​THAT'S WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW! You know one thing that really separates human animals from other animals? We don't have sex in public. We're ashamed of it, we drape our bodies with coverings (clothes). Don't even get me started with the mass phobia surrounding the female nipple. All my international readers (20 percent) chuckle over the uptight attitudes of my U.S. readers (80 percent). Our country is so conflicted -- I tend to think Americans are very conservative, and then I'll catch something on TV and am amazed at how raunchy it is, complete trash. I'm practically embarrassed to see what's on TV, that's why I don't have one.

Who's your biggest hero?

"Well-behaved women rarely make history." I love Annie Sprinkle, Belladonna, Tristan Taormino, Nina Hartley and Susie Bright. I love women who show off their cervix on stage or celebrate anal fisting. I also have a nonsexual crush on John Waters -- he is all about rejoicing in filth, trash and shock culture. And I love Jane Goodall and Mister Rogers -- they are two of the best people ever to grace this planet. They epitomize empathy and peace and realize that love is the most important thing in the world.

Where'd you grow up? What got you from there to here?

I grew up in Creve Coeur and have lived in just about every area in St. Louis since my parents kicked me out at the age of eighteen. I don't know why I'm so progressive -- my mom and two sisters are all traditionally monogamous-minded. So are my dad and two brothers, for that matter. I am out to them, they accept me for the most part, though they often unfriend or unfollow me on Facebook or Twitter when things get a little too interesting.

The appeal of ribbed condoms. Discuss.

Completely superfluous, a marketing gimmick. Women cannot feel the ribs. I had one guy friend tell me, "I'm going to wear ribbed condoms inside out so they're for MY pleasure." Very funny, playa. Now ribs and bumps on glass dildos -- THAT'S some worthwhile sensation.

Neil Diamond, Neil Young or Neil Patrick Harris?

Neil Young. Every time I hear that "Harvest Moon" song, I imagine two courting mice on a little raft gently drifting down a moonlit stream.

Anything else?

TBK 3.0 launches this week. I eschew silly sex-blog trends like "Half Naked Thursday." I'm writing an e-book called The Book of Goddess: Elevating Your Desirability to Mythic Proportions. Tip for men: Women don't appreciate random cock shots. Tip for women: If you wear tights all day and have a date that night, wash your vagina.

Word.
