Cara Delevingne is one of the world’s most photographed people and an award-winning LGBTQ+ icon. On this immersive journey, she puts her mind and body on the line in search of answers, donating her orgasm to science in Germany; making art from her vagina in Japan; hitting up a women-only sex club; taking a masturbation masterclass, and visiting an “ethical” porn set, all in the name of understanding our deepest desires. In every episode, she shares her own personal experiences. Uniquely unfiltered and authentic, there’s no limit on how far Cara’s willing to go to explore what makes us all human.

Since men are having more fulfilling sex than women, Cara wants to find out why. She sets out to fix the so-called ‘orgasm gap’. In Germany she uncovers the science behind orgasms, makes 'vagina art' in Japan and dives into a masturbation class in New York and a women-only sex party in LA, called Skirt Club.

Even though Cara has spent the last 10 years in front of the camera she never had to really be herself. In this new role as tv presenter she was forced to tap into being very inquisitive, curious and without doubt vulnerable.

Getting personal 

Getting personal of course is the point of documentary making and this subject is super personal to Cara. She felt she knew a lot on the subject but instead realised she knew way less about everyone else and also learned a few things about herself.

Subjects – gender, monogamy, sexuality – are topics fascinating to Cara

Cara sees humanity at its base level, is all about connection. "If someone's got something that they're not dealing with or an internal conflict or a barrier they have up, I like to break through it and find something out or expose something that they may not know". 

Cara chose to turn that internal curiosity into making a documentary

For the first time Cara is leading the conversation and chose to step out in this new role.  She invites debate so we can talk about sex and sexuality. 

It may be a little controversial in places, especially for men and as they get to grips with the reality there is an orgasm gap.  And families will find some of it difficult depending on their political or religious standpoints. But it will make people think. 

Every contributor has an unconventional story, which means that they have gone through some adversity.

Episode 1: The Orgasm Gap

What we discovered about female sexuality

Cara was hugely surprised to find there was little progress since we landed on the moon, which was way before the mapping of a clitoris. She was completely shocked by how little education there is.

Although our first reaction is to blame men, the problem arises from both sides. Women have been trained to not ask for what we need nor talk about what we want. Often we don't even know what that is. It feels women always for less-than sex, in other words to serve a purpose usually his pleasure. 

Cara masturbates on the show, which she says she finds easier that being vulnerable and opening up.

Skirt Club founder Genevieve LeJeune – features in Episode 1 The Orgasm Gap

Skirt Club is a women-only sex club. When did you launch it and why?

It's almost nine years now since I started the first Skirt Club in London, now we have 16 across the world. I set it up really because I found I couldn't meet other women who were in a similar situation, looking for friendship and maybe more. In my experience, finding other bisexual women can be difficult.

Why do you think that is?

I think there's stigma attached to bisexuality that prevents women identifying that way. You'll hear a lot of women use the words ‘fluid’ or ‘queer’. They are less controversial. I’ve been called ‘greedy’, ‘indecisive’ and ‘on my way to be gay’. But we have our own letter in the acronym LGBT+, it's right there in the middle.

Is there a shift in the terminology among a younger generation?

How you feel changes every day; embrace what it is, you don’t have to have a label. There’s a lot that is yet to be fully discovered and the more we dig deep into our psyche the more we find out.

Cara also said that young people these days are more likely to say, “I’m bisexual until I know I’m not”.  What do you see?

Yes. Gen Z is totally on that wavelength. Nobody wants to be straight anymore. For Gen Z, straight is kinda dull. I’ve found that a lot of women have curiosities, and they're much more comfortable discovering those with women. They feel safer in all-women environment as they're more accepting of each other. There's no conditioning there and it’s also a new world to explore. My generation, grew up in traditional circumstances, I'm doing my best to undo a lot of that thinking. 

Where do you see the future for bisexual women?

One of my missions has been to normalise this for women, to help them be in touch with their sexuality and to be proud of that. I think there's too much shame in society causing women not to acknowledge that they enjoy sex, especially amongst friends and peers.

Cara attended one of your parties. What was she like?

She threw herself into it! She really does represent a lot of people at once, which is really important. Someone with her status didn't have to do this but she's took that risk which makes her a courageous person. This series opens people’s minds and gets people talking which is so needed. Let’s talk.

Shhhhh...this wasn't Cara's first Skirt Club party.
