Adam Levine discusses his Promiscuous sexual past with women
10 hours ago
by HL Staff
From the new 'DETAILS' magazine:
On sex: “‘You know what yoga’s good for?’ Adam Levine asks, pausing in mid-thought as he discusses his healthful lifestyle. He draws to his feet, balances in the private jet’s narrow aisle, points at his crotch, and thrusts his pelvis like a porn star. ‘I’ll tell you what yoga is good for: F***ing,’ he chimes, in a singsong falsetto, then laughs.”
On why he was promiscuous: “There’s two kinds of men. There are men who are f***ing misogynist pigs, and then there are men who just really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”
Oh puh-leeze, Adam.
Stop embarrassing yourself.
You'll suck a dick -- 'fess up!
The bitch is trying way too hard to prove she is straight.
I feel you, player! Let's you and me hit the clubs and score some trim!
"Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”
These comments won't win him any points with the ladies.
Sounds like a plan, Matty @ R3! I'll see you and Adam out later, and we can score some pussy! (Just don't tell Kelly!)
He doesn't care about the ladies, R5.
Dudes, can I tag team some poon with you?
DETAILS magazine is a magazine for guys who suck cock in the dark.
Both DETAILS and Adam try too hard to be straight.
Hey! Adam is very cool. I love to hang out with him and chase after those Victoria Secret models! We do, erm, have loads...of fun.
Yeah,of course Zac can come!
He is 100% straight. I have seen him with the ladies, who love him and he loves them back, just like me.

It has been since its inception. It's basically Vogue for Men, but they have to keep playing up the WE'RE STRAIGHT angle.
Esquire already has some of that market, though Esq readers ARE actually straight douchetards who smoke cigars and date underage girls.
He's 110% straight.
I know of no reason to believe Levine is anything other than straight, I've heard nothing about his male-hookups. There are plenty of slutty straight dudes who like sleeping around, I agree he comes off as a tool but that is nothing new.
The "we're straight' angle turns me off to this magazine. It's a homophobic rag.
I agree with R14. He doesn't ping for me and unlike others, he is not associated with rumors of homosexuality. He also reminds me of other straight musicians who seem kind of douchey.
His brother is gay. He's gay friendly, but he is straight. He also seems like a douche.
I've seen Maroon 5 perform live for a TV taping,(free ticket) and he is a very accomplished musician. I was surprised. The concert was good.
OMG, I so totally agree with you, Adam. Pussy is A-MA-ZING!
I hate the phrase "gay-friendly". It's insulting. Do you think "Jew-friendly" is also as loosely used? Adam is 'Jew-friendly".
R14, get OFF this gay GOSSIP message board, cunt. Seriously. If you don't want to gossip, then what the hell are you doing here? Go away.
No guy who's really straight feels the incessant need to constantly, repeatedly assert it. And he's best friends with Jake Gyllenhaal. There is a math there. Plus the fact he only dates models/beards.
I love the ragging on him in this thread, but I don't think Levine's gay, either. He just seems like an insufferably vain man, who happens to be straight. These (horrible) comments about his promiscuity are not exactly the latest in a long line of comments proclaiming how straight he is. If they were, they would be more suspect.
r20, how on earth would YOU, of all creatures, know how a straight guy feels?
Oh, guys, can I come too??? I have a fake ID, lol
R20 really has no clue if he thinks straight men aren't prone to brag.
Oh my god, this guy is so straight, you can't get anymore straight. Forealz, yo.
R20 seriously is ridiculous. Gay gossip is awesome, talking about the fact that someone has a lack of gap gossip is also what this board is for. There is no point in us talking about what celebrities are gay if you refuse to believe anyone of them could not be.
Hate on Levine for being a douche, the straights can have him.
He is is straight..his brother on the other hand..
R22, you can shove your homophobia. I assume you're the self proclaimed straight guy who trolls this board. I'm sure I'm butcher then you, bitch, especially in bed. I have many straight guy friends...they don't constantly proclaim their 'straightness'. Only closet cases do that. And everyone knows it.
