Let's face it: seducing guys ain't that hard. A little cleavage and some footsie is pretty much all it takes. The challenge is making your moves really memorable. What follows are seven classic approaches to seduction that you can make your own -- and have fun doing it.
1) The Detective: It's the quintessential seduction technique: Show up at his door in a trench coat, heels and not much else. It's a bold move that takes nerve and confidence. But before you bust it out, just be sure 1) he's home, 2) he doesn't have company, and 3) you've got a backup outfit in your purse in case of emergencies. And don't feel obligated to wear the traditional lace garter-belt ensemble underneath. An oversized "Go Mets!" T-shirt, especially if he's a fan, might work just as well.

2) The Anaïs Nin: In an email, text or--get this--a handwritten lust note (yes, they still make nice pens), tell him what you want to do to him right now in great graphic detail, preferably sent to him when he's in the middle of an important business meeting. This also works whispered in his ear in the middle of a crowded party, a movie theater, or a restaurant.
3) The Centerfold: No need to have bleach blonde hair, fake boobs or access to an airbrush. A softly lit digital pic taken from a flattering angle will do the trick. Send him one on your camera phone, leave one in his briefcase, or slip one under his pillow, etc. When you take it yourself, you can art direct so as to leave something (including your identity) to the imagination.

4) The Miss Independence: Guys can't resist a challenge, and what's more challenging than a woman who doesn't need a man? Make your own money, have strong opinions, know how to change a tire--and then if you stick around he'll know it must be because you love him (well, that, and he must be a stallion in bed). Warning: will not work on old-fashioned meatheads who believe women are weak (both physically and mentally) and need to be taken care of.
