Sorry to Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie if this makes them feel more uncomfortable than usual.

Frisky Q&A: Kristen Schaal & Rich Blomquist On “The Sexy Book Of Sexy Sex”
11:00AM, Tuesday August 10th 2010

Maybe you know Kristen Schaal from “The Daily Show,” or her role as stalker Mel on “Flight of the Conchords,” or from small roles in about a dozen different movies. And while you probably don’t know his face, if you’re a “Daily Show” viewer, you’ve heard Jon Stewart deliver Rich Blomquist’s jokes, because he works there as a writer.

What you may not have known is that the two are a very funny couple in real life and have just released a hilarious book, entitled, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex (Chronicle). Part instructional manual, part highly scientific history of sex, TSBOSS has a little something for anyone who’s ever even thought about touching themselves or someone else, “down there.” We caught up with Kristen and Rich to ask them a few questions about their latest project—check out what they had to say!

Why, out of all the topics in the world you could cover, did you two decide to write a sex book?

Rich:
It was Kristen’s idea.

Kristen:
“We’re the best love-makers in the galaxy and we thought it would be a crime not to share just the tip of our wisdom.”

Were you fans of the Joy of Sex? And how do you think your book differs from that ‘70s classic?

Rich:
Ours has lots of pictures and colors and though JoS showed hairy werewolves having sex, ours includes not only werewolves, but other aliens and monsters having sex too.

Did writing a sex book change your sex life? And if so, was it quantity or quality that suffered?

Rich:
It reduced the quantity, so the quality had to be through the roof.

Why do you think the quantity suffered?

Kristen:
It’s hard to type when you’re making love.

So you guys didn’t have minions to do your typing?

Kristen:
No, we’re not that rich.

Advice columnists are always saying you shouldn’t s**t where you eat, but it seems to have worked out pretty well for you two. Did you two meet working on “The Daily Show”?

Rich:
We met working on an Adult Swim pilot called “Snake and Bacon.” Kristen was playing a fairy flapper. The show didn’t get picked up, but that’s how we met.

What advice do you have for someone who’s hot for a coworker?

Kristen:
I think it’s okay to date your coworker, but if you do break up, both of you should quit.

Both of you should quit?!

Kristen:
Yes! That’s fair.

What’s the most interesting bit of sex information you dug up while researching the book?

Rich:
I like the origin of the heart shape. It’s based on the seed of this extinct grain [the silphium plant] that was used for birth control, but everyone ate all of it so it’s extinct.

What’s your advice for a woman who’s going through a long dry spell?

Kristen:
A vibrator! Use it all the time!

What about a guy going through a sexual drought?

Rich:
Go into super-gentleman mode. Buy some fancy dinners, hold a lot of doors—anything you can do to win over her heart. You could also try painting her toenails in bed—

Kristen: —and between every coat, lick her p**sy!

How important is sassy lingerie to a relationship?

Both, pretty much in unison:
It’s a waste of money!

You guys devote an entire chapter to masturbation. How much is too much?

Kristen:
If it stops you from accomplishing simple things.

Rich: When dehydration becomes an issue.

Kristen: If your hand starts to cramp up, give your hand-lover a breather.

Rich: If you look out the window and see new inventions that weren’t there when you started masturbating, it’s time to stop.

Another big section of your book is devoted to the taint—that short stretch of skin between the balls and butt. Why do you think the taint gets such short shrift in sex books?

Kristen:
I think it needs a jazzier name. If we called it the Norwegian Wood, everyone would talk about it.

Are you guys worried about what your parents will think? Have you told them that you wrote such a sexy book?

Kristen:
We warned them throughout the whole process that it was really dirty. I think my mom will eat it up. My dad will put it down after a few pages.

Finally, I love that you guys came up with a new porno-name generator—no more first pet’s name + the street you grew up on; you go with favorite beverage + biggest insecurity = porn name. Mine’s Pinot Grigio Gingivitis, what are yours?

Kristen:
Chardonnay Mathematics.

Rich: Single Malt Bald Spot.

Dirty Talk With Funny Lady Kristen Schaal, Author of The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex
Monday, 08/16/2010 11:40 AM

Do you like to laugh? Do you like sex? Do you like to laugh about sex? Of course you do. Which is why I am beyond thrilled to share some hilariously sexy news with you.

Real-life couple Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist recently collaborated on a sex book unlike anything we’ve seen before and they’re calling it: The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex. The super funny love birds filled their book with LOL-worthy illustrations, wacky pictures and sex tips that they’ve personally tested.

