Sexy Time: My Sex Role Models

‚ By 

Everyone’s got their celebrity/iconic role models. Some look up to Hillary Clinton for being such a strong, empowered woman. Some look up to Lady Gaga for being who she is, regardless of what other people think. Some may even look up to Tyra for proving that crazy people can get famous too.

Personally, I think all of those women are great (or crazy, in the case of the last one), but I have my own role models, whom I look up to for something very near and dear to my heart: sex. These women are all confident, beautiful, and not afraid to talk about sex. I have invited each of these women into my bedroom (their attitudes, at least)  and each has helped me enjoy sex and my own sexuality a whole lot more.

Halle Berry

Quote: “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.”

Why She Rocks: She knows good sex and isn’t afraid to ask for it.

How She Inspired Me: I don’t have to be afraid of my sexuality; it’s OK for me to have needs and do what I can to fulfill them.

Jada Pinkett-Smith

Quote: “My husband and I always make time for sex! Always! No matter how busy we are. And if I told you the places! You would not even believe! It’s crazy the risks that we take, but that’s what keeps it so much fun.”

Why She Rocks: She proves that committed people don’t have to have boring sex lives.

How She Inspired Me: It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day stuff in a relationship, but Jada reminded me that we gotta make time to spice things up, otherwise things can go down hill quickly.

Meryl Streep

Quote: “The whole idea that you have to look a certain way and be a certain age to earn love is ridiculous. We love what we love. It doesn’t matter what shape it is. It’s thrilling to see real people on screen.”

Why She Rocks: She’s still doing sex scenes at 60 and she’ll probably be doing them for years to come.

How She Inspired Me: We’re all sexy – no matter what shape, size or age – and we just always need to remember that.

Goldie Hawn

Quotes (from Kate Hudson): “My parents always said, ‘Sex is the best thing in the world…When you start having it you’re going to love it. But it’s that much better when you love somebody, so just remember that.’”

“People think that you can put your sexual life on hold [after having a baby], but you have to find time for it. Without that relationship, our family is broken. My mom really implanted that in me when I was pregnant.”

Why She Rocks: If only all parents could be as open about discussing sex with their kids, maybe we wouldn’t have such high teen pregnancy and STD rates.

How She Inspired Me: No, Goldie didn’t have me running to my parents to ask about their sex lives. But she did get me to stop, take a moment, and appreciate sex for the beautiful, powerful and awesome thing that it can be.

Angelina Jolie

Quotes: “Honestly, I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the thick, the thin. Which is a problem when I’m walking down the street.”

“All women do have a different sense of sexuality, or sense of fun, or sense of, like, what’s sexy or cool or tough.”

“You’re young, you’re drunk, you’re in bed, you have knives; sh*t happens…”

Why She Rocks: Angelina is one celebrity who was never afraid to speak honestly about her sex life, no matter how strange other people found it, and I admire her for that. She’s also remained sexy and confident while managing to be a great mom to six kids.

How She Inspired Me: Sometimes I’m afraid to try new things in the bedroom, but if Angelina can do it (and snag Brad Pitt), why not me?

Scarlett Johansson

Quote: “I’ve never had sex with Benicio Del Toro in a lift. It was a sarcastic quote that I unfortunately gave to a journalist. I said: ‘Apparently, Benicio Del Toro and I had sex in an elevator. He printed it, then all the tabloids took out the word ‘apparently’. I’ll be answering that question for the rest of my life.”

Why She Rocks: If only the Benicio story were true…

How She Inspired Me: I assume she’s had sex with Ryan Reynolds in an elevator without anyone finding out and that’s something I’ve always wanted to do…
