The Seduction Excuse - I don't buy it



seduce [sɪˈdjuːs]
vb (tr)
1. to persuade to engage in sexual intercourse
2. to lead astray, as from the right action
3. to win over, attract, or lure


Saturday afternoon. I was standing in the Costco line behind Phoebe and Naomi. I don't know these women. They were blonde and dressed in identical uniforms of skinny jeans, tight v-neck sweaters, high heeled booties and oversized purses. I only know that their names are Phoebe and Naomi because every other sentence was "Are you serious, Phoebe?" "I'm totally serious, Naomi!" If I had to guess, I'd place them in their mid-to-late twenties but if they keep pancaking the makeup like that, their skin will age ten times faster than the rest of them. Anywho...

Phoebe and Naomi perplexed me. They had a huge pre-cooked dish of Marie Callender's baked Mac 'n Cheese nestled up next to a case of Coke Zero, three packages of celery, pomegranate juice, coffee, 6 bottles of wine, popcorn, one of those industrial tins of Danish butter cookies, a twelve-pack of Intuition razors plus a 27" inch TV and the Water for Elephants DVD. What was that life like?

The contents of their cart was befuddling but their conversation was so much worse. Me and the guy behind me were treated to a play-by-play of how Naomi found herself waking up in "some dude named Benny"'s bed earlier that morning. Naomi swears she had no intention of ending up there. In fact, Friday night she had gone out with Steve who was being a jerk so she walked over the pool tables and picked up a game and apparently Benny as well.

Then Naomi launched into the oldest tale in the book. Benny really listened to her. He was so sweet, she went home with him just to continue talking. When they got there, he poured wine and made brownies. (At this point, me and dude behind me exchanged glances. I've met "Benny" before and dude behind me has been "Benny". Benny was laying down page 21 of the Game Handbook.) Benny had a jetted tub in his bathroom. He suggested running Phoebe a bath so she could relax. Benny just happened to have girly-scented bath gels and flowers and candles. Fast-forward to the inevitable and Benny did all kinds of right by Naomi several times over.

Yet there she stood in Costco with Morning After Remorse "Can you believe I did all that with some guy I don't even know!" and then she pulled Le Lame Excuse: "He seduced me! I got caught up in the moment." I almost bit my tongue in half holding in the "Girlie, Please!" that was dying to spring forth from my lips.

Here's my problem with The Seduction Excuse - it implies that one has no decision making power in what comes next. It completely disregards free will. In listening to Naomi's Friday Night Adventures, I counted at least twenty places where she could have not gone with him and/or walked away. At least several opportunities to pull her panties on and exit the premises. You get caught up in the moment for... well... a moment. She spent over twelve hours with this dude and apparently was naked for quite a few of them.

It's a huge pet peeve of mine when people try to pull the seduction excuse. Don't get me wrong, I do believe that there are deliberately sexually predatory folks out there who live to meet and seduce others. But unless you are drugged, undercover or harmed (which is something else entirely) - why can't you say no? Since when was a polite "no thank you" so hard to squeak out? And if people are still pulling this "swept away" nonsense (side-eye to Shawn's ex-lady friend from last week) - can we stamp that as lame?

Speak to me, BougieLand. What say you? Can a grown-assed person in charge of their own faculties really fall back on The Seduction Excuse or is it just a way to hide the fact that they did what they wanted to do all along? When a person takes you home and starts popping bottles and whipping up baked goods... don't we know what's up? Someone help me out with this one. Can you really be seduced if you don't want to be?

No.  Sober behavior is elective and to say otherwise is immature and speaks to a lack of accountability.  ADULTS own their behavior.  Period.

Carolyn said...

What is old girl complaining about? Sounds like Benny gave her what she wanted and what she needed, several times over. Be a grown-up, admit you did what you wanted to do and you liked it, and quit telling all your business in the middle of damn Costco.

David Parrish, Jr.(Inkognegro) said...

Well...It was either that or Take responsibility.  And We can't have any of that. 


This IS America.  More specifically for Pheebs...This IS White Texas...and if something ain't go right..it COULDN'T POSSIBLY be her doing. 

SingLikeSassy said...

I'm sorry, I can't get past the part where she went home with a strange man. I'm stuck right there. You know why I'm stuck there? Because I watch L&O: SVU and L&O: Criminal Intent.

thinklikeRiley said...

Wayment.
Benny hustled girlie into walking out on her date, got her home and made brownies? Dude made dat ish an event.

