Enrique Iglesias - Enrique Iglesias: Sex is important

Enrique Iglesias thinks sex is vital to relationships.

The Latino star, who has been in an on/off relationship with tennis player Anna Kournikova since 2001, believes love doesn't work without the physical side of things.

Quizzed which of the two things in his new album's title, 'Sex + Love', he couldn't live without, he pondered: ''That's a tough one! Some couples would say that sex isn't important but I tend to disagree with that. Sex is extremely important! Sex keeps you alive... but obviously without love... I think it's a balance of both.

''I think too much sex can probably be bad, but just love by itself can be difficult - if you're in a relationship that can be difficult to survive. I think you need both.''

Enrique's music has become more risqué in his last two albums and he insists his X-rated lyrics and sexy videos - his latest one for 'I'm a Freak' sees him caressing a girl's bottom - are simply an honest reflection of reality.

He told Attitude magazine: ''If you'd told me 10 years ago that I was going to sing a song called 'Tonight (I'm F**king You)', I would have told you that you were absolutely nuts! But when I sang that song I personally fell in love with it. I thought it was so straightforward, so direct and so real.

''How many of us have thought about saying that to a person but not had the guts to do it! I think there's an honesty to that. That's why I called the album 'Sex + Love', because sex can be fun, it can be raw, but sometimes one thing it's not is honest.''

''Some people might say, 'Oh that's so immature that you would say that' or 'Why are there so many naked people at that party going crazy and drinking?' But I'm like, 'Dude, that's just part of reality!' ''
