process of enticing a person, to engage in sexual behaviour

Seduction is to convince someone to do something which he or she did not want to do at the start.[1] It can also mean convincing the person to do something he or she ought not to do (such as acting against a rule). Most commonly the term is used to convince another person to have a sexual relationship.
