Olivier Zahm on why sex is so important to his magazine, Purple: "Sex is a part of every fashion magazine; I’m more direct about it because I embrace it without fear as part of my aesthetic. Being part of the creative world, sex is something that I have to consider, think about, read about, and experience in a healthy and natural way, but what I see is the opposite. Sexual freedom is becoming dangerous and almost criminal. In America there are now sexual rehabs, and if you consider sex as an addiction in the same way as drugs or alcohol, you are categorizing it as a dangerous or uncontrollable impulse. As long as violence and abuse are not involved, sex is something completely natural, sophisticated, and inspiring. The people who go to sex rehab are not making that decision alone. They are trapped in a system where they have to go to pretend to their family, to their boss, or the media (like Tiger Woods), 'I’m good now.' But you’re not 'good' — you’re just a hypocrite, and you want your money back, and you want your wife back, and you are stupid robot, and you play the game, but you are not honest because you accept that society decides what’s good or not for you sexually."
