Lily Allen has opened up on the steamy secret behind her happy marriage to David Harbour, a month after the pair tied the knot.
The Smile hitmaker – who was previously married to Sam Cooper – revealed she has learned how to have a happy and harmonious partnership after revamping her sex life.
Speaking candidly with Miquita Oliver for the release of her Liberty partnership with sex toy brand Womanizer, Lily, 35, told how a “sexual awakening” led to her being confident in communicating with her Stranger Things actor partner on what she needs.
She also revealed that she became more in tune with her feminine sexual energy in her late 20s when she began experimenting with sex toys as her first marriage collapsed.
“A lot of this journey was not unrelated to the deterioration of my last marriage,” she shared.
Lily, who split from first husband Sam in 2016 and divorced him 2018, added: “I definitely had a sort of sexual awakening in my late 20s. And by the way, I’m not blaming this on my ex-husband; it absolutely wasn’t his fault.”
“It was my fault because I wasn’t feeling empowered and I wasn’t able at that point to communicate my wants and needs and so things broke down. I definitely don’t want that to happen again.”
Gushing over her new husband David, she continued: “I’m very much in love and happy in this relationship and communication in all areas is important.”
Lily also dished on what she likes to get up to in the bedroom with her actor husband, as she revealed that she loves to use sex toys.
“It’s not something that we’re necessarily used to and, you know, men might feel emasculated or something if you pull out a sex toy,” she added.
“I think that’s the empowerment thing and I think if you’re able to talk about it in a way that’s not like ‘this is a replacement for you and what you’re not able to do,’ as more like, ‘let’s have as much fun as possible.'”
Lily secretly married her love David in Las Vegas with the fun pair tying during a ceremony conducted by an Elvis impersonator.
They were married in the Graceland Wedding Chapel and joined by daughters Ethel and Marnie – who she shares with ex Sam.