Kristen is a comedian and actress who starred as Mel, the adorable super fan on Flight of the Conchords. Rich is a writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Last week, I spoke with Kristen about their book; I’m still giggling over it all and you can bet I’ve used the term “wide-on” more than a few times since.

Rosemary: Why did you decide to write a sex book?

Kristen:
I would only write what the world lacked. And that was a ground breaking sex book.

Rosemary: How’d you conduct your research for the book?

Kristen:
Authors should only write what they know, therefore research wasn't necessary.

Rosemary:
Who did you have in mind when writing the book? Who was your target audience?

Kristen: Humanity. And more importantly, humans with hard-ons and wide-ons*. (*The female equivalent of a boner.)

Rosemary: How has the book affected your own sex life?

Kristen:
Now that we have finished writing we can make love without the laptops between the two of us. Less painful now.

Rosemary: What should readers take away from all of this?

Kristen:
A new leader in the ongoing sexual revolution.

Rosemary:
Any tips for keeping the spark alive in the bedroom?

Kristen:
If you're still having sex in a bedroom then you definitely need to buy this book.

Rosemary: What’s up next? A sexy book tour? A new book on entertaining, gardening, fashion or pet care?

Kristen: Now I suppose Rich and I will go back to our supremely satisfying work as archeologists, or as we like to call it professional bone dusters.

Thanks for the chuckles Kristen!

Are you a fan of Kristen Schaal? Do you and your gal pals have a sense of humor when you’re chatting about sex? What about you and your guy? Do you think you’ll pick up this book? I’m definitely scooping up a few copies for holiday gifts. And if you were to write a sex book, would it be your own version of the Kama Sutra? A racy tell-all memoir? Or something fun like The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex?

Kristen Schaal on Her Sex Book, Her Strange Voice, and Being a Woman on The Daily Show
8/17/10 at 12:45 PM

After making a name for herself in the stand-up comedy world, Kristen Schaal broke out with her role as crazy-fan Mel on Flight of the Conchords. Since then, she has been anointed the “Senior Women’s Issues Commentator” on The Daily Show, played supporting roles in five comedies this year, including Dinner for Schmucks, and done voices for two animated flicks. Her latest project is a humorously instructional book with her boyfriend, Daily Show writer Rich Blomquist, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex. We spoke with Schaal about crushing on Paul Rudd, writing for The Daily Show, and receiving cigarette-smoking feedback from Matthew Weiner.

In Dinner for Schmucks, you play Paul Rudd’s assistant. I have to ask: Did you ever have a crush on Paul Rudd from Clueless?
I definitely had a Paul Rudd crush. He’s great. Working with him, I just sat back and was like, Wow, this man has been in all my favorite movies. Wet Hot American Summer, Romeo + Juliet. The list goes on. You don’t realize he’s been in all your favorite movies because he’s such a good ensemble player. He just blends into the tapestry of each film no matter how different they are.

You were actually in the very first episode of Mad Men! You were a switchboard operator?
Yeah. It was just the one episode. They filmed the pilot a year before it got picked up, because I think Matt Weiner was still working on the final season of Sopranos. So by the time it got picked up to go to series, I was starting work on Flight of the Conchords. I got invited to do more, but it was gonna interfere with one day of shooting Flight of the Conchords.

Oh no!
I know, I was like, Ahh! It was a happy place to be, but yeah. You know the person sitting to my left, I think, I just realized is the girl from the Progressive commercials.

If you didn’t have the conflict, would you have gone back?
Oh, in a heartbeat. Actually, I don’t smoke, and in the scene I’m smoking like crazy. I’m puffing every second, and they were like, “Cut, cut.” And Matthew Weiner came out and was like, “You don’t smoke, do you?” I was like no, and he’s like, “I can tell. We’ll just let yours sit in the ashtray.”

I was reading comments about you on YouTube, and some people seem surprised that the way you talk in your comedy routines is the way you normally talk. Have you always talked with that voice, or have you sort of cultivated it for comedy?
Oh yeah, this is my voice. It’s definitely landed me some really sweet voice-over work that I’ve been hoping to do forever. But yeah, I thought it would hold me back for sure, because I remember in college there was this very prominent voice-acting coach and it was hard to get into her class. I went up to her office with this friend who happened to be a hot boy, and we walked in and she was like, “What are your names?” And I was like Kristen Schaal, and she just dropped everything and was like, “You have an atrocious lisp!” I was devastated and she just wouldn’t let me into her class. So I was like, “This might be it for me.” I’m relieved it’s working out.

