Men who lure…

There is a class of men whose mode of reliance upon which to engage females can best be described as “luring.”

For Arturo Martinez, a registered sex offender from Hesperia, California, the reason is self-apparent.


Scalp hardware apparently is permanent, or at least too much trouble to remove prior to booking…


A registered sex offender was arrested in Hesperia on suspicion of trying to lure women, including a minor, to his home under false pretenses.

Around 1:17 p.m. Thursday, San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies from Hesperia contacted Arturo Martinez at his home located in the 7600 block of Corona Avenue.

Deputies arrived at his home after receiving numerous complaints from women, including a 17-year-old girl, who said he tried to lure her to his home.

Authorities said Martinez would solicit women through social media and website services using a fake name and disguised his voice by making it sound like a woman’s. He also solicited women through babysitting, cleaning, taxi, real estate and delivery services, authorities said.


Amazingly, Martinez chose not to rely on his boyish good looks and Christian demeanor to meet women.

Men like this must “lure.”

But luring is not the default method for dangerous and deadly men only;  the harmless, hapless nerds and incels resort to a mundane sort of “emotional luring” in order to hook unwilling women.  Luring is disingenuous coupling of any sort, but I suppose it can be argued that the entire mating dance and ritual, for both men and women, is built on a foundation of luring.

For some of us, due to innate physical and social disqualifications, the “lure” is more egregious and obvious, bordering on the caricature.
