Potiphar’s Wife

Joseph in the Old Testament was sold by his brothers to the Egyptians and he became employed in the household of Potiphar. Potiphar’s wife was sexually attracted to Joseph and asked him to bed with her. But he adamantly refused. As an idiom Potiphar’s wife means a seductress.

Example: There are many Potiphar’s wives in society.
