These -- lotus eaters, sirens, cyclops, scylla and charybdis -- could represent people of different cultures and those with strange or anti-social habits. How about drug addicts, prostitutes, etc.?
Our news media shows men like Tiger Woods being tempted by "sirens."
MC -- use YOUR imagination for the rest.
