Confused about this kanji 乃 which is the alternate の. When i learn a new kanji i go to wiki to check for a basic meaning of the word. i understand it comes from a pregnant woman and it can be written as the "no" hiragana. However with any kanji i also search it on google images and find images of seductive woman everywhere. so i wonder why the kanji itself can relate to that,perhaps its probably used in some sexual way?
