Eros Day is coming...
Oh, youve never celebrated Eros Day? Youve never even heard of Eros Day? Well, its time you did, as it's the holiday that celebrates love and human sexuality in the fullest, most unabashed, most frankly erotic sense.
But first, what or who is Eros? Well, its from the same root as "erotic," so it must have something to do with sex. But Eros is more, so much more...
According to the Theogeny, the Genealogy of the Gods, written in 800 BCE by Hesiod of Boeoita, Eros was one of the four great original Creators of the Universe, all of whom emerged from Chaos. The other three were Gaia, Goddess of the Earth, Uranus, God of the Sky; and Tartarus, God of the Underworld. The fourth Great Creator was Eros, God of Life, Love and Sex. Eros blew the Breath of Life into all creatures, even the Gods. This was what I call The Original Blow-Job.
In later Greek mythology, the Great Creator Eros morphed into a classical teenage punk, a handsome, sexy, naughty, young heartthrob with glorious wings and a potent quiver of arrows to pierce the hearts of paramours with desire.
His closest relationship was with his supremely beautiful mother Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans), Goddess of Love, Sex and Beauty.
Eros took on other roles in the Great Greco-Roman Soap Opera of the Gods. He was also the husband of Psyche, Goddess of the Soul. Youve heard of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown? Well, now you know Psyche, the Goddess of Soul, and Soulmate of Eros.
Eros father is uncertain, in keeping with his swinging character. It could have been Zeus, Ares or Hermes or any one of his sexy Mama Aphrodites many lovers. Eros became Amor in Rome, and later, Cupid. Nowadays, Cupid is usually portrayed as a cuddly little angel, or a troop of cuddly little angels who fly around shooting their arrows of desire into the hearts of humans everywhere to make them fall in love.
