"I'm being tested. It's hard when you have a sweaty man pressed up against you every day. I feel lascivious," Pamela Anderson said.
Blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson vowed to give up sex until November for the duration of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars, but is finding it an impossible task because her dance partner Tristan MacManus is so sexy.
Speaking to the USA TODAY newspaper, the former Playboy model said: "I'm being tested. It's hard when you have a sweaty man pressed up against you every day. I feel lascivious. But I'm trying, I'm trying."
She added that Irish hunk Tristan MacManus makes it much "harder", joking: "Trust me; I could chew through a table right now."
The Baywatch babe - who originally took part in the ballroom dancing series in 2010 - is heading to Rio next week for work reasons, and has asked Tristan to join her on the trip.
She laughed: "I'm going to take my sweaty Irishman down there. I'm 45 he's 30. But maybe that's how it's supposed to be ... Not good. Not good."
A love of younger men clearly runs in the family, since Pamela admitted it was her mother, Carol, who originally had her sights set on "sexy" professional dancer Tristan MacManus.
She said: "We were talking about partners and it was my mother who said, 'I hope you get Tristan, because he's sexy. You'll like him.' And here I am. (My mother) is so excited. She's coming to the first show."
