I think Mr. I Did Not Know," knew about Madam Folly because she was the talk of the town. He lingered about her house because he wanted to get a look at her, to see what sin was really like. I doubt very much that he planned to sin, or even wanted to initially, but he was looking for a thrill.
Incidentally, this is typical of many, especially the immature who try to get as close to the flame as possible without getting burned. I don’t know how many times I have heard young people ask, in effect, “How far can I go?” Any time we seek to learn what the rules are, solely to come as close to breaking them as we can, we are courting sin. That is what I believe this young man was doing. If I have gone too far in what I have suggested, you will at least have to agree that if he did not actively seek out Madam Folly, neither did he flee from her. Many of us may prefer to be pure, but would like to be propositioned first, before we say no.
