Drew Barrymore became super personal on her podcast on Friday, opening up about her experiences in the bedroom.
During an episode of “Drew’s News,” Barrymore was talking to co-host Ross Matthews about the Netflix show “How to Build a Sex Room,” when she revealed that she was open to trying anything in the bedroom when she was younger.
“I’m a dirty bird…but only in the corners of my mind where I won’t say, and it’s just for me,” Barrymore said. “I can understand some weird things. Listen, I’ve tried everything. I’ve done everything. That’s why I’m so boring now.”
As to whether there was one thing that stood out as the most enjoyable, Barrymore wasn’t quite sure, saying, “I don’t know if I’m interested in it or not. I just wanted to try everything.”
Drew Barrymore explains why she’s been away from sex since her 2016 split from Will Kopelman
“Those days are long gone,” she said. “When I was younger, I had all the energy in the world, but now? No.”
When asked if she wanted a “sex room” in her home, Barrymore said she didn’t, but if she “was commissioned to design the sex room” she would “avoid all clichés”.
“There will be no licking of velvet,” said Barrymore. After thinking about it a while longer, she added, “This is also probably why I don’t want a sex room because I don’t like the way they look.”
How Hollywood stars moved on from past relationships
This isn’t the first time Barrymore has spoken out about her life in the bedroom, as she explained in October during an episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show” that she has abstained from sex since her split from ex-husband Will Kopelman in 2016.
On the show, Barrymore was discussing actor Andrew Garfield’s announcement that he had remained abstinent for six months.
“What’s wrong with me? Those six months don’t seem very long,” said Barrymore.
“Some people can get out of a marriage or relationship and, in the near future, find themselves in another relationship. There’s nothing wrong with that! Not one thing. I’m not judging! I’m celebrating their journey! Because some people are this,” Barrymore wrote in a blog post.
“I needed to stay very celibate and honoring and mourning the loss of a nuclear family I swore I would have for my daughters and finding grace and acceptance and what the new normal of a blended family would be like.

“I simply laughed at the fact that it’s not my personal priority to be with a partner, but that doesn’t mean he won’t become one someday. I need time. And my perspective on sex has really changed.”
She explained her comments in a blog post, saying that she “doesn’t hate sex,” but realized that “love and sex aren’t the same thing.”
She also explained her divorce as “rocking[her]to the core” because she grew up believing that once she married, she would be with this man forever. She now acknowledges the love she has for her daughters and makes amends for herself.

“It took time, and I’m proud of myself for taking that time,” she said. “That’s what I needed to do, as my own individual and not just anyone else’s, and I honored that and I respect myself for that, as I respect everyone else for their choices.”
