Miranda Kerr believes it's OK for women to date a number of men at the same time as long as they don't sleep with any of them.
Miranda Kerr thinks it's fine for a woman to date multiple men as long as they don't sleep with any of them.
The 31-year-old star - who split from Orlando Bloom in 2013 after three years of marriage - advises against having sex on a first date because she thinks it's better to go out with a number of potential suitors to keep your options open.
When asked for her advice about sex on a first date, Miranda - who has written two books for young females, 'Treasure Yourself' and 'Empower Yourself' - said: ''My philosophy is that until you get to know them it's better not to, because energetically as a woman you get attached.
''So you're better off to go on a few dates and see if you want to get attached or not.
''If you are not sleeping with someone, then I think it's OK to go on a date with this one and that one.
''Men don't want to be disrespected, and women feel the best when they feel cherished.
''So if a woman is feeling cherished, she will respect a man, and if a man's feeling respected, he will cherish a woman. It doesn't need to be complicated.
''You know, for a long time I had it the wrong way. I was constantly doing, doing. Giving, giving for my partner. But what works is not feeling like you have to be everything to everyone.''
Miranda is currently single but insists she is not looking for a boyfriend because the only man she has eyes for at the moment is her and Orlando's four-year-old son Flynn, although when she is on the hunt for a guy she doesn't like to do the chasing.
She said: ''I'll go on a date here and there if it works. But at this point my priority is my son. I'm not looking for a relationship. I'm just not.
''I believe in the man chasing the girl, but that's just me personally.
''I think a woman should respond [to text messages from a man] but not reach out.''
While the brunette stunner recommends women wear sexy underwear to give them an ''extra boost of confidence'' when they are dating, she would love to be naked all the time if she didn't have anyone taking her picture.
Speaking to Harper's Bazaar magazine, she added: ''I love taking my shoes off and being in the grass. Or sunbaking naked.
''I wish I could go skinny-dipping in the ocean. If I didn't have to worry about anyone taking my picture, I'd totally be out there. I quite like to be naked.''
The full interview with Miranda appears in the February 2015 issue of Harper's Bazaar.
