Howard Stern's Divorce Led to 'Much Sex'

Howard Stern is on the cover of the latest Rolling Stone magazine. Some tidbits from the issue:

"I was totally neurotic.....I knew things weren't right, and I said, 'Gee, where am I going to get some answers?' I had never been a guy to turn to religion but then as my marriage was coming to an end, I needed help to explain it to my children and make sense of it all.....Because once you are a divorced guy, being a father is a whole different thing."

Then, the lightbulb:

"After my divorce, I realized, 'Oh wow, I can go have sex,'" he said. "And I was running around, picking up women. Then all of the sudden, it dawned on me that I really didn't need that much sex. I just wanted somebody with me ever minute. I was using women as a surrogate mother. When I tapped into that, it suddenly became very childish behavior."

On his new wife, Beth Ostrosky:

"Things changed when we got married," he said. "Everyone before was like, 'Oh, are you Howard Stern's blond bimbo that hangs out with him?' But suddenly, when we were married, it was like, 'Oh, this is Howard's wife.' And that was important to me. Part of the reason I got married was that I wanted Beth to understand how important she is and also how equal I feel she is to me."

And, no, Beth never became the bimbo that Howard wanted:

"Howard helps me pick out my outfits. But he always likes short and tight -- I like to wear things a little more classy, so I end up having to find a happy medium."
