   Not that Im aware of.
   Sexuality was not a topic especially presented in Mexican escultures. Plus, homosexuality was forbidden and a estigma on mexican ancient cultures.

Prometheus stole the fire from the Gods to share it with the men. The mesoamerican myths abouyt the discovery of the fire are different from the ancient european cultures.

That is true. Also Aztecs generally believed desease was caused by sexual misconduct

Indeed. The Aztecs believed fire was given to men by Mixcoatl, who created it by rotating the heavens like a fire drill, which is completely different from the Greek myths.
