Superstar Madonna has banned sex and bad language from her Los Angeles home - because she wants her two young children to have a decent upbringing.

The MATERIAL GIRL - who famously revelled in controversy during the '80s and early '90s - now insists on clean-living to benefit her daughter LOURDES, seven, and ROCCO, three.

An insider says, "Madonna laughs about it really, but she has banned sex from her swanky pad in Los Angeles.

"She declares it a sex-free zone and feels it's not right for kids to hear and see things they don't understand."

Another source tells British newspaper the DAILY STAR, "Madonna has a lot of good morals and when it comes to bad language, she just won't have it."
