Seduction tips from The Little Prince

Prince Charming reads up on seduction tips.

Prince Charming reads up on seduction tips.

Oprah.com has an article on love and seduction, and bizarrely uses a quote from The Little Prince as a springboard on how to “seduce your man.”

One of my favorite quotes about love comes from the book The Little Prince: “It’s only with the heart that one can see rightly; what’s most important is invisible to the eye.”

Nothing wrong so far. In fact, that is a great quote. But wait.

I love that the Little Prince recognized that the heart (another metaphysical word for soul) is the best lens for love—making this Little Prince a major Prince Charming.

OK. “lens for love” is a little cheesy, as is “prince charming”. We love the Little Prince, but I don’t think anyone would call that celestial little boy a “Prince Charming.” In fact, he got a little weird from time to time.

All of this brings me to…seduction tips for your man.

Wait. What?

The use of the quotes got really creepy really fast. Oddly, the author never again refers to the Little Prince. Perhaps she realized that using an image of a child (albeit a fictional one) to discuss adult seduction was inappropriate?? YOW!
