Tina Turner: Love, Resilience, and Strength – Inspiring Quotes on Relationships and Sexuality

Published on October 15, 2023

Tina Turner was an American singer, songwriter, and actress who left an indelible mark on the music industry. She was known for her powerful voice, electrifying performances, and iconic style. While her music career spanned over six decades, she was also a survivor of domestic abuse and a symbol of resilience and strength.

As a Relationship Counselor and Clinical Sexologist, I believe that Tina Turner’s quotes on love, sex, and relationships are still relevant today. Here are some of her most inspiring quotes:

“I believe in the power of love.” – Tina Turner believed that love was a powerful force that could overcome any obstacle. She was married twice, but it was her second marriage to Erwin Bach that lasted until her death.

“I don’t need a man to be happy.” – Despite being in two marriages, Tina Turner was a strong advocate for independence and self-love. She believed that happiness came from within and that no one else could provide it for you.

“Sex is a gift from God.” – Tina Turner was known for her sensual performances and provocative lyrics. She believed that sex was a natural part of life and should be celebrated.

“I’m not a victim. I’m a survivor.” – Tina Turner’s first marriage to Ike Turner was marked by physical and emotional abuse. However, she refused to be defined by her past and instead chose to focus on her future.

“You are the creator of your own destiny.” – Tina Turner believed in the power of positive thinking and taking control of your own life. She overcame many obstacles in her career and personal life by staying focused on her goals.

As we reflect on Tina Turner’s life and legacy, we can all learn from her wisdom and strength. Whether it’s finding love, embracing our independence, or overcoming adversity, we can all take inspiration from this iconic performer.

Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and completed her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in 2017. In practice for eight years, she is the only certified sexuality educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.

Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She is the host of weekly radio show Eros Evolution on the OMTimes Radio Network. She has published three books: Love, Sex and Everything In-Between, Orgasmic Yoga and From Princess to Queen.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again.
