The Loves of Zeus: Ganymede

In Greek mythology,  the God Zeus (a.k.a. Jupiter in Roman mythology)  had a huge number of lovers, including Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, who gave their names to the four largest moons of the planet Jupiter. Of these, Ganymede was the odd one out because he was male rather than female. According to legend, he was a young hero of legal age but extremely youthful appearance, with whom Zeus/Jupiter indulged in energetic sessions of deep-thrusting anal intercourse. Ganymede has become a symbol for the beautiful young male who attracts homosexual desire.
