Courtney Love looks her best after "good sex".

The Hole rocker - the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - believes she radiates beauty after she has been satisfied between the sheets.

She said: "I look my best after good sex - like we all do."

The 46-year-old musician enjoys lovemaking but she insists she doesn't like to have one-night stands because she can't separate her emotions from sex.

She added to the UK edition of Elle magazine: "Among the things I'm not very good at include casual sex, knitting, sewing, giving up smoking and playing hard to get when it's most important."

Courtney - who is dating hotelier ANDRE BALAZS - prefers to be in a committed relationship rather than play the dating game.

She explained; "My philosophy on love is once I love someone I always love them. I'm possibly the most separate from my public image as any celebrity that has ever lived. In fact, I'm outrageously wholesome. I've even been told I'm a bit prudish."
