For the past three weeks, we got to know Gino Dela Pena better (we bet that you now know more about him than just "He's the guy from the McDo commercial!"). We tried to tap into his romantic side as a Valentine's Day treat, and later on, we learned his deep insights on love and relationships.
Of course, we wouldn't let him end his Cosmo Online Hunk stint without baring his sexy side, so we took matters to the bedroom and asked him sexy Cosmo questions. As our sweet finale for the Love Month, we're throwing in MORE romantic photos of Gino, too! Check them out after reading the interview.
What makes a woman hot in your eyes?
If she can really be comfortable with herself, if she’s secure enough to say she’s sexy even though she’s not physically sexy, that’s sexy.
What turns you on the most?
I guess [it's] when a girl makes me laugh. If she can really make me laugh and when I can just talk to her the whole day, when we can just kiss the whole day--nothing more, nothing less, just right.
What is the sexiest thing about you?
Me? I don’t know. I honestly don’t know. I don’t know.
What’s your take on pre-marital sex?
I don’t want to be religious about this, I’m not a virgin anymore. If I was gonna bring back something in time, though, I would’ve wanted to lose it to my wife because it’s the only thing that you can really give your wife. You can give [her] everything--the house, the money--but [sex is] something that’s really important also. It’s something that I regret losing.
How old were you when you lost it?
Young, really young. I was really young.
So when do you think is the most appropriate time to get intimate with a partner?
I wanna give it to the girl I’m gonna be marrying. When you’re dating, you’ve done everything, what’s there to do? You would really want it to be wrapped in a gift, you know you’ve waited for so long, and at the time that you really walk her down the aisle it’s really worth giving.
How important to you is waiting for the right time to have sex?
Doing it is something that messes with someone’s emotions. It’s spiritual for the girl and you really wanna respect that. It’s okay if you really love each other. But the thing is, at the end of the day, you really [want to] make her feel that [you] care about [her], about [her] emotions. [It's about making her feel that] at the right time when [when she wants to] do it, then let’s do it.
Have you ever had a one night stand?
Before yeah, I’ve had [one]. It’s something that I regret doing. I grew up with my sisters and my mom, so I would know how it feels if a girl is in pain. It’s something that I did, but I would never do [it] again.
