As sexual pleasure and activity counts to the display of fertility, she is worshipped as Goddess of Fertility as well.

Although the entire process is considered by many as scientific and biological, people don't let go their beliefs in gods and the powers of the universe and wind up following ancient traditions and rituals in order to conceive in good health.

Hermes was attracted towards Aphrodite's beauty and fell in love with her. Hermaphroditus, in Greek myth, was the son of Hermes and Aphrodite.
