Valentine's Day Inquisition:
A&E gets personal

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to ask a group of four relative strangers a group of four personal questions? Your devoted A&E editors knew that the idea was gold, so we rounded up a crew of entertainment gurus – along with University Students' Council President Chris Sinal – and subjected them to our Valentine's Day Inquisition. But be warned: some of these answers may shock and disturb you, so read at your own peril.



Stephan Gauthier, bassist and vocalist for Subb, a band of Quebecois rockers

Worst or funniest sexual experience?
One time at my girl's country house, we were all alone. They have an outside jacuzzi beside a tall hedge, and you can imagine what went on. So we were having "fun," and then came the moment – and I don't know what she did, but she used some pressure and I came over the hedge. It went up at least five feet high, but then we lost track of it, and didn't look around to find it.

Ideal Valentine's Day date or activity?
Good question. Actually, that weekend was quite ideal. It was just the two of us. That was ideal – just being together. Simpler things like chocolate might be more conventional, but there's nothing better than a nice supper and a private date.

Who would your ideal celebrity partner be and why?
My favourite would be the girl from A Knight's Tale [Shannon Sossamon]. She seems cool, although you can never tell; she might be a bitch. Milla Jovovich would be a close second.

Sweetest Valentine's Day gift you've ever received?
I got taken to New York City to spend the weekend. We spent the whole weekend walking around, and went to see Les Misérables on Broadway.



Rob Wellan, Grand Theatre Public Relations Manager

Worst or funniest sexual experience?
I was doing a shortcut through the theatre, and two actors were in a compromising position, and I walked right into them, looked at them, and said, "What are you doing?" They quickly pulled up their pants and ran to the backstage area. [Another odd sexual experience] was having to watch Puppetry of the Penis with Janice Zolf [of the New PL] – she had to watch it for the news.

Ideal Valentine's Day date or activity?
Listening to Denise Pelley sing.

Who would your ideal celebrity partner be and why?
Daffy Duck. I love Daffy Duck – he represents so many people that I run into. He is arrogant, full of everything and thinks he is a hero. Also, he is the only one I know who yells, "I come to save the fair Melissa!"

Sweetest Valentine's Day gift you've ever received?
A bouquet of flowers – tulips – when I had my gallbladder removed.



Kat Stewart, Publicist at Outside Music

Worst or funniest sexual experience?
Being caught in a love triangle with my best friend. I came back from vacation and realized that my boyfriend was suddenly hers!

Ideal Valentine's Day date or activity?
Just to have a Valentine (laughs)! Umm... I guess it would be being alone with Johnny Knoxville, laughing with him as he feeds me cinnamon hearts.

Who would your ideal celebrity partner be and why?
Johnny Knoxville – he's my ideal man. It's his short pants, and when he laughs off-camera, it's the cutest thing in the world!

Sweetest Valentine's Day gift you've ever received?
I never have a Valentine on Valentine's Day! And the one time I did, he didn't get me anything, and his mom got mad at him.



Chris Sinal, University Student's Council President

Worst or funniest sexual experience?
I walked in on my parents having sex and it scarred me for life. That was last week.

Ideal Valentine's Day date or activity?
Dinner with my girlfriend and then a quiet evening alone, possibly at a haunted amusement park.

Who would your ideal celebrity partner be and why?
Elisha Cuthbert from Popular Mechanics for Kids – she now plays Kim Bauer on 24.

Sweetest Valentine's Day gift you've ever received?
Love and sugar-free chocolate – though it tastes like ass.
