Naughty Nordic Gods by humon Naughty Nordic Gods by humon
Inspired by some of you guys' comments. ;)

From left to right: Trickster god Loki, King of gods Odin, and Goddess of love Freyja.

They all have more godly jobs, such as Odin being god of war, knowledge, death, and sex. Freyja is also goddess of war, wild nature, spring, and romantic sex. Loki is mainly just a trickster, but also god of ergi, the viking word for any unmanly act by a man, such as crossdressing or being the passive part of gay sex (being the active part was however seen as very manly).

These three were the, to put it mildly, whores of the Nordic gods. Dear god did they sleep around. Odin and Freyja might even have been lovers, but don't feel bad for Odin's wife, Frigg. She had her own lover who even lived in Odin's house when he was on his long journeys.
And depending on who you ask, Odin and Loki might have been lovers in the past as well, so Odin wins the battle of who is the biggest horndog.
Might also be part of the reason why Freyja and Loki hate each other so much. Cat fight, cat fight, cat fight!!

Some of you might wonder what's up with Loki's mouth. In one story he gets his mouth sown shut to make him shut up, so in old pictures of him he can be recognized by the strings across his lips.
Also, I put him in this rather feminine pose because he did a lot of his whoring as a woman. He was apparently quite fond of being pregnant because he went to earth many many times to sleep with human men and birth their children (Odin did the same, but not as often). And yes, he also got pregnant as a horse. You people love that story. :XD:

And some of you might think, "Odin looks like Gandalf from Lord of the Rings!" and that's because Tolkien took Gandalf's looks from Odin. Gandalf is such an Odin wannabe! ;)

Personally, I think Frigga and Freyja might be just different aspects of the same goddess.
Hey, do you know about Sigyn? It just occurred to me that I've seen a fair number of your pics and she hasn't been mentioned so far...

YES, WE DO LOVE THAT STORY! I don't know why, since it's so perverse, but I love Loki getting impregnated as a mare, that's just hilarious to me!

Can you give the link where I can read about Loki as crossdresser? I know that he can change his gender for tricks but I'm shocked of his gay part.

Now I'm curious:

Since Loki gave birth to Sleipnir as a horse, did he ever tell Odin where he got it from? XD
vipertongue Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012
Yes in a sense he did. He gave Sleipnir to Odin as a gift. lol If my memory serves me correctly anyway.

If it helps any, there's no real reason to believe that Loki was the patron god of ergi (or of anything for that matter). Odin accused him of it, Loki accused Odin right back, and I believe that was about it. Neopagans have attached new meanings in the process of reviving the mythology. However, the horse incident is accurate. I cracked up when Sleipnir showed up in the movie "Thor." I betcha that's one myth that Marvel won't touch with a ten foot pole. Ha.
DCMSSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
Sleipnir appears as Odin's horse in pagan sources, but the tale of Loki birthing the horse came from the same Christian sources that had Odin and Loki accusing each other of womanly behavior, Loki living as a human woman so that he could birth babies, the other gods engaging in incest, and so on. None of that nonsense is supported by pagan sources, but it rather all comes from Christian sources written at least two centuries after Norse paganism had been wiped out by Christianity.
Fools-Errand Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012
...Actually in the comics...they sorta did. [link](Earth-616)
And then there's this lovely quote from the Sandman comics(he sounds so proud, lol), "I am the mother of Odin's stallion, Sleipnir. I am the father of Fenrir Sun-Eater, and of Hel Half-Rotted and of Jormungund the World-Serpent. I am Loki Scar-Lip, Loki Skywalker, Loki Giant's Child, Loki Lie-Smith. I am Loki, who is fire and wit and hate. I am Loki. And I will be under an obligation to no one." — Loki
But I do think you're correct in that they will likely avoid touching upon the myth in the movieverse, as it'd probably scare off the moviegoers.

wow that was, thank you for stating that line! i could literally feel the epic atmosphere of it ^^
zStars Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
Of course Neil Gaiman would. Haha. But yes, I know he appears in the comics as well as the movie, I just meant that I doubt Marvel will address his *origin.*

