** They were however, pretty successful in targeting the secretaries, wives and daughters of Western officials and personnel. Women who would have access to information. They were curiously, unable to repeat the success to the same level against male aides of such people. The fact that women are more susciptable to traps of this kind (contarary to popular and convnetional views) has also been noted by other agencies.
*** The best theory is that women are usually on their guard againt men hitting on them, so once an agent managed to get past that, something which was an easy thing for a trained agent (or you know, anyone who behaves respectfully and reasonably) they were a lot more open. While in the case of men, the fact that a girl, well out of their league was paying them such rapt attention raised alarm bells.

* Shows up constantly in ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka''. In this setting, it seems as if half of all teenage girls have tried at least once to get somebody in a compromising position, usually for money, and the attempts are usually successful. Taking that for granted, the series experiments with motivation and choice of target, from MeanGirls blackmailing equally shady adults to Urumi in her introduction staging a molestation scene and running for the police (played for laughs; her victim's just very upset by this and she wasn't ''really'' trying to hurt him) to vigilantes trying to see who they can convince to "cross the line" and become an acceptable target for physical brutalization.

* In ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'', a junior DeltaGreen agent tried to gather information on David by having his crush seduce him. He turned her down, saying she was either lying or too {{tsundere}} for his liking.

* The KGB and Stasi used this method, infact the KGB even had a special school of seduction (or so the rumour went) to train agents.Well, they tried to use this method anyway. With mixed results. For instance
**Sometimes the targets gleefully enjoyed the, errr "ministrations" of the ladies in question while not giving up secrets. Often people who were warned. Or did not have as much information as thought.

***One alternative theory is that the reason this has been observed is since men were speifically warned about the chances of this happening while the women were not.

* In the 1983 Australian mini-series ''Scales of Justice'' a notorious crime boss arranges for one of his escort girls to become the secretary of a (married) politician who is campaigning against him. The two have an affair, and it's revealed that photographs were taken of the event. The crime boss doesn't bother sending the photos to the politican; he simply walks past him at a public event with the girl on his arm. The series ends on the politician's shocked expression.
