Mick Jagger's 'orgasmic' shows

Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger says performing live can be "orgasmic"

Sir Mick Jagger says performing live can be "orgasmic".

The Rolling Stones frontman has likened being on stage to having sex, insisting they are both highly pleasurable experiences.

He said: "Is it like sex? I don't know. Is there an orgasmic moment? Not that there necessarily has to be in sex. It's a different kind of thing. At times, you have to be more calculated about what you do."

Although the 65-year-old musician still gets a thrill out of touring, Jagger also enjoys having a private life away from the spotlight.

He explained: "It's a great thing to do but you don't want to be doing it all the time.

"I'm not saying I'm boring, but you have to have a regular life. You don't want to be a performer all the time. You don't want me on the table singing."

He added: "People seem to find it hard to accept that you can be several people at the same time. Of course it's a different persona. If you came to a dinner party as your stage persona, he wouldn't be a very welcome guest!"
