It's not enough that Medusa was raped by Poseidon and then cursed and deformed by Athena. Perseus murdered her and Athena eventually had her head mounted on her shield; the head of the rape victim whom she should have defended!

I always thought the medusa had a great deal of erotic potential; say if the 'snakes' weren't toothed and were large enough... and the stoning thing is bypassed, after all, it was supposed to be that she was so ugly that you were turned to stone; what if that was just what the medusa had been told by a nasty goddess out of spite?

I still find your description to it funny :D

And I love how they placed the spotlights, not only on her face but the light and shadow play on them is great. Such great work they did of forming them *___*

that's weird, in my core class im reading the lightning theif(*SPOILERZ WARNING*if you dont know what the hell that is, its a book about a twelve year old boy who is actually the son of Poseidon and he goes on a quest to return Zeus' lightning bolt, which was stolen)
in my opinion, the book is very good and i suggest reading it :D

I think Medusa is enjoying some rough play before Perseus satisfies her masochistic tendencies.