*makes note to step game up*

They both won. She need to take the W and shut up. Shoot if she act right, she might get cupcakes next time.

MeetCharlieL said...

Imma need grown folks to quit acting like they are still in jr. high. Dude did not get over on a brownie and bubble bath, Naomi wanted it, she got it and now she's cleaning it up for the girlfriend. Stop.

You are right, no one gets seduced without wanting to get seduced. Period.

AnnettePearl said...

There are so many degrees of Grown Girl FAIL here, I don't know where to begin. But I will just answer your questions - the seduction/swept away/caught up excuse is a way to side step the "slut shaming".

The minute she left the spot and went home with him, c'mon.

Brandon St.Randy said...

I don't see the problem here. She wanted to get swept away. Benny obliged, with skill and baked goods. I see this is posted under "What Part of the Game." Nawl. THIS IS THE GAME.  At its core. If she wants to clean it up a little for her friend so she doesn't look like a smut, so be it, but looks like everybody got what they were looking for out of this deal.

that.is.all!

I Am Me said...

Yo - can I get that brownie recipe from Benny tho?

MsJamie14 said...

I don't buy it either.

The whole "I was seduced line" is just a form of damage control. She threw it out there so that she wouldn't look easy. However, I doubt she had any real remorse about what went down with Benny.

Jennifer said...

"Benny had a jetted tub in his bathroom..."

*singing loud and wrong* BENNY!  BENNY AND THE JETS!

ok I'm delirious on a Monday morning, back to work....

rhenewal said...

The seduction excuse is just that: an excuse. Some women just don't like to own up to their desires and actions, as grown people should. The only time in life that I've been "seduced" was... never. I've had beautifully romantic nights wherein I was slowly lured into the bedroom and onto the bed, but I knew exactly where said allure was heading. If I didn't want it, wouldn't have happened. Because I am a reasoning adult. I know my mind, and an not afraid/ashamed of my body/needs.

Women need to stop this nonsensical "I don't know how it happened. He seduced me." That's abdication of responsibility for one's actions.

Typealady said...

YOU AIN'T GOT TO LIE CRAIG!!!

Obviously Naomi doesn't watch the plethora of crime shows detailing how women vanish into thin air, never to be heard from or seen again...WITHOUT the benefit of  adult beverages, brownies and bubble baths.  Just be thankful that you lived to see another day and learn to keep play by play reviews of your heauxtastic behavior to yourself!

^THIS^ lol.
trying to compute the complaint, even a windows PC can't won't return the error.

Sol_dier said...

I get the popping bottles thing, but brownies? were they special brownies?. 

*rethinks life*

rozb said...

She got "got" because she wanted to be "got". Trying to save face with ol' girl, who BTW, is still gonna call her a ho when she is talking to her other friends about her.

We stopped having "seduction" as an excuse ever since we played Boys Catch the Girls and we ran a little slower, hid in obvious places...don't act like I'm the only one.

You know that opening piano line was playing in my head the WHOLE time she was talking!

DCbywayofCali said...

Okay I bake.  Brownies from a box take at least 30 minutes, and scratch 40-50.  You mean to tell me that in 30-60 minutes time you didn't see that YOU were really dessert? Boo. Bish. Bye.

taut_7 said...

she wanted it. she needed an excuse so she wouldn't feel bad. end of story. 

Alvin Milton said...

I think she knew what was up once she walked over there and most definitely once she left with him, she was just trying to play it off while telling her friend so she doesn't seem like she bones guys she doesn't really know (esp on the first night).

But I don't think seduction is an excuse, I think its an art.

The other party has to more or less be willing or at least curious though.

Jasmin said...

Don't forget Criminal Minds!

Alvin Milton said...

word. brownies tho?

I think son was in love.

*adds brownies to repertoire

ClayJones said...

I want to be mad at Benny because if this tale ever spreads far and wide, brethren will be stocking Betty Crocker like Trojans. Plus Benny gave away the entire goody bag on the first night. Wine, candles, sweets and bath time? Damn son!

Naomi's shame is that she couldn't just admit that Steve wasn't lighting her fire and Benny looked like a good option to try.

Seduction is a two-way street. One person does it, the other person agrees to get done.

Veronica Miller said...

I once heard someone say (or maybe it was me) that seduction is simply convincing a person to do something they already want to do. To say, Nah, Noms. You knew EXACTLY what was happening, and if you didn't, I blame your parents and your priest.


