There is one thing that is quite possibly the kryptonite of all human beings. Red Lips.
There is sporadic evidence of why red lips attract the attention of humans. Ranging from the reasonable, like being just irresistable, to the overly technical; where it is linked to the arousal state of women genetalia.
