Howard Stern Says Hooking Up After Getting Divorced Was “Empty”

“After my divorce, I realized, ‘Oh, wow, I can go have sex.’ And I was running around, picking up women. Then all of a sudden, it dawned on me that I really didn’t need that much sex. I just wanted somebody with me every minute. I was using women as a surrogate mother. When I tapped into that, it suddenly became very childish behavior. And really, was it so great f***ing every night? They’re using me for my fame, I’m using them for their beauty, and the whole f***ing thing seemed empty.”

A highly evolved Howard Stern tells Rolling Stone about his relationship to women after separating from his wife in 1999 and getting divorced two years later. Luckily, his story has a happy ending. Soon after, he met Beth Ostrosky and they tied the knot in 2008. [Huffington Post]
