honey trap

honey trap

1. An attraction, location, or sight designed to entice people to visit it, especially for monetary gain; a tourist trap. Even though I've lived in New York City for 10 years, I've never visited the Statue of Liberty. It's just a big honey trap, in my opinion.
2. The use of an attractive person, especially a woman, to extract information from someone by means of seduction. Though it feels a little demeaning, I know that being used as a honey trap against the mafia leader is for the greater good.
