When we journey to our ancient past, long before a Christian god and patriarchal religions, we encounter a world where for millennia people worshiped the Goddess – benevolent, fertile and above all sexual. Very sexual! Today we have profound difficulty associating sexuality with anything sacred, but in ancient times the worship of the goddess was often conducted through sexual rites. As the goddess once again awakens in a western consciousness, the shame and guilt traditionally attached to our bodies and sexual experiences is being replaced with a remembering of lifetimes past when deity was female and sex was for worship.



It has been 5,000 years or more since the goddess was at the height of her power, but with her return, we are remembering how to experience the divine through the sacrament of sex. The goddess offers us a new religion (actually an ancient one) where sex leads to enlightenment and the current shame and perversion we carry around sexuality is being transformed. What if I told you that the sacred actually lives in your body and that engaging in conscious acts of sex can lead to transcendent experiences of bliss and self realization? The goddess is back, and sex is sacred.

Sacred sex in the 21st century is suddenly big business and the goddess looms large as we revisit the past to uncover the roots of traditions that honored her. You will find her in the explosion of Neo Tantra that offers a stylized western experience for those who want to heal their relationships and experience a FULL BODY ORGASM. You will find her in a Wiccan or Shamanic ritual, or a Pagan magic sex rite. She is the healing found through a sex surrogate, or in the arms of a modern day sacred prostitute. She is the rising kundalini serpent awakened in an ecstatic dance class. Whichever path you may wish to traverse, the untamable, powerful sexual energy of the goddess is awakening and this site is a portal for her to enter into your life. Journey with me, her priestess, as you awaken ancient memories and bring her energy into the present day to transform your life and everything you touch.



The term “Hieros Gamos” comes from the Greek whose etymology translates as “hieros” – holy and “gamos” – marriage or coupling. In ancient Mesopotamia, the lands known as Sumeria, Assyria and Babylon, from the 4th millennium BCE, the people worshiped the great Goddess Innana, Queen of the Heavens and the Earth. Here, the High Priestess of Inanna would unite with or marry the King of the land who represented the young, virile vegetation God, in a public sexual ceremony that not only celebrated the fertile renewal of the land but was also a ritual act of creation. This important festival would last for many days and occur around the time of the autumn equinox. The celebrations would include the ritual sacrifice of grains and fruits, including the first offspring of livestock. So important was this celebration of renewal that only the most precious objects would be sacrificed.


Within the ritual sacred marriage, the High Priestess of the temple became the earthly embodiment of the Goddess herself, joining with the masculine in the form of the King. This represented the joining of the elements of earth and spirit to create a holy sacred union. Here, sexuality was experienced as a pathway to the divine.

Here is the next music video to have playing while you continue reading more about the divine Sex Goddess INANNA/ISHTAR ...you don't want to miss this one ...I PROMISE!


While our first Sex Goddess, Aphrodite, hails from the first millennium BCE, worship of the venerated Goddess Inanna, peaks from circa 4,000 BCE where we find totally different attitudes towards sexuality and its potency used in a ritual context. Inanna was the Sumerian Goddess of the moon, known as Queen of Heaven and Goddess of gentle rains and terrible floods, Goddess of the morning and evening star, Queen of the land and its fertility, bestowing kingship on chosen mortals. She was the Goddess of war and equally passionately, the Goddess of sexual love.

Her reign encompassed lands known as Sumeria, Assyria and Babylon and in later times she was known as Ishtar to the Babylonians and was one of the three great goddesses of the Bronze Age. Sumer was the first great urban center to emerge and with it, the cuneiform or wedge shaped system of writing on clay tablets which was Sumer’s greatest gift to modern civilization.

INANNA (AKA: ISHTAR) - QUEEN OF HEAVEN - The Heavenly History you never knew existed! - Chapter 2

The archaeological evidence of some 10,000 unearthed clay tablets brings to life the public rites and rituals that dominated Sumerian religious practices. Central to this matriarchal religious cult was the highly venerated Goddess Inanna. Far more extroverted than Aphrodite, Inanna celebrated her vulva and the sex act and below is one of the most quoted hymns of the bridal songs, where Inanna calls out to her lover the shepherd King Dumuzi:


My vulva, the horn,
The Boat of Heaven,
Is full of eagerness like the young moon.
My untilled land lies fallow.

