...seduction represents mastery over the symbolic universe, while power represents only mastery of the real universe.

The capacity immanent to seduction to deny things their truth and turn it into a game, the pure play of appearances, and thereby foil all systems of power and meaning with a mere turn of the hand. The ability to turn appearances in on themselves, to play on the body's appearances, rather than with the depths of desire. Now all appearances are reversible...only at the level of appearances are systems fragile and vulnerable..meaning is vulnerable only to enchantment.
