“Looking down at my bodice, the fool relaxes. Are men truly such idiots that they cannot resist two orbs of flesh?” From Grave Mercy by Robin LeFevers. A fantasy novel about a female assassin.
The assassin got it wrong. It is true that men can’t resist but not for the expected reason that we are letting our second brain dominate us. It is just that we do not see women as dangerous. If women are not a danger to us then it is OK to succumb to the temptations of the "two orbs of flesh."
This idea of judging a situation by danger goes back a long way in human history.
