Women get a bad rep for being manipulative. That's because many of us just aren't doing it right -- fluttering eyelashes, faking headaches, clumsily undoing your top buttons to avoid a speeding ticket ...only to reveal the top three inches of your greying, bottom-of-the-drawer granny bra.
The trick is to embrace the art. Go for it. Don't worry if it niggles at your inner-Germaine Greer, it's all in a good cause -- you. And if done correctly, your boyfriend or husband will be none the wiser.
