About This Quiz

In mythology, the actual goddess of love is Aphrodite, and while there isn't one goddess of lust mentioned, there are many that could fall into that category. The goddesses all held extreme power, and some of them held that extreme power over men. What was it about them that drew men in and made them fall to their feet? No one really knows other than what is told in stories and studied in mythology. Since the root word of mythology is 'myth,' it is fair to say that these goddesses possess something other-worldly that had men falling in love or in lust. 

Do you find yourself drawing men in with seemingly no effort? If so, what are you drawing them in for? If most of them fall in love with you right off the bat, you've got your answer. If they fawn all over you, do anything for you, and just want to be al up in your business, then lust is your answer. But let's put a little more thought into that. Our carefully designed questions will be able to tell you for sure if you are more the goddess of love or lust. Are you ready to find out? Take the quiz now!
