Hades told her before he gave her the pomegranate was if she married him, she would be his equal in everything and would ensure that people gave her the reverence she deserved. (Homeric Hymn to Demeter: And Aidoneus, ruler over the dead, smiled grimly and obeyed the behest of Zeus the king. For he straightway urged wise Persephone, saying : ‘Go now, Persephoneia, to your dark-robed mother, go, and feel kindly in your heart towards me : be not so exceedingly cast down; for I shall be no unfitting husband for you among the deathless dods, that am own brother to father Zeus. And while you are here, you shall rule all that lives and moves and shall have the greatest rights among the deathless gods : those who defraud you and do not appease your power with offerings, reverently performing rites and paying fit gifts, shall be punished for evermore.’ When he said this, wise Persephoneia was filled with joy and hastily sprang up for gladness. But he on his part secretly gave her sweet pomegranate seed to eat, taking care for himself that she might not remain continually with grave, dark-robed Demeter.)
Poseidon raping Medusa only occurs in a ROMAN story by Ovid. In the actual original Greek story she was the youngest daughter of Phorkys and Keto, two monsters, she had two older sisters named Euryale and Sthenno, who also had the power to turn people to stone, but they were immortal. Greek Mythology portrays her as always being a monster and engaging in CONSENSUAL intercourse with Poseidon. (Hesiod, Theogony 270 ff Greek epic C8th or C7th B.C.: "Poseidon, he of the dark hair, lay with one of these Medusa, one of the Gorgons, in a soft meadow and among spring flowers.") Sure as hell doesn't sound like being raped in Athena's temple.
And yeah, Zeus was horny 24/7, I have nothing to say about that.
