Roller coasters: wooden or steel?
Neither. I hate roller coasters. I used to like them as a kid, but the older I’ve gotten, they freak me out.

What turns you on?
Confident people.

What turns you off?
A nasty disposition.

What’s your idea of a romantic getaway?
Bright lights, big city. A night in New York. Loud music, being around people having a good time. Being able to get lost in the situation.

What’s the strangest place you’ve ever had sex?
Do I really have to tell you that? My mom’s not going to be reading this, I hope. The bathroom at the supermarket. Mind you, I was 19.

Define good in bed.
Aggressive, fearless.

Can men fake it? Should they?
I’m sure they can. It doesn’t apply to me — I’m a gold-star lesbian. Should they? I have before, so sure.

Name two people you don’t ever want to picture having sex.
Julia Child and any man.

What’s your favorite late-night eats?
Pizza. With cheese, mushrooms and green peppers.
