to squeals of laughter. Soon she was singing and he had invented a new musical instrument — his famous pan pipes.

You will notice we have carefully refrained from using the expression ‘blow job’.
