HIP-HOP MOGUL, DESIGNER, ENTREPRENEUR
A master of seductive communication, Diddy sets the stage for a sexy conversation and actually has
one with us...
•What do you say?
"The majority of a sexy conversation is not in words. The breathing pattern changes in sexy conversation, it becomes emotional. It's a feeling where you are both locked and lose all track of time. You could be talking about food, but the sexiness is in the way you talk about how the food tastes when it hits your mouth. Sexy conversation is a layer of conversation people don't usually go into."
•So what food is sexy to you?
"I find fruit to be sexy. Mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries. A mango is sexy because of the juiciness, especially when you bite into it and let the juice drip into your mouth."
•Where's the sexiest place to eat?
"At home, in the living room. Just you, your woman and a bottle of wine. I'm a big Opus One fan—I know it's domestic wine and people may not be into domestic wine, but Opus is good."
•The sexiest time of day?
"Sunset. It is right in between the light and the dark. It is understated, not dramatic. Sunrise is startling to me. As it gets darker, the hustle and bustle starts to slow down. Seeing the moon on one end and the sun on the other is a blessing from God."
•What should the lady be wearing?
"An anklet on her foot—especially if that is the only thing she has on—is very sexy."
•What would you have on?
"If I were inviting her to my home, I would have on a nice pair of jeans, nice shoes and a cashmere sweater. I would get a haircut earlier that day and splash on some cologne. A man should smell clean and not cologne-like. It should be a scent that a woman would want to lick."
Walking the Walk with JEREMY PIVEN
ACTOR: Uber-agent Ari Gold on HBO's Entourage
Piven's got the player thing down pat, and he's game to discuss it.
•What makes a person sexy?
"I believe that everyone in one way or another is sexy. It's the way you walk, the way you move through space."
•Do you try to be sexy?
"By no means. If I did, it would be viciously, comical, I don't even have lines."
•From the looks of pictures taken of you at events, you don't need lines.
"I do get my picture taken when I'm out. It's sexier to have a great role than to have people following me to my car to get a picture. But hey, this is the tax you pay on living your dream. Because of my work, I have an introduction to people already, so that's cool. People think that they know you. Sometimes they even drink courage juice and get in my space. But like I said, that's the tax you pay on success."
