The Art of Seduction
About this deal
Referencing Casanova, Salome, Evita, and many others, Greene does his best work in using these examples to explain how they were effective in their seductive efforts.
In addition to having a strong following within the business world and a deep following in Washington, DC, these books are also being hailed by everyone from war historians to some of the heaviest hitters in the rap world (including Jay-Z and 50 Cent). The Rake may end in hell, but the flames surrounding him often make him seem that much more desirable to women.When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections and enslaved great minds. Almost all of us have one or two of the Anti-Seducer’s qualities latent in our character, and to the extent that we can consciously root them out, we become more seductive. The New Prude: excessively concerned with their outward appearance, underneath they want to release, but they fear judgement. Far more sophisticated than Strauss' manuals for adolescent losers and the sexually autistic, Greene is not interested in seduction as a mechanical application of rules for sex. Their modus operandi is to delay satisfaction alternating between unexplained warmth and coldness so that the victim stays in a state of anticipation not knowing what is coming next.
Greene uses Fronsac, the Duke de Richelieu [ disambiguation needed] and Gabriele d'Annunzio as examples of Rakes. It is your task to create that tension in the target, to stimulate feelings of anxiety, to lead them to and fro, so that the culmination of the seduction has real weight and intensity. The ideal lover, as the name suggests, represents a fantasy lover who makes the beloved feel lofty and great.He offers a sound corrective to moralists who, like repressed ideologues in politics, seem to leave more pain and suffering in their wake than do cynics and a-moralists. That language alone lets you see what the aim of the game is, and it is neither beautiful or lovely.
Just like the siren has an effect on men due to her physical presence, a rake has an effect on women due to his ability to show an ardent devotion to her.
O conteúdo atende, já li a versão reduzida pelo kindle e fiquei curiosa para ler a versão integral, mas a qualidade da impressão é bem mais ou menos. It's the exact same thing: be mean to get this person to convince you that you are the one for them.
