Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry knows all about Instagram Q&As: she’s covered keto, snacking, and fitness, among other questions from her fans. Now, in a new Instagram video, the actress, 54, didn’t hold back when answering some real detailed questions from fans about her bedroom life.
Berry and her friend, Lindsay Flores, took their conversation between girlfriends, to a new level with their discussion that covered sex and revealed much more about Berry that most of didn’t know.
While live on social media, the ladies took questions from their followers, and as Halle put it on her Instagram, “Some of y’all are nasty.”
To start things off, Lindsay and Halle were questioned about their first orgasm. While Lindsay struggled to recall the details like who, what, where, when and how, Halle remembered it like it was yesterday. The star shared, “I remember my first orgasm… I did it to myself.”
Lindsay, or Booshy as she’s nicknamed, marveled at the idea and asked how old Halle was during the experience, to which the actress revealed she was only 11.
Halle said, “I was diddling. I was figuring out my sexuality, like most girls.”
Well, according to science researchers, she’s partially right. But her confession creates the question: How young is “too young” to explore your sexuality?
According to the National Institutes of Health, most young women experience their first orgasm during masturbation. In 2015, half of the youngest generation of women (under the age of 35) had experienced their first orgasm in masturbation before the age of 15.
The age of their first orgasm achieved via masturbation was in steady decrease from the oldest generation (over the age of 55) to the youngest generation. The average age at first orgasm in masturbation declined significantly from 22 years (age group 65+ years) to 15 years (age group 18–24 years).
The average age had fallen in the 2000s by 3.5 years among young women in comparison with the oldest age group. In the oldest generation, only one-tenth of women had experienced their first orgasm in masturbation before the age of 15.
There was a continuous declining trend in this age from one survey to the next and from one generation to another. (r=0.365, p=0.01).
In 2015, a quarter of young women had their first orgasm in masturbation before the age of 13 and one-tenth before the age of 10. Some women reported that they had their first orgasm in masturbation as early as the age of 5.
However, many women had not experienced an orgasm until they were in their 40s or 50s. The oldest reported ages of participants experiencing their first orgasm via masturbation were women in their 60s. At the population level, there seems to be a huge variation in the age of first orgasm in masturbation.
The NIH goes on to say that half of the women surveyed had their first orgasm during masturbation at least 5 years before their first orgasm during intercourse, and 17% of women 10 years before their first orgasm in intercourse. Only about 10% of women had their first orgasm during intercourse before experiencing an orgasm via masturbation.
This revelation comes just a few days prior to a fury of posts about Berry’s skills in bed on the FOX Soul’s show, Cocktails and Queens.
Host of the show, Claudia Jordan, who was discussing singer Toni Braxton said: “Toni Braxton got some fine men back in the day.”
Lisa Raye then replied: “We don’t know what she’s doing in the bedroom. It could be like Halle Berry.”
Claudia asked Lisa if she was implying that Berry is no good in bed, and Lisa replied: “That’s what they say. That’s what I read, and that’s what I heard. That’s what they say.”
Who ‘they’ are is not clear, but 54-year-old Berry reckons Lisa would be better off asking her man about her performance in the bedroom.
Retweeting an article about Lisa’s claims, Berry said: “Ms. @TheRealLRaye1, ask my man @vanhunt he’ll tell ya all y’all need ta know.”
Regardless of what really happens (or doesn’t happen) in her bedroom, that’s her business when you really think about it. So go ‘head Halle, do your thing, just be safe and healthy when doing it.
