Miley Cyrus: "Sex Is a Beautiful, Magical Thing"

When it comes to Miley Cyrus, nothing is off-limits.

When the 19-year-old appeared on Lifetime's The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet Thursday, Cyrus explained why having frank discussions about sex shouldn't be considered taboo.

"Girls who base how much they're worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad," Cyrus said. "Because sex is actually really beautiful."

She added: "It's the only way that we create and it's the only way that the world keep going. It's ignorant to not talk to your kids about it or make it seem like it's not as cool or magical as it actually is. If [kids] have a TV, they know what sex is. Everyone knows, so educate them."

"Let them know that they wouldn't be here without it, and it is a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it is when you connect with somebody and it isn't how much your worth," Cyrus continued. "Your worth isn't based on that. Your worth is based on how you feel about yourself."

Cyrus -- who's been dating Liam Hemsworth, 22, since 2009 -- also shared some advice for young girls hoping to build their self-esteem.

"Just be who you are, and that is where your style will come from, and your attitude, and your spirituality, and your sexuality," she said. "Because it's coming from a place of love."

Thought she took a vow of chastity until marriage.

And she's sending the wrong message. Sex in and of itself is not 'magickal' and 'wonderful'. It has the potential to be when all the right emotions and connections are there, but that can be very rare. My fear is girls are gonna start having sex cuz Miley said it was 'magickal.'

Yeah back when she was on disney lol. But I think she meant it like its not a bad thing that its only natural and you shouldnt feel ashamed about it and the way you feel.

Yeah but 13, 14, 15 year old girls aren't going to understand that. They are only going to hear wha she said. Thankfully my 15 yo DD can think for herself and does what she wants but many many can't.

Miley is a grown adult now, she can say what she wants, especially on adult topics. Shes not really a disney star anymore, nor do I think she wants to be known as that either. Its better than a message of 'men only want you if you put out' like a lot of celebs seem to show

In the words of Marilyn Monroe “Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”

 Do younger teen girls care about Miley anymore, now that she's not a Disney princess? 

I think she's trying to separate herself from her Disney image.  I do appreciate that she's telling girls to become educated about sex and that not being a virgin doesn't diminish their value, and maybe these points reflect the struggles she's had personally.  Wish she'd been a little more heavy on the education aspect of it, though.

I kind of agree with her. When I have sex talks with my girls I kind of say the same thing. Don't gage your worth on what a person can take, gage it on what YOU want to share. It can be a beautiful thing when you are truly ready and have the right person. It can be an ugly thing that leaves you feeling worthless and used if you aren't ready and with the wrong person. We have to stop acting like its ugly though kids are curious making believe its bad isn't going to stop teen stds and pregnancy. What might is good conversation, honesty, and teaching self worth. I think that's what she's saying.

I don't think so she did say it comes from a place of love but I do see what you're saying. We are adults and interpret it with adult minds so yeah I can see some young girls taking it the wrong way. I really wish she elaborated on it because she has some truly good points, it just needs to be taken to a notch kids can completely understand.
