Warning – Honey Traps!

Updated: Jul 25, 2021

Warning – Honey Traps!!! Honey Traps are a spy and criminal tactic that has been around for as long as humans have, but still people, usually men, end up getting entrapped, extorted, kidnapped or murdered. The trap is simple, usually a woman provides or promises a man sexual favors used to blackmail him or to lure him to a location to be killed or kidnapped, etc… The threat is that prevalent that in May 2018 the British Security Service MI5 distributed the “The Smart Traveler” booklet to help protect UK businessmen from honey traps, substance misuse and other entrapment tactics while doing business abroad.

Now think about it: which of the guys you know would say “NO” to an afternoon of sexual games with two attractive young women if you offered it as a gift? Not many, I expect, well I know for a fact… Such a gift can be easily arranged. You just need two female (or male) prostitutes, a hotel room or better still an apartment or an Airbnb these days. Apartments give more privacy and can be easier to rig cameras in… Then the target’s afternoon of sexual ecstasy will quickly turn into a nightmare for their foreseeable future…

Recent Examples of Honey Traps

  1. November 2018: Rajeshwar Udani, a 57 year old diamond trader from Mumbai was kidnapped and murdered after he was lured into a car by a 20 year old young lady who he had been chatting with online.

  2. October 2018: Nishant Agarwal an engineer with India’s BrahMos Aerospace was arrested for passing on sensitive information to suspected Pakistani ISI agents after being honey-trapped online.

  3. May 2018: Two former French Intelligence Agents Henri M., 71, and Pierre-Marie H., 66, were arrested for passing “information detrimental to fundamental national interests” to a foreign power in what was classed as a “Chinese Honey Trap”.

Honey traps happen all the time and have since men’s dicks controlled their brains, so forever. At the low end of the scale, the hot chick will promise a night of debauchery but will just take her target to a shady hotel room or apartment where they can be beaten, robbed and maybe raped by her waiting accomplices. At a higher level, a more intricate honey trap can go on for an extended period of time until the target believes it’s some form of relationship, of course, the sex – the more deviant the better – would be videoed and then used to blackmail them for business favors or hard currency.

A common criminal tactic is to pimp out a girl or boy who looks of the legal consenting age for sex and then claim after the sex has taken place, they are underage. That way they have a lot of leverage on the unfortunate and stupid gent who has, unknowingly, possibly committed a serious criminal act: sex with a minor.

If you have wealth, a business, a family, access to valuable information or anything worth losing, you need to be very careful, and don’t go having sex with convenient strangers to start with… Unless of course you have verified copies of their identification papers and passports… Best advice I can give is, if you must have illicit sex, then only do so with those you know have more to lose than you do…