As for me, Inanna,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will plow my high field?
Who will plow my wet ground?

As for me, the young woman,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will station the ox there?
Who will plow my vulva?


Here is the final music video to have playing while you continue reading more about the divine Sex Goddess INANNA/ISHTAR...

This hymn explains the openness of sexuality expressed in the writings of the Goddess and paints a picture of how liberally sexuality was viewed. Inanna’s vulva is often called the “holy lap” and is used as an adjective that is applied to numerous other deities, temples, places and artifacts and is usually translated as “pure” or “holy”. Inanna was said to have used her vulva and the power associated with it, to further the prestige and divine status of her city. This accounts for the myriad figurines and terracotta models of female nudes and vulva-shaped ceremonial offerings that have been found all over the ancient near East representing the holy power of sexuality.

Sacred Woman or a Prostitute?

But it was the highly trained priestesses who became the vessel for the Goddess in the holy sexual rituals performed in her name. The Sumerian and Babylonian temple records indicate that the Qadishtu who served in the temples of Inanna/Ishtar were often from wealthy families. They owned property and land and engaged in extensive business activities. Although the title of Qadishtu translates literally as “sacred woman” or “the undefiled”, academic translations have nearly always used the term “prostitute” to describe these women and the term “temple prostitution” to depict the sacred acts of worship that occurred. In later patriarchal times these women from the temples of Ishtar become the reviled whores of Babylon referred to in the Old Testament.


Those of you familiar with Inanna, will know her rich mythology supports an underworld journey that is a metaphor for an excursion into your own dark abyss, walking the black night of your own soul. But this all sounds so ominous when the many faces of Inanna only reveal the breadth and depth of this ancient deity whose name lived on for millennia in Goddesses such as Ishtar, Isis, Neith, Metis, Astarte and Cybele.

INANNAS High Priestess - "My Vulva awaits you my king ...I beg you to succumb to its sacred treasures!"
INANNA'S High Priestess - "My Vulva awaits you my king ...I beg you to succumb to it's sacred treasures!"

If and when you choose to journey with Inanna, be mindful of coming face to face with your own unbridled sexuality and a shadow journey in the underworld that will slay open the very depths of your soul ~Goddess of Sacred Sex

    Inanna is so pretty though! 💖 I always was more interested in the Greeks since they loved to bathe a lot and the sexual practices they got involved in (they always seemed more sexually open). I didn't know too much about the goddesses and gods they worshipped though. But it probably does make a bit more sense why they do what they do now (a little). Do you think because of Inanna that they were also more understanding of female sexuality than in our modern time today?
    Is this still revelant?
    • Yes, by far, but the understanding is now trending in the right direction again I think which is nice :)

    • Yeah. I kind of think religions are changing just a little bit since they realize that probably only 1% of people are going to wait until marriage to have sex with their partner. And that includes women. I mean, guys who follow a religion don't even wait until marriage so why keep telling women they have to wait? I think as long as you're with the right person then that's what does matter.

    • Yes, we are on the same page, totally!

  • Dazzler1983
    Don't think there is a goddess of love. It's just a natural human instinct.
    I like the way you think tho.
    • Thank you but it isn't my thinking, it is the thinking of those alive thousands of years ago in the ancient middle east, but I find enjoyment in it too :)

  • I like the goddess much, much more than the patriarchal judeo god. May she return in glory.
    • Lliam

      I've read Joseph Campbell's work on mythology and the Hero's Journey. It's worthwhile and fascinating stuff. But it strikes me that he was writing about men and would be helpful to MGTOW's in coming to grips with masculinity.
      With his insights into mythology, I wonder why he failed to write about the Sacred Feminine. I see the works that you cited in this and your last piece on Aphrodite. We need more stuff like this. It would benefit both women and men tremendously.

    • Thank you Mr Lliam :)

    • You didn't read the post naughty boy, you must be another one that prefers just looking at the pictures. For that you may receive a spanking from one the Goddess's High Priestess's... lol

      Inanna was an ancient Mesopotamian Goddess originally worshiped in Sumer and was later worshiped by the Akkadians, Babylonians, and Assyrians under the name Ishtar. Those civilizations were based in what is today known as Iraq

    • I gathered but all those peoples seemed to worship all the same gods under different names from the middle east to central asia, Europe, Britain and scandanavia up until the time of Christianity.

    Only problem is they weren't biological women.
