I was going to write about how we ended up talking about how to mention blowjobs in sign language at college today... but then I saw that TMI Tuesday's actually about sex this time around. About time too. So let's crack on with this...
1. What sexual act arouses you the most? For that matter, what nonsexual act arouses you the most?
Delivering orgasm via oral sex is definitely a turn-on for me. I love the sight, sound and feel of the female orgasm - and the knowledge that I've delivered it with only my tongue and patience makes me feel ready any time, anywhere.
Non-sexually, it's being tired. And also the act of stretching after sitting down for a long period almost always makes me hard. It may not be a turn-on, but it's an interesting curio. And the aroma of patchouli, for an olfactory stimulus. Dancing sometimes turns me on too... seriously, more people are turned on by dancing than you think. It's often apparent on Tim Booth and he dances a lot.
2. What is your signature or “go to” move that is sure to get a lover in the mood for sex?
A kiss on the neck. It almost always leads to something even if it's not sex.
I used to kiss girls on the hand, or the shoulder, when I was at university. They were always friendly kisses, of course. But for a lover it's almost always the neck that I go for if I would like some sex.
3. Do you queef?
What? Me? I've got a penis. I don't think it's physically possible.
4. What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to YOU as a result of your sex writings (e.g., blog, erotica, sex toy reviews)?
Loads of things. Being invited to review a sex documentary and ending up drinking with a group of people in a private club will always be an enduring memory. Being asked to review hardcore porn and breaking my DVD drive as a result. And, of course, getting two girlfriends out of it... that's odd too.
Needless to say, without writing ILB, my life would be in a very different place by now.
5. Have you ever had sex while someone watched?
…someone else was in the room?
…someone else in the bed, next to you and the person you’re having sex with?
No. No. And no. Sorry, I'm boring!
6. When it comes to sex, and discussing it with your teen have you or would you:
a. Let school sex education handle it
b. Hand the teen a book or point them to a website
c. Talk frankly and openly
d. Avoid it altogether–society, friends, and the internet will give all the info needed
I don't have a teen and I've never been asked by a teen about sex so I can't answer this question. But hypothetically, I'll go for C - I'd try not to let on that I know too much about the subject, though...!
Bonus: Remember the song "I’m Too Sexy?" What are you too sexy for?
I actually own the album with this song on it - Up, by Right Said Fred. It's an incredible album and if you can seek it out, listen to it. Seriously, it's got some great stuff on it.
In any case, I've performed "I'm Too Sexy" live before - during a pantomime I wrote for my family, in which I played both Father Christmas and a twisted version of him, Evil Santa. My original plan was to wear a skintight catsuit, but I couldn't find one in the dressing-up box. So I just played the part in my normal clothes. But I sang it anyway. Maybe I'm actually too sexy for clothes at all. Yeah, I'll go with that.
