VAUGEH – The goddess who embodied female physical beauty for the Tupari people who lived near the Rio Branco region of what is now Brazil. Her spouse MPOKALERO was her counterpart, the god who embodied male physical beauty. The two of them were also the patron deities of sexual desire and caused carnal attraction between people.
In Tupari beliefs when a person died and their spirit reached the realm of the dead they would purge themselves of the last vestiges of physical desire by having sex with Vaugeh (if the soul was from a man) or Mpokalero (if the souls was from a woman).
From that moment on the spirit knew relief from any twinges of desire.
