So, we’re still talking about sex this week, but we’re talking about Earth Mothers and their children. We’ll start with Gaia, and her son Kronos, who had a classic childhood rebellion, and castrated his father. We’ll also get into Kronos’s son Zeus, who would go on to dethrone his father. We’ll talk about Norse mythology, too, and look at the family that created the world, and worked together to make people.
