it seems i'm having to endure repeated lessons with regards to seductive women: do i surround myself with them, in the hope that they'll do my bidding? do i attract them as an offering of temptation, watching like a voyeur as the same story plays out, as they lure and capture? what am i so afraid of? what is it about a being a temptress that frightens me? do we need to be seductive? isn't seduction an elaborate spell women cast temporarily to feed their egos? is it empowering?
