Here we are again with another edition of The Quickie. This time up we have the lovely Taylor Castaneda, aka Taylor Cast of The Urban Dater, (whose recently published book – I Made All The Mistakes (So you don’t have to) – is chocked full of her dating mistakes, as well as advice & essays on managing the minefield that is the single life). And as you will soon see, she’s one brassy dame with some interesting perspectives on the whole dating and mating game.
In three words or less describe your current sex life.
Active. Satisfying. Fun.
What’s the one thing you now know about sex, dating and relationships that you wish someone had told you when you were a kid?
That another person can’t give you confidence or help you love yourself. That has to come from within.
Who holds the number one spot on your freebie five list?
Jon Hamm and George Clooney can arm wrestle for it.
Most pick up lines are this cheesy.
What’s the sexiest pick up line you’ve ever heard? How did you respond?
I don’t think a sexy pick up line really exists. I prefer when a man just introduces himself. But my current boyfriend won me over with a quip about a bumble pug.
Name one thing on your sexual bucketlist?
I’ve checked them all off.
When it comes to monogamy, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being “I’m wide open” and 10 being “I’m not just closed, my shit is on lock” where do you fall?
I recently went engagement ring shopping so I’d say I’m heavy into monogamy. But I’ve varied from time to time. I’d say it all depends on your stage in life.
Is the intersection of sex and technology (i.e. internet dating, social media, smartphones) more of a help or hindrance to the dating scene?
I think it’s the greatest thing to happen to dating. Yes it has drawbacks but it really opens more doors for the opportunity for sex and love.
What is your least favourite sexual position and why?
Anything that requires me to be a part time acrobat doesn’t sit well with me.
