What I Do, Job-wise: Sex writer and science festival co-curator
What I Do, Fun-wise: Gardening, knitting, reading, writing, geeky events, cabaret, cocktail making/drinking, and blogging (I created the UK's original erotica site for women, cliterati, blog about gardening at groweatgift.com, feminism at badfeminist.co.uk and arts/science at forestofthoughts.co.uk).
My Motto: Don't dream it. Be it.
My Anti-Motto: Nice guys finish last.
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Michael J Fox
My “celebs to make out with” list: I'm monogamous to my partner even in my fantasies nowadays (a few faceless people aside, obv) but Katy Perry, Megan Fox and Christina Ricci would all be great company if I became single and was looking for consolation – and Mr Bruce from the Correspondents would definitely be invited along for music, dancing and additional entertainment. Is it too greedy to add Coco De Ville (a stunning and talented burlesque goddess), Mat Fraser (the man with the sexiest voice in the world – and a talent for hands-free windmilling) and Buck Angel (oh, those muscles) too? No one said monogamy is easy...
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: Washington Square, The Correspondents
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: How to Roast a Pig – my partner's book which is due for publication next year. It is, as the name suggests, about roasting pig to perfection and made me very hungry indeed.
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: My correspondent heels – they go with everything
Beauty Products That I Hoard: Anything with neroli in it
I smell like: Cigarettes, more often than I should.
I Have Faked An Orgasm(yes/no): Yes – for a magazine feature on whether men can tell if you fake (no. But I still don't fake it in real life – what's the point?) I've done a lot of things for magazine features: pony play; spending a day with a pro-Domme; going to a naked disco; having my genitals cast internally, externally and while having sex. Faking it seems mild by comparison.
