Who are Aphrodisian Women?

Aphrodisian women embody the archetype of a seductress, best represented by the goddess Aphrodite of ancient Greek mythology. 

Aphrodite’s daughters are found in all cultures throughout history; they can be conventionally attractive or not; what they all have in common is their innate seductive charisma.

Understanding your archetype as an Aphrodisian woman is an invaluable guide on your journey toward healthy relationships and self-actualization.

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung proposed that we are all patterned on a particular archetype or prototype, meaning the original model. Archetypes are similar across all cultures. We do not choose our archetype; we are born with it.  No two Aphrodisian women are exact replicas, but our Aphrodite archetype directs our way of being in the world.

The beauty and sexuality of Aphrodisian Women place them in the spotlight. Even the most wealthy and powerful men fall over themselves to be noticed by them. Many would say they have it all...  But their beauty and sexuality most often wreak devastation in their relationships with men.

As muses, Aphrodisian women inspire poets, writers, and artists – and even finance bros.

They are the most photographed women. Their seductiveness lures us to live beyond the banal, compelling us to buy luxury cars, makeup, and lingerie and inviting us to adventure. It makes sense for Aphrodisian Women to employ their gifts and reap the rewards.

AW are vividly powerful presences, commanding attention wherever they go. Particularly prone to the pursuit of seduction, no matter their role, they possess the fundamental nature and traits of Aphrodite, a signature being her beauty. Her face, her body, and the way she moves are all sources of her beauty. AW have an innate ability to embellish their appearance, adding value to those they accompany.

Many parents with stunningly beautiful daughters neglect to emphasize the importance of long-term self-reliance. In fact, focusing on vanity is often encouraged by such parents. As the young Aphrodite grows up, she often expects to be rewarded for her eroticism.

In pop culture, AW are often negatively labeled as “femme fatale,” “pick-me girls,” or “cool girls.” Cultural narratives diminish the value of their seductive powers to modern male fantasy, and they are maligned for constantly performing for the male gaze. 

The powerful presence that commands attention wherever they go is both positive and negative. They are granted entre to male-dominated atmospheres (poker games, boy's nights, sports games, tailgating, Formula One, cigar lounges, strip clubs) that many less seductive women aren’t.

From the misogynist's point of view, she is nothing more than arm candy.

The Aphrodite Archetype is demonized and Aphrodisian women are chastised for the power of their beauty, sexuality, and seductivity. Many women loathe her.

How dare she be hot, and funny, eat fast food, play sports, and not be intimidated by men? Many, even those who claim to be for women’s empowerment, rebuke her.

In a conservative society, AW  is ruthlessly slut-shamed. Alpha males relentlessly and lavishly seek out Aphrodisian Women as status symbols, but they don’t truly respect them. Rather than building an intimate connection, they prefer to show these women off like a new Ferrari. 

Much like many other women, patriarchal men are deeply threatened by AW. Insecure men and women dogpile AW to preserve their personal self-worth.

Although AW circulate the male domain, when they seek true love, they are betrayed and humiliated by those who professed undying adoration.
