What ever happened to the art of seduction?
In this instant gratification of the take me here and now, and throw away culture, there is little room or time left for enticing someone into sexual activity.
A proper seduction needs obstacles, it needs resistance, it cannot proceed without them.
It's about engagement and feeling emotionally alive. Things have become too easy.
The creativity, mystery, and intellect of the art and maneuver have been lost.
A sign of the times? I certainly hope not.
What do you think? Is seduction a thing of the past, lost on the generations to come? -tM
