Sexy Hindu Snake Goddess

She leads a sleazy fertility cult of snake worship. It must be love at first bite.

During her festival, basketfuls of the wriggling love creatures are tamed by smoochy flute music, rising from their basket and swaying hypnotically to the tune. Then they do magical feats while their devotees slip into a sexy trance.

It’s all to do with that mystic snake energy which coils around the universe. She’s possibly the Goddess of Copper Wire too.
