As defined by Lenny Bruce
, the art of using the traditional means of male-to-female seduction
between men for nonsexual purposes. Gambits such as prolonged eye contact
, the bestowal of small attentions
, such as lighting cigarettes
, small familiarities, even light touches on hands and shoulders, all can be used. The main strategy
is to be (or appear to be) so fascinated by the other person
that nothing else in the universe
seems to matter.
It's amazing how far you can go with this without the other person catching on...and, quite often, you will get the favor you wanted.
