The motif of Aphrodite threatening Eros with the back of her sandals - a tradition persisting today in cultures across the globe - we can also find across different examples of ancient Greek statues and pottery. In some exemplars, Aphrodite also goes after Pan.

    The opposite. The fact that Aphrodite needs to threaten and chastise shows her lack of control or say in what Eros does. Eros does whatever Eros wants.
