Steven Tyler is well known for being a ladies man. Even former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler was recently quoted as saying "After seeing Steven Tyler's rig ... with five girls hands wrapped around it? I'm lucky if I take my clothes off at all after that."

But in his New York Times bestselling autobiography "Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?" the singer has gone into startling detail on his sex life, saying he's even tried gay sex but "didn't dig it," according to Nme.

He wrote: "Gay sex just doesn't do it for me. I tried it one time when I was younger, but I just didn't dig it."

He went on to describe how his entorage would ensure he had "clean girls" showered and waiting for him after the gig.

"As dirty as my mind is, my body's pretty clean," he wrote. "Kelly [from the Aerosmith entourage] always made sure the girls were in the shower when I got in the room. I liked my pulchritude pristine! I can't kiss a girl that's been stage diving with 500 other guys."

The book talks in similarly candid detail about being bullied at school, his children and his life as a rock star. We previously reported that Harper Collins paid more than $2 million for the right to publish the story, and with the book at #2 on the New York Times list, it looks to have been a worthy investment.

    question... why do we need to know this and why would he tell us this in the first place...

    "Gay sex just doesn't do it for me. I tried it one time when I was younger, but I just didn't dig it."
    Well atleast his not totally gay. If he was gay he would have totally dug it, and would've had clean guys. Lol.

    In a related story, Steven Tyler will release his second single "Too Much Information" on 6/9.

    i have a theory that steven tyler actually died sometime in the late 70's to early 80's. the "thing" you see now is either some sort of cyborg made of mostly collogen and botox, or some sort of zombie-like being

    Anyone remember when he actually made (decent)music? Nope, me either.

    When your getting as much as he is, I think you can admit to having gay sex once.

    He said Dude looked like a lady so he had some Love in his elevator but it made him Walk this way so he felt Jaded and decided to Dream on about Pink.

You do know that people who've showered can still carry STDs right? Or have you been enjoying a bit too much of Bush junior's 'abstinence sex-ed'... Also 'stinky twats' really man? As a woman, hearing stuff like that is seriously nauseating.
    The showering has nothing to do with gonorrhea. It's related to the "sweaty" part. Skin-on-skin contact with a sweaty person and not showering causes staph infections. And since Steven was worrying about cleanliness anyway, I assume his guys checked the girls for STDs in some way, and that he wore a condom. And yes, "stinky twat". As a man, it's nauseating to smell one. It's always best to shower, douche, use a baby wipe, whatever you gotta do before sex.

    I have to laugh at some of the comments here regarding how Tyler organized his post-concert orgies. First, a lot of guys start playing guitar or get into bands in order to pull chicks. Dave Murray, for example, said in one interview that his chief motivation for learning guitar was to use it to get girls. And he is far from being the only one. As for the objection to "organized sex," yeah, it is like his roadies became a kind of Domino's for poon, but a tour is kind of like a forced march through a country and you get used to doing everything on a schedule. Besides, assembly lines are as American as anti-intellectualism (I could say apple pie, but that was actually invented in England). A lot of bands did stuff like that. Def Leppard, Van Halen and Poison are three notorious examples off the top of my head. The thing that surprises me about Tyler, though, is the lack of paternity suits. There are a lot of women out there more than willing to use their wombs as slot machines in order to take the lazy person's way to financial security. He's gotta be wrapping his schvanz, so he is at least having sort of safe sex (condoms will not prevent you from getting herpes).

    Can anyone take a look at Steven Tyler and really think he's never bummed a dude?

    I'm pretty sure you're not interpreting his comment right. He's (obviously) saying that it's really disturbing that he regularly had organized sex with women after each show. It's almost like prostitution in the sense that it's not natural, but all set up, but he wouldn't even have to pay 'cause he's Steven ****ing Tyler.

    I didn't know gay sex was one of those "Don't knock it till you try it" kinda things....
    Denjario
    Well... damn. I don't think I've laughed that hard at a headline in a long time. And I find it extra funny how casual it is.

    um... ever heard of bisexuality? guys can be bi/bi-curious too. there's a total double standard with this stuff. guy experimented with other dudes? "thats horrible and wrong and disgusting" a girl experiments with girls? not only is it "hot" (which, yeah, i agree, it's pretty damned awesome.
    Mobby32 wrote: Or, in other news. joan jett talks about how she digged having gay sex. there heres a nice image for you
    kudos to this guy) but it's also almost never considered "wrong". you can be physically attracted to both genders and it doesn't make you gay or straight. that's why there's, ya know, term for the mid ground
    i_eat_souls
    I wondered how it happened...you think he was going down the line of his freshly showered and lemony clean smelling poon offerings and just thought "****it, im gonna bang a guy," you think he deliberately thought about the pros and cons of man loving, or do you think kelly just screwed up and let a dude slip in (everyone knows how gay looking rock fans used to dress) and Tyler was just in a hurry a didn't notice til to late

    Some things CAN be kept secret. Am I the only one who 'digs' privacy nowadays? I like my idols to be mysterious and reclusive

    Thinking about Steven Tyler having sex in any capacity is disgusting to me, so I could really have done without this article. Man? Woman? Not relevant. Steven's just old.
