I pulled the phrase “irresistible to women” (as in “women can’t resist him”) from a current magazine and reclaimed the phrase.  (Basically I believe women can have “irresistible pulls” that are non-romantic in nature, for example a pull towards science!)  The text I have redacted is the 1829 piece “Curiosity: A Poem.”
