Newly engaged – to guitarist Rob Patterson, who will be her third husband – Carmen Electra is sharing some of her secrets on how a woman can attract a man.

First, be prepared. One way, Electra, 36, tells Cosmopolitan for its June issue, is to keep a "sexiness kit" within easy reach in the car or at work.

Contained therein: "Perfume, lip gloss, and a pair of heels" to show off the legs – to say nothing of an air of confidence. Her personal role model, Electra reveals: Ann-Margret, as she was in the 1962 movie Bye Bye Birdie.

In the same vein, Electra instructs, "Being flirty is a way of letting a guy know you're interested without making a fool of yourself."

Eye contact is key, as is touching – even if it's just removing a piece of lint off his clothing.

As for your own clothing, "Take a chance," she advises – and don't be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
