Hindu Mythology

The colorful deities and demons of India...

RATI

Hindu Desire Goddess

Enthusiastic Goddess of Sex

Of course she is, being the girlfriend of Lust God Kama.

To put it in common vernacular, ‘She’s a bit of a goer’. She’ll try sex with anything that takes her fancy, and she fancies just about everything — Gods, mortals, beasts, trees and plants.

She is highly skilled in the arts of love and has invented many sexual techniques. By now she is probably offering technical advice to a multitude of adult websites.

However, please be assured that all this naughtiness is strictly for devout spiritual purposes. It is all about the Karma of Kama.
