Playboy.com: It’s what people want to see! Along with people getting eaten of course. Now you’ve done a lot of spoof movies over the last decade, what drew you to those?

Electra: I’ve always liked to have fun and when I’m hanging out with my friends I’ve got a silly sense of humor.  So for me, it’s what it was all about. Getting these scripts and cracking up at what the scenes were.

With Scary Movie, just working with the Wayans… you just know they’re going to do it right. They can make it really funny and just seeing the reaction of other people. It’s like,  you don’t take yourself so seriously. That makes me feel good, being able to connect with a lot of people because of that.

Playboy.com: It’s a gift. Do you have a favorite moment?

Electra: With Scary Movie it was all about that opening scene.  She’s on the phone, and the killer comes into the house, and then she’s running through the woods and the sprinkler system come on… and once again I end up in a bikini and panties.

Playboy.com: So you’re just not surprised now when people ask you to uncover?

Electra: No, not at all. It’s ok, what do you want me to do?

Playboy.com: It should be in your film contracts from now on.

Electra: I actually get really happy when I’m working and don’t have to do that, it’s different.

Playboy.com: Really?

Electra: It’s something I’m not used to-not being in a bikini scene, or that sexy lingerie scene.

Playboy.com: So you’re telling us you want to be in a movie in a parka next?

Electra: [Laughs] You know, either way I’m grateful to do what I love to do, and be in a business that I really wanted to be in, with a career and a life doing this.

Playboy.com: What do you have in the works right now?

Electra: I’ve started designing my line of sexy novelty gifts for Spencer’s. It’s really fun.

Playboy.com: What are your favorite things so far?

Electra: Studded handcuffs…a cute little set of handcuffs, and a whip. There’s a black set and a pink set - the pink whip has a little heart cut out in it. There are glitter tattoos, and other really cute things. It’s been really fun for me to do. I have my new pole coming out, it’s better than ever, new and improved – it spins!

Playboy.com: It spins?

Electra: Uh huh, oh yeah, it really made sense. You know coming from Playboy and burlesque strip tease things, and all that stuff; and from doing the aerobic strip tease line.

Playboy.com: Any more of that series coming out soon?

Electra: We’ve been talking about it.

Playboy.com: What are you watching on TV these days?

Electra: I watch a lot of reality TV and documentaries.  I love Dance Moms, I love it! I love Atlanta Housewives and the Braxtons. I also love American Horror story.  It’s amazing!

Playboy.com: Going back to Dance Moms, any plans?

Electra: No, no, not yet. But you never know….It’s the one thing I haven’t experienced in life. I’m really excited for the day to come when I choose to be: I wanna be a mom! I’ve always felt like I just wanted to get everything out of the way, so I can be a good mom.

Playboy.com: Current guilty pleasure?

Electra: That would be the Jersey Shore.

Playboy.com: Is there any celeb that you could’ve slept with in the past, that you now regret not doing?

Electra: No, there were plenty of them [laughs].

Playboy.com: What advice would give to girls who want to follow in your footsteps?

Electra: I would just say if you want to be in this business start practicing your craft. Whatever you want to do: dance, sing, act; just work on it now so when the opportunity comes you’re ready. And don’t be afraid of rejection, because everyone gets rejected and you need to just keep on going. If you have the willpower, and it’s something you really want, you’ll get it.

Playboy.com: Any last words for us?

Electra: It’s been really fun talking with you because of the Playboy relationship, and has really brought me back to the first time I posed. It’s somewhat crazy how my life changed. I’ve just gone with the flow. I’m really grateful for everything that I’ve been able to do.
