There is pretty much an instruction book/blog post for everything these days. And I ran across an interesting article today on Gawker titled: Nabbing
a Fleet Week Sailor: A How-To Guide

This is not the man you're going to marry, just a fun little fling. He's a knight that comes in his own shining armor. In fact, that all-white get-up is so shining, it's often blinding, making one sailor hard to tell from the next. And that's fine. You don't need to be picky. Just about any sailor will do.
Uh... "Will do" what?
Be a Lady: We hate to break it to the gay guys, but most of the sailors are going to be of the heterosexual persuasion. It's still kind of against the rules for gay men to serve openly and it's just the law of averages that the majority will be hunting for lady tail (and for those that are heteroflexible, they've been beating off with bunk mates for months, so it's time to flex their hetero muscles). Yes, the ladies definitely make out in this equation. For the single sailor who has been out at sea without a real live woman to look at for months, it's going to be like a starving man at an all-you-can-eat buffet. Basically all you have to do is show up with the right parts and you should be good.
And that is the tip of the Iceberg, the rest is entertaining reading if nothing else... Personally I think she is working too hard at this... usually DRINK + GIRL works just fine no?