So she smutted it up for a night. It's fine. If Pheobs is her girl, she really doesn't need to clean it up. And if she REALLY was ashamed about it, she wouldn't be yapping in aisle 3. Ma'am. Go to the cafe area and have a seat.

michaeldavis said...

Brownies , though? 

To quote Savon from Love Jones, "shhhhh man that's better than Michael Jordan's comeback"

Sol_dier said...

but no-one needed to know. It could have been between her,  the devil and the deep blue sea.
But then again, its not quite scandalous until you've shared it lol 

Sol_dier said...

Come to think of it, if the art of seduction has been scrapped down to wine & brownies then I need a time machine or a means of creating my own damn era.

iRefuse.

michaeldavis said...

a stadium full of seats

SingLikeSassy said...

OK, I'm back. I feel like she just wanted to tell this story, cause for real, a dude you met at a bar took you home and got you to take your panties off with some brownies. You gotta tell somebody. She just tacked that seduction part on to the end cause as she started wrapping up the story she realized, um, this sounds a lil' bit heaux-ish. Lemme clean this up some.

Lady4Real said...

"He seduced me" translation: "I feel slutty and don't want to own the label so I am going to place blame on ye ole seduction." I say it's 2011, Do you Boo-Boo if you want to go home with a random dude, get ya romantic on and play horizontal, polka then polka as you please. If you don't want your sheniangians in the streets then keep ya mouth closed, no one has to know what you did and who you did it with, that's between you, the dude and the four walls of the house you got your freak on in.

Grown-assed persons know the deal when it's being brokered, negotiations begin at the ordering of wine and appetizers, when it's time to close the deal you can sign with a kiss or walk away with a good night and wave of the hand. People do what they want, no one makes you do a damn and if they did you should be telling your story to the Po-Po not ya homie, file a complaint and send them to Le Jail. If you ain't talking rape then you are talking consent and should be happy that you got ya slap and tickle on.

Dr. Peppa said...

This right here. If you don't wanna sound like a heaux, keep your heauxnanigans to yo'sef. Ain't nobody asked her all of that. Unless she came home with brownie pieces hanging off her azz, she coulda taken that to the grave.

I thought maybe she was going to say he put something in the brownies. But she didn't speak on any hallucinations or black outs, so the brownies really had no meaning in the story, other than EXTRA on her bulls**t!

CaliGirlED said...

DEAD!!!

Pure Choco said...

Okay, if I got got for some Duncan Hines and some Calgon, I might cast about for bullshiggity excuses as well. :-/

CaliGirlED said...

*reads through comments*

I have nothing to add except that Phoebe must believe in that same line of thinking, or is really not a good/long-time friend. Insert me into that convo, "Girl you need to quit playin! You walked Benny down and then went to his house, you knew what you were doin!"

*mumbles* Silly rabbits!!!

bashowell said...

*tsk* There's no such thing as seduction.  Either you want it or you don't.  And if you want it you're gonna take it.

La said...

We throw caution and our panties to the wind off moscato and Betty Crocker now? Oh, ok.
You’re absolutely right Chele; this is no different than ol’ girl from last week wanting to be “convinced” to break her 90 day rule. And I will say it again just like last week; she essentially wants to be absolved from all judgment that her choices might bring her. If you can’t be woman enough to admit you’re DTF over a game of pool, a well-placed concerned face, and some easy bake brownies, then you have no business getting horizontal. With anyone.
If he really wanted to “just talk” they coulda stayed at the bar or retreated to their nearest 24 hour diner. If a stranger invites you to their house late at night, you know the deal. Just be real about it. It’s not hard to say no. It’s hard to say no when you don’t want to.
We’re all grown-ups here. You can’t be seduced. You have to be a willing participant. There’s nothing wrong with feeling enamored with someone and following them home to get some pipe work done. Just don’t pull the lame “he seduced me” card to assuage any guilt you may feel about your sexual shenanigans.

La said...

If she does feel that way, this says more about their friendship than about her to me. Because as much as my male and female friends slut it up, we might joke around but we never judge each other. Maybe she needs to rethink her friendships.

Leon X said...

Benny could pull out all the stops because he had no intentions of ever seeing her again and needing to top himself. lol

Oh jeez, yes! How many times have female victims disappeared after going home with strangers, meeting UP with strangers on their own, jogging through the damn woods all alone, etc? Those shows are life lessons, man!

