Dax Shepard Revealed The Sex Advice He'll Give His Daughters When They're Older

    "If my daughters are horny and they decided they want to have sex, I am very pro sex."

    Back in February, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard appeared on The Ellen Show where they explained that they'd recently had the ~birds and the bees~ talk with their two daughters, Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 3.


    Turns out they were being very scientific about the whole thing, and just as they were getting to what happens when the sperm meets the egg, their daughters got bored and left the conversation.

    Well, Dax has now opened up a bit more about how he plans to address sex once they're a little older.

    Speaking with Gwyneth Paltrow on his podcast, Armchair Expert, Dax said that while there are certain contexts he's against when it comes to sex, he broadly hopes to be "sex-positive" in his conversations with his daughters.


    He said: "It's funny because I tell myself I have a narrative I'm spinning about how I'm going to be as a father of two daughters. Currently, I'm of the opinion, I'm super pro-sex. I am anti–having sex to get approval. I am anti–having sex to get someone to like you or to gain status in a social circle, but if my daughters are horny and they decided they want to have sex, I am very pro-sex."

    Gwyneth agreed, and said that she too aims to be "sex-positive" with her kids, adding that she feels Dax is a "really thoughtful father."

    She told him: "You're a really thoughtful father. I'm always so impressed with how intentional you are of your parenting."

    And, never one to shy away from getting super personal, Dax went on to divulge some very revealing details about losing his virginity.


    He said: "I lost my virginity intentionally to "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs in the basement of my house. Luckily, we got right to the action and I did not make it to the chorus and then I was just very confused. I was terribly young. I was in seventh grade and she was in ninth grade, so I was 12 or 13."
