Sarah Silverman's and Jimmy Kimmel's videos about fictional flings with, respectively, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have become monster Internet hits since airing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. A couple for almost five years, Silverman, 37, star of Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program, and Kimmel, 40, who's entering Live's sixth year, e-mailed PEOPLE a few answers about what makes their relationship tick.

HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?

SARAH: We first met at the Hugh Hefner Friars Club Roast [in 2001]. Jimmy was the host and I was a roaster. He said I was a slut and I called him fat and charisma-less.

JIMMY: Sarah thinks we met at the Hugh Hefner roast, but the truth is we met at a party years before that. Obviously, I didn't make much of an impression.

WHO'S MORE ROMANTIC?

SARAH: I am in a very Jewish way, in that I'm constantly thinking, "What if something terrible happens to him!?" and then clinging to him for dear life.

JIMMY: I'm not romantic in the traditional way, but I am an incredible lover. I give off a great deal of sexual energy. I have to be careful with it, because it makes people tremble.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE TO MEET EACH OTHER'S PARENTS?

SARAH: I was really nervous. But really soon after meeting them I was comfortable putting my head on his mom's lap, and his dad was comfortable releasing THE MOST TOXIC gas around me.

JIMMY: Sarah has two sets of parents. To break the ice, I handed each of them a SkyMall catalog and an envelope stuffed with $100 bills. I told them to go crazy. Once the foot massagers and remote grill thermometers started rolling in, they liked me a lot.

SO WHAT DID YOU DO FOR VALENTINE'S DAY?

SARAH: He made me popovers with homemade strawberry butter, and I gave him an awesome super deep tissue massage. (I'm VERY good ...)

JIMMY: To be honest, not only did I get the massage, I ate most of the popovers.

ANY CELEBRITIES YOU'D REALLY LIKE TO CHEAT WITH?

SARAH: I guess I'd have to say the late Ruth Gordon.

JIMMY: I wasn't kidding about Ben Affleck. Why can't people understand?
