Mistaken Identities

Sex-related legends involving mistaken identities.

Plots involving partners who end up in bed with each other by mistake are common in literature and legend. In folklore, particularly, these tales often concern the punishment of someone who has committed a sexual "wrong": the person of power who uses his position to extort sexual favors, or the spouse who mistrusts his or her mate's faithfulness without just cause.
