Let’s talk about it, baby! Keke Palmer opened up about the sex advice she received from her boyfriend Whoopi Goldberg — and how it helped her find more fun in the bedroom.
“I will never forget, I was there The view one time, and they had a talk about sex, a really good talk “the Scream queen alum, 29, said on her Tuesday, Nov. 22 episode of her podcast “Baby, This Is Keke Palmer.” “Whoopi Goldberg said, ‘Start by doing yourself a favor.’ And I was like, ‘That’s right.’”
The no star shared that she’d never had a “happy ending” to “porn-style” sex, explaining that instead her “identity” with it was always based on doing “a service” to someone else.
“And my fun, any fun I had at that time, at that time, at that time, came from, ‘I’m glad they’re happy,'” she said. “That was, like, depressing and not enough. Because I realized, like, ‘Well, wait a minute… this isn’t you.’”
After commenting that she’s been on a “journey to find out what works for me,” the Nickelodeon alum said she’s realized that intimacy makes her feel fulfilled — in all areas of her life.
“I’ve only had a really happy ending of a more subdued, a calmer, a more emotional approach,” she revealed.
Palmer has long been transparent about personal struggles that other Hollywood stars might shy away from, regularly being candid about her struggles with adult acne over the years.
In 2020, the scream alum revealed that she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, which often causes both acne and facial hair. At the time the hustlers actress said her skin was “so bad people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed. I’ve tried EVERYTHING.”
“Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome has been attacking me from the inside out all my life and I had no idea,” she wrote via Instagram, adding that she took the prescription drug Accutane twice, changed her diet and drank water, but nothing changed. “I did all that, I ate all the ‘right’ things, my blood tests were fine. But it took ME to personally look at my family, who has a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what was REALLY going on with me.
The password cohost, who credited her family’s “struggle out of poverty” for giving her access to proper medical treatment, concluded her post by sharing a message of support for those struggling with similar issues.
“The least harmful thing PCOS can cause is acne. To all the people struggling with this, please know that you are not alone and you are still so fine! said said. “MY ACNE HAS NEVER STOPPED ME. But we don’t have to accept this. Now I can really help KEKE! And I love her, so it’s ON.