R24...you have no clue. When straight guys brag they don't constantly say, "I'm into girls! I love women! Love, love women!". That's something else entirely. You're the one who's clueless.
R26...bite me. I'm tired of people coming here to declare that gossiping about someone being gay is absurd. Levine is no straighter than Rock Hudson. YOU do not KNOW he's straight. That's the whole point of the closet. To NOT know. Geesh, this site has completely gone to frau hell.
I am gay and femme and never proclaimed my straightness, whatever that means. I couldn't even begin to understand what motivates a straight guy to do anything, and neither could you, sweets. They're a whole separate species. Sounds like you're the one with the internal homophobia/masculinity issues.
If you assume somebody is gay, 99% of the time you are right no matter who denies it - gay or straight. I think this guy is gay myself. BUt, who cares? What's the big deal if this dude is closeted - more to joke about. I also think he's a homophobic douche bag. Who cares about his brother - that doesn't stop somebody from being a homophobic p.o.s.
Is it just me or has the Crazy-Meter here been wrenched up a couple hundred degrees today?
R22, you're making my point. Just because you have no straight male friends doesn't mean that none of us do. And most gay men, having been in the closet, understand the epistemology of the closet. It's closeted gay men who make these extravagant shows of declaring their heterosexuality over and over. Straight guys just talk about sex and what they think is hot...they don't keep qualifying everyone with, "I'm into girls, you know." They don't need to because of heterosexual presumption.
You clearly have NO idea how the CLOSET works, and that's what I'm talking about. You must be a frau.
And no, dearest, I have no "issues" around my sexuality. Happy and proud to be gay and very glad to be out of the closet. You're the one who doesn't understand how guys act when they're closeted. Frau.
Oh and 22/31...I get it...you can't get off on him unless you believe he's straight. That's your self loathing. I don't need to believe he's straight to think he's hot.
[quote]If you assume somebody is gay, 99% of the time you are right no matter who denies it - gay or straight.
Actually, given that about 10% of the population is gay, the odds are 9-to-1 that you're wrong. Wishful thinking does not make a person gay.
As for Levine, I think he's straight and a douchebag. Ditto John Mayer. Neither belongs in the same category as the likes of Taylor Lautner.
Oh, and "Details" is nearly as gay as "Out," and always has been, regardless of how hard they try to push the "metrosexual" ethos. It's straighter than it used to be, granted, since once upon a time it had gay editors in chief and staff, but Dan Peres has been at the helm for eons now (eight or nine years?) and is not only straight but boringly so (yes, I know him casually).
R36, 10% are openly gay - and honest. That's it. The percentage of actual gay or bisexual people is much, much larger. If gay and bi people were born with horns on their forehead, you'd see that I am right.
Wishful thinking? Wrong again.
Oh please, 10% of the adult population is not openly gay. I never really believed that figure. A lot of us live in urban areas with visible gay populations of people who escaped bumfuck to live amongst other gay people, so we're used to seeing other openly gay people on a regular basis. My hunch is that around 4-5% of the population are openly gay, and that another 5% are totally repressed/closeted. I do think that if you include straight-identified people who've experimented with same-sex sex, then the numbers do skyrocket. But 10% out and openly gay? I think not.
Only 5% is closeted? That number is laughable.
You know who else is greatly consumed with the % of gay people who exist, and reduces it to a tiny little fraction of people like R22, does? Pat Robertson. You're in good company, R22. He believes that such a tiny little group of people shouldn't have rights. Who cares about such a tiny little fraction of the population.
I don't know if he's straight, gay or bi because I don't really follow his dating and interviews but as a bi-woman I can tell you that many straight men do brag and I don't think it's just because some are closeted and compensating (a chunk of them definitely are) but for other reasons. It's the ones who lack self confidence and self esteem that do it and that can be for other reasons except for being in denial about sexuality.
After being on this board for 10 years I see not only what differentiates gay men from straight ones but what you guys have in common and that is most men are "Whooores" if they can afford to be. Not everyone of course but many either are or wish they were.
