Man Makeovers: 6 Ways to Make Mr. Right Even Better

6. Improve his bedroom moves

Men aren't born with road maps of the female body and hate it when you come off like a drill sergeant. Piane puts it plainly, "Don't castrate a guy when he's naked with a hard-on." Show him what you like with words and gestures. In bed, moan with joy when he accidentally hits a hot spot. Out of bed, say, "It felt amazing when you did this but when you did that it hurt just a little. So can we try this again? It was really spectacular." The key is to be playful, not punitive.

The bottom line, according to Piane, is to have reasonable expectations. He isn't actually a white knight, but instead a mere mortal with a penis. It's not his job to make you happy 24 hours a day. Take care of yourself and appreciate him and every little thing he does to please you. Odds are, you'll be rewarded tenfold

Now that you know what techniques will work on him, here are the surefire failures:

1. Nagging

Piane suggests, "Call your girlfriend and rant to your heart's content about your bozo boyfriend's thoughtlessness. Or write out your disappointment." Don't nag him. Odds are, your bad mood is due more to your own insecurities than anything your guy has done -- or not done.

2. Holding grudges

Okay, he accidentally threw out your favorite blouse -- seven months ago. Get over it.
