1. Do you prefer your lover:
a) fresh from the bath and perfumed?
b) fresh from the bath without perfume?
c) clean but not right from the tub or shower?
d) slightly sweaty (or musky)?

I prefer b) – there’s nothing hotter than fresh out of the shower, smelling clean. In the shower is just as good – sex in the shower followed by sex out of the shower is always great.

2. Do you maintain your body for sex with respect to facial hair, body hair, pubic hair, fingernails or toenails?
Well, mostly. I have no facial hair or body hair to speak of, really. I do try and keep my head hair colored and brushed, and I do keep my legs shaved. I typically go “bare down there” and shave as needed. My fingernails aren’t the best cared for, but they’re slightly long for scratching, and I do like keeping my toenails painted.

3. Do you maintain/prepare according to your lover’s preferences?
Sometimes. He doesn’t really have a big preference for how I keep myself – for him, the most important thing is that I want to fuck. But, if there’s something he’d like me to do/try, I’m more than happy to.

4. Do you have body adornments such as piercings or tattoos for sexual reasons? Does your lover?
I don’t have any for sexual reasons…yet. Right now all I have is my ears pierced, but I am contemplating getting a VCH. I’ve also been toying with getting a tattoo on my lower back, but I haven’t quite figured out what I want it to be yet. Possibly handcuffs and butterflies.

5. Do you choose any cosmetics, lubes, condoms or other sexually relevant items according to how they taste? Do you not use them because of the taste?
Lubes, yes. I like flavored edible lube, but I have to be careful of the ingredients and I don’t like an overpowering flavor.  I prefer lube that’s tasteless and scentless more than anything. I’ve never used a condom, so I don’t know if I’d like the flavored ones or not, and I don’t choose cosmetics for scent or flavor either.

6. Is there a taste or aroma that turns you on or that you can use to turn on your lover?
Hmmm…that’s tough. I love the scent of vanilla, oranges, cinnamon, and strawberries, and those can often turn me on.

Bonus: Do you prepare a room for sex–mood music, candles, scent, cleaning it or anything? Tell us about it.
We don’t do this all the time, but I do like dimming the lights and setting out scented candles. I also like to get in the mood sometimes with a massage, and it’s especially nice when the scent of the oil matches or mixes with the candles (orange massage oil and vanilla candles is particularly nice). We often have porn on, so usually not music, and if it’s a particularly frisky night we may change the cover on the Esse and lay out the toys we’re going to use.
