English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. seduce

    To allure is to draw as with a lure by some charm or some prospect of pleasure or advantage. We may attract others to a certain thing without intent; as, the good unconsciously attract others to virtue. We may allure either to that which is evil or to that which is good and noble, by purpose and endeavor, as in the familiar line, "Allured to brighter worlds, and led the way," Goldsmith Deserted Village, l. 170. Lure is rather more akin to the physical nature. It is the word we would use of drawing on an animal. Coax expresses the attraction of the person, not of the thing. A man may be coaxed to that which is by no means alluring. Cajole and decoy carry the idea of deceiving and ensnaring. To inveigle is to lead one blindly in. To tempt is to endeavor to lead one wrong; to seduce is to succeed in winning one from good to ill. Win may be used in either a bad or a good sense, in which latter it surpasses the highest sense of allure, because it succeeds in that which allure attempts; as, "He that winneth souls is wise," Prov. xi, 30.

    Synonyms:
    allure, attract, cajole, captivate, coax, decoy, draw, entice, inveigle, lure, tempt, win

    Antonyms:
    chill, damp, deter, dissuade, drive away, repel, warn

How to use seduce in a sentence?

  1. Von Teese:

    If you think too much about how to seduce someone else, it’s an epic fail, to seduce someone is to make them want to know more about you, to be part of your world. So if you are trying to please someone else, you’re failing at seduction. I always say to think about yourself and how you present yourself to the world and how you practice that every day. I believe in wearing my nice lingerie every single day. It’s a moment that doesn’t take any extra time out of your day. It’s also a small way to exude glamour and beauty in everyday life.

  2. Didier Conrad:

    We didn't want to develop a character who would be based on her seductive side as we usually do with female characters in Asterix. Most of the time they are young attractive women who seduce Obelix and their role stops there.

  3. Anuj Somany:

    There's often a great deception to an eye attraction and to validate HIS point, an invisible Almighty created the beauty in the women to seduce the men.

  4. Thierry Wasser:

    Exclusives help put some of the dream back into the bottle and they are also a way to seduce retailers which are very much in demand of that kind of product.

  5. Marie Baronnet:

    We would put on the costumes and makeup, we'd do the hair and the lights, and then suddenly they would just know how to move, and they like that. I think there is a part of them where they are very exhibitionist. They like to show off and just dance and move and seduce men.
