Cara Delevingne has donated her orgasm to science as she researches the gender climax gap and human sexuality in a new tv series.
The model/actor delves into all things sex-positive in a new 6-part documentary series Planet Sex With Cara Delevingne that explores sex-related topics, the orgasm gap, sex appeal, and ethical pornography.
The 30-year-old supermodel underwent testing, as part of the study, and donated her orgasm to science to provide research for the investigation into the gender climax gap.
Delevingne gave researchers a sample of her blood before reaching climax and afterward, for them to examine and draw up conclusions. Attending a hospital in Germany, she told viewers, “I’m here to have an orgasm and donate it to science.” Undergoing the test, the levels of endocannabinoids in her system were measured, before and after orgasm. The chemical increases euphoria and amplifies the pleasurable response to sex.
The gender climax gap relates to the fact that men are more likely to have an orgasm during sex than women.
The model spoke about her own relationship and experiences with sex, saying: “I think female sexual desire has definitely been repressed. I know from my own love life just how sexual women can be so you’d think in the 21st Century men and women should be having equally satisfying sex lives, right? Well, prepare for a shock. When it comes to the orgasm there is a definite gender gap.”
The facts and figures may, or may not surprise you, with stats showing that 95 percent of straight men orgasm during sexual intercourse, compared with only 65 percent of straight women.
Delevingne added “To be honest I think that sounds way too high, most of my straight female friends say it’s probably more like 15 or 20 percent. Lesbians and queer women definitely seem to have it better.”
Delevingne also investigates other sex-related topics, and chats to a sex expert in Holland visits an ‘ethical’ pornography film set, and makes vagina artwork in Japan.
She said: “I do feel that generally men are not equipped with the right tools to handle women, especially sexually.
“I get it, it’s a lot more complicated for a woman to have to tell you that you’re not doing it right, you have to sit down and listen to what I’m saying. Yes, it’s an ego-killer that most men can’t handle.”
Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne will be released on Hulu on November 29, 2022. It will also be shown on BBC Three in the U.K.
