    Men are painfully easy creatures to seduce.

    I cannot count how many young men I have lured with nothing more than flirty text messages and tight dress. If I take a particular liking to a boy, I can have him wrapped around my finger in at least a month. It's as though I have a collection of men who would date/sleep with me...
