Morrissey on Celibacy

morrissey Morrissey In His Own Words: The Singers Best Quotes

“Sex is a waste of batteries.” Melody Maker, 1986

“I’m just simply inches away from a monastery and I feel that perhaps if I wasn’t doing this that I probably would be in one … which of course is a frightening thing to dwell upon.” Picture Disk, 1984

“Obviously I’m interested in sex and every song is about sex. I’m very interested in GENDER. I feel I’m a kind of prophet for the fourth sex. The third sex, even that has been done and it’s failed. All that Marc Almond bit is pathetic. It sounds trite in print but it’s something close to ‘men’s liberation’ that I desire.” Sounds, 1983

“That was the problem with the ‘celibate’ word because they don’t consider for a moment that you’d rather not be, but you just are. I was never a sexual person.”

Who last saw you in your natural state?

“Almost certainly the doctor who brought me into this cruel world.” The Face, 1984
