Life changing: Cara Delevingne, 30, says making her documentary Planet Sex changed her life after she was left suicidal over her sexuality

She told the Mirror: It changed my life a lot. Now I am happier than ever. I feel really, really proud of what we’ve created.

Of her sexuality, she added, “I can’t talk to anyone about it.” I had a lot of inner homophobia and shame. I thought I was abnormal.

I considered ending my life, as I have many times, and I’m so glad I didn’t because if I could help any other child it would mean the world to me. It meant the world to that little boy that I was. Or am I.

Cara rose to fame after being signed to modeling agency Storm as a teen, and has acted in a number of films, including Suicide Squad and Paper Towns.

The star’s documentary is about desire and attraction and she said it “made me want to be louder about what I believe in. It’s time to stop hiding.”

Cara admitted she had never been to Pride before and said most of her friends identified as straight but the documentary made her feel more connected to the LGBTQ+ community: “I have a lot of gay friends now,” she said.

While filming the show, the supermodel gave researchers a sample of her blood before and after she experienced an orgasm so they could study its effect on her body chemistry.

She agreed to the research as part of an investigation into the “climax gender gap,” a term used to describe why men are more likely to orgasm during sex than women are.

Speaking outside a hospital in Germany, Cara tells viewers of her new six-part series, “I’m here to have an orgasm and donate it to science.”

I think female libido has definitely been suppressed. I know from my love life how sexual a woman can be so you think that in the 21st century men and women should have equally fulfilling sex lives, right?

Well, prepare to be shocked. When it comes to orgasm, there is a definite gender gap.

Scientists say that 95 percent of men who orgasm during intercourse, but only 65 percent of straight women do.

To be honest, I think that sounds pretty high, most of my straight girlfriends say it’s probably more like 15 or 20 percent.

Lesbians and queer women definitely seem to have it better.

The experiment measured the levels of endocannabinoids in her system before and after orgasm.

Similar to the active molecule in cannabis, the chemical reduces anxiety, increases euphoria, and amplifies the pleasurable response to sex.
