A stepmother disguises herself and offers an apple with a tempting voice. Snow White bites into an apple like Adam and falls into a deep sleep. She is placed in a glass coffin until a prince abducts her. In fairytales a tempter is perceived in two extreme poles such as a devil and a savior.

Please draw or describe a scene of temptation and/or seduction which really happened or is in your own fantasies.
