Tlazōlteōtl

Tlazōlteōtl

This Mesoamerican Goddess was the deity of vice, filth, purification, steam baths, lust, fertility, adulterers and — you guessed it — sex workers.

Tlazōlteōtl symbolically castrated priests in elaborate rituals, and pardoned her followers’ sin in a never ending circle of life, sex, and death.