I understand why people think he sounds gay and overcompensating and he might well be, though.

Wtf does a woman giving birth getting surgically cut from her V to her A have to do with being in the closet?
R14, I'm open to the possibility that Adam is straight since I don't know him personally and can't be sure, but to me he has always pinged, and I would also argue he may have a hint of gay voice.
r44 I think his voice is the major thing that makes people think he might be gay, lol.
[quote]As for Levine, I think he's straight and a douchebag. Ditto John Mayer. Neither belongs in the same category as the likes of Taylor Lautner.
Didn't John Mayer admit to Perez Hilton he's had a penis in his mouth?
I've said this before. My sister slept with him. No idea if he's closeted or not, but he certainly is able to, and does, fuck women.
He's also a huge pothead.
Yeah but it's ancient history now, r47, you've been saying the same thing on DL for about 10 years now, bless your heart.
I validly take your point tho'. But bi and gay men have been known to sleep with women as they work out who they are. That said, Levine might be straighter than straight. I just get a beep on the gaydar when he comes into view.
r47 and what did she say about his skillzzz and dick size?
R48 is right that gay & bi men have sex with women. Lance Bass talked about having sex with a woman on Oprah. And Ricky Martin says he has been intimate with women. Then there's former New Jersey Governor McGreevey. And many others.
It was reported today that he is dating his ex girlfriend's best friend. They have been seen making out all over town. What an asshole.
How is that different than thousands of other people who screw around in similar situations?
R47, this happened in 2006, I think. Not 10 years, but you're right. I have mentioned it before on the DL, as I stated in my post. And I was just adding it to the discussion, as it seemed relevant. Feel free to ignore it.
Trust me, I have learned to RARELY post any dirt I might know about a celeb (which honestly isn't much anymore). DL just doesn't want to hear it, esp. if it doesn't gel with the "everyone is gay" wishful thinking.
R49, she said he was average in terms of dick size, but very good in bed.
Does he eat pussy, R53?
He loves them so much because when things start getting boring or 'too real', he dumps them for a fresh new sparkly thang. He lives in a fantasy world where women are goddesses.
I remember when he was on Piers Morgan last year, he and Piers kept on going on about how lucky Adam is too be with loads of beautiful women.
i used to think he was cute...
"“There’s two kinds of men. There are men who are f***ing misogynist pigs, and then there are men who just really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me."
Which one? Both?

*COUGH* Wanker! *COUGH*
Sorry, there must have been something in my throat.
Whenever guys describe women as "amazing" you know they are about age 15 mentally. They quickly change girlfriends when the mist fades, and the "girls" (never "women") go from "amazing" to "bitches".
Remember Russell Brand's passive-aggressive posting of Katy Perry waking up disheveled? It screamed, "Waaah, why can't you be amazing in the mornings, too?!".
r60 is drunk.
The point is, Adam Levine can be bisexual I he wanted to.
I thought Adam enjoyed kissing dudes more?
[quote]Whenever guys describe women as "amazing" you know they are about age 15 mentally.
I tend to view it as a sign that they are in the closet.
his current model beard is scanky.......really fugly.
No matter how arrogant and douchey he can come off as, I still so fucking would.
This reminds of me of Kathy Lee Gifford who was constantly saying on air what a great marriage she had and everything is magical ,and then boom! Frank gets caught with another woman.
Another example, the Smiths, Will and Jada Smith saying how their marriage is so amazing on and on, yet there are tons of information out there that say otherwise ,and that Will is a big fairy.
When people are truly self confident in their sexuality, marriage, famliy life, etc. they don't have to go on and on to prove anything to anyone because they just live it!
Mick Jagger was interviewed once and he said publishers came to him offering him an enormous amount of money to reveal his sexual past in an autobiography. Mick said no way! he said he thought it was just completely tacky to tell everyone about his sexual affairs.
