The Scream of a Butterfly

One trick for getting a woman to like you is to take her shopping. If you can get her to have a few drinks before and after shopping you're guaranteed to get laid. Mathematically this would be expressed as "buying new boots" + "knocking back three martinis" = "knocking boots." What you don't want to do is give the woman a choice between shopping and sex.
Women on average say they would be willing to give up sex for 15 months for a closet full of new apparel, with 2 percent ready to abstain from sex for three years in exchange for new duds, according to a new survey of about 1,000 women in 10 U.S. cities.

Sixty-one percent of women polled said it would be worse to lose their favorite article of clothing than give up sex for a month.

If shopping and drinks doesn't get you laid, try germ warfare. Specifically, you want to kill off men.
A germ that kills males triggers a vicious cycle of increasing female promiscuity and male sexual exhaustion in a species of butterfly, scientists report.

The researchers expected that the fewer male butterflies there were, the less sex females likely would have with males. Surprisingly, female promiscuity actually rose.

"Greater numbers of female partners leads to fatigue in males. They start producing smaller sperm packages," Charlat said. "Unfortunately, the female butterflies instinctively know that the packages are smaller and that their chances of having been sufficiently impregnated after mating are lower than usual. This just makes them more rampant."
