I can remember the sentiment of the quote.

It said of the Venus Cult that all women before they were to marry, were taken to the Temple of Venus and had to accept money for sex from one person before they were allowed to marry.

They had to stay at the Temple until they had turned one trick.

Have you read of the Venus Cult?

No, didn't run across that one. The Romans considered Venus their ancestor, through Aeneas, son of Aphrodite and a mortal, Trojan prince. Greco-Roman lore has many trysts between mortals and immortals.

There were a LOT of Venus Cults, of different sorts. I can't find the one you mentioned either, but you remember seeing it, so it's there somewhere.
