Barbie Benson:
Up Close and Personal


Right. Now, if I were to bid on some of these panties up for auction, how long does the bidding time go on for the usual pair?

Whoever puts the auction up sets the time. There's actually something called Power Auction, too, so you can do one in an hour if you like. But usually they're anywhere from one to 14 days. It runs exactly like eBay in the way it's set up. It's all automated and the people put the pages up themselves.

If I were to get some of these panties and I were to scrape some of their contents off into a petrie dish is there the possibility I could grow some yeast or something like that in there?

I hope not! <laughing>

Does a warning label come with each of these panties?

Yeah, alerts that they're buying at their own risk, right?

<both laughing> Is there a warning that comes with them or not?

No. I guess the people purchasing have to decide on the risks.

Caveat emptor! Speaking of yeast, you do your own nude cooking shows now?

Yes! The panty auction definitely brings people to the website because they hear the name and go, "Wow, that's cool!" And you know there's some pretty serious bidders on there who like certain girls and buy their panties all the time. Now that it's become so popular we've started adding a lot more to the site and the cooking show is just one of the new things we have. It's mostly for adults and seems to bring a lot of couples to the web site. They can

enjoy the show together with the nude cooking. It's all very fun.

You do the cooking yourself?

Yes, I do.

Did you learn any of these dishes from your mom?

Actually, some of it I guess I picked up from her. Bits and pieces are from different people you encounter through your whole life.

How much do you hate Celine Dion?

I don't, really! <laughing> I don't listen to her but that's people's choice if they want to.

Some Canadians think she gives them a bad name.

Well, I don't really think about it. I'm too busy selling panties to think of Celine Dion.

Right! Would you ever want to get her panties?

<laughing> If she wants to auction her panties that would be great!

Is hockey a male phallic fantasy game?

<pensive pause>

Do you watch hockey?

Yes, I do, sometimes. I've been to a few games here too. <pause> I've never really thought of it that way. It's definitely a boys-will-be-boys game. I really like Tie Domi of the Toronto Maple Leafs because he's always getting into fights.

Now, do you think he would give up a pair of his boxers for a charity auction?

Oh, maybe! Yeah, I'll have to work on that.

What's the strangest or most unique job you've ever had?

The strangest job?! I think selling my panties via a web site is the strangest!

<both laughing>

You're right! I didn't even think about that!

I thought travelling around the world doing puppet shows nude was kind of strange, now I'm selling panties on the Internet.

Let me rephrase. Before you started dancing, what was the strangest job you ever held?

I didn't really do much because I started dancing when I was 18. I did hairdressing for a short time but I didn't really care for it.

What would you do with Ernie's hair, if given the opportunity?

<laughing> His hair's been sabotaged a few times by the girls I've worked with. I've seen him with Rasta braids in and whatnot.

Do you still have the original Bert and Ernie puppets you worked with?

Yes, I do! I was thinking about auctioning them off eventually or, there's a Stripper's Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and I was thinking of maybe donating them there.

That'd be great! Have you ever been to Las Vegas?

No, I haven't. I've been out to California and the Los Angeles area but never to Las Vegas.

You want to stay in Canada then, you enjoy it that much?

Yes, I love Canada!

What's your favorite vowel in the alphabet?

As in "A," "E," "I," "O," "U?"

Yes . . . and sometimes "Y."

<laughing> Hmmm . . . <pause then lets out a somewhat orgasmic> "O"!

O! Right!! That's a good answer! <both laughing>

It's "O"!

You graduated with honors in the field of animal sciences.

Yes, I did.

From what school?

It was through correspondence.

Do you apply anything you learned to your life right now?

I had a dog for a long time and he just passed away in September. His name was Spike and he was 21-years-old.

You kept him alive that long?

Yes. And the other dog I had when I was a kid, Rocky, I had for 20 years.

Recently, my dog was attacked by a rottweiler. What is the best thing to do in that type of situation?

What kind of dog is it?

He is a cocker spaniel and he was just picked up and mauled by this rottweiler.

Oh no! Did he have to get stitches?

Yeah, he was shaved down and stitches were used. What would you recommend someone do? My sister didn't know what to do, she was just sitting there, basically screaming and crying afterwards.

I would take it to the vet right away!

Has anything like that ever happened to your dog?

Yes, actually he was attacked by a dog once, too, in a parking lot. I had him out for a walk and I grabbed him right up into my arms. The other dog was trying to bite me but I got away from it. Fortunately the other dog just gave him a little bite and there wasn't anything serious.

Was this before or after the animal science degree?


Is that why you chose to go into the field of animal sciences?

I just love animals. I really do and I still want to do something later on after I make my million dollars selling my panties <laughing>.

So you haven't made your million yet?

No, but I want to get a little farther and help animals.

Do you have any pets right now?

No, Spike just passed away in September. I've been looking on the Internet the last week or so because I've been missing him and they have all of these Chihuahua rescue web sites. And all of a sudden a friend of mine here gave me an article from the newspaper. They just rescued 111 Chihuahuas from a puppy mill just outside of the city that I live in. We're calling to see when they're going to be up for adoption.

Awwww . . .

It's going to be hard though because I'm going to go in and see all of them and I can only have one.

Or two!

Maybe two.

What's a puppy mill?

They're for breeding dogs and they're not usually under very good conditions. It's like livestock to them. The dogs walk around in their own feces all the time. It's really, really bad.

Like veal.

Yeah. They don't give them good dog food and most of them don't have any teeth. They take the female dogs and breed them basically until they die. It's very sad.

Well, that could be your charity?

Yes! I thought about it when I saw all of the rescue websites for animals. I thought I could make a website for them, too.

I punched in your date of birth over on astrology.com and I found out a few things about you.

Oh, OK!

You have a great appetite for sex and love to keep things fluid and changeable.

Yes. I'm pretty outgoing <laughing>.

It says here that you are monogamous and that you don't even want to see your lover flirting or checking out another girl because it doesn't make you feel good about yourself.

You know, I'm not like that. I'm not jealous like that. My boyfriend does a lot of the photo shoots for us. He'll shoot me and he'll shoot some of the other girls so I really can't be too jealous. Sometimes we'll both be going, "Oh yeah, she's really pretty." <laughing>

You are one of the more creative of the astrological signs.

That I believe. Sometimes it's not a good thing because I'll sit and do something and I get these ideas in my head and I'm not happy until I've got it the way I want it. I'm also picky about things like if I'm doing graphics or artwork or anything like that. I just take so long to do anything.

Knowing that, is a computer and web design right for you?

Oh yeah it is! We have a show coming up soon and, I'm not joking, I started at 10:30 yesterday morning and I worked at my computer until five in the morning. Printing stuff and doing graphics for CD covers.

One of the "dos" when you want to date a Pisces according to this is that you should learn to cry at movies. Does your boyfriend cry at movies?

I've seen him get misty.

Does that endear him to you?

Oh yeah! I'll say, "Your eyes are getting glossy, too," because I'll be bawling at the same time. He'll say, "Oh, no, no. I've got something in my eye! How 'bout those Leafs?" <laughing>

What's the last movie that made you cry?

Hmmm . . . I watch that show "Touched by an Angel."

The one with Della Reese.

Yeah, it's on almost every day here Monday through Friday and I usually catch it a few times every week and I cry every single show. I don't even know why I watch it because I cry at every show.

One of the "don'ts" in dating a Pisces is: Don't reproach a Pisces for being a daydreamer. They're known for being in tune with the spiritual and not the material. Are you a daydreamer?

Yes, very much so.

More spiritual?

I think so. <pause> I think things happen for a reason.
