When it comes to sex, there are lots of celebrities who have no fear whatsoever of getting real. In fact, in a refreshing way, many famous people over the years have adopted a more open, sex-positive and admittedly amusing approach to talking about their sex lives, sexuality, the kinds of toys they like to use and even what turns them on.
We feel like we’ve gotten to know these candid celebrities a bit better and maybe — just maybe — we end up learning something about sex and sexuality in the process. Plus, who doesn’t love saucy insight into the lives of various celebrities? Bring it on.
So, we present you with a selection of times when celebrities you know got candid about sex. Whether it’s someone you follow on social media whose in-depth interviews you read voraciously or who has made a movie or TV show or song you’ve enjoyed recently, you’ll be shocked (in a really good way!) to see what these celebs have to say about sex.
Amber Rose, who is behind the annual SlutWalk event in Los Angeles, offered up a sexy way to have fun by yourself during a conversation for her Loveline podcast with guest and bestie Blac Chyna back in 2016.
"Masturbate in front of the mirror," she suggested at one point. "I'm the queen of that. […] I highly suggest it by the way. Just go home and masturbate in the mirror. It's fucking amazing. You should try it."
Rihanna, who has frequently portrayed herself as a woman confident in and happy with her sexuality, revealed the surprising quality a man must have to turn her on: "I'm turned on by guys who are cultured. That'll keep me intrigued. They don't have to have a single degree, but they should speak other languages or know things about other parts of the world or history or certain artists or musicians. I like to be taught."
Lady Gaga has spoken about sex and sexuality in a number of ways, but perhaps the most powerful example of her openness about the topic was back in 2011 when she revealed that she always practices safe sex and that she had a long road to feeling comfortable about enjoying sex.
Armie Hammer has been both candid and coy about his sex life. One of the most infamous examples of this was the time the world found out he had some rather kinky tastes thanks to some of the tweets he publicly liked related to ropes and bondage.
Chrissy Teigen has never been shy when it comes to talking about her sex life with John Legend. In a 2014 interview with Cosmo, she revealed how she and Legend joined the mile-high club: "We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren't even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that."
Oh, and let's not forget the time Teigen revealed how Legend has seen one of the most intimate parts of her anatomy (try not to blush!).
Bryan Cranston had regaled many a late-night host with the tale of the adventurous sexcapade he attempted to have with his wife on a train traveling through the Alps. He says he knew at one point the train would be going through a long tunnel that would have bought him and his wife some time to get frisky. But unfortunately, Cranston didn't judge how long they would be in the tunnel under the cover of darkness, and well, you just have to watch the clip for yourself; it's too good.
Angelina Jolie once hinted at her sex life with Brad Pitt and all the ways in which it remained adventurous. "[Pregnancy is] great for the sex life," she told Entertainment Weekly. "It just makes you a lot more creative, so you have fun."
Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith might have given us all a hint at what her sex life is like with husband Will Smith when, in 2009, she offered up this tip on keeping sex spicy with your partner: "Be sneaky. […] Your girlfriend's house at a party. The bathroom. A bedroom. Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex," she told Redbook. "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."
In 2013, Zoe Saldana revealed what her favorite sex position is. "I have to say, for a long time I was a bit lazy so I didn't like to be on top, but I'm really digging it," she noted. "But I've found things that work… because I have really long legs, you just make them sit or lay on a pillow, or two pillows, that way they're like a little elevated, so I won't be so, like, doing a split because my legs are really long."
Beyoncé has never been coy about her sexuality, and she's gotten more frank about it — and her sex life with husband Jay-Z — over the years. She left some very sultry hints that she and Jay enjoy role-playing and sex in public thanks to lyrics from her 2014 album Self-Titled, notably from songs "Partition" and "Drunk in Love."
During a very cute interview about his first date with his longtime partner, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell revealed that he and Hawn were caught by the cops while trying to have sex after a fun night out on the town. Way to keep it spicy, you two!
Jane Fonda revealed her penchant for sex toys, including vibrators, when she was chatting with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017 while promoting her own show, Grace and Frankie. On the show, her character cofounds a sex toy business, and this was something Fonda had fun getting into as part of her preparations for the show.
"We tried all different kinds of vibrators. Use it or lose it, right?" she joked with DeGeneres, going on to reveal she has a very classy and sexy accessory in her wardrobe. "I have [a vibrator] that hangs around my neck and it looks like a beautiful piece of silver jewelry."
Jenna Dewan Tatum
Prior to their split in April 2018, Jenna Dewan Tatum was always willing to give fans the 411 on what her sex life was like with Channing Tatum. In December 2016, she revealed to Cosmo magazine that they "definitely have a very happy and healthy [sex life]," and went on to talk about how her artistic side has influenced her sexual side. "Something about being a dancer connects you to your physical body. It’s primal, earthy, sexual energy by nature. You feel your body in a certain way."
Julianne Hough got real about the inherent goofiness that comes with phone sex and why it's so much fun to do with her hubby, hockey player Brooks Laich, when he's away on a trip. "I'm really bad at it," she told Cosmo in 2016. "I'll get halfway through and start laughing. It's an art. I applaud people who are good at it. They need to come and help me keep a straight face!"
Olivia Wilde once gave us a sneak peek into her sex life with husband, actor Jason Sudeikis, when she characterized their sexual appetite and stamina in 2012 thusly: "[We] have sex like Kenyan marathon runners."
