Katy Perry Dishes on Her Sex Life & Reveals How Long She's Gone Without Getting Any

When you have the opportunity to be interviewed by Cosmopolitan, ya gotta be ready to open up about your sex life — or at least, allude to it. The dynamo of a ladies' magazine is the go-to for candid sex talk, so we shouldn't be surprised that its most recent interviewee gave us some personal info. In fact, Katy Perry told revealed how long she's gone without sex — and no, the answer isn't "up until I finished my career as a Christian singer."

Perry's words are getting across the entire globe — she's the first global Cosmo cover girl ever — so ladies in multiple languages will have the opportunity to read all that Perry has divulged.

So that sex tidbit? She actually hasn't gone super long — like decades upon centuries (not that that would be possible, given her age, but still)— without it. She said:

Maybe six months or a year. I don't stay single for long.

Which may seem long to some people (surviving dry spells is never fun), but not to her. And hey, at least she acknowledged that she's often paired off with a dude. Why does she think that is?

I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst. I'm not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I'm not super strict. For me, the most important thing about sex is connection.

So what can we gauge from this, other than the fact that carrying around rose quartz apparently attracts men like Russell Brand and John Mayer? That talking candidly about sex and Professor Higgins from My Fair Lady apparently fit together quite seamlessly.
