Cameron Diaz, the leggy, sexy, serial dating movie star, recently confessed to loving porn on national television. Diaz appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show to promote her upcoming movie Bad Teacher, in which she stars with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel.
Diaz, who's had her fair share of boyfriends over the years including Matt Dillon, Jared Leto and currently Alex Rodriquez, has made her love of sex public before. She credits having lots of sex with keeping her looking young. But this very public porn revelation is sure to get her some haters. But also to win her some new fans. Like me.
She's my hero.
Why? Because she's up-front about love, relationships, sex, and now porn. Specifically, in-room porn, the kind you can discretely order and enjoy from the privacy of your hotel room. And we know she travels quite a bit.
I've been known to travel too and totally get where she's coming from with this. Pornography can have a place in a loving, monogamous relationship. For me, if it's soft-core, porn is just something different to spice up my sex life with my husband, like incorporating sex toys. It doesn't take away from the sanctity of our marriage. It adds to our intimacy.
Diaz's honesty is refreshing. She's a woman who has the self confidence to live her life how she wants without caring what other people say. And there will be those who criticize her choices, saying she’s trashy, classless and just looking for attention. Well, maybe she is looking for attention. She got mine. And I say more power to her.
We should all be a bit more like her. Upfront and comfortable with our sexuality. Not caring what our critics say, being secure in our life choices. Especially admitting to the fact that we love fried pickles.
Do you applaud Cameron Diaz's honesty?
