"Kill the Romance"

Suiciderock: Could you tell us something about the first time when you had sex?
Antti:
I was 15 years old. It was a really nice situation. I was dating some girl at this time. We have been a couple for about two years. I was totally sober. So it was not one of this party happenings. It was romantic for both of us. Actually I enjoyed it pretty much. Nothing bad to say about it.
Larry:
Actually mine was kind of opposite, because I was dating a girl at this time. I was 16 years old. I was really drunk and just hanging around here in Tampere at our rehearsal room. There was this really drunk girl. It was not so intensive. It was just like messing around. It wasn't so nice, because the girl of that night wasn't the girl I was dating with that means I cheated my girlfriend. But that was the first time. Maybe.

Suiciderock: Is there something related to sex what you prefer?
Antti:
It depends on the situation. When you eat the same candy for twenty years or something it might start to get boring. So you have to find some other tastes sometimes. I'm always open minded. I'm always open to give a try for something new. If you never try you never know. Some things are good and others are not. Actually there are many good things.
Larry:
It's nice if there are some surprises. If you do it at different places for example outside. Of course, that's nice during the summer time.

Suiciderock: Is there anything that turns you off?
Antti:
I guess nothing. I'm too horny that something could turn me off.
Larry:
Maybe some really weird noises and bad music is also turning me off. There are several kind of bands, which I can't listen to while having sex. Once I had sex. I don't want to mention the band right now, but there was this song on the radio and it really turned me off. 

Suiciderock: What kind of underware du you consider sexy on women?
Larry:
I like the 50's style underwear. This kind of panties and stuff. I also like the swimming suits out of this time, but I also like Bikini's. Anything goes.
Antti:
It depends on the woman. Strings are good, but not all kinds of strings. Do you know „Bold and Beautiful"? There is this woman called Brooke Logan. This woman definately has a good style when it comes to underwear. I really like her style. Actually I watched all the old series from „Bold & Beautiful" from YouTube yesterday.

Suiciderock: What kind of underware are you wearing by yourself?
Antti:
Usually or now? Do you want to see it? Some boxers  from Adams and old Negative shirt. At least these are the closest things to my skin at the moment.
Larry:
I also like boxers, I don't like slips. No strings for me.
Antti:
I have one string at home. I haven't used it for 6 years. It's a merchandise string from „Apulanta". It has this red cross on the front area. It's very cool. It has this writing „It's plastic inside". It's really nice, but I haven't worn it for six years. Maybe I will wear it on stage again. 

Suiciderock: Did you ever have sex with more than one woman?
Antti:
Actually, yes. It was cool. It was at Provinssirock about five years ago. We were just hanging around with some friends. We didn't perform at Provinssirock. There were two girls, me and a friend of mine. We got drunk and had a really good time. It was funny and the sun was shining, but I can't remember who was the daddy of the idea. We found some nice place at the camping area. There was this tent. It was empty. We decided to have some more drinks there. After that we had sex in the tent. The whole thing took a little bit more than a half hour. Well, the job was done. It was really hot, a small tent, four people inside. While we were collecting our clothes again, some drunk and angry guy opened the tent. He was screaming something like „I can't believe it you had sex in my tent...". He was so angry. I remember that I took my shoes and started to run for my life. Nowadays I can understand him. Sorry about that!!! We just wanted to have some fun!
Suiciderock: Would you do it again?
Antti:
Yeah, yeah.
Larry:
I haven't had sex with more than one woman, but I had sex in a room with several people inside. We had sex and the other ones were watching. It was like in the cinema for them. Actually they were sleeping.
Suiciderock: Sounds like kind of after party?
Larry:
Yeah. In their hotel room. There were many girls in one hotel room.

Suiciderock: What's the best place to have sex?
Antti:
I don't know. For me it doesn't depend on the place. It's more about who is with you. I'm not so shy. I can have sex everywhere. I could have sex in the park, here or whereever. Everytime it's funny.
Larry:
One of my best memories is really dangerous. I was driving 100km/h on the motorway while I was given a blow job. It was really dangerous, but it felt good and I survived. I was watching the road all the time. Really strange situation.
Antti:
Maybe your own bed is the best place anyway, but it can also be the most boring place when you have done it there for so many times. It's not that exciting anymore. 

