sekhmet: the great harlot

sekhmet, goddess of ancient egypt: although she is a goddess of untamed violence, death, and blood, she is also a goddess associated with the wild ecstasy of love and sexuality. hers is the unleashed feminine sexuality, powerful and intensely passionate, which can frighten many people.

it is this untamed female sexuality which has frightened the christian church; within the book of revelation, she is denounced as the great harlot, and called ‘babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of abominations of the earth.’
