Reviewed By Michael Smith OK, so you don't have Brad Pitt's abs. Or Donald Trump's bucks. Still, you'd like to exude the same kind of powerful sex appeal. Here are tips from Barbara Biggs, PhD, a Los Angeles therapist who specializes in sex therapy and sexuality issues, on how to be more irresistible to women.

  • Do your best to read signals and choose the woman who's most likely to be attracted to you in the first place.
  • Take a look at your best assets and put them forward, whatever they are. If you have a good sense of humor, show it. If you're good at a sport, let her see you playing.
  • Women are turned on by a man's energy and vigor, so talk about things you're excited about -- whether it's the L.A. Lakers or your new job.
  • If you're tuned in to her and give her positive feedback, she'll feel more attracted in return. Notice what kinds of movies she likes, what she likes to eat, what things are important to her. Sprinkle your conversation with comments like "I think so, too." It shows you're listening -- and really listening to someone is very sexy.
