Quotation Of The Day: Porn And Mythology Edition

Writing at The Daily Beast, Lizzie Crocker makes the allusion to draw the link between a California initiative to require actors in adult films to wear condoms and the chief god of Olympus who was known for his many amorous adventures:
Ron Jeremy holds a Guinness World Record for his appearances in porn. He’s starred in 2,000 X-rated films and had sex with more women than Zeus
If Crocker had sat through my mythology class, she would have learned that most of Zeus's conquests could be shown to be a patriarchal religion's efforts to dominate and weaken the symbolic power of the matriarchy, but why should one let facts get in the way of a good one liner.
