(Pronounced Kah-vor-kah) The Kavorka is a word which originated from the Latvian Orthodox. It means "the lure of the animal". It is described as a curse, making someone irresistible to anyone of the opposite sex, even attractive to the same sex, as people will be naturally drawn to you. It's a heavy responsibility to have to be imposed with everyone's lusty wants, hence, it's consideration as a curse. People will want to be with you, be like you, be you.
It has been made famous by an episode of the sitcom, Seinfeld. In this episode, called "The Conversion", Kramer discovers he is affected by the Kavorka, he solves this by some religious ceremony, which results in him having a terrible odor, thus, being unattractive to women. This 'breaks' the curse.
