Courtney Love has chatted about how her years of taking drugs ruined her sex life.
The Hole star spent years battling addiction, but claims not to have taken narcotics since 2005. Now, in a new interview with sobriety journal The Fix, she has revealed the true consequences of her battles with heroin and crack.
Love said: “All the drugs just neutered me. When I was on drugs, I felt like this nunnish, non-sexual person. After I stopped doing drugs I started to fuck like a bunny! Before that I suffered from years of celibacy. I was on this whole Morrissey kick, no masturbation, no romance, no nothing!”
She added: “The store was completely closed. My self-imposed chastity was only supposed to last for two years, but it went on for three years, eight months and six days. My addiction is just about feeling comfortable in my own skin. I don’t like losing control. You couldn’t pay me a billion dollars to take marijuana. I don’t really like coke anymore. I’m scared of ecstasy.”
However, Love admitted that she has one remaining drug fantasy. She said: “The one drug I’d like to try one day is ayahuasca, which should be mandatory for everybody. It’s apparently this crazy tea that gives you these intense hallucinations. Everyone who takes it sees a wise old black man who takes you on a wild journey. I’m not going to name names, but everyone who takes it sees the same black guy. I’m not kidding you. Everyone!”
