Miley Cyrus: 'Sex Is A Beautiful Thing'
Former child star urges parents to be more open with their kids...
Miley Cyrus has described sex as "a beautiful thing" and encouraged parents to be more open with their offspring on the subject.
Speaking on new US chat show The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet, the singer and actress claimed that not talking about sex could lead to youngsters approaching it wrongly.
The 19-year-old said: "The girls that really base how much they're worth on the sexual favours they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad. Because sex is actually really beautiful.
"It's the only way we create, and it's the only way the world keeps going. So it's ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or [not] make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is.
"[Kids] have a TV, so they know what sex is. So educate them and let them know... it's a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it's when you connect with somebody.
"And it isn't how much you're worth. Your worth isn't based on that, your worth is based on how you feel about yourself."
