Keke Palmer revealed that it was Whoopi Goldberg who helped her find out what works for her in the bedroom after giving her sage advice.

The actress, 29, admitted she had viewed sex as a ‘service’ for her partner’s pleasure rather than her own until Whoopi, 57, encouraged her to experience the pleasure of self to find out what she would want from a partner.

She explained on her Baby podcast, This Is Keke Palmer: “My identity with sex – it’s always been based on, ‘Oh, I just gotta do this service. And my pleasure, any pleasure I had at that time, at that time, at that time, came from, “I’m glad they’re happy.”

‘Then it became… so it was like, depressing and not enough because I realized, like, ‘Well wait a fucking minute… it’s not,’ you know what I mean ?

“So it’s been a, it’s been a journey of trying to figure out what works for me.

“And I remember, I’ll never forget, I was on The View one time, and they were having a conversation about sex, a really good conversation, and Whoopi Goldberg said, ‘Please start with make you happy. And I thought, “That rings true.” ‘

The Nope star added that the advice made her realize she preferred a more emotional connection during sex, rather than faking the over the top bedroom antics seen in porn.

Keke explained: “There was once in my life when I thought porn simulation sex – because that’s what it sounds like to me, porn: simulated sex – was something that could be interesting or fun.

“But I’ve never had a happy ending, if I’m being, you know, slightly candid. I’ve only had an actual happy ending from a wiser, calmer, more emotional approach.

Keke previously refused to define her own sexuality after releasing her music video for I Don’t Belong To You, in which she gets closer to a woman.

Speaking in 2016, she said: ‘The video had to represent the young woman of today – it’s not the traditional woman anymore – not the specifics of ‘Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?

“I make the rules for myself, and I don’t have to be stuck to one label. I don’t feel the need to define anything to anyone, because I’m always changing.

‘Why say that I am this or that when I may not be tomorrow? I will follow my own feelings and my own heart.
