For the soft romantic love scene, I would choose Santana's and Rob Thomas' "Smooth."

For the torrid, earthrocking, mad and passionate love scene, that's easy. It would be Stone Temple Pilots' "Sex Type Thing."

Ok, just for the sake of expediency; here are questions two through five.

Question2: What is more important to you personally in a relationship; a long term relationship, physical or mental attraction? Explain the reason. You can answer outside of the box here, if you feel the need or desire to do so.

Question 3: Plan a dinner party, invite 6-12 people from history, recent or long since passed. Name those people, and what the main course would be. If you feel like going through the effort tell me how you would seat them.

Question 4: I know a woman who has a saying; “If a man were a comma I would marry him”. I have my own; “If a woman were a sentence fragment I would marry her”. What form of punctuation would you marry if it were a man/woman? Tell me why as well.

Question 5: Ask me a question, no holds barred. I may not answer the question; probably won’t, but that isn’t the point.

I would suggest "Tiny Dancer" by Sir Elton John.

Physical attraction is important as well as the mental attraction. The mental attraction is more stimulating for the mind and keeping ones interests in the forefront is very important. Physical attraction is important in order to keep the sex life active and interesting. Seems to me if we have the full circle of trust, security, happiness, honesty and love, relationships have pretty good chances of surviving.

Mental attraction. If you turn my mind on...the rest will follow. If I find you mentally attractive, you're going to automatically look good to me. Sure physical attraction counts for something, but what's attractive to others isn't necessarily so to me. Besides, if we stay together, we're going to be old one day and we'll need a lot more than beautiful bodies to keep us entertained.



Question 3:
Plan a dinner party, invite 6-12 people from history, recent or long since passed. Name those people, and what the main course would be. If you feel like going through the effort tell me how you would seat them.

Marie Curie

Nikola Tesla

Edgar allan Poe

W.H.Auden

EmilyBronte

Mata Hari

Kurt Cobain

Elvis Presley

Ciccolina the porn star/Italian Parliament member

Blaze Starr

Annie Oakley

Belle Starr

The meal would be a spread that would hopefully have enough to please all of them. Chicken Kiev, Chicken Marsala, beef roast, baked halibut, twice-stuffed potatoes, potatoes au gratin, green bean casserole, onion pie, cheese manicotti,French onion soup in an antique tureen with croutons for all, crudite, brown sugared carrots, a few extra vegetarian casseroles and more side dishes, and hot crusty bread with real butter. Dessert would be baked apples, creme brulee, bananas Foster and raspberry sherbet. I would have a red and a white wine available as well as sparkling cider and lemon water for anyone who didn't want to drink, although with my guest list, I doubt that'd happen.

I don't believe in seating people even though it's proper etiquette. They would know after Hors 'doerves who they wanted to sit with. People gravitate to people they're interested in, so I'd let them click without my help.

Dinner and the evening would be leisurely and I would have room for anyone who wanted to remain overnight.



Question 4:
I know a woman who has a saying; “If a man were a comma I would marry him”. I have my own; “If a woman were a sentence fragment I would marry her”. What form of punctuation would you marry if it were a man/woman? Tell me why as well.

He would be an ampersand. (&) That's my all -time favorite position. ;) Also because I like a man who's a bit of a puzzle and sometimes needs untangling. But I'd be willing to try a tilde (~) or even the @ symbol. But no semicolons!!



Question 5:
Ask me a question, no holds barred. I may not answer the question; probably won’t, but that isn’t the point.

I'll ask you two because I'm that kind of woman.

Where have you had your most amazing sexual experience....and what has been the stand-alone thing that has helped make you the man you are right now?

Mental attraction is a vital element for a lasting relationship. Physical aspects fade but your intelligence grows as you age together and experience life.



Question 3: Plan a dinner party, invite 6-12 people from history, recent or long since passed. Name those people, and what the main course would be. If you feel like going through the effort tell me how you would seat them.

Okay, all questions have been answered; I will for the fairness factor post the answers to my own questions.

First question: If your life was a movie what would be the song played during the love scene? Give me two; the one from the soft romantic love scene and the one from the hot, nasty, sweaty, sticky, monkey sex love scene.

1. Damn I Wish I was Your Lover – Sophie B. Hawkins

2. Give Up the Funk – Parliament



Second Question: What is more important to you personally in a relationship; a long term relationship, physical or mental attraction? Explain the reason. You can answer outside of the box here, if you feel the need or desire to do so.

