There were times when Tina Turner went without sex for a year at time, partly because she was terrified of how her partners might react to her wigs in bed.
“I was never one of those women who had to have sex no matter what,” Turner, 78, wrote in her upcoming memoir “My Love Story,” excerpted by People. “There have been times when I’ve gone up to a year without it, to be honest.”
“Don’t laugh, but I’ve always been a little nervous about starting a relationship with a new man because I didn’t know how my wig would be received,” the “Proud Mary” singer, born Anna Mae Bullock, confessed in the tome. “As much as I loved the convenience and easy beauty, I always ran the risk of meeting a man who might have a problem becoming romantically involved with Tina, with her bountiful hair and glamorous trimmings, but waking up with unadorned Anna Mae. What if he were disappointed by the real me?”
Thankfully, she didn’t have to worry about any of that with her current husband, Erwin Bach (who gave her a kidney), though she went without sex for a year before meeting him.
“I have never been a sex-driven person, it has never been a priority for me. After my first marriage, I didn’t have many men in my life, sex was not important. I didn’t sleep around. I was celibate for a year at a time until I met Erwin,” Turner told The Daily Mail over the weekend.
“My heart suddenly started to beat BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, drowning out all other sounds,” Turner wrote (via The Daily Mail) of meeting Bach, 62, for the first time. “So this is what they call love at first sight.”
In previous excerpts from Turner’s “My Love Story,” she admitted that she dreaded sex with her first husband, Ike Turner, because it was often accompanied by physical abuse.
She likened sex with Ike to “a kind of rape.”
Ike denied ever abusing Tina beyond “slapping” her.
