Lady Gaga: I have never not had safe sex

Lady Gaga addresses issues of sexuality in her music and now she's addressing her sex life in the new issue of Grazia magazine.

"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," Gaga tells the glossy, according to the Daily Mail.

Now 24, the "Born This Way" singer admits it wasn't until recently that she began to feel satisfied in the bedroom.

"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," says Gaga, who is dating musician/bar owner Lüc Carl.

Moreover, Gaga - who is currently promoting her M.A.C. Viva Glam lipstick, which benefits HIV and AIDS charities - says she has always played it safe when satisfying her desires.

"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," she says. "Otherwise you’re playing Russian Roulette."

    This is perfectly appropriate. She's got millions of young fans, she's promoting a product that supports treatment of HIV/AIDS. Even if she's lying, it's the right message, but I don't think she is. Educated teens and YAs who are in control of their lives act like this. Welcome to the new world.

    So many people have snarky comments when a celebrity actually says something positive and productive. I'm starting to understand why folks aren't wearing condoma. I wish you could wear an X on your forehead so I'll know who to avoid.

    On what I gather from the quality and maturity of most of the posts on this article, I shudder to think who's hands the collective physical and mental health of this nation will be in. I picture myself cohabiting within a sea of contagiously ill and/or contemptuously self-righteous, violently repressed souls. Truly apocalyptic.
