In the early chapters the narrator implies that Wolf Larsen was quite attractive to women, that they would forget about morals and succumb to his charms. His romantic history is not mentioned in great detail. I keep wondering what kind of women Larsen would consider having sexual relationships with. He doesn't seem like the type who would pay for sex with a prostitute. What kind of women were available to him? Obviously, women like Maud Brewster were a bit out of reach for him.
