The View’s Joy Behar has revealed her secret to a healthy sex life – and it doesn’t involve sleeping with ghosts, despite her past jokes about getting intimate with spirits.
The comedian, 81, divulged how she keeps the passion alive in the bedroom, claiming all it takes is an afternoon martini ‘on an empty stomach’ – and thinking about somebody that you ‘really wanna sleep with’.
The TV host, who has been married to Steve Janowitz since 2011, also dished out dating advice for single women, urging them to ditch online apps because there is too much ‘lying’ as she joined her co-hosts on The View: Behind the Table podcast.
Responding to a fan who asked how to keep the ‘energy up’ in the bedroom, she said: ‘A martini on an empty stomach in the middle of the afternoon is key… and think of somebody that you really wanna sleep with!

Joy branded online dating ‘the worst idea’ and said single women should go to bars to meet men and ‘get drunk’
‘People say you should think about an actor, like George Clooney or something… that’s not what I do.’
Alyssa Farah Griffin asked if she thinks of ‘past lovers’ , to which she replied: ‘Yeah somebody I know already, not George Clooney. Or knew… in the past.’
Asked by Deborah Roberts if she is ever ‘worried’ she ‘might say their name by mistake’, Joy joked: ‘I’m perfectly alone when I’m doing that!’
The comedian also talked about the current dating landscape as she criticized dating apps, branding them ‘the worst’.
‘I’m so glad that I’m old because this is the worst idea I’ve ever heard of,’ she said of applications such as Tinder, Hinge, and Bumble.
‘Online dating is the worst. Meet them at a bar, get drunk and go home with them, that’s the way to do it.
‘I would just write, “If you wanna know more about me, take me out for a drink…”‘
She added: ‘I’m not telling them all my assets! No!’
Joy also had plenty to say when another viewer admitted that they were dating three different men – one who is great in bed, one who plans amazing dates, and one who they can talk to for hours – and asked which on she should choose.
‘The one to talk to is good for marriage, especially after 30 years,’ Joy declared.
But when he co-host Sunny Hostin reminded her that ‘they’re just dating,’ she added: ‘I guess the one who is good in bed for me!’
Referring to the sex, Joy then advised: ‘If you don’t have it at the beginning, you’ll never get it!’

The redhead is certainly no stranger to discussing her personal life on The View, and left the panel stunned when she recently made a very racy comment about sex.
Joy claimed that when it comes to the bedroom, it is a matter of ‘quality’ – not quantity – as she hinted that men haven’t always been able to locate her G spot.
Her admission came as the panel discussed actress Rachel Bilson’s recent claim that she would find it ‘weird’ if a single man in his 40s had only slept with four women.
Whoopi Goldberg, 67, admitted she found Rachel’s comments ‘very odd’, while Joy claimed it wouldn’t bother her if her lover had only been with four sexual partners.
‘If one out of the four can locate my G spot, I’m all in! I don’t need thousands, get me one good one,’ she said.
The live studio burst out laughing at Joy’s raunchy remark, but Whoopi was more concerned and quipped: ‘That scares me! If you don’t know where that G spot is by now…’
Joy felt the need to explain herself further and fired back: ‘I know where it is! I’m going to form a search party soon for them to find it!’
Joy started dating her husband Steve in 1982, but the couple didn’t tie the knot until almost 30 years later. She married her first husband, college professor Joe Behar, in 1965, but they divorced in 1981.
