Cara Delevingne has said she believes men don’t have the ‘right tools’ to sexually please a woman, having delved into the world of sex for a new BBC Three project.
In the six-part series all about sex, Delevingne, 30, doesn’t hold back on the matter – even telling us about her own habits, which over the years have included everything from watching porn to having sex with men and women.
“I’ve sat next to my friend and masturbated next to each other, but that’s about it,” she says candidly at one point.
In the first episode, the Brit also speaks about ‘the orgasm gap’, a term used to describe the vast difference in orgasm rates among men and women: while 95 percent of straight men orgasm during intercourse, just 65 percent of straight women do so.
She feels this is down to the fact that men aren’t armed with the necessary ‘tools’ to sexually pleasure women.
“I do feel that generally men are not equipped with the right tools to be able to handle women, especially sexually,” Delevingne explains.
She continues: “For me, the earliest ideas I ever got taught about sex were man plus woman, d*** plus vagina equals orgasm.
“I don’t want to go into the art of making a woman come, but it’s just a lot more complicated and a lot more fun.”
Episode one also sees the star masturbate for 10 minutes as she takes part in a study at a German university.
“I’m here to have an orgasm and donate it to science,” she says.
Delevingne is given a whistle to blow when she orgasms – something she jokes she should ‘always have’.
“I have had some weird sexual experiences, but this is definitely up there,” she says, saying her participation in the study was one of the ‘bravest’ things she has ever done.
“I can’t believe I did it,” she adds.
Reflecting on the bold new documentary series, Delevingne said she felt ‘proud’ of the project, saying it changed her life.
“Now I’m happier than I’ve ever been,” she said.
“I feel really, really proud of what we created,” she said.
“I know I shouldn’t feel shame but I truly believe there are souls like me all over the world.”
