My Boy - Corey Layton
Have you ever wondered what kind of thoughts and opinions race through the male mind when it relates to 'girly' topics? Well wonder no more! Girl.com.au brings you 'My Boy', where we ask the questions in the hope of gaining an insight into the male mind.

This month's celebrity 'My Boy' is Melbourne radio personality, Corey Layton a.k.a 'Captain Turntable'.

We put him to the test, see how he handled the pressure!


Girl: Do you prefer girl's with/without makeup?

Captain: Sometimes I like that no makeup, tracksuit look, you know, hanging around the house look. But then there are other times when you are out and about, when girls do wear makeup and they look great. So I guess it really depends on the situation. Phew! I got out of that one! (laughs)

Girl: What a diplomatic answer! Now, do you prefer brains or beauty?

Captain: A mixture of both is what is needed. Look, if you can't hold a conversation with someone, then there is going to be a problem as you can only look at a person for so long before their looks wear off on you.

Girl: What is the worst pick-up line you have heard?

Captain: "Hi, I'm Captain Turntable!"(laughs) Or "Your legs must be tired because you've been running through my mind all night". They are all shocking!

Girl: What is your ideal woman?

Captain: An ideal woman to me, is someone who can bring out the best in you; someone you can have fun with and be able to chat to; and someone who has confidence in you and visa versa.

Girl: Big boobs or big heart?

Captain: There are some guys who go for big boobs and there are others who don't. For me, big boobs are not an essential factor.

Girl: But if they are there, it's a bonus right?

Captain: Yeah, if they're there, bring 'em on!

Girl: Are you a boxers or jocks guy?

Captain: A bit of both - boxers are more comfortable at night and jocks are better to wear during the day.

Girl: What is your fave breakfast cereal?

Captain: I'm one of those dudes who have a different cereal every week. Sure, I used to be a coco pops man, but I've since moved on to the nutri-grain and cornflakes.

Girl: Do you hog the remote control?

Captain: I don't hog the remote but when I have it in my hand, I flick all the channels - I must be really annoying! (laughs)

Girl: Are you a speedos or board shorts kind of guy?

Captain: Definitely board shorts! Speedos must really put girls off!

Girl: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Captain: Definitely the surprise element. Weekend getaways are good, as are really elaborate dates, you know, flowers, chocolates, the whole kit.

Girl: Are girls obsessed with their body image, more so than guys are?

Captain: I think girls express their obsession and dislike of their body image more than guys do, whereas guys can be obsessed with their body image but they tend to hide these obsessions.

Girl: Do you believe in love at first sight?

Captain: Not necessarily love, in my experience anyway, but there definitely was something there. I think love is something that grows as time goes on.

Girl: Are you a cat or a dog lover?

Captain: I have a cat but secretly I would like to have a dog. Not a big dog though and not one of those little ankle-biters either - more something in between the two.

Girl: Do you believe in astrology?

Captain: Generally no, but I have been caught on occasion, flicking through the astrology charts.

Girl: Do you believe in fate?

Captain: I think you create your own fate by getting out there, knocking on people's doors and annoying them.

Girl: How far would you go to win a girl's heart?

Captain: Pretty far, but if the signs aren't initially there, then you bail and you move on.

Girl: Do girls who have been around the block too many times put off guys?

Captain: Yeah I think they could, but it all depends on what it comes down to. Sometimes no, but again it depends on what they are looking for. For me, if I were after something long term then yes, this type of girl would put me off.

Girl: And a question that we girls have always wanted to know the answer to - what do guys talk about in the toilet?

Captain: There is not much conversation happening in the guy's toilets at all! You walk in and you grunt a hello, you might just talk about the footy, girls or how drunk you are! And that would be about it, whereas girls love to retreat to the toilets to...I have no idea why???

Girl: I think we'll leave that one alone for now! So tell us, how did it feel to be the interviewee?

Captain: Very strange. I'm used to being the one firing the hard questions!

Girl: Well you performed extremely well, considering the nature of the questions. Well Done!
