Sexy Goddess of Flowers

Because flowers are the sex organs of plants, she was worshiped by the Romans in their usual naughty way. Any excuse for an orgy.

So be careful when you give someone a bunch of flowers — you could be sending quite the wrong message. Or indeed the right one.

Her partner is the God of Spring Winds Favonius. They met in a field while she was collecting spring flowers and he was unable to resist her bunches.
