When did bedroom talk become so public? That's the question one prominent columnist wants to know.
In her popular DailyMail.com column, Meghan McCain rips several top-line celebrities for being a little too forthright — even quite graphic — about their intimate lives.
"American culture is pornified," she writes.
Meghan's comments come in the wake of a recent Gwyneth Paltrow interview in which she opened up about her sex life with exes Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt, whom she dated in the '90s. Around the same time, Rachel Bilson and Meghan Trainor openly told raunchy and salacious tales about their likes and dislikes in the bedroom.
The former "The View" co-host also ripped Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, for speaking about their sex life on "Live with Kelly and Mark."
"Everything, everywhere from the Met Gala red carpet to morning talks shows are about skin … and shock factor," the conservative mother of two writes. "I consider myself a sex-positive person. I'm open and honest about likes and dislikes, but with my husband, not all of daytime television viewing America."
The "Bad Republican" author argues that conversations related to sex should happen, but without the megaphone of the media.
"For all the time that I've spent in the public eye, I've never delved deeply into these topics, because I am protective of my personal life. But I was also raised in a conservative, waspy family, where – quite frankly – sex lives weren't openly flaunted," Meghan says, adding that she's "happy" to havee set an example of "modesty" for her daughters.
"Yes, strong women are confident in their sexuality. But that doesn't mean that they should be pushed and prodded by society into wearing it on their sleeves. Self-control is the first step toward self-respect," Meghan opines. "We're now living in a time of extreme overexposure. It robs young people of their innocence, and it deprives them of the experience of exploring the mysteries of life on their own terms."
In other words, Meghan argues, these comments and intimate confessions are all TMI.
