Sexual intercourse is the greatest source of power there is or at least there was, until he heard about the Gem.

The only problem is that the only other person that might know where it is, is a stickler for rules and being good. Morgana is too innocent for his liking, and there's only one thing he can do to change that: corrupt her.
