Greek Mythology ~ Andrej Pejić as Hermaphroditus ~ requested by anon
…a son of Hermes and Aphrodite; the god of hermaphrodites and of effeminate men. He was numbered amongst the winged love-gods known as Erotes.
Some say he was once a handsome youth who attracted the love of a Naiad nymph named Salmakis. She prayed to be united with him forever and a god, in answer to her prayer, merged their two forms into one. At the same time her spring acquired the property of making men who bathed in its waters soft and effeminate. (x)
