LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Keke Palmer is opening up on how Whoopi Goldberg's sex advice changed her life forever. On the most recent episode of her 'Baby, This is Keke Palmer' podcast, the ‘Nope’ actress explained to her listeners, "I’ll never forget, I was on 'The View' one time, and they were having a conversation about sex, a really great conversation, and Whoopi Goldberg said, 'Please just start with pleasing yourself. And I was like, 'That rings true.'"

Palmer said that Goldberg’s sounded odd to her at that time as it was very different from how she had previously perceived sex. She confessed that she had always believed it was more important to ensure the other person was happy and not to put herself first at all. Palmer explained her past beliefs, "My identity with sex, it was always based upon, 'Oh, I just got to do this service’. That was, like, depressing and not enough because, well, I realized, like, 'Well, wait a damn minute-- This isn't you!' So, it was a journey of trying to figure out what works for me."

She also mentioned how ‘porn simulation sex,’ as she called it, had a significant influence on her connection with sex as well as her early knowledge of what it was and how it was supposed to work. Keke said, "I never actually had a happy ending from that if I'm being, you know, lightly frank," while adding that she eventually came to feel it was how it was meant to go down. Keke said that she was astonished to discover that what she wanted in private was entirely different from what she showed in public after following Goldberg's advice and began to explore her own fulfillment and pleasure.

"In my daily life, I'm very performative. I'm giving you everything I've got and I'm going in and what I did learn and realize as I matured was like, that's absolutely not the kind of sex that I want to have,” she remarked. Recently, the former Nickelodeon actress also talked about how she felt stuck when playing "True Jackson, VP." She revealed she decided to create the performative persona she's become known for, in part because she was frequently linked to this imaginary character. She told The Hollywood Reporter last week, "I'm a quirky artist, but I'm an artist, and it's important for people to understand that Keke is just a part of who I am. It's been a winding road of trying to figure out how to do what I love but also exist outside of this caricature."
