The “No” star also shares how porn negatively influenced her early understanding of what sex should be.
Keke Palmer might have thought she was just going on a talk show, but instead an appearance on “The View” changed everything.
The “No” star broke it down for her fans in her latest installment “Baby this is Keke Palmer” podcast, revealing that a comment made by Whoopi Goldberg transformed her relationship with her own sensuality.

“I’ll never forget, I was on ‘The View’ one time, and they were having a conversation about sex, a really great conversation, and Whoopi Goldberg said, ‘Please start pleasuring yourself,'” Palmer recalled. “And I said, ‘That rings true.'”
It also sounded different from his understanding of sex up to that point. She shared that she had always thought it was more about making sure the other person experienced pleasure and not really focusing on herself.
“My identity with sex, it was always based on, ‘Oh, I just have to do this service,'” Palmer explained, saying that his own enjoyment came from his partner’s enjoyment.
“That was, like, depressing and it’s not enough because, well, I realized, like, ‘Well, wait a minute, that’s not you!'” Palmer said. “So it was a journey to try to figure out what works for me.”

She also shared that her relationship with sex and early understanding of what it was and how it was supposed to work was heavily influenced by “pornographic pretend sex,” as she described it.
He said he came to believe it was the way it was meant to be, but admitted, “I’ve never really had a happy ending, if I’m being, you know, slightly frank.” Instead, he has found more personal satisfaction from a “more demure, calmer” and “more emotional” experience.
One thing that surprised her when she followed Goldberg’s advice and began to explore her own satisfaction and pleasure was that what she wanted in private was something completely different than what she presented in public.
“In my daily life I’m very performative,” she explained. “I’m giving you everything I’ve got and I’m going in there and what I learned and realized as I got older is that it’s absolutely not the type of sex I want to have.”

The former Nickelodeon star also recently opened up about feeling “trapped” during her time as “True Jackson, VP.” Partly because she was constantly associated with this fictional character, she made the decision to curate that aforementioned “performative” persona for which she has become known.
“I’m a quirky artist, but I’m an artist, and it’s important for people to understand that Keke is just a part of who I am,” she said. The Hollywood Reporter last week. “It’s been a winding road trying to figure out how to do what I love but also exist outside of that caricature.”
Trying to clarify the distinction between Lauren (her real name) and Keke, Palmer told THR that what he means is that “it’s not like that all the time,” referring to Keke’s weirder personality traits.
“I’ve taken these quirky and interesting aspects of myself and learned to use them in a space that has become a career for me,” she explained. “I’m Walt Disney. This is Mickey Mouse.”
