Tue enough; if the whole point of the heroquest is sexual in nature, then Uleria's your goddess. I was thinking more of myths in which it's a means to an end - just as not all quests that involve combat are necessarily *about* combat. For instance, in my recent Valind-and-Shargash myth, Valind seduces a grain goddess to create the first winter barley. That's not a myth about the power of sex /per se/ but it's kind of relevant that he's male.