Not only Gandalfs style is taken from the nordic myths. His namen is taken directly from the Edda. It is a name of a dwarf. ;)
juliankanes Featured By Owner May 1, 2012
I know this has nothing to do with the Norse gods in the picture
but this for some strange reason this reminds me of the samurais and bushido where the samurai would be tender and very loving towards themselves and their master. Sorry rambling I know but again I don't know why of all things that reminds of that.

gandalf=>odin=>zues(or how ever you spell that greek bastards name)
nobodies original anymore they couldn't even make up there own mythology
DCMSSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
Odin was held to be equivalent to Mercury, not Zeus. The Greeks and the Romans both wrote of foreign gods in terms of their own gods, but they did not actually recognize the Norse pantheon as being the same as their own.
grim-puppet-demon Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
meh religion and mythology both were adopted by conquering contrys to make it easier for the pagans and what not to follow them. something about divine right and power or idk. infact alot of catholic holidays were adapted from pagan holidays like the season solstices
idk im spewing shi+.p
DCMSSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013
Christianity has long had a habit of incorporating pagan beliefs to ease conversion, but that really follows what the Hebrews originally engaged in when they suddenly became monotheistic. The cult that came to power needed to ease conversion of others while also covering up their polytheistic past. This is why the Old Testament has so many names for Yahweh. Jews and Christians would have you believe that all of the names are just "titles" for Yahweh, but that makes absolutely no sense. For example, El Elyon (God Most High) pointed to the supreme deity of the Canaanite pantheon, and the Canaanites and Hebrews were related. Elohim (Sons of El) was used to refer to the various deities that were given authority over different regions and/or peoples, but Judeo-Christians would have you believe that the plural word is just magically singular and serves as a title for Yahweh.

The reality is that the ancient Hebrews had a shared overarching pantheon with other peoples in the region, and El was the supreme deity and father of the various tribal deities. Yahweh was nothing more than the tribal deity of the Hebrews, and he was essentially a god of war based on his behavior in the Old Testament. The Yahwist cult was dominant in Judah, but the Elist cult was dominant in Israel. Along with El, they recognized his wife, Asherah, while some tried to claim Asherah was Yahweh's wife as a way of linking him to El the Most High. In time, however, the Yahwist cult came to dominate the united kingdoms, and the clerics started to combine the old, polytheistic stories into a monotheistic religion. They did not try to rewrite everything, however, and simply claimed that El Elyon, Elohim, and all of the other terms people were accustomed to were titles of Yahweh. In essence, the Elists did not have to change their ways much, but they rather only had to accept that they were already worshipping Yahweh under other names. Asherah was condemned in a rather large and sexist coverup.

Christians merely carried on this tradition even if they did not recognize the history of Hebraic religion. It comes down to propagandizing non-believers so they will happily accept being defeated. The Yahwists did it to the Elists, and then the Christians did it to the pagans to spread across the globe. The tactics were slightly different in that the Yahwists sought to usurp and put their god in El's skin while the Christians sought to belittle the old gods while usurping holidays, but the end result was the same.

In either case, it makes no sense to let the modern Yahwists define the ancient ways because they only care for their religion as it stands now rather than what their ancestors believed just as it makes no sense to let Christians define pagan ways, which they sought to destroy, not preserve.

yay you've done your research!
Falskhet Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
Yes, because the Nords had contact with the Greeks before their own mythology was wait.

Nordic gods are interesting. They're more holy than the Greek and Roman pantheon, but significantly more human than the monotheistic God of the Abrahamic religions. By which I mean, this trio's whoring is nothing compared to Zeus/Jupiter alone. About the only one who didn't go whoring was Hephaestus/Vulcan and that was mostly because he was lame. Pluto was pretty cool, too. Ruler of the underworld and into monogamy.

Thanks for scarring my religion.
DCMSSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
I agree with you completely. It saddens me how many people are on here accepting Christian accusations as actual Norse beliefs. All of this degenerate nonsense comes from 13th and 14th century Christians, but there is an endless stream of people coming away thinking this is an accurate representation of the religion even though none of it is supported by original pagan sources.
zStars Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
I'm not religious myself, but I am slightly irritated by all the neopagan stuff bleeding into Norse myth...Loki is not the "patron god" of ergi. That's just...argh. I don't know. I guess people add their own interpretations and details to the mythology in the process of attempting to revive it.

Anyway, you worship the Norse pantheon? That's actually really cool.
