Anna Kendrick is a great singer, an Oscar-nominated actress and a really good communicator in bed.
In her new book Scrappy Little Nobody, the 31-year-old gets super candid about sex ― including the one time she gave props to a guy for giving her an orgasm.
After a few months with a boyfriend, the “Pitch Perfect” actress writes that she still hadn’t had an orgasm with him. Her response when he finally got her there? A big high-five.
“‘So hey, first time I’ve had an orgasm during that whole situation,’” she writes. “I raised my hand for a high five. ‘Up top!’”
Apparently, the dude didn’t take the compliment very well ― but Kendrick was right to give props; communication is key to good sex. One recent study found that being comfortable with sexual communication is directly linked to sexual satisfaction.
Kendrick also talks in the book about how she learned to stop looking for love in the wrong places.
“Something amazing happened to me when I hit my mid-20s,” she writes. “I stopped liking guys who didn’t like me back. In fact, I stopped liking guys who were bad people.”
