Digging The Love Goddess

Berkley Z1905 1970

They Dug For A Statue And Started Digging Every Man In Sight

From the back:

The Love Goddess
Dr. Artemis Now, ardent feminist and femme fatale, had made a vow: sex equalled sexism. And nothing or no one could make her yield…
Except the lure of finding the Venus of Etruria, a long-buried and coveted treasure — even though the only way to finance the expedition was to submit to sex research. It was too much to resist — even for the staunch Artemis.
So it was off to Adora – only to find that the statue was made of the most powerful substance ever known to man… and ever to turn women on!
