Since model Cara Delevingne became co-owner and creative advisor of the women-run sex toy line Lora DiCarlo last fall, her friends have received some unusual gifts.
“My friends say, ‘I know what I’ll get for Christmas. ‘You know, I sent sex toys around. I was like a happy orgasm for you, “she tells Pharrell Williams in the new episode of his OTHERtone podcast, which is moderated by Fam-Lay and Scott Vener and is canceled on Monday. “But right now – more than ever – I think it’s a really good time to enjoy this kind of thing,” she added.
Regarding the Lora DiCarlo line, which featured at CES and caused some controversy, Delevingne said, “We like to call it sex tech” rather than “something like a toy” because it’s not teen. It’s tech … and it’s really fun. “
“Women are usually sensitive beings, aren’t they?” Delevigne adds to the sex toy industry – which she believes has been dominated by male designers and manufacturers – but “all of these sex toys are made and they’re very similar, they’re just too intense. You know, the whole thing about vibration … sex [is] like so much about rhythm and all those things. ”
She said working on the line encouraged her to “have conversations about sexuality … I’ve had the most interesting conversations with my friends … I’ve never talked about it.”
As for her own past love life, “I would never say what I liked or ask about what I wanted. I would assume that somehow they would find out. No, that’s not how it works. You have to ask, you have to talk about it, you know ”
She previously said she was “pansexual” and told Variety last year, “I fall in love with the person – and that’s it. I am attracted to the person. “
Past OTHERtone guests have included Stacey Abrams, Zendaya, Kenya Barris, Malcolm Gladwell, Rosalia, Bill Nye, and artist KAWS.
