The expecting star went on to say that she was never taught that sex could be a positive thing. “I never got taught that it was about feeling good and connecting with someone,” said Hilary. “I think as a young girl you get taught, ‘Well, you want the guy to feel good’ or something, and that’s really a terrible mentality to go into starting to have sex with.”
The mama of two added that she didn’t relate to the representations of sex she grew up watching on television. “[And the] way the girl reacts on TV, you’re like, ‘I didn’t have that experience. I didn’t react like that. That didn’t feel like that for me.'”
