Delilah

Delilah comes from the Old Testament and she was one who lured a bait on poor Samson after offering him her bed and got hold of the secret as to what is Samson’s strength. Since his strength was in his hair she had it cut off. As an idiom it means succumbing to the evil designs of a seductress.

Examples: There are many Delilahs in today’s society out to plague you with their wile charms.
