"Everything that truly makes us happy is quite simple: love, sex and food!"
"Sex is a bad thing because it rumples the clothes."
"I wish I had invented sex."
"I was always very open-minded about sex, and I'm glad that I still am ... It was never dirty to me. After all, God gave us the equipment and the opportunity. There's the old saying, 'If God had meant for us to fly, he'd have given us wings.' Well, look at what he did give us."
"Sex is like washing your face—just something you do because you have to. Sex without love is absolutely ridiculous. Sex follows love, it never precedes it."
"I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?"
"I think sex is overrated. I don't have sex appeal and I know it. As a matter of fact, I think I'm rather funny-looking. My teeth are funny, for one thing, and I have none of the attributes usually required for a movie queen, including the shapeliness."
"You never have sex the way people do in the movies. You don't do it on the floor, you don't do it standing up, you don't always have all your clothes off, you don't happen to have on all the sexy lingerie. You know, if anybody ever ripped my clothes, I'd kill them."
"Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature."
"Sex is God's joke on human beings."
"I stayed in submission to my husband, and he allowed me to do anything I wanted to. I felt like I was lucky to have that kind of romance."
"Everyone probably thinks that I'm a raving nymphomaniac, that I have an insatiable appetite, when the truth is I'd rather read a book."
"They may call me a sinner, but I am at peace with myself."
"I like my coffee like I like my men. I don't drink coffee."
"I need sex for a clear complexion, but I'd rather do it for love."
