Issue 18 | Autumn 2011
by Julie Bourgeois
Not so long ago, I really didn’t feel like having a girlfriend. But recently, I’ve been feeling like I wanted to have one. I think I’m finally ready. I was wondering if you could give me a few seduction tips to get girls interested in me. (Kevin, 14 years old)

My problem is that at school, there’s this guy Simon. Every time I see him, I can’t stop smiling, my heart beats really fast and I blush. I’ve never talked to him and the fact that he doesn’t even know I’m alive makes me very sad. I’ve tried everything: smiling at him, walking in front of him, but it’s like I’m invisible. What can I do to have him notice me and be interested in me?
(Alexandra, 14 years old)
These adolescents’ questions reveal their lack of knowledge about seduction and their clumsiness in this area. In your opinion, what tips are they looking for? How can they learn to use charm at their age? Are peers and the media the only sources of information about this topic? Do you think we need to give young people information and guidance when it comes to seduction, given the media hype where sexual seduction is often at the forefront? What role can you play in the ‘seducation’ of youth?
