Nicki Minaj has opened up about her thoughts on having sex more than once in a night and admitted she's into foreplay without hugging.

The 35-year-old rapper has addressed the lyrics in her song 'Barbie Tingz' where she claimed she likes to make love more than once on the same evening, whilst also revealing she is a fan of foreplay, but not hugging the person afterwards as it's a big turn off for her.

Appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', Nicki spilled on getting intimate: "If you have someone that you don't see on a regular basis ... if you see them once or twice a week, then yeah, three times a night!

"When I see you, three times a night! And if you can't hang, goodbye. I'm not wasting my time."

On foreplay, she added: "No more than a half an hour between each thing.

"I hate cuddling after. Once I get mine, if I feel really really great, then leave me alone!"

The 'Anaconda' hitmaker - who broke up with fellow rapper Nas earlier this year - is in a new relationship, but she isn't putting any pressure on the romance as she has enjoyed being single.

She said when asked if she is seeing anyone: "[It's] Fairly new. He's been around for a couple weeks now. I'm just chilling.

"I've always been in a relationship my whole life. 

"I was in a relationship since I was 15 years old. 

"This is the first time that I'm single and I'm happier. 

"I'm more free. I used to feel like I had to have a man, and I want every woman out there to know you absolutely don't."

In June, Nicki admitted she was abstaining from having casual sex while she was single on her song 'Ganja Burns from her latest album 'Queen'.

She raps: "Abstaining from sex, had to zen my body

I ain't giving, so don't ask, I don't lend my body

Gotta be king status to give a man my body (sic)"