I once spoke to a friend of my famliy who is a counselor,and I asked him why do people go on and on about their sex lives or marriage and other things being so perfect. He said that is a neon sign of major insecurity.
what better way to hide than to constantly be "dating" models and other celebrities....big publicity onhow straight he is and a big time lothario......he's selling it, do you buy it?
Whenever he's been on CNN's Piers Morgan, Adam & Piers always talk about how many women Adam has been with.
If Adam Levine is a straight womanizer, he is a piece of shit! He says he loves women ,yet according to him, loving women is synonymous with being a womanizer? So using women for sexual gratification is a guy who loves women? He sounds like such a lunatic slime ball ,and he doesn't sound all that bright either. Hey Adam that is called Lusting after women! dumass! bedding women and then dumping them moving on to the next one that comes along is a man who is definitely is one of various examples of being a misogynist. A guy who appreciates women being his intellectual equal ,and who respects women as human beings not as human sex toys is a guy who loves women!
I think his statement is actually embarrassing.
R70, I saw one of those interviews and after a way I changed the channel because it is so ridiculous to the point of total absurdity. He was on Chelsea Lately show and he said the same thing! Who cares about who the guy is screwing over and over again. Something is truly wrong with him.
Did he say anything particular on Chelsea Lately?
He said was going on about how his girlfriend at the time, Annie, is so hot and he was going on and on about her to the point the guy needed a cold show.
There's probably more indecision about Adam Levine than anyone else we inspect this thoroughly. My own conclusion is that while he is very appealing (to me anyway,) and clangs like Notre Dame on Easter Sunday and would make a fabulous homosexual, he just isn't gay.
Remember the time Adam got very protective of Jake Gyllenhaal when someone said Jake was gay?
[quote]When people are truly self confident in their sexuality, marriage, famliy life, etc. they don't have to go on and on to prove anything to anyone because they just live it!
There are lots and lots of actors/actresses and musicians for whom sexuality doesn't come up often or ever because they just do not bang on and on about it to the point where they start placing question marks over their own heads.
Why Levine feels it necessary to weave it into every conversation and come off as a fratboy I have no idea.
Maybe he's scared of aging, or being irrelevant, maybe he is hiding that, as an older man, he is bi or gay because you know, gay bro and we can't have TWO of them (OMG!). Well actually we can but maybe he feels the need to hide that?
I dunno, he seems really weird to me, like a teenager who thinks people are actually interested in his sex life. If all that defines you is your libido with women or whatever then it's a pretty poor waste of a life imo.
[quote]Remember the time Adam got very protective of Jake Gyllenhaal when someone said Jake was gay?
I surely do and I'd bet the cheque was 'in the post' faster than Usain Bolt out of the blocks.

Oh, god. I'm dying laughing. I can't believe no one caught this until R79. And to add, it's an episiotomy and the woman isn't cut to her anus.

R80 despite his name, Levine claims he's not jewish. I can tell you most jews upon seeing his name would have assumed he was jewish though lol
Anyway I find him really annoying. In addition to having a weak ass voice and being a sucky live performer (he has so many pitch problems) I never found him sexy. His face is sometimes on the good looking side but his body is totally average and he always looks like he needs to shower. I would never hit it if I had the chance.
I would hit on him anytime, any day. He is hot, sexy and closeted.
His brother is gay and in 2002 posted on a gay escort sight. He lived in NYC then and would hustle outside Bdway theatres. I know several who hired him.
I don't find him hot or sexy...and I don't get gay vibes from him. I think he's better looking than an average guy but not gorgeous and his body ain't hot.
Not Jewish? I used to know the family. I am certain that his brother Michael was raised in the Jewish faith. Pretty sure his dad is Jewish. Adam may have chosen a different path, but as I remember the family was Jewish. Does it make a difference?
I know an actress who dated Adam before he achieved fame. She has never said much except that he didn't have much to offer. I took that as meaning his size.
I agree that the way this article reads, Adam seems to be over compensating for a lack of something.
Adam Levine is of Jewish ancestry, practicing or not.