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

Look, man, unless he drugged you, tied you up, threatened you - in other words, FORCED YOU - then what's the complaint here?

So ordered by the court of GrownAzzNess (gavel pound)

Ivory Tabb said...

This is just it I don’t believe in seduction tactics nor do I
believe in I had too much to drink. To me they are both the same thing an
excuse. You know what’s going on you are just trying to come up with an excuse
to make yourself not feel so bad in the morning


But the reason why you feel so bad in the morning is because
you don’t want to be labeled a heauxxx. That to me is the biggest problem. See Benny
right here is the man he was the player from the Himalayas that’s stepped his
game up proper with the baked goods. Not once has anyone called him a heauxxx,
But poor Naimo just got called every name in the book for playing adults games,
why is that bougie land? 

GrownAzzMan said...

Wayment. "Heauxtastic"?????    LOL

NY2VA said...

Shoot if she act right, she might get cupcakes next time.

Step that game up just a lil bit more and he might make that good homemade butter cream frosting.  
*Hums No Hands*

NY2VA said...

DEATHED!!!!

NY2VA said...

He wasn't in love.  Game recognizes game, and Benny recognized that she would break him off in exchange for some tasty baked goods.

GrownAzzMan said...

"There’s nothing wrong with feeling enamored with someone and following them home to get some pipe work done."

I had to stop reading for a minute at 'pipe work done'.

NY2VA said...

EXACTLY!  Those brownies were simply a softening agent to ensure that she would be down for WHATEVER.  "He baked me brownies in the middle of the night.  Of course I'm gonna let him (insert freakiest freak nasty fun time activity here)."

Jamie Wesley said...

Wait a minute. She went home with some dude she didn't know, got naked and took a bath. Who does that? Oh, I know. Someone who wants to have sex. But she was seduced? Please.

Also, why do people talk about their personal business in public places ALL THE TIME? I want to tap them on the shoulder and say, "You do know I can hear you, right?"

CaliGirlED said...

Awesome pictures Chele!!! And let me add that these pics are clear indicators of grown-up activities to come. If you find yourself in either of these scenes, don't partake unless you plan to partake!...Some folks need to just stay in the kiddie pool!

CaliGirlED said...

HA!!! I missed that! *hollers at heauxtastic*

BklynBajan said...

She gave it up for brownies ya'll! Didn't even hold out for a full meal....

CaliGirlED said...

"I want to tap them on the shoulder and say, 'You do know I can hear you, right? "...Right!

BklynBajan said...

Who said Benny was the man? Brownies & bubble bath catches low hanging fruit. I'm not mad at him - he put his bait out there and she bit. If she was acting grown about it then they can go on about their business with no labels or judgement attached to either of them. The fact that she's playing the "seduction" card is why she gets the side eye and undercover heaux tag from me.

NY2VA said...

We're all grown, so I'm pretty sure that we have all engaged in our own specific brands of heaux sh*t from time to time in our youth.  No?  It was just me?  Oh... okay.  Well anyway,  grown women own their heaux sh*t and homegirl was not wearing her grown-up panties, if in fact she was wearing any at all.   That child was not seduced.  She ditched her date, went home with the next dude, handled her business, got up in the morning and went to the Costco.  If she was grown enough to do all of that,  then she shouldn't need to put a disclaimer on her behavior.  

I have a question though.  Was she a lil thick?  Did she have some meat on her bones?  How was dude able to ascertain that she would be THAT appreciative of baked goods?  

BlackButterfly said...

"Because I watch L&O: SVU and L&O: Criminal Intent"<--Truth!!!

My family tells me I need to stop watching these shows because I don't need any help (in not trusting folks) but I have said time and time again these show scenarios could save a life.

BlackButterfly said...

Ah yes the early 20's.  The very reason I enjoy looking forward and not backwards. 

There are a lot of people that have done dumb thank the Lord he saved me from my ignorant self things in their 20's but at least I owned mine.  When you know better you are supposed to do better but I am guessing that Naomi will have some more of these FAIL episodes on display pretty soon but hopefully not in COSTCO or any other public place.

NIAnaturally said...

She thought she was going back to his house to finish "talking?" When I want to continue a good conversation with a man, I suggest we go to IHop, or some other after hours spot. I'm not going to his house to take a bath and eat brownies. smh...

Poor thing regrets her hoochie mama sh*t. Honestly, she shouldn't even be telling her friend about this in the first place. Discretion would have been more appropriate.

