Ares and Aphrodite

Aphrodite's most famed affair was that with Ares. Aphrodite and Ares had 3 children, Harmonia, Deimos (Terror), and Phobus (Fear).

One day Ares and Aphrodite were laying together when Helios, the god of the sun, spied the couple enjoying each other. So Helios, who could not keep this to himself, told Hephestus who was enraged.

To catch Aphrodite in her act of infidelity, he made a net. When he saw Aphrodite and Ares together, he threw the net over them and trapped them while they were in a very private embrace.

But this was still not enough for Hephestaus. He invited all the Olympian gods to come and view the two.
