There comes a time in every woman’s life where she flips her hair one too many times and laughs absurdly ‘feminine’ in hopes that an unsuspecting lad would gracelessly fall for her enchanting wits. You’ve done it, I’ve done it, every female that walks this planet has done it and newsflash; it’s called seduction.
The truth is we all have an inner seductress, and she comes out to play more often than we like to give her credit for. Think of those times you’ve swayed your hips a little more than necessary, or twirled your hair or bit your lip or given those sexy eyes, that’s your inner femme fatale!
Well, this article is dedicated to her and according to Robert Greene’s Art Of Seduction, she’s a diverse one. Here are the 8 types of seductresses listed in Robert Greene’s Art of Seduction + a bonus seductress concocted by The 21 Team.
- The Siren
The first type of seductress we have on the list is the siren, she is the ultimate male fantasy and embodies the words adventure and mystique; she preys on the premise of her victims need for new experiences and builds her persona around intrigue and irrationality that inevitably set her victims on an elusive chase of adventure. The siren never let’s her targets get too close, she keeps them enthralled and somewhat hypnotized with her exaggerated feminine aura.
From her clothing, to her sashay, to her sensual voice, she is a feminine force not to be reckoned with, the siren loves to put on a good show and keeps you hot on her trail, but one thing her victims never realize is that she will always be out of their reach. How can she possibly keep up the intrigue if she let’s you too close to see behind her allure?
- The Ideal Lover
The ideal lover sponges up all she can on your deepest desires and needs. She would affectionately question you, and like a puzzle she would unravel you whilst empathizing with you in your vulnerability. Gradually she would bring your hopeless fantasies and lost dreams to life, mirroring what you have mindlessly divulged and enticing you with your deepest desires and all it is that you crave in affection.
She would either enchant you by displaying your ideals in herself or she would try to unlock those ideals within you, either way she would seduce you by appearing as an ‘ideal lover’ for you, this she can only achieve when she gets you to drop your guard and reveal to her what it is you yearn. The ideal lover is able to know what ‘hope’ means to different people and predicate on that in her agenda to enthrall you and satisfy your needs.
- The Dandy
This type of seductress is a non-conformist, her lack of conformity to societal constraints makes her appealing to her targets, she provides this sense of forbidden freedom, the kind of freedom most people crave but cannot seem to obtain due to fear and the repressions of society.
Dandies love to dance between their femininity and masculinity, which is what excites their targets because they can’t seem to put them in a box or categorize them, this seductress is skilled in evoking repressed desires and tends to disarm their target with their immense self-possession despite their ambiguity when it comes to identifying their sex. The defying and explorative nature of a dandy makes her disarming and mysterious.
- The Natural
Naturals intriguingly present a childlike wonder to their targets although they are perfectly in tune with their adulthood, they have this innocent quality that makes them quite the charmer and they remind their victims vividly of their childhood, which many consider to be their golden age.
This type of seductress effortlessly makes her victims lower their guard through her carefree and pure representation of an escape from the everyday seriousness of adult life. The natural is vulnerable, spontaneous, innocent and mischievous. She essentially captivates her victims with her lost qualities of a child, although these childish traits of hers are what make her seductive, she can also be mature when she wants to. You can’t help but feel enamored of naturals, they have a way of instilling their victims with a need to protect and help them.
- The Coquette
The coquette is quite the frustrating seductress. She is an ultimate tease and she loves to lead her victims on without offering instant gratification.
This seductress is self-sufficient, she makes it known that she does not need you, and her victims always pursue her in hopes that she would surrender to them but she sparks up this inner desire within us to obtain what we cannot have or what we shouldn’t have. The coquette is hot, cold and somewhat narcissistic. She attracts her targets with her sensuality and soul stirring words then distances herself from them just when they think they have her, she will plant a seed of desire in your mind that would continue to grow regardless of her fleeting presence or nerve wracking absence.
- The Charmer
This seductress doesn’t mind making you the center of attention because she understands fully the three fundamental laws of human nature which are; the law of grandiosity, the law of narcissism and the law of defensiveness. She gets her targets to submit to her ‘charm’ by stroking their ego, building their self esteem and appealing to their vanity by making them talk about themselves.
The charmer is somewhat an infusion of an Ideal Lover and a Coquette. Like the ideal lover she would make her victims feel special by playing on their deepest emotions and bringing them into warm light, she would avoid all kinds of conflict and bring you personalized pleasure. She typically possesses the skills and resources to help you in all areas of life; she is your ‘Princess Charming’. The charmer also tries to stifle any indicators of her romantic and sexual agendas, she is skilled in veiling her seductive advances by distancing herself and giving mixed signals in terms of romance, this is where we can draw an affinity to the coquette. She gets her targets to submit, with her indulgent, calm and outwardly focused aura.
- The Star
The star has the uncanny power to mix reality and myth, she loves to present herself as an object of fascination with her larger than life persona which she subtly contrasts by playing up her human qualities, this is what her targets find most intriguing.
She seduces her targets by enchanting their subconscious mind, she appeals to their human fascination of the strange and the mythical, her victims find themselves fascinated by her and can relate to her at the same time. We are naturally drawn to the mythical which makes this type of seductress powerful, the star can present herself as a fetish object an ability most people can’t because of their inability to control their complexities and their reactive and moody nature. Stars are almost or completely of celebrity status, they are almost too dream like to picture crossing our paths.
- The Charismatic
This type of seductress has a powerful personality, when she steps into a room she effortlessly steals the attention. The charismatic exudes confidence and energy, she carries herself like she knows where she’s going which is bound to make her targets follow her in an awestruck trans.
The charismatic is able to seduce by creating contradictions within her personalities, she can put on a strong front of power and strike you with her vulnerability, she can act all kind and sweet and get you tongue tied with her cruelty. She gives her victims a strong sense of purpose through osmosis, she has a strong belief in herself that makes it almost impossible for her targets to find flaws in her character or plans, her ambience lulls her victims into being more reliant and believing in their cause or values, the charismatic uses her eloquence and liveliness to mesmerize her targets.
- The Olori of Enjoyment
The Olori of Enjoyment is the Siren 2.0. her seduction is respecter of no relationship, in other words, she’s not afraid to steal your man. She is always down for a good time and she is somewhat like the charismatic; she loves to lead regardless of who’s following.
This type of seductress fills you with the thrill of having a good time and will have you drunk on her enflamed passion for you. She is skilled in relaxing her victims and will spoil you silly only if you do the same to her. The Olori of Enjoyment is the most distinct of all the seductresses; she has a feminine allure that rivals that of The Siren and like The Charmer, she possesses the resources you need to help you in all areas of life.
