Gene Simmons certainly is not short on either libido or misogyny. Here are two quotes tendered as evidence:
'The notion is that if you want to welcome me with open arms, I'm afraid you're also going to have to welcome me with open legs. "
"And in music, it's the great aphrodisiac that says that even though I'm short, fat, ugly, bald, and... and I'm hung like a second-grader, but if I'm in a rock band, I've got a better than average chance of bedding you down than if I was a dentist. " -
The KISS bassist, once romanitically linked to Diana Ross, Cher and now wife and Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed has a sex tape floating around the net.
Apparently a Panamanian company released a tape on Tuesday showing him having sex with an Austrian called 'Elsa", a spokemodel for a sports drink that he endorses.
Sex was also on his mind last year when he preseted at the 2007 AVN Adult Movie Awards in Las Vegas. He received a special Golden Tongue Award for his exploits.
He also now has a line of comics, believe it or not, SimmonsComics Here's the blurb from one edition,
It's "T&A meets CIA" in DOMINATRIX, when Dominique Stern, a professional dominatrix, becomes ensnared in a world of government cover-ups and international conspiracies. After a client loses his composure during an intense session and blurts out top-secret information, Dominique finds herself a reluctant superhero who must save herself, her friends, the government jerk who got her into this mess, and quite possibly her country.
