From the Mahabharata on the story between Agastya and Lopamudra:

After a considerable time, O king, the illustrious Rishi [Agastya] one day beheld Lopamudra, blazing in ascetic splendour come up after the bath in her season. And pleased with the girl, for her services, her purity, and self control, as also with her grace and beauty, he summoned her for marital intercourse.
