Get the Red Button mug.
The ubearable attraction to a dangerous/alluring object or situation. Very close to a drug addiction.

Applies to: sex, cliff-jumping, large red buttons that say "Do Not Push", hot girls bent over searching though their bags, stealing, etc.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
