Sexual Positions Named for Mythology

So, while searching through my "Blogs I Follow", I saw a post about The Amazon sexual position and I wondered, how many positions are there named for mythology? Well, here's what I found...

The Amazon - a missionary position basically flipped to put the woman on top, thrusting the man's penis into her womb, ala the way the Amazons of Greek mythology took the place of men in their society and only used men for sexual purposes.

The Amazon has a few variations, too: Amazon Kneeling, Amazon - Reverse, Amazon Kneeling - Reverse

The Big and Little Dippers - not actually named for the constellations, which were originally called Big and Little Bear after Callisto and her son, but close enough.

Okay, if you believe the Bible is full of truths instead of fictionalized half-truths, don't read this!
Eve's Ecstasy - for her pleasure only... and, yes, I consider Adam and Eve mythological. And, the related, by mythology and receiver, act: Forbidden Fruit.

Moving on to other edibles, we have the Lotus, as in, the Lotus-Eaters, Odysseus' unhappy happy-place's inhabitants. This position, as well, has a kneeling variation to add more interesting dynamics to an already rather dynamic position.

I get the distinct feeling that the Spread Eagle, whether in this form, or the more widely thought of scenario of fully spread arms and legs (maybe tied apart) was due to Zeus and his insistence on taking the form of an eagle, or any animal, to seduce unwilling mortals. Literally, making them "open" up to him, forcing it if need be.

And, that's all I got... seems I might be able to create a few more with a little inspiration. Perhaps I can convince my husband a little experimentation is good for the relationship?
