OSCAR-winner Nicole Kidman is pleased with single life - because it means she can still enjoy the pleasures of making love.

The DOGVILLE star has been relatively single since splitting with TOM CRUISE in 2001, despite being linked to Robbie Williams, Adrien Brody and more recently Lenny Kravitz.

Kidman says she's still searching for the right man to settle down with - but in the mean time she's enjoying sex.

She explains, "Sex doesn't require love - it's a strong force even without romance. Sex is an important part of life.

"I'm a perfectionist. I just can't make any mistakes. Before I get involved with the wrong man I'd rather be alone."
