She's widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women of all time, but Raquel Welch was never as overtly sexual as today's starlets.

"I think we've gotten to the point in our culture where we're all sex addicts, literally," Welch, 71, tells Men's Health. "We have equated happiness in life with as many orgasms as you can possibly pack in."

"I think this era of porn is at least partially responsible for it. Where is the anticipation and the personalization? It's an exploitation of the poor male’s libidos. Poor babies -- they can't control themselves!"

The "One Million Years B.C." actress, who has been married four times, knows her views may seem outdated.

"I don't care if I'm becoming one of those old fogies who says, 'Back in my day we didn’t have to hear about sex all the time.' They're ruining us with all the explanations and the graphicness," she tells Men's Health.

Says Welch: "Nobody remembers what it's like to be left to form your own ideas about what's erotic and sexual."

Welch guest stars on CBS' "CSI Miami" Sunday at 10 p.m. EST.
