Cottytus

Cottytus was a member of the Greek pantheon, originally from Thrace and worshipped heavily in Athens. She was the goddess of immodesty, hedonism and debauchery. Her priests were called baptes from the Greek verb meaning "to wash". The baptes practiced obscene ceremonies at night; they included orgies so hedonistic even Cottytus herself was disgusted.

Alternative: Cotys
