Stranger sex in ancient Greece #Taboo2sday

My latest book, Bred by the Spartans, opens with a series of chapters that pose the problem that's answered by the appearance of the two mighty Spartan warriors who rescue Thaleia from the worst effects of the curse that's on her: when you're cursed in such a way that every man who sees you wants to take you in the most humiliating way possible, things can go south quickly.
Clemaeus had not had a good morning. His mother had grumbled him awake before the sun, to take the fattened swine to the priests at Olympia. The priests had given him less than half of what the swine were worth. Now he faced the prospect of returning to his mother with a sum that would make her grumble all the rest of the day. 
When he saw the naked girl, though, the new sun seemed to brighten around him, with his mood. Leaning against the column like a return-gift from Zeus himself to his faithful servants--such men as raised the pigs that were sacrificed to him from time to time, like Clemaeus--her red hair in beautiful disarray, was the most beautiful young woman he had ever seen, entirely naked and waiting, it seemed just for him. 
Clemaeus could scarcely tell why, but the urge to have her immediately, to show her that even if he he could not get a good price for his pigs, Clemaeus of Olympia knew how to fuck a beautiful young woman, came irresistibly upon him.

When the beautiful young goddess Thaleia spurns Zeus’ attentions, he has her thoroughly and shamefully punished and then casts her down from Olympus to walk the earth as a mortal woman. Worse still, he places a curse upon her which will overcome any man who sees her with the desire to claim her in the most humiliating ways possible. Her only hope lies in an ancient power stronger even than the gods… Destiny has decreed that if, in spite of the curse, two men can make her confess that she yearns to be theirs, then she will find a happiness beyond her fate.  
After Thaleia’s sister throws herself at the feet of Apollo in desperation and begs for his aid, Apollo appears in a dream to Leontes and Theoleon, two of the bravest warriors of Sparta, and commands them to rescue Thaleia. When the men wake and find the girl naked and distressed, they are torn by two equally powerful instincts: to take her long and hard and make her blush with shame, and to love and protect her as their own.  
The three journey to the Oracle at Delphi, who gives them Apollo’s prophecy—that the descendant of two Spartan warriors and a goddess will one day save all Greece from its enemies. But if Thaleia bears the son Apollo has foretold and Zeus relents and allows her to return to Olympus, will her love for her two Spartans be greater than her desire for immortality?
Optional questions: 1) do you fantasize about stranger sex? 2) if you do, could you ever imagine actually doing it? (My answers: yes, and NO)

  1. Funny how a naked woman will make a man forget about the price of pigs. What's the phrase? Pearls before swine?

  2. Clemaeus? LOL Perfect name. I have this image of a backwater boy with two missing teeth. The Clems of the bygone era.
