Sophia Loren, Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich... The sirens of the golden age of Hollywood cinema knew a thing or two about seduction. It wasn’t only in the movies that they could twist a man around their little finger with one flicker of their impossibly long lashes. To get to their level of seduction, try our tips, inspired by old-style glamour.
Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful (Sophia Loren).
You can spend hours on hair, make-up and choosing the perfect piece of lingerie. If doing all those things makes you feel gorgeous, then go for it! If it makes you feel itchy and uncomfortable, there is no lingerie in the world that will change that to sexy! When you’re selecting sexy lingerie, it’s not for your partner, it’s for you. Choose something you love, whether that’s a simple white panty or an intricate bondage-inspired piece, and you’ll look as sexy as you feel.
When I’m good, I’m very good. But when I’m bad, I’m better (Mae West).
Don’t be afraid to take charge. Helplessly fluttering your lashes may be sweet, but it’s not sexy. Be bold, and forward. There’s nothing wrong with teasing, if that’s your style. There’s nothing wrong with waiting for your partner to make the first move, if that’s your preference. The key is to do what you want to do. If you’re happy to lie back and patiently await attention, then let that work for you. If it’s more your style to take your pleasure yourself, by all means kiss them first. The key is that if you’re doing it your way, you’ll be confident, and confidence is very, very sexy.
I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure (Mae West).
Be adventurous. You are a sexy siren! You can do anything you want and wear anything you want! But how do you know what you want if you’ve never tried it? Every occasion for seduction is a chance for a new adventure. Do you always kiss first? Try putting your lover in charge for a change. Do you like to do it in the dark? Let the light in and try out some new lingerie.
I’ve never really thought of myself as a sex goddess, more a comedienne who could dance (Rita Hayworth).
Play to your strengths! Whether that’s your sparkling wit, your gorgeous hair (think Veronica Lake...), your ample assets, or your sultry voice, use it to express your desires. If you can make someone laugh, you’re halfway to winning their heart, we promise.
