Zoe Saldana wants to talk about sex -- a lot!

"Love it, love it, love it -- can't live without it! I love sex," the Avatar star, 31, admits in the April issue of Essence. "I love skin. I don't believe the body is something to hide."

In fact, she says that it's not talked about enough.

"I think in American society, we're messing up our kids by taking away the education on awareness of sexuality and replacing it with violence, guns and video games," she says. "We're breeding little criminals."

This isn't the first time the actress -- who has been dating actor Keith Britton for 10 years --has brought up the topic of sex in an interview this month.

"I want to have more sex, travel more, drink more wine and love life," she said in the April issue of Glamour.

But with her career taking off -- she will appear in Takers, Death at a Funeral, The Losers and Burning Palms this year -- she admits those goals are hard to fit in.

"To quote a rapper, 'Mo' money, mo' problems,'" she joked to Glamour. "More work, less time to live."
