Would You Take Sex Advice from Gwyneth?

Gwyneth Paltrow has tested fans with a new study on anal sex in her latest Goop website post.

The actress and contributors to her online lifestyle hub have often been criticized for testing the bounds of decency and offering up bizarre beauty and wellbeing techniques, and now Paltrow has raised eyebrows again by talking about the taboo sex act in The Sex Issue of her newsletter, which was first published on Thursday (23Mar17).

In it, the 44-year-old chats about pornography and sex toys, while seeking out expert advice on anal sex.

“First it was shocking, then it was having a cultural moment, now it’s practically standard in the modern bedroom repertoire – or so a quick scan of any media, from porn to HBO (cable TV network), will tell you,” the Shakespeare in Love star writes, “but the reality about anal is not, actually, that everyone’s doing it.”

She adds, “If anal turns you on, you are definitely not alone, but its prevalence doesn’t change the fact that it’s the riskiest sexual behavior in terms of HIV and other STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).”

For her in depth piece, Gwyneth interviewed The Guide to Getting it On! author Paul Joannides.

As well as offering simple controversial beauty, dietary and lifestyle tips, Gwyneth’s Goop contributors also serve up alternative and sometimes controversial ways of looking after yourself.

A top gynecologist slammed the site recently after a writer advised women to use jade eggs to boost sex.

In her Better Sex: Jade Eggs for Your Yoni piece, actress Shiva Rose noted: “Fans say regular use increases chi, orgasms, vaginal muscle tone, hormonal balance and feminine energy in general”.
