Whoopi Goldberg is proud to be stingy in the bedroom.

The actor appeared on "The Don Lemon Show" to discuss her new memoir, "Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me." During the episode, she also divulged the unique part of her that is “fundamentally a selfish person," as reported by PEOPLE

As far as the deed, the EGOT winner prefers a particular kind.

"Hit-and-runs are great. I don't mind those," she said. “But you can't spend the night.”

When asked by Lemon if "they still happen", Whoopi held nothing back.

“Oh, yeah,” she said. “And you have to give yourself permission because you know you have this whole line of words that are stacked up in your head about what you are if you say a ‘hit-and-run’ is where you want to be, and you don't want to be married.”

"The View" co-host continued, “You know, ‘Oh, am I a whore? Am I this? Am I a terrible person because I don't want to…’ and I never really thought about it,” she said. “I just thought, ‘Well I must be doing it wrong, ’cause other people seem to be able to have figured it out.’ “

“What I didn't realize with that was that I had figured it out. I just was surprised by the fact that I didn't really want it, but I like to hit-and-run,” she expained. “And my mother said well maybe you should just throw a throw a party from now on, not get married anymore.”

Whoopi –who's been married three times before– said marriage "requires a lot. It is really a give and take."

"In my life at this point I don't really want that I just I want to you know see you when I see you and then you go."
