In Norse mythology, Gunnlöð (Old Norse "war-foam") is a daughter of Suttung, who was set guard by her father in the cavern where he housed the mead of poetry. Gunnlöð was seduced by Odin, who according to the Prose Edda bargained three nights of sex for three sips of the mead and then tricked her, stealing all of it. However, the poem Hávamál of the Poetic Edda tells the story a bit differently:

It would seem, from this version of the tale, that Gunnlod helped Odin willingly, and that he thought well of her in return.
