Tupari live near the Rio BrancoVAUGEH – 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.

  2. Getting to make out with a goddess is an interesting intro to the afterlife!

  3. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thank you

  4. Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is actually irritating. A good blog with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this web-site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  6. You have the best entries on their gods.
