In this essay, we reflect on myths in general to distinguish between myths versus contradicting myths and owned myths versus attributed myths. From this standpoint the so-called "endless seduction myth" is analysed, in that sense of trying to encompass both the male and female charmers, as well as to get a glimpse of the relationships among different cultures. This is closely related to attributed myths, which often happen when a culture dominates another, or it could happen the other way around. That is, it could be a measure of defence or an adaptation against pressure, as in the case of the well-known "cargo cults". At the same time, we take note of the myths of "Carmen" and "Don Juan" as being complementary and mutually dependent. In this essay, we may also find reflections on how different cultures treat feelings such as guilt and sentiments of omnipotence or the opposite, helplessness.
