The April 2010 issue of Essence hits stands today with “Avatar” star Zoe Saldana featured on the cover.

The actress “gets real on power, sex and her guilty pleasures” in the issue’s lead article, titled “From A to Zoe.”

In fact, the 31-year-old goes on and on and on about the wonders of getting it on.

“Love it, love it, love it – can’t live without it! I love sex,” she says. “I love skin. I don’t believe the body is something to hide.”

Saldana, who has been dating actor Keith Britton for the past 10 years, says sex is something to discuss and learn about, even from a young age.

“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.”
