The Amazon series, which has been hailed as the new Game of Thrones, opened with a particularly graphic scene lifted straight from the Neil Gaiman book, setting the tone for the journey ahead.
Bilquis, the goddess of love based loosely on the biblical Queen of Shiba, lured a sweaty middle-aged man into her love nest, before their liaison took an unexpected twist.
The ancient lord, played by Yetide Badaki, lustfully played with her prey before she hurled him into bed.
However, gazing into the ceiling, Bilquis soon burst into a tantric chant and engulfed the stranger with her genitalia.Related articles
