So open! Amy Poehler held nothing back while talking with Howard Stern on Monday, Oct. 27. The funnywoman, promoting her new memoir Yes Please, admitted to watching porn and having gone on a date with John Stamos following her April 2014 divorce from Will Arnett.

 

"It was new and weird," Poehler, 43, said of getting back in the dating game after splitting from the Arrested Development actor following ten years of marriage. "I hadn't dated when there was texting. I got married in 2003 and all of a sudden I'm like, 'Oh, right. Now you text somebody.' That was new. There were times when I was out with guys and I was like, 'Oh, I think I might be on a date, but I don't know,'" she added, before revealing she dined with one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors.

"I remember I was at dinner with John Stamos…handsome men are really something else…We were having dinner and I was like, 'Oh, maybe this is a date!' But I didn't know," Poehler said. "But I kind of blew it…I remember thinking like, 'Oh, s–t. Like, if this is really a date…' I think I was wearing a Leslie Knope top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work," she laughed.

Poehler said she "didn't f–k" Stamos and that she really only dates people she knows. "I've usually dated people that I have been friends with, and I'm dating someone now. I have a boyfriend whom I've known for a very long time before we started dating," she added of beau and fellow comedy star Nick Kroll.

Poehler said Arnett and Kroll "know each other [and] it's all fine," but don't expect Kroll and Poehler to rush into things. "It's great to not live with somebody," said the Parks and Recreation star, who shares sons Archie, 6, and Abel, 4, with Arnett. "I don't know if I ever want to live with somebody else again."

The Baby Mama actress went on to talk about sex, saying that she knows she's good in bed and yes, she watches porn — regularly.

"I like my porn like my comedy: Done by professionals, women who are at the top of their game. So, I like professional ladies who are enjoying themselves. I'm not an amateur person. I want everybody to look good and be good at their jobs," she said, before realizing: "Oh my god! I just remembered my dad's listening to this! Sorry, dad! I just called him this morning and was like, 'I'm gonna be on Stern this morning!' S–t! Sorry, dad! Love you, pop!"
