What Is, And Isn’t, Giving Marc Jacobs a Hard-On

I love music. I don’t know much about classical music, but I’ve been enjoying listening to it lately. I find it very calming and with my energy not being as high as it often is, I guess I’ve just been enjoying the beauty of different composers. In terms of visuals, contemporary art stimulates me the most, although in working on the new house, I’ve been antique shopping, looking at rugs and fabrics for the interirors, and so I’ve been looking at a lot of interior magazines. I find gorgeous rooms to be extremely arousing at the moment. … It doesn’t give me a hard-on. But you know as well as I do that things that arouse me sexually are usually things that are unavailable to me. [Laughs]
