Venus (Aphrodite) in Venus and Adonis

What do you get when the goddess of love gets with the hottest guy in the world? Trouble. Venus (Aphrodite) was the goddess of love, beauty, and procreation. As you might expect from a goddess of these things, she had a wild and crazy love life.

It seems like she just never got over that beautiful boy.
