Who’s Kinky and Famous? 7 Celeb Confessions About BDSM

BDSM seems always to be toeing the line between ‘interesting’ and ‘forbidden.’ You could say the same thing about celebrities. But Hollywood isn’t what it used to be.

The trend these days is for influencers to project being relatable and available on social media. Similarly, talking about sex — even weird, freaky, kinky sex — is no longer so taboo.

Keep reading for a sizzling list of famous celebrities who’ve confessed to dabbling in BDSM.

1. Angelina Jolie

Years and years before Fifty Shades of Gray, Angelina Jolie was Hollywood’s reigning Face for taboo and kinky sex. Her second husband, Billy Bob Thornton, has been vocal and detailed in interviews about the blood lockets she got him to wear around his neck.

She’s also known for her extensive knife collection and even once confessed to using them in a sexual encounter. “Early on in my first sexual relationship, I got knives out and had a night where we attacked each other.”

If you haven’t heard of either, blood and knife play belongs to the deeper, more extreme side of BDSM. The element of danger and extra preparations involved classify both under risk-aware consensual kink (RACK).

Angelina Jolie has since asserted that her previous life of risky kinks and S&M no longer had a ‘place in her life.’ We’re not surprised. After marrying and raising children of her own, of course, she’d want to settle down.

2. Eva Longoria

Although she’s particularly known for her stint on Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria must be anything but. The actress and producer has never been one to shy away from questions about sex. She has repeatedly talked about sex positivity, sex games, and even bondage in multiple interviews.

There’s more to bondage and submission than just the aesthetic — even though looking the part can be really key to setting up a scene. If you doubt whether she really gets it, here’s a pretty famous quote of hers from an interview with Page Six:

“I’ve been tied up with silk scarves. There’s something very sexy about being submissive. Because your guard is down, you have to totally surrender to something like that.”

3. Armie Hammer

For all of the sex-positive and proud kink representation you might be able to now find in Hollywood, Armie Hammer would be your cautionary tale. The reactions drawn by the raunchy tales he would tell during interviews quickly flipped from fascination to horror as stories of his risky and violent behavior came to light.

The ensuing scandal of 2019 and onwards would center on many issues about practicing casual sex and even BDSM. Some of those who came forward about him (at some point, even his wife) described being coerced into sexual scenes or activities they were neither prepared for, or comfortable with. We won’t get into it more; it gets graphic. But among Hammer’s laundry list of rumored sexual fetishes included knifeplay, dominance, roughplay, and shibari.

It’s important to know and always remember: Negotiating scenes and making sure of explicit consent is super important in kink.

4. Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne and her then-girlfriend actress Ashley Benson were spotted in August 2019 carrying a unique piece of furniture into their home. It was a not-so-discreetly packaged bondage play sex bench. She would later acknowledge its existence in a cover interview with Marie Claire.

More recently, the model and actress made headlines for her now-infamous Met Gala outfit. Her white top boldly read (in red) to ‘Peg the Patriarchy.’ Statement or more than, who knows?

5. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera is definitely no stranger to BDSM as a theme. Even though she’s had a decade-long, illustrious, and still-going successful career, Christina has loved to incorporate elements of burlesque, fetish, and bondage gear into her concert ensembles and music videos. Even her lyrics haven’t ever been too shy to explore the nuances of sex or feeling sexy.

She had this to say about her 2010 musical film Burlesque. “I’m just a very sexual person by nature – that’s partly why I agreed to do the movie that I did – I just think the art of the tease is a beautiful art form.”

6. Amber Rose

No apologies given or required. Amber Rose has always been candid. Whether it’s about posing nude, her career as an ‘exotic dancer’, or being a proud AF feminist.

There’s a lot to learn through Amber Rose’s no-holds-barred approach to feminism. You are more than who you had sex with. And also, there’s no shame or guilt to be had about having or wanting sex. It’s a powerful message, to say the least, not unlike her preferences in the bedroom.

Here’s what she said on the set of her own show in 2016. “I like to take a really rich, powerful man and make him squirm like a little bitch…I get off on that.”

7. Rihanna

We’re not at all surprised about The Rihanna dabbling in BDSM. After all, she did write The BDSM Anthem S&M. She sings, ‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me.’

However, in real life, she’s admitted that sex scenes can still be hot even without all the props. This is what she told Rolling Stone about being into spanking:

“I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs… I’d rather have him use his hands.”
