Lara Bingle has peeled the gear off again - this time for GQ Australia.

The magazine goes on sale next Monday and has a shout-out to Bingle's fashion designer boyfriend Gareth Moody, who she calls her "escape".

"During the week, the paparazzi are full on, but most Sundays I can pretty much run free and the paps don't follow me too much at night," she tells the mag.

"Need to keep some things sacred and off limits. Gareth is that escape in my life. He takes me away from the craziness. If I didn't have that, I'd go insane."

As for her show, which is on somewhat of a ratings decline, the model says she signed up for the reality treatment so the Australian public could get a look at the "real" Lara.

"I'm portrayed in a certain light in Australia and there's a lot of frustration that comes with that for me," she said.

"The biggest incentive for doing this show was to make people realise who I really am."
