You should tell him about the word vamp. It works better than maniser.

Is there a phrase male vamp? I don't think so usless it's travésti. Vamp comes from vampire, but it acquired an additional meaning in 19th century British poetry. In a long narrative poem Cristobal (the may be the wrong spelling) by Coleridge, the main character is a female enchantress who sucks the life out of her men which leads them to their ruin.A few decades later, in American silent movies Theda Bara became the epitome of vamp, and she vamped her way through men in movies like A Fool There Was.Falling for her was worse than morphine addiction
Doña Sol en Sangre e Arena es un ejemplo de una vamp. Can you think of a male equivalent to Doña Sol? Maybe Don Juan.

Latey vamping has taken on a less fatal, but nevertheless man-eating meaning. I think vamp has origins in the biblical succubus. For some reason the incubus which is the male equivalent has fewer contemporary allusions.

Sangre y arena, by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, is the novel on which the movies by Niblo and Mamoulian are based.

A male vamp? I think it would be difficult. Un don Juan is another thing. It would be difficult due to our sex roles. It's the man who usually surrenders at women feet, not the other way out. That's why the corresponding male character is more the type of a conqueror than an enchanter. What do you think about it?

1. Sorry Sosia......I find it easy to use you in my examples.

2. What the heck is "hacerle la pelota"? That sounds sooooo (nasty?)

3. I will use esposa next time and I will say that you want to go play cards. Poker? Texas Hold 'Em? 5 card stud? 7 card stud? Strip poker?

4. Womanizer? Don Juan?

Well, I have some very funny friends that call that a "Papi Chulo".
