BLUE star Duncan James has rubbished reports he frequently seduces women to satisfy his cravings - insisting his sex drive is "slowing down".

The ALL RISE singer - who has been linked to a series of beauties since the British boyband rocketed to fame - admits he was highly sexually active in his teens, but now all he wants is to find love and friendship with a woman.

He says, "I used to have a really high sex drive but I'm slowing down now. I'm nearly 25 and I think men peak at 18. I lost my virginity just before my 18th birthday and for the next two years I had loads of girlfriends.

"Now, it's not just about sex - it's more about compassion and friendship. I didn't care who I was with before, but I'm not like that now."
