We want to be seduced, reprised

To be taken by a man … is one of the most euphoric feelings a woman can ever experience.

I got to taste it recently, the sensation of my energy surrendering into his, sitting on the bench in a restaurant, a feeling so powerful that I couldn’t even speak. Words were just gone, and my head melted into his shoulder.

We want to be taken. Really we do.

Being taken by a man is erotic in a way that defies any logical explanation. It feels like touching the Divine. It feels like surrendering to the What Is.

It feels like trust and passion and power. Like letting go completely and melting into that Place where intimacy and freedom become One.

When I have to do the initiating, or when the guy is hesitant or shy or doesn’t lead, I don’t get to have that experience, and then I’d just as soon not have sex at all.

What if a man texted me and said:

“I want you right now. Where are you? I’m coming over.”

That would send goosebumps all over my body.

What if he followed through and came to find me and pushed my body against the wall and had his way with me? And what if he did all that with no doubt or hesitation and with absolutely congruent inner confidence?

Mmmmmmmm… that would feel amazing.

We want to be taken.

We want to be seduced.

    I will admit there is something very arousing about being able to seduce a woman and having my way with them.

    It’s meant to be a very powerful experience for both partners.

    I get it. And I wonder why so much hesitation exists within me. Why is this domain so damn scary? If it is really as simple as taking a strong lead, what is holding men back?

    It’s my mission to work that out.

    I guess there are lots of varying preferences… personally, I don’t want to be seduced, I want to collaborate.
    I want to give someone joy, meaning, depth, understanding and love & I want it to be reciprocated.

    I don’t mind a hesitant or shy guy. I am willing to help him along. Actually, quite enjoy it, once in awhile.

    If he is without doubts, maybe it’s too easy?

    You know, I felt that edge tonight after almost crashing my car. That adrenalin rush after having made a split-second decision that could have been very costly….and yet feeling so alive, like I could do anything at that moment. I want that more, only with the consciousness to choose to live at the edge without harm to myself and others.

    Erika, a question.

    Is seduction an ephemeral thing? If it is, does this mean that you will live for those moments where a different guy will ‘seduce’ you every weekend?

  8. Erika says:

    Well hello, old soul –

    Welcome to the blog.

    Thank you for asking me such a provocative question.

    I don’t view seduction as an ephemeral thing, I view it as a lifelong practice of connecting with people. A powerful way to overcome the illusion of our separateness.

    As for whether it’ll be a different guy every weekend, lol, not necessarily. I am actually

    Thanks for sharing a guy’s perspective on all this. Yeah, I’ve talked with a lot of guys about this now, and it’s just so cool how they have the same euphoric experience taking a woman as I have being taken. Nice that the higher power worked it out that way for us ;-)

    I highly recommend to my blog readers checking out Infinity’s site btw: http://

    “I don’t view seduction as an ephemeral thing, I view it as a lifelong practice of connecting with people.” If you frame it that way, sure it’s a life long thing, but how do you view “seduction” that eventually fizzles out after sex? Do people just get bored of each other or what?

    Overcome the illusion of separateness? If that’s the case, then some people are not part of this “unity

    You claim you “want to be taken”, and then you put up a post stating your regret in not remaining celibate?

    Gimme a break…..

  14. Erika says:

    Regret is not the right word. No regrets, only present moment feeling.

    But you are right, when I say “we want to be taken,” I left something out. It’s always implied that it will be accompanied with honesty and integrity.

    Hey, this blog is part of how I work all this stuff out. I’m not always going to be consistent.

    direction :-)
