SHAKIRA, the She-Wolf singer, insists that sexual desire has more of an impact on the world than religion and believes people need to give in to their natural urges for the good of humanity.
She said: "I do think libido is the engine of the world.
"Forward or backwards. For good or ill. Sometimes when we repress our libido we regress.
"When we were in the Dark Ages, it was a question of humanity somehow managing to forget about itself.
"We put God in the centre of society, and people forgot about their own nature and desires. There was a huge deal of repression."
Shakira said as she got older, she was becoming increasingly comfortable with herself and her desires.
"Every day now I discover something new. Go through phases in which I feel much more in touch with my feminine side, in ways I never thought possible," she said.
"I'm letting the woman inside of me speak, the desires of this woman, speak as loud as they can."
Shakira also believes society is changing to be more accepting but admits even she was surprised when she got positive feedback from an elderly nun over the raunchy video for her single She-Wolf. - Bang
