Lady Gaga: I didn’t enjoy sex
Lady Gaga says she didn't enjoy having sex until she was in a monogamous relationship.
The eccentric pop star has confessed she found lovemaking unpleasant but is now satisfied with her boyfriend Luc Carl. She originally dated Luc when she 19 and the pair rekindled their relationship in June last year. Gaga says she only began to like having sex a few years ago when she had fallen in love and was feeling confident about herself.
"I never actually enjoyed sex until two years ago. It was a proper monogamous relationship in which I felt free enough to trust and I had enough self love," she revealed in an interview with Grazia. "Sex is the ultimate expression of vulnerability and for me it was important to know that it was a proper relationship so it was sex as a source of love and nothing else."
The 24-year-old singer is currently promoting her MAC Viva Glam lipstick, which is raising money for HIV and AIDS charities. Gaga has been campaigning about the importance of safe sex and insists it is something she always practises. She has also discussed the first time she had sex, admitting she wasn't ready for it.
"I didn't lose my virginity until I was 17. But I have to say even then I wasn't ready and it was an absolutely terrible experience. It wasn't good at all," she added. "I have never not had safe sex, I have always asked a guy to be tested and to use protection, which was always my rule. Otherwise you're playing Russian Roulette."
Gaga went on to talk about her stunt at the recent Grammy Awards, where she arrived on the red carpet inside a giant egg. She claims she spent several days in the vessel before her performance of new single Born This Way, but is refusing to give any further details away in case her followers try and replicate her idea and endanger their health.
"Three days, honestly. I stayed in the vessel for three days. I can't talk about it. I don't want my fans to think about copying, let's just say it was important as part of my rebirth to stay in there for three days," she explained. 'I have an idea or an idea comes and I just go with it, like my vessel at the Grammys. That was so perfect, the whole idea of my next album and single, Born This Way and then the vessel ... or the egg as everyone kept calling it."
The star also revealed her battle with Lupus and her hectic work schedule has left her feeling exhausted and she often sleeps for hours to recover.
