Right when you think you’ve heard it all, science goes and blows your mind away. Yes, Cara Delevingne donated an orgasm to science. No, that wasn’t “organ.” That was “orgasm.”

Cara Delevingne Donated an Orgasm to Science and It’s Documented on a TV Show

In a 6-part TV special, made for BBC and streaming on Hulu, Cara Delevingne takes part in a scientific study.  That study is investigating the “gender climax gap” and why so many more men have orgasms during sex than women.

As reported by Indy100, Delevingne thinks that the current statistics regarding female orgasms are considerably overestimated.

“I’m here to have an orgasm and donate it to science,” Cara Delevingne says on an episode. “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. Scientists say that 95 per cent of straight men orgasm during intercourse but only 65 per cent of straight women do.

“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 per cent. Lesbians and queer women definitely seem to have it better.”

Producer Simon Andreae Says BBC Will Show a More “Explicit” Version of Planet Sex

The TV series, Planet Sex With Cara Delevingne, will premiere this week on BBC3 as well as Hulu. Simon Andreae, the UK head of the show’s production company, Fremantle, told a Q&A in Cannes that the BBC will be airing a more “explicit” version of the show than Hulu. The Q&A was reported on by Variety.

Andreae described the basic premise of the show as an inside look into the supermodel and actress’s exploration with sex and sexuality.

“In each episode, Cara would explore one of those big questions [about sexuality], ask it at the top, go on a voyage of discovery through laboratories, different cultures, different individuals, her own mind and body and come out the other end with a conclusion,” said Andreae.

The show will show Delevingne partaking in a number of different quests and activities. One of those involves having her blood drawn before and after a self-induced orgasm. The intention is to measure her endocannabinoids, which create a euphoric and pleasurable response during sex while reducing anxiety.

This is not exactly the first time that endocannabinoids have been measured post-orgasm, but the research is still limited.

Delevingne Felt Like a “Prude” When Asked to Practice Masturbation at a Seminar

Delevingne had to attend a “masturbation seminar” as part of the TV series. At the Cannes Q&A, she admitted that she was surprised at what was asked of her.

“I went into the masturbation seminar thinking it was going to be a classroom and I’d have a notepad, and instead it was a pink, leather gym mat on the floor, with six people going, ‘Well, take your underwear off. This is the lube,’” explained Delevingne. “I didn’t realize I was a prude. I think I’m a pretty hip, young, cool, down-with-anything kind of girl but I was like, ‘Sorry what? Sorry, no, absolutely not, I will not do that.’ But I kind of did everything I felt comfortable doing.”

Delevingne also said that she didn’t have any “reservations” about anything (except perhaps masturbating in front of 6 people in a room). She inferred that her attitude was more on the eager-to-learn side of things.

“I was more like, ‘What are we doing today?’ Because every day was completely different,” Cara said. “I’m used to being a chameleon but this was absurd. One day you’re going to get your blood taken while having an orgasm, the next day you’re going to a porn library. I was like, ‘Right, okay, screw my head back on.’ “

Watch the Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne Trailer Below

Cara Delevingne describes herself as “100%” queer and has been known to date both men and women. In the trailer for Planet Sex, she mentions this.

“My name is Cara,” she says in the trailer. “I date men, but Oh, do I love women. And everyone else. There’s so much to know about the world of sex and I want answers.”

The trailer goes on to show Delevingne admits that she’s experienced “internalized homophobia and shame” in her own life. She told the Q&A that doing the show was an eye-opening experience for her, even though she’d already come out as queer.

“I feel like I needed this in my life, honestly,” she said. “Maybe not to do it on camera — I mean, that was something I wanted to do for other people, but in terms of, for me, I grew up a lot. I had chosen to take a step back from love and relationships for a while before I did this, and this made me realize again how much I needed to repair certain things in my life and move on from that. I really grew up a lot.”

Delevingne added that she hopes she can have an impact on a lot of people. “If I can or have had the effect I have on only one person or a group of kids, I don’t think I’ve spoken about it enough,” she said. She added that just appearing in public with a female lover wasn’t enough considering her goals in life.
