The beautiful Goddess of Physical Lovin'

She was born of the sea foam produced after her father’s Uranus’s testicles were chucked into the ocean. With such an origin, it’s not surprising that she loves sex and surfers.

Aphrodite is famous for her beauty. She is utterly gorgeous and irresistible. When she started swanning around Olympus, Zeus was forced to marry her off to the crusty old Hephaestus to prevent all-out war among the horny gods.

They make an odd couple — the ‘beauty and the beast’ of Greek mythology. But if the rumors are true, she is not entirely immune to the advances of other gods. What’s a lonely young girl to do when hubby is out at work all day? She can’t help being a goddess who specializes in sensual love. Blame it on that sexy sea surf.

So if you’re surfing the net in search of love, remember Aphrodite, the goddess of erotic romance. Whoever wears her magic girdle immediately becomes an object of love. But where can it be found? We’ve no idea. Ebay? Craigslist?

Aphrodite was known as Venus to the Romans.
