Dita von Teese has developed a strategy to seduce men, she backs off and lets her ''victims'' come to her
Dita von Teese thinks the key to seducing men is to "know your victim".
The 37-year-old burlesque star is never "aggressive" when it comes to pursuing men, because it's easier to sit back and let them come to her.
The brunette beauty explained: "I don't have a technique for seducing men because they're all so different. You have to know your victim. It has always worked for me to let them come to me.
"I'm not very aggressive. I don't seduce and destroy. I like to be chased, but I'm not into playing hard to get."
Dita - who was married to goth rocker Marilyn Manson - also revealed she started dressing like a 1940s pin-up because she didn't feel attractive enough in jeans and a T-shirt.
She said in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "Part of the reason I style myself this way is because I never felt I could live up to what is typically shown to us as being sexy in mainstream culture. I never felt like a natural beauty or that I could be pretty without make-up.
"No matter what I do, I'm never going to look like someone like Gisele Bundchen. No matter what! So I like creating a fantasy and using glamour as my way of being sexy."
