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?

My First Reviews - nice words from a new friend

I finally got my very first reviews on my writing!

Thank you, Neville Pettitt at the for these very nice words and lovely encouragement.

On the Prologue of Eye of the Beholder:
This write of yours is literally sublime & I dare anyone of my potential reviewing successors to contradict me... 

If my attention had not been grabbed from the very beginning and maintained throughout, I would not have bothered to have made any comment at all.. I sincerely advise you to advertise yourself a bit more...
On Artemis, still a virgin:
You have certainly got some literary skill/talent.. Call it what you will. I only very occasionally read anything other than poetry or very very special novels, although I must admit exceptions are sometimes made for recommended reading .. 

I have certainly enjoyed all of yours that I have so far read & must insist that you please keep writing... 
Between these words and my ever increasing reader hits on, I think I might just keeping plugging along and writing where and what Erato leads me.
