Watch: Our RuPaul Drag Race stars open up about sex
If you managed to catch Baga Chipz, Vinegar Strokes and Blu Hydrangea on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK last year, you’ll know that they’re not shy when it comes to matters of the heart – and sex.
In this week’s episode of Reality Check, the drag-ony aunts open about all matters of sex, including whether they’d ever date a fellow drag queen.
“I can definitely confess, I have dated a drag queen, but not in drag,” exclaimed Strokes.
She continued: “I've dated guys who do drag. I've had sex with guys who do drag and I've enjoyed it playing plenty. Not that I'm into them being dressed up in drag while we're dating or shagging. I'm very much into the boy behind the woman essentially.”

Recalling a recent date she’d been on, Strokes revealed that her date decided to get into full drag right in front of her!
“We went for a couple of drinks and he goes to me, ‘Do you mind if I just put a bit of makeup on?’” he recalled.
“So, he pulls out a full, light-up mirror. He pulls out his makeup and he starts getting into full drag in front of me. This is no lie. He'd got his tits in his bag, his shoes, his wig, the whole shazam.
“I then was like, ‘Do you know what? I'm really not into this. I'm going to drink up and go’. I left - and he texted me and sent me a picture of him afterwards and I went, ‘I'm glad I did leave if that's what you've turned yourself into!’”
Chipz agreed with Strokes saying she would never date another drag queen.
“There's not enough room for two drag Queens in this relationship because I wear the makeup,” she said. “I'm the star!”
Papped yet again. I didn’t even have a drink. Just my luck. Just another day in the life of the most famous slappa in Britain. 🥰🥰🥰 @saaraaalto #drag #uk #dragqueen #dragrace #dragraceuk #pap #tabloids #milf #queens #whenthesungoesdown #celeb #star #fallover #workingmum #yummymummy #icon 🥰🥰🥰

As well as sharing their dating lives, the three queens were also on hand to share their tips on how to get people to notice you.
Hydrangea said she believes it’s important to just be yourself to ensure the right people notice you.
“I used to try and be someone that I wasn't to get people to notice me,” she admitted. “I found that that just attracted people that I didn't want to be around.
“I think a good way for people to notice you it's just to show them the real you. You don't have to be this obnoxious, crazy personality, which is what I would have tried to be in high school. It's okay just to be the shy kid in the corner because you'll find your own clique.
“Don't care too much about, who's noticing you because the people who noticed you are the people that matter.”
While Strokes agrees you need to be yourself, she said luckily, she’s always been one of those people who just naturally attract attention.
“I feel like people have always noticed me from when I was a kid up until now,” she said.

“I'm one of those personalities - one of those energies in the room - where I walk in and people know that I'm there, even if they're annoyed that I'm there. I think people are really intrigued by people who kind of live out loud.”
As the third place winner on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Chipz knows a thing or two about getting noticed and has some final words of advice if you really want to stand out of the crowd.
“Buy a firework bra,” she advises. “Wear a big massive bright pink wig with a big red nose on your face... and just walk into the room and be like, <screams>”
