Cara Delevingne got candid about her sex life in a revealing new interview.

The actress and model, 26, opened up to RuPaul on his podcast What’s The Tee? about coming to terms with her fluid sexuality, giving pleasure to her partner and more.

“Films and fantasy and books were so incredible to me and I learned so many lessons from that,” Delevingne, who’s been linked with both men and women, said during the frank interview. “That was why I never wanted to accept my sexuality. Disney princesses all love men and that’s the way it is. And I’m not going to be a princess if I don’t like men.”

These days the star, who has recently been spotted with Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson, feels much more comfortable talking about her private life.

“I used to go to clubs but I’d rather have sex than go out now,” the star revealed.

She also disclosed that she first lost her virginity at age 18 and by experimenting with both men and women, she learned that she’d rather give love and pleasure than receive it. “I’m very good at giving love and not at receiving it. I’m the same in bed,” Delevingne admitted.

“I find it quite difficult to receive pleasure and love and things like that, so I love to give,” she continued. But, she noted she “can allow pleasure,” but it’s “harder” to find the right person to give it to her.

“I have found them before, for sure,” the star said.

Based on her previously relationships, Delevingne also discovered that she tends to act differently when dating a woman than when dating a man.

“That whole courting process of power is very interesting, and it’s different with men and women,” Delevingne said. “I’m always very submissive with men. Always. But with women, I’m the opposite. So it’s weird.”

Delevingne has been romantically linked with Benson, 29, for over a year, though the two have yet to publicly confirm the relationship.

Benson was photographed kissing Delevingne on Aug. 14 after they landed at London’s Heathrow airport. Waiting for a taxi, they reportedly kissed multiple times, and Delevingne had her arm wrapped around Benson.

Days earlier, Benson posted a selfie wearing layered gold necklaces, one of which had charms with the letters “A” and “C,” perhaps in honor of her flame. She also appeared to be wearing the “C” charm again at the airport.

In 2018, Benson opened up to PEOPLE Now about how she values privacy. “I think it’s the best way in any relationship,” she said. “I’ve always been very private about them, and I think it’s just better.”

Delevingne previously dated indie rocker St. Vincent before the pair split in 2016.
