Delilah syndrome:

A behavioral pattern of promiscuity in a woman motivated by a desire to control and manipulate men and render them weak and helpless. The term is borrowed from the the Old Testament (Judges 16) in which Delilah betrays her lover , Samson, to the Philistines by cutting off his hair thus depriving him of his strength.

Quote: Cleo Borden (Mae West) staging an opera in Goin' to Town (1935): ' I'm gonna sing Delilah . I've got a lot of respect for that dame . There's one lady barber that made good .'
