Drew Barrymore opens up on sex life and says she’s a ‘dirty bird’

Drew Barrymore has opened up about her sex life – admitting she’s something of a ‘dirty bird’, even if things tend to be a little more ‘boring’ these days.

Barrymore, 47, has two daughters with ex-husband Will Kopelman, having also previously been married to bar owner Jeremy Thomas and comedian, actor and filmmaker Tom Green.

She recently explained how she has not had an ‘intimate’ relationship since her 2016 divorce from Kopelman, saying in an essay on her website that she’s not ‘a person who needs sex’.

But during a new episode of her podcast Drew’s News, the actor and talk show host opened up further about her sex life – saying that, while things have been a little quieter lately, she is ‘dirty’ at heart.

The topic arose while she was discussing Netflix series How to Build a Sex Room with friend and co-host Ross Matthews.

“I’m a dirty bird, but just in the corners of my mind where I never will tell, and it’s just for me,” Barrymore said.

“I can understand certain kinky things. Listen, I’ve tried everything. I’ve done everything. That’s why I’m so boring now.”

She continued: “I don’t know if I was into it or not - I just wanted to try everything.”

But Barrymore said those days are now in the past, adding: “Those days are long gone.

“Back when I was younger, I had all the energy in the world, but now? No.”

She went on to outline how she would design her own sex room if she appeared on the series, saying: “[I] would avoid all the clichés... there wouldn't be a lick of velvet."

She added: "That's probably also why I don't want a sex room is I don't like the way they look.”

Barrymore recently spoke about the sexual side of her personal life in a blog essay, revealing she has ‘not been able have an intimate relationship’ since becoming a single mother after her divorce.

"I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level,” the star wrote.

"A relationship with a man has not been top of mind for me for a very long time."

Barrymore said she is now ‘just in a completely different place’ in her life, and that while a relationship may happen in the near future, dating simply hasn’t been her ‘priority’.

She continued: “Some people can get out of a marriage or relationship and in the near future find themselves in another relationship.

“There is nothing wrong with that! Not one bit. I do not judge! I celebrate their journey! Because for some people that really works.

“It didn’t work for me.”
