Drew Barrymore is ‘not a person who needs sex’


Drew Barrymore has shared her perspective on love and sex after divorce.

The daytime TV show host recently took to her blog to dispel a misconception that she’s not into sex.

“The other day I walked into a workout class and this woman said ‘you look like Drew Barrymore except you look like you have mental wellbeing plus…she hates the sex!'” Barrymore wrote.

“I didn’t know what this woman was talking about,” she continued. “Then a few days later I learned that somehow a comment I made on the show about abstaining from sex for six months didn’t feel right to me. so long because at my age and with my life experience, it was just didn’t.”

Barrymore said the conversation happened because a famous actor she didn’t name (but “who is considered a heartbeat”) said he “abstained from sex for six months in a role he was working on.”

At the age of 48, Barrymore wrote, she now has “very different feelings about intimacy” than she did growing up. The actress and businesswoman has been focused on being the mother of her two daughters with her ex-husband Will Kopelman, she said, adding that she had not had a relationship intimate since their separation in 2016.

“I’m just in a completely different place in my life and maybe in the near future I’ll have a relationship…but that just hasn’t been my priority,” Barrymore wrote. “So I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out and engage with people on that level. I am someone who is deeply committed to promoting the way young girls, my daughters and myself as a woman, are meant to function in this world! »

She also put to bed the theory that she hates sex.

“So for the record, I don’t hate sex!” Barrymore wrote. “I’ve finally come to the epiphany that love and sex just aren’t the same thing. I’ve strived all my life to be a quiet woman and not a pompous party girl.
