Personal life Loken has stated in an interview with Curve magazine "I have dated and have had sex with men and women and have to say that the relationships I have had with certain women have been much more fulfilling, sexually and emotionally, than of those with certain men.... I connect with an aura, with energy. And if the person with whom I connect happens to be a female, thatâ€™s just the way it is. Thatâ€™s what makes my wheels turn".