Mental, by far; sex is great. Babies come from sex, did you know that? I can have sex with anybody; tall, short, skinny, thick. I can love a Red head, blonde, brunette, or some one Brittany bald. I’d just like to be able to have a decent conversation about something other than American Idol or the freakin “Real” World with that same person. Show me a woman who has legs that go on for days, an ass to make Carmen Electra look like Bea Arthur, points all her own sitting way up firm and high, and a face to make angels sing. Let that woman not know who Ishmael or Alighieri is, and she ain’t got a chance. Of course if you can find them both, not everyone is as handsome and well read as I am, then you really got a winner.

Third Question: Plan a dinner party, invite 6-12 people from history, recent or long since passed. Name those people, and what the main course would be. If you feel like going through the effort tell me how you would seat them.

Imagine me at the head of the table and looking straight in front of me. I will name them going from my left. Kahlil Gibran, Tupac, Jack Kerouac, Hemingway, June Cash. Now going from my right; Ray Lamontagne, Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Dante Alighieri, and Beatrice (Beatrice was Alighieri’s first and truest love, she was his guide into paradise since Virgil couldn’t enter in. look her up.). At the opposite end from me is Johnny Cash. Behind me to my left a bit is an old friend who I know would hate to miss the conversation and could whisper in my ear to help me out when I failed to hear or catch something I should have. We would have crispy chicken sammiches, with bacon, tomato, and chips from Joanie's.

Fourth Question: I know a woman who has a saying; “If a man were a comma I would marry him”. I have my own; “If a woman were a sentence fragment I would marry her”. What form of punctuation would you marry if it were a man/woman? Tell me why as well.

I already answered the what, here is the why. I love sentence fragments, they get to the point; they make you feel like you are in a conversation not just reading or writing. They make you feel a part of things. The day was bright, full of life and warmth. Sunshine. It filled the space between her and me with clarity and light. See what I mean?



I'll answer the questions asked of me in their own posts; and I'll read, listen to music suggested and make my choice in a day or two. Thanks for playing, and great answers from all.

Contestant 3's questions:

Where have you had your most amazing sexual experience....and what has been the stand-alone thing that has helped make you the man you are right now?

My most amazing sexual experience didn't even involve sex; does that make sense? It was in St. Louis, in my apartment, well before midnight.

As for something stand-alone, there is nothing, seriously that isn't a cop out. No way I could pick just one of the experiences that made me who I am. I'm different than I was a few months ago though.



Contestant 1's question:

What do you find attractive in a woman?

Lots of things, physical attributes are secondary but still important to a degree. I find honesty, consistency, imagination, individualism, and self awareness to be the most attractive things. I like a woman to be sure of herself, but willing to allow herself to be vulnerable when needed. All of that and a great ass work real nice together. I like a sense of humor too.



Contestant 2's question:

Have you ever considered a vow of celebacy? Tell me why yes or no please.



Yeah I have; a few times, mostly as a by product of something else though. I have "almost" joined a Monastery two times. Celibacy and myself don't get along though. Why? Well why not? People take sabbaticals for a reason, sex like anything else tends to cloud the mind. I can take a sabbatical. but not a vow.

Some high lights of why I picked number 3.



Sure physical attraction counts for something, but what's attractive to others isn't necessarily so to me. Besides, if we stay together, we're going to be old one day and we'll need a lot more than beautiful bodies to keep us entertained.



Perfect answer; that is all I have to say.



I like a man who's a bit of a puzzle and sometimes needs untangling.



Once again, perfect.



I'll ask you two because I'm that kind of woman.



Never settle for the choices given if you don't want to; especially if you can make your own choice.

Very prompt answers; well written and some thought was obviously put into it. I like folks who take some time to do things. Smooth is a great song, I don't care for STP, but thats alright. The fact you listed two songs negated the fact that I didn't care for the second listed.

The dinner guests were also very interesting; Poe, Auden and Bronte were great choices. Tesla and Madam Curie as well.



Everyone did great; I enjoyed all of the answers, but contestant three is my

choice.



I'll also take Nomad when he gets out of jail. I don't need any jealous cell mates in my life right now.

I had fun, it is always great when an attention whore like myself gets to be in the center of it all.
