Harris is a huge Howard Stern fan. "I love Stern so much," he says, adding that one of his biggest fears about coming out was "being asked really pointed and specific sexual questions on Howard Stern." But his first Stern encounter as an openly gay man went well: "I was told by a friend of Howard's to look him in the eyes and not really avert your eyes," he says. "Like, really answer his questions honestly, 'cause as soon as you start fumbling and evading, he zeroes in like an amazing shark. I think they do a lot for gay rights, 'cause Howard is super vocal in a real alpha male way about his opinions which are of utter acceptance on almost all fronts." He does admit to exaggerating when he told Stern that he'd been with 14 women as a younger man. "Maybe it was 10, or less than that," he says. "I was probably trying to impress Howard."
