The value of a divine cock

Sannion from the House of Vines has produced a detailled, well written and educative post on physical pleasures and god-cocks which I highly recommend. It’s from a Graeco-Egyptian perspective, but much of what it says can easily be considered for cults from other parts, such as Frey’s or even His sister’s. Here’s a small sample:

Since Christians have been harping on this point pretty much from the beginning, Pagans have had a long time to come up with a proper response. Unfortunately that response is usually along the lines of the one championed by the likes of Julian, Sallustius and the Stoics before them – namely the allegorical method. (…) But Amenábar has his Pagan intellectual offer a different sort of answer:

“If my gods eat and drink and fornicate – good for them!”
