Celebrating Her First Sex Toy Collab, Lily Allen Says She Will ‘Definitely’ Talk to Her Daughters About Masturbation

When Lily Allen dropped her memoir My Thoughts Exactly in 2018, she opened up about the ways she’d discovered the joy of giving herself an orgasm. She went as far as to shout-out a specific vibrator that helped her on he sexual pleasure journey (having been a late-bloomer to sexual self-care).

The sex toy she shouted out in the book? The OG Womanizer.

Launching her first sex toy collaboration with Womanizer, Allen helped design a special edition of their Liberty clitoral stimulator. With the nifty title Chief Liberation Officer, Allen has brought he forthcoming attitude to the brand’s #IMasturbate campaign — encouraging more and more women to be sex positive and embrace masturbation as a normal, totally fun way to cultivate a loving sexual relationship with yourself (which, in turn, can improve your sexual relationship(s) with others!)

“Sexual empowerment means taking my pleasure as my responsibility and my own control,” Allen said  in a Q&A with Womanizer for the campaign. “And that means making sure that I put time aside for masturbation but also communicating to my partner what it is I like.”

Through talking about the collaboration, Allen also shared that masturbation just wasn’t something that was talked about as she was growing up — and that’s something she hopes to correct at the age-appropriate time with her own daughters to break that cycle of stigma and silence.

“I will definitely talk to my daughters about masturbation. It was something that wasn’t discussed with me and I definitely felt a lot of shame and fear around it and didn’t masturbate for about 10 years when I probably should’ve been,” she said. “So, yeah, I will definitely talk about it and hope they masturbate lots when they are old enough.”

A special edition of the Liberty model, Lily’s toy features bright colors, a convenient travel cover and six powerful intensity levels that use Womanizer’s Pleasure Air™ technology — stimulating the clitoris with gentle suction and air for some seriously satisfying sensations. It’s waterproof, USB rechargeable and easy to use — whether you’re a sex toy expert or a newbie.

For Allen, this is a powerful step in using her platform to advocate for sex positivity and pleasure — which we can totally get behind: “Sex toys are still seen as a taboo subject — they are related to masturbation and female pleasure, and ( think that female pleasure in itself is a taboo subject,” Allen says. “The only way to make taboo subjects no longer taboo is to speak about them openly and frequently and without shame or guilt.”
