Playboy: You’re a trucker, which is kind of funny. Many people don’t think of women as skilled drivers.
Nelley: That’s the stereotype, but I’m an exception. I can back up an 18-wheeler.
Playboy: You also look nothing like most truckers.
Nelley: I know. It’s a male-dominated field.
Playboy: Yes, often very large males.
Nelley: Life on the road isn’t always very healthy, but I try to stay away from diner food.
Playboy: What do you haul?
Nelley: I tow luxury cars, mostly Lamborghinis and Bentleys. I joke that it’s as close as I’ll ever get to driving a Bentley.
Playboy: How do you get through the long shifts?
Nelley: A lot of coffee and energy drinks.
Playboy: When did you first decide to be a trucker?
Nelley: One time my friend and I were having coffee—see, I told you—and these two guys started to hit on us. It turned out they were truckers and needed a place to stay. I ended up dating one and riding shotgun with him on trips, which led to being his relief driver. We broke up, but I stuck with the road.
Playboy: His “relief driver.” What does that mean? Sounds as if it might be kinky.
Nelley: I guess it might, but it just means that when he got tired I would take the wheel.
Playboy: Have you ever flashed someone on the road?
Nelley: Oh yes, I sure have.
Playboy: Have you ever had sex in the sleeper cab?
Nelley: Of course! But I can do you one better: I had sex once in the cab while I was driving.
