Sex & Business
What percent of business approaches from Urban Model clients are without sex in mind?
I honestly can't answer that. When I go into a business situation, it’s just that...business. I'm not trying to read peoples minds, so I don't know if that's what they're thinking.
How do you deal with those in the business who you find attractive and will have sex with?
That hasn't happened as of yet, but when and if it does, I will always remain professional. One has nothing to do with the other. It’s like having a secret crush on someone. Doesn't mean you need to act on your feelings.
What do you feel about sex and how it has helped spawn some careers and even television shows?
It’s always unfortunate when women think they have to use sex as a way to advance in any industry. I'm not here to pass judgment, but that's not an issue I'll ever have.
Is there a healthy medium where sex and business coincide?
Right now, no. There are power couples where a husband manages his wife, and I'd imagine in the beginning there was sex and business. So, if I ever decided to get involved while doing business with that person we would have to both understand the balance. Sex and business can happen—it’s not far-fetched to me.
Where do you draw the line?
I draw the line with casual sex and business. I think that could get messy. I don't get involved with people I do business with, but if I were to do it, there would have to be more to it than a casual fling.
Have you had business success with a person whom you also found attractive and had sex with?
Like I said, the sex and business hasn't happened in my world.
Does being attractive assist in: shopping budgets, travel, bills and grooming?
If I said “No,” I’d be lying.
Favorite place to be kissed: Mouth and chest.
Favorite body part on your man: Torso area on a physically fit man.
Game Plan: Building my own empire by being an entrepreneur.
Accomplishment: Graduating from John Jay with a degree in criminal justice.
