SWAN-MAIDENS

Irresistibly lovely swan ladies

Related to the VALKYRIES, these lovely ladies cannot resist fluttering down and taking off their feathered dresses to go skinny-dipping in limpid pools.

They are incredibly beautiful and desirable, but will fly away if disturbed. What a man must do is to sneakily steal the swan dress, and this naked woman will follow him home, marry him, be faithful, cook and be a mother to this children.

But be warned. It's the old, old story. One day she is going to find that old feathery dress in the attic and won't be able to resist trying it on. When she does, you've lost her. She will fly the nest. Sorry but that's life.
