The 84-year-old actor - who appeared as the British spy in seven films in the franchise between 1973 and 1985 - wishes he had been able to get up close and personal with more actresses in the iconic movie series.
He said: "I always rather liked the bedroom scenes. I felt we didn't have enough of those really.
"I very much enjoyed being the debonair hero, but I did find it hard to believe Bond could be a spy and yet be so well known by barmen all over the world."
However, he admits he was glad to put Bond behind him after he finished playing the character, but finds he rarely gets asked to audition for parts now.
He added in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "Old actors, we don't retire, the phone just stops ringing.
"After Bond, I got a bit choosy about what I did as I wanted a change. I was fed up with being blown up and thrown around. So now I don't do that many things with a high income.
"After a while I thought I was just working to keep all my houses around the world."
