What are you up to these days? I’m on Bravo TV’s Miss Advised, Mondays at 10 p.m. I’m touring with my book Hot Sex Over 200 Things You Can Try Tonight. Creating another iPhone app in addition to Kegel Camp and 101 Tips from Sex With Emily. I’m also doing my Sex With Emily radio show and podcast twice a week.
Where would you have your last meal on earth? My last meal would be at flour + water. I would have a pizza and whatever pasta special they featured that night. And then I’d leave the planet happy.
Who's your favorite quintessential local character? Former Mayor Willie Brown is a San Francisco legend. I worked for him during his mayoral administration and was so inspired by him and San Francisco politics that I directed the documentary film See How They Run (about the mayoral run-off between Willie Brown, Tom Ammiano, and Clint Reilly).
Where's your go-to date place? Lone Palm, is a great first date “let’s just have a drink” spot. Easy to get to from almost anywhere and they have really good dirty martinis. It usually packs a crowd so you and your date don’t have to awkwardly stare into each other’s eyes prematurely. Rather you can check out the hipster crowd for a distraction (if need be).
Where's your secret spot? South Park. It’s right near my office and great for my dog Daisy to run around while I often feel compelled to swing on the swingset.
What's your favorite under-the-radar SF restaurant? The new sushi restaurant in Noe Valley, Saru Sushi. Super fresh fish, nice waitstaff, and lively atmosphere.
What's your favorite SF institution? Good Vibrations is my favorite San Francisco institution. Never an awkward or dull moment at Good Vibrations. Plus they’re uber sex positive, teach amazing workshops (“how to have a threesome” anyone?), and they’re always on hand to answer any questions you might have. Nothing is off limits.
What do you get obsessive about here in SF? Parking. I finally got a Mini Cooper so that solves the problem most of the time, but otherwise I used to live in a state of pre-parking anxiety. It wasn’t pretty.
