William_Blake,_The_Temptation_and_Fall_of_Eve-horz

Humans do the love and hate thing in world mythology; when it comes to snakes.Oh William Blake, you naughty boy; see the definition of intercourse and see that Eve did perform oral intercourse with a snake. Hinduism and Buddhism have the Nagas (middle image). In the African diaspora, Mama Wata wraps herself up with a snake lover. The Greeks have Lamia. China has Madam White Snake; Fuxi and Nüwa; and Gong Gong. Mesoamerican mythology has the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl. Snakes don’t do cold weather, but the Norse still have their World Serpent, Jörmungandr. You see, the world is filled with snake flakes.
