'I'm a dirty bird': Drew Barrymore says her sex life is boring now because she 'tried EVERYTHING'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Drew Barrymore has opened up about aspects of her sexual life during an episode of her podcast 'Drew's News' with co-host Ross Matthews. “I’m a dirty bird,” Barrymore told the comedian during the November 18 episode. The actress said that she is just "dirty... in the corners of [her] mind right now."
The 47-year-old host of the 'Drew Barrymore Show' did divulge her sexual history to Ross Mathews during their podcast interview. “I can understand certain kinky things,” she said. “Listen, I’ve tried everything. I’ve done everything — that’s why I’m so boring now," she said. Asked by her co-host if there was anything that she found the most enjoyable, Barrymore clarified, "I just wanted to try," adding that she is unsure whether she "was into" things.
"Those days are long gone," she said, Page Six reported. "Back when I was younger, I had all the energy in the world, but now? No," she revealed. Barrymore was asked if she wanted a "sex room" in her home. She said that she didn't, but that if she was tasked with designing a sex room, "I would avoid all the cliches. "There wouldn't be a lick of velvet," Barrymore said. After thinking about it longer, she added, "That's probably also why I don't want a sex room is I don't like the way they look."
The famous Hollywood figure has never shied away from discussing her intimate relationships in the past. Barrymore was married to Will Kopelman from 2012 to 2016 and after their divorce, she claimed that she has not been intimate with anyone. She also revealed that she isn't the kind of person who "needs sex" and that it's not a necessaity for her to "engage with people on that level."
Barrymore also discussed how her attitudes around closeness and sex now are "very different" from when she was younger. “I have had the pleasure of shifting my focus when it comes to love for myself and my daughters,” she wrote in a blog post. “I know that does not include a man, nor has it for a while. Since entering life as a single mom, I have not been able to have an intimate relationship. I am just in a completely different place in my life and maybe in the near future I will get into a relationship…but it simply hasn’t been my priority. So I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level. I am someone who is deeply committed to fostering how young girls, my daughters, and myself as a woman, are supposed to function in this world.”
