20: In my 20s, I often slept with guys to get them to like me even if I wasn't in the mood. Now that I'm 31, sex is about my pleasure. I'm not as skinny as I was in my 20s, but I don't care. I'm more comfortable with my body because I view it as a powerful machine, and I carry myself with confidence. I enjoy sex more because I'm not hung up on what I look like naked, so I don't hold back in bed. That confidence also helps me take control of my orgasm, and I always make sure I have one. I feel totally comfortable guiding a man when he doesn't know what he's doing or maneuvering my body the way I like so I orgasm.

According to some of my friends, my number is high, but those are the ones who don't want to enter into double digits. Sometimes I worry they're right, but I have a friend who slept with 30 guys in college. Thinking about her makes me feel virginal.

I'm really into creative men. I work in advertising, and I have a thing for the crew: production assistants, directors, cameramen, and gofers. A man who works hard is a turn-on. And guys who work with their hands are usually strong.

The last guy I slept with was a stuntman on Miley Cyrus' television show, Hannah Montana. Because of his line of work, he had an incredible body and was quite acrobatic. We met on a photo shoot and had sex in the motor home where the actors got their hair and makeup done.

I live in New York City, and the dating scene here is weird. Things move so fast, and guys expect sex soon. No one really "dates" here; they "hang out." And with so many people around, sometimes women feel like they have to sleep with the guy sooner to keep his attention. I usually wait until I have three dates under my belt before sleeping with a new guy. By the third date, you can tell that he's interested in at least seeing if there is relationship potential there.

I've been dating an amazing guy for the past two months who cares a lot about making sure I have an orgasm. We haven't talked about how many people we've each slept with. If he were to ask for my number, I'd tell him the truth—but maybe I'd fish around first to see how many men he thought was too many, or I'd have him tell me his number first. I don't care how many women he's slept with, but if his number was low, I'd be turned off by his inexperience. I don't have time to teach a man how to please me.