Just_A_Thought1218 said...

Let's review the definition that Chele, helpful bougienista that she is, posted for our benefit:
seduce [sɪˈdjuːs]
vb (tr) 1. to persuade to engage in sexual intercourse2. to lead astray, as from the right action3. to win over, attract, or lure
So, based on that, can one be seduced? Yes indeed! Seduction just lowers inhibition and hesitation - it doesn't force you to do anything that hasn't at least crossed your mind, even if you initially shut it down.  Not na'an thing in that definition is talking about coercion, which bougie cuz most helpfully explained as a matter for the po-pos.  People can be persuaded, convinced, and led to give up the drawers for a lot of things.  I mean, for a one night stand, benny pulled out all kinds of stops to help convince ol' girl. If you are one to engage in cocoa stirring with people who's government name you aren't even sure of, then you could do a lot worse than someone who pulls out the fancy bath products and Betty Crocker.  He even let her stay the night, lol.  I mean, Naomi or pHeobe, whatever her name is, should have used more discretion because going home with a strange man is not what's hot in the streets for a woman trying to make it to old age in good health and disease and trauma free.  But, she wanted to get served - she got served, and by some one who made an effort to convince her that she was getting swept up in the moment.

CaliGirlED said...

Because she's playin!

CaliGirlED said...

*hollers*

Jubi The Great said...

I really hate when women use the "I was seduced!" excuse. If you gon stir the cocoa on the first night, or whatever, be a woman & make that conscience decision. Don't hide behind "he seduced me" stuff - be a woman & own your sexuality & your choices.

Jubi The Great said...

Please don't do that. I need them to keep talking so we have something to discuss on the Twitter later #thanks. LOL

Singlelif said...

Brownie's though ? She could've at least held out for a two piece and a biscuit.

*Sidenote: I finally figured out how to comment from work. I think..

Sol_dier said...

20 quid. in your plate. 
thank you, pls.

Sol_dier said...

We are all adults. If you want to get horizontal with someone on the first night, first minute, first second of meeting. It doesn't matter, you do what you are comfortable doing.

However, to then stand in the middle of a public aisle, recounting your adult intimate affairs only to blame it on seduction via brownies and wine... well, you get a few side-eyes from strangers.

rozb said...

Speaking of "seduction" - a 4th woman has just appeared with Gloria Allred to lay claim that Herman Cain sexually harassed her. Looks like Herman and Bill Clinton has the same taste...

J B said...

I think she had the homemade butter cream frosting....

If she'd wanted to say no, she would have.  She got caught up because she wanted to.

JoycelynC said...

Being grown 'aint all about fun and doing whatever you want.  Most times you must also take responsibility for said fun and doing what you want.  She was not seduced, she made a conscious decision and she should own it.  I know many people, myself included, who have done some dumb things when I was just entering adulthood.  I thank the Lord every day that my dumb decisions did not lead to serious consequences.  Maybe this how the phrase "young, dumb and full of c*m" came about. 

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

I see what you did thur. >:3

Singlelif said...

Brownies ? Really ?  She couldn't at least hold out for a "two piece and a biscuit" ?  

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

*slayed*

mutemia said...

I agree, part of the reason women use the "seduction" excuse is because they don't want to be called hoes, sluts or what have you.  Seeing as how, women who "sleep around" get called hoes I can't blame her for trying to find an excuse. Although not gonna lie, her story sounded ridiculous. I would not have included the bit about the bath.  lol

Melzie said...

Chele, I have to tell ya, for some reason your posts manage to make me think of R&B songs...this one conjured up "Words" by India & Anthony D. Granted only a few of the lyrics apply in this case and they're out of the song's context but...

"Can't tell you nothin you ain't already heard....No matter what I say it's nothin but words." I'll say for the record that as a grown woman I've had a few times that I wanted to get caught up, but these young chicas have to learn the hard way like many of have...lol

...or the brownies, for that matter.

AndreaPlaid said...

Ay yi yi! Costco Naomi''s been reading too many romance novels and watching The Notebook too many times.  

I'm with the other commenters on this one: Naomi tried alla that "swept away" ish to not say that she had herself a jolly good time with Benny. What she really doesn't want to admit is that Benny was a better cook (in many ways) than the dude she left behind at the bar and that she needs to chuck deuces at Steve.

AndreaPlaid said...

Trey...just stop. :-D
