You’re having the sex. I’m having the sex. We’re all having the sex. And it’s fun, right? So why aren’t more people talking about it for what it is: a healthy, natural expression of the human form that happens to feel really damn good.

For far too long, sex has been a taboo topic. The problem with that, of course, is that it implies there is something wrong with the act itself — and there’s not. As long as sex is between two consenting adults, it’s a beautiful thing.

But if you need a role model to help boost your sexual self-awareness, you won’t have to look far. Although there are plenty of people in Hollywood who still treat sex like it should be a hush-hush subject, sex-positive celebrities do exist.

From Issa Rae to Miley Cyrus, these stars are doing their part to destigmatize sex and promote sexual confidence across the spectrum.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana doesn't shy away from sex talk. In fact, she's an open book. "I like missionary and I like being on my knees, too. And I love being on top... I love doggy-style or standing up," she revealed on the Lifetime TV series The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet.

2/11 :Amber Rose

"At the end of the day, if you want to fuck a guy, do it," Amber Rose, who founded the SlutWalk to promote sex positivity, advises in her book How to Be a Bad Bitch. "A bad bitch isn't ashamed of her desire. Men go out and get some all the time, without anyone making a fuss about it. It's not our problem there's a double standard in our culture."


3/11 :Rihanna

Bad girl RiRi makes no apologies for her sexually charged music or for enjoying sex. "To me, sex is power. It's empowering when you do it because you want to do it," she told Elle in 2012. She has also admitted she likes when a partner takes charge, telling Rolling Stone, "Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your shit. That's sexy to me."

In Vogue's Ageless Style issue in 2010, Cameron Diaz made it clear what keeps her young. "The fountain of youth [for me], let's see... I guess it's exercise, healthy diet, lots of water, lots of sex. Yes, sex, we need that as human beings. It's healthy, it's natural, it's what we are here to do!"

Discussing her HBO series Insecure with Huffington Post, Issa Rae explained how important it is for her to destigmatize sexuality for women. "I think there's a constant stigma when women try to explore their sexual freedom in the way that men do," she said, adding, "I definitely want to depict [sexuality] in a raw and authentic way and show us being uninhibited and unafraid of judgment."

6 /11: Halle Berry

Halle Berry is a woman in charge of her own destiny... and that includes her sexual destiny. "You know that stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That's all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days. Much better orgasms than when I was twenty-two. And I wouldn't let a man control that. Not anymore. Now I'd invite him to participate. I'll tell you this: I've learned my tricks. I know what I like. I do not wait around. I initiate. And I'm not all about frequency. I favor intensity," Berry told Esquire

7 /11: Miley Cyrus

The fact that Miley Cyrus discusses sex and sexuality in a frank and unapologetic manner likely surprises no one. You've got to admire her honesty. "I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal and everyone is of age. Everything that's legal, I'm down with," she told Paper. "Yo, I'm down with any adult — anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me."

8 /11: Jada Pinkett Smith

When you're married for two decades, you know how to spice things up. And Jada Pinkett Smith doesn't mind sharing her sexual insight because, hey, sharing is caring. "Be sneaky... your girlfriend's house at a party. The bathroom. A bedroom," Pinkett Smith told Redbook. "Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex. Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Pull over on the side of the road... Just switch it up."

9 /11: Christina Aguilera

From her "Dirty" days to the present, Christina Aguilera has never been ashamed of her sexual drive. "I'm an artist, and expressing myself in a sexual way, no matter how that changes throughout the years, is something that has always come naturally to me," she revealed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno back in 2013. "At this point of my life, I'm 32 and I feel sexier than ever because you know what you want."

10/11 :Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria believes that sex is a natural expression and should be enjoyed, and self-pleasure certainly falls under that umbrella. "I didn't begin enjoying sex until I started masturbating," reported Contact Music. "It's a shame I didn't discover it sooner... Everybody should [masturbate]."

11 /11: Armie Hammer

11/11 :Armie Hammer

It's OK for guys to be sex-positive too, and Armie Hammer is a prime example. During an interview with Cosmo, he opened up about how his tastes have changed over time. "Well, if you're married to a feminist, as I am, then it's... I don't know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover. I liked grabbing the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better it's not like I'm suffering in any way," he said, adding, "So it becomes a new kind of thing that's less about 'I want to dominate you' and more about both of us having a really good time. It's just a different style."
