Former Star Trek: VOYAGER star Jeri Ryan's chef fiance thrills her in the bedroom because he's the first man she has met who really appreciates her lacy lingerie. The actress, who was previously married to politician Jack Ryan, insists her French lover CHRISTOPHE EME is a cut above most men because he makes her feel extra special when she wears sexy undies for him. The blonde, who played alien SEVEN OF NINE in the Star Trek series, says, "The Frenchman notices every detail of every piece of lingerie or clothing a woman is wearing... He takes time to appreciate them, admire them and enjoy them. "The American man rips a woman's lingerie off too fast because he wants to get to the sex... way less sexy. "I bought my first garters when I met my Frenchman." And Ryan enjoys spontaneous sex with her chef lover, who she'll wed in France next June (07) - she has even been tempted to test the counters in the kitchen of the Los Angeles restaurant, Ortolan, she co-owns with Eme. She explains, "It's been tempting, but believe me, the restaurant kitchen is completely sanitary."
