dangerous to women

   adept at seduction
   The expression does not necessarily imply rape:
    'Is Morny dangerous to women?' 'Don't be Victorian, old top. Women don't call it danger.' (Chandler, 1943)
   Lady Caroline Lamb implied as much of Lord Byron when she confided to her journal that he was 'Mad, bad, and dangerous to know'.
