Diana and Callisto by Jollain
In Roman mythology, Callisto was a nymph whose name means “the most beautiful.” She was devoted to the goddess Diana and swore to remain a virgin in her honor. But when the god Jupiter saw Callisto he decided he had to get his hands on that beautiful virgin pussy. He transformed  himself into the likeness of Diana, in which form Callisto happily allowed him to have his way with her. This story had a huge appeal for artists, because it allowed them to portray the normally taboo subject of lesbian sex. The detail reproduced here is from a 1770 painting by Nicolas-RenĂ© Jollain.
