#4. The art of the call:
Liberated ladies, take note!
• Time your call appropriately, preferably between the hours of 11 PM and 2 AM. Timing is the key to not appearing desperate, sitting at home with nothing better to do. A call between 11 PM and 2 AM signals to the recipient that while you have a very full social calendar you are still interested enough to squeeze in a quick one-on-one rendezvous.
• Drunken dialing is not recommended. Manage morning after disappointment and regret by making this decision with as clear a head as possible. A little liquid courage is ok (aren't we all more hilarious and irresistible after a couple of cocktails?), but please don't get too messy.
• Be direct, guys love that. However flirty or forward you choose to be, being upfront about what you're looking for means no surprises.
• Be prepared. Depending on him to secure contraceptives? Puh-leeze! Even the tiniest clutch can accommodate a condom.

#5. When, and how, to decline -- and deal with rejection:
In an ideal world, you'd only be getting booty calls from gorgeous, successful, funny, muscled men. In the real world, there is the chance of being propositioned by someone you find less than desirable. If, or when, you do get a late-night inquiry from someone you're not interested in, it's best to nip the situation in the bud with a speedy reply that clearly declines the offer. If you don't want to crush his soul, tell him you're flattered, that he's a good friend but you're not attracted to him in that way. If ‘as if!' is more your attitude, a straight up ‘No way, never, no!' will surely scare him off for good. Not replying at all may seem like the best solution, but making him get the message isn't as easy as deleting one from your voice mail or inbox.

If you're on the receiving end of a booty call smack down, don't despair. So what if one guy, for whatever reason, wasn't into it? There are plenty of single men out there more than willing to show up at your door for an after-hours romp, so move on! Channel your inner Madonna and use your sexy self-confidence on the next unsuspecting male in your midst.