Suiciderock: What does a woman need to have to get your attention?
Antti:
The girl needs to be satisfied with herself. She needs to know who she is and who she is not. I don't like drunk girls that much. They are not my cup of tea.
Larry:
I like it when the girl has some kind of self-confidence. There are many things. It's the whole package that makes it interesting. For me it's hard when the girl is really shy. I get the feeling that I'm doing something wrong.
Antti:
It scares you if you think that the girl is scared of you. It makes you feel uncomfortable. It's difficult if you don't get any feedback from the girl. It's always good to talk about things and to show your feelings. It also plays a role how the girl behaves and what kind of style she has. There are good ways and ways which are not so good.
Larry:
It's not so sexy when someone comes to you right after the show and askes you straight away to fuck. That is something I don't like.

Suiciderock: The fact that you don't like it, doesn't neccessarily mean that you haven't done it before.
Larry:
Yeah I have done it before, but that was a mistake. I don't like it when somebody is too pushy. It's good if some kind of hunting is going on.
Antti:
You have to be cool.

Suiciderock: That leads us to the next question: Groupies: Pain or Pleasure?
Antti:
Both. In a good way and in a bad way. I had some chicks and I also had some good feelings with them, but there also had been annoying moments. But of course, it also depends on yourself. It's not the fault of the groupie when I don't like it. It can be that I'm in a bad mood or whatever. It might happen that the situation is too complicated. I think groupies always have had a place in the world of Rock'n Roll. It always has been like this and I think it always will be like this. I think it's good. If the guy likes the groupie and the groupie likes the guy it's good for both sides and everybody wins. You don't have to do anything unless you don't want it.
Larry:
I agree.

Suiciderock: Did you ever have sexual experiences with another man?
Larry:
Actually yeah. It was back in my teenage years. We were drunk. I didn't have sexual feeling. I wasn't horny or anything. I was just laughing. It was like having fun for me. It was like let's try this once. You have to try everything, but I'm not into man at all. It was just fooling around.
Antti:
I haven't done that unless you don't count my experience in the tent.

Suiciderock: What's your opinion about porn?
Larry:
Nowadays it's boring. I like the movies from the 70's and the 80's. The porn films were more interesting at this time. Nowadays they are just the same all the time. The story is always the same. I don't think there is something wrong with porn. Everybody is into it. Nothing happens against the will of the actors. At least that's my opinion.
Antti:
I think it's just one thing in life and there are many other things besides porn. I like to watch porn pretty much. I don't have this TV channels. When we are on tour I usually share a hotel room with Jonne. I think he likes it more than I do. He always has to zap to the pay TV channel and he has to pay for it and I don't have to pay anything. So it's good for me. Everything has been done already. There are so many different categories. I don't think there is any bad movie.

Suiciderock: Could you imagine to make your own film?
Antti:
Yeah I can imagine to do that. I would be the actor.
Suiciderock: What would the film be about?
Antti:
That asked from the director. He just would tell me what I have to do. I definately would try to do my best. Maybe Christus would like to direct the movie.
Larry:
I would like to do my own thing. It would be a private porn movie.

Suiciderock: What is your opinion about...?
    - sex toys?
 Larry:
Dildo.
Antti:
Yeah Dildo. The same one, which comes to my mind first.
    - self love?
Larry:
Toilet. That's the place I'm usually masturbating if we are travelling.
Antti:
Couch. Not my own. Everytime somebody elses couch.
    - romance?
Antti:
Kill the romance. You know the band?
Larry:
Flowers came to my mind while thinking of romance. I don't know why.
    - One-Night-Stand?
Larry:
Some kind of love thing.
Antti:
Groupies.
    - prostitudes?
Antti:
In my opinion it is a cruel business. That's the picture I have of prostitution so far. Of course, I don't know everything about it. It might depends on the country and if it's illegal or not. I know that it is legal in some places and than it's much more better, because you don't have this problem with crime and deseases that much. It's okay if the woman who works in that business can cope with her job and the costumer who comes to visit her knows and gets what he wants. So everybody wins again. I don't think it's bad.
Larry:
I don't like it. It's like faking something. Women who do it, don't neccessarily like it. It's not real. It's just about money. For me it's not what sex is about. 

Suiciderock: Can you seperate sex and love?
Antti:
Yes I can. It would be difficult if you aren't able to seperate love and sex, because both themes are totally different sometimes.
Larry:
You can have sex before you are in love with somebody. Sex and love are two different things, but they are nice together.

Suiciderock: Is there any advice you would give to someone who never had sex before?
Antti:
Go and do it. You're missing lots of fun if you refuse to have sex.
Larry:
Try it.

Suiciderock: Last question: Is rock'n roll better than sex?
Larry:
No. Rock'n roll and sex are on the same level. It's the whole package: Sex, drugs and rock'n roll that fits perfectly together.
Antti:
Well, you can have good sex and you can have bad sex as well. That's the same with rock'n roll, but it might be better. Even a good shit might be better than a bad fuck.
Larry:
That's true.
