Out singer Melissa Etheridge believes sex is better since she turned 50.

Etheridge, whose latest studio album This is M.E. arrives on Tuesday, said in a wide-ranging interview with AARP The Magazine that sex after 50 is better.

“The sex is better!” Etheridge, 53, said. “Seriously, I'm healthier and in loving myself I attract a different kind of person now.”

In May, Etheridge, a breast cancer survivor, married Linda Wallem.

She previously was in a domestic partnership that ended badly with actress Tammy Lynn Michaels, with whom she has two children. Etheridge also has two children with former partner Julie Cypher.

“If I could, I would have chosen not to go through cancer or my divorces in public,” she said. “Yet you can't say, 'I'm only gong to let the public see the good stuff.' Whenever I sit down with someone, I need to know that I'm not hiding anything.”

On coming out, Etheridge said her father was “fine” with her sexuality.

“[H]e just wanted me to be happy. His passing propelled me into this place of needing to be who I am, because I wasn't going to be happy any other way,” she said.
