How can I tell if my Betta's a boy or girl?

When I bought my Betta, it was a spur of the moment thing. I didn't know anything about them. So now I can't tell what their sex is!!! Can anyone help me out? :(

There are short-finned male bettas as well. Finnage is really not the best way to tell a bettas gender.
