: : can any1 tell me the meaning and/or origin of the phrase honey trap

: I haven't found anything on "honey trap."

: "Honey bucket," "honey hole," "honey pit" and "honey wagon" all have to do with the disposal of human waste. Since we're on the subject of honey.

Honey pot - the external female sexual organs. From "Oxford Dictionary of Modern Slang" by John Ayto and John Simpson (Oxford University Press, Oxford & New York, 1996).

So, the way I see it, we have three ways we can go on "honey trap." Excrement, sex or an actual device to get honey from the bees. What is the context of the phrase "honey trap"? How have you heard it used?