Congrats on the Daily Show segments. You just did the Mama Grizzly segment last month, but before that it had been about a year since your last one. How does that work? Do you pitch them ideas or do they come to you first?
I pitch them ideas with my boyfriend Rich Blomquist, who’s a writer there. Yeah, it had been a year and I was glad to be back on last week. I don’t know why it had been a year, but I hope it’s not another year before the next piece. I talk about women’s issues. It’s a really difficult topic because women’s issues is not in the news very often. It’s sort of a male-dominated world, to put it delicately. [It’s hard] waiting for a women’s issue to become a topic that not only can I figure out what point of view I can have on it, and Jon needs to figure out a point of view together with me, [but we also have to] sort of make it funny. It’s a hard job, but it’s work I’m really proud of and I hope I get to continue doing it.

There was that whole Jezebel kerfuffle about there not being enough women on The Daily Show, and the women of The Daily Show wrote that joint letter in response. Whose idea was that?
I’m not sure; I was working on another project at the time. It seems, from what I can gather talking to the executive producers, that everybody sort of wanted to respond and that was the best way to do it. I think they felt a bit wounded by the Jezebel article because, you know, it painted an inaccurate picture of Jon Stewart, for sure. Also, in my opinion, I think it’s disappointing because it brought up a really good, smart point that we do need to be talking about, which is why are there not more women in comedy? Great point. Thank you, Jezebel. That is something we all need to talk about. But it was conceived from a sexist place by saying Olivia Munn was gonna suck on the show before she had a chance to be on the show. It was already judging her before she even had a chance to test herself on the show. So it was backwards. It was an emotional couple of weeks for me, for sure, because it’s my show. My boyfriend works there. Also, why didn’t I get brought up in that article when I’ve been in the show only talking about women’s issues? It didn’t benefit the article, so they just left me out.

What do you feel is the most constructive way to address the disparity between the number of men and women in comedy?
To keep talking about it, definitely. I think more support for the women that are in comedy would be good. Giving props to people that are doing it right now, getting behind what they’re doing. Keep bringing it up in different places and definitely do that fight, but don’t tear each other down while you’re doing it because then you’ve got nothing left.

You and your boyfriend just came out with a funny sex book, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex. It’s chock-full of information. Did you have to do much library research?
Yeah, it took many months and lots of nights and hours studying. I learned more about sex than I ever wanted to. I probably will never write another thing about sex again.

You have a healthy pelt of chest hair in your author photo. Is that Photoshop or real? What was the process of getting that hair?
Yeah, that’s real hair. That involved me just not shaving for a week and drinking lots of coffee. My dad told me when I was little, when I wanted coffee at church, that if I drank it I’d get hair on my chest. And it came true. I drank a lot of coffee in order to write that book.

Does it feel a little weird to be playing a voice in Toy Story 3 and Shrek Forever After, then publishing a book about sexy sex a few months later?
It did feel weird, and I was nervous about it because I was finishing the final chapters of the book with Rich and meeting the director of Toy Story 3’s adorable children. I was like, my God, because in New York you can easily just not meet a kid here if you work it right. So yeah, I was really nervous and I wrote an apology in the back of the book to the director of Toy Story 3 and his kids. But I feel pretty distant from that now.

How did you meet Rich? Did you meet in the comedy world?
Pretty much. He was working on a pilot for Adult Swim called Snake N Bacon. He cast me to play a fairy and at the end of the day, after I was done, he asked me out on a proper date for dinner. Which had never happened to me in New York. Usually I’ll get asked for coffee or drinks so the person can decide if the date is going okay. But he put it all on the line. We’d have to sit and put food in our faces and look at each other.

You’re reviving the Hot Tub show at Littlefield in Brooklyn. Now that your name has been out there on Flight of the Conchords and The Daily Show, are your crowds noticeably bigger than before?
Oh yeah, I was surprised. Monday was the first show, so that’s obviously gonna be a good turnout. I was shocked. I think like 200 people came. I don’t know if that will sustain itself for the next two months, but I was pleased as punch. I’m hoping there’s a real need for a comedy show on Monday nights in Brooklyn.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/chickenkarma/5000010195/
after that I told her thank you again for delivering the conan doll and she told me that when she gave it to him that there was a guy who had a video camera, so there might be a chance that the doll will show up on conan's tour documentary. *squee*

In my book she wrote "To my favorite artist, enjoy the smut! <3 Kristen Schaal"
