(Greek Deity) SALMACIS

Goddess of : The Well of Homosexuality
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Deity of the Well of Homosexuality. I kid you not.

Salmacis fell head over heels, not into her well, but in love with a certain Hermaphroditus, son of Hermes and Aphrodite.

Though the feeling wasn't mutual it didn't stop her from begging the Gods to merge them into a single being so she they could be together for all eternity. Hermaphroditus didn't have a say in the matter and they became the worlds first hermaphrodite - a human with male and female 'bits'.

Now anyone who drinks from the aptly named Salmacis Well is inflicted with an inexplicable urge to jump into bed with any old member of the same sex, though no-one seems to know if it works the other way. What if a homosexual drinks from the well?
