If I nearly died 2 days, or even two years ago, I'm pretty sure I'd remember it so I didn't repeat what nearly got me killed. Much less, deliberately set someone else up for the same thing. Which is why I called it duplicitous.
Teddy is deliberately selling these guys a false bill of goods. They've been lead to believe they're hooking up with him, not knowing he's setting them up for someone else because he's purposely withholding that from them. Even if they go along with it when he finally springs the truth on them, all they'll see is a hot blonde. They won't suspect that she's a succubus who can suck out their souls and kill them with only a kiss.
That's borders on being outright villainous
, because you're basically saying he's willing to overlook that, or that he's forgotten it for the sake of helping Chloe.
It's possibly even worse since with the pheromones in play even if the the situation were fully explained, with all the potential danger therein, I don't know that any of them would / could say no.
At this point I'm kind of hoping the succubus blood / reaper ectoplasm double whammy is messing with Teddy, and he does descend into full cackling villainy (this strip even had what could be considered a monologue), so that if / when it gets removed and Teddy classic returns there will be a clear delineation between the two. If not I don't know how Teddy goes back to being the "hero" after all this. We're a far cry from the plucky underdog with a heart of gold and a passion for clocks we were first introduced to.

I had considered that might be the case and it was all a bluff to shut Pandora up / mess with her. But I think at this point we are supposed to assume Teddy is being honest.

I don't think it was outright stated, but my assumption was that Teddy uses it for hygiene (possibly to aid with the "doing myself" mental separation too), and put it on for Pandora to give the full effect. *Edit* Ninja'd
