She’s already a multihyphenate talent, but with Planetary sex with Cara Delevingnethe eponymous supermodel-actress-activist is also working toward the title of “sex guru,” if her new docuseries are to be believed.
In the tradition of other Stars-go-Exploring titles such as Limitless with Chris Hemsworth and Down to Earth with Zac Efron, Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne is a new documentary series that follows the British actress (Only murders in the building, suicide squad) while exploring sexual traditions, taboos and issues such as gender identity, “ethical” porn, poly relationships and more.
In each hour-long episode, Delevingne meets a variety of sex experts and members of the LGBTQ+ community (such as RuPaul’s Drag Race Star Gottmik) through Germany, Japan, South Africa, the USA and more to gather different perspectives on human sexuality.
“As someone who has struggled for years to understand my sexual identity, I am thrilled to be collaborating with Hulu, Naked, BBC Three and Fremantle to make a series that will transform so many people’s views through honest and personal conversations could.” Delevingne said in a press release about the series.
The star’s statement continued, “I can only imagine what a series like this would have meant to the 14-year-old self who struggled to understand feelings that were perceived as unconventional or different. When our series helps a young person have an easier conversation with their parents, we’ve achieved one of our many goals in creating this series.”

Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne premise
On this “immersive journey,” presenter Cara Delevingne “risks her mind and body in search of answers, donates her orgasm to science in Germany, makes art out of her vagina in Japan, starts a sex club for women only, engages in masturbation… master class and visiting an ‘ethical’ porn set to understand our deepest desires,” reads the series’ official synopsis.
“In each episode, she shares her own personal experiences,” the synopsis continues. “Uniquely unfiltered and authentic, there’s no limit to how far Cara is willing to go to explore what makes us all human.”
Despite Delevingne’s personal openness about her own sexuality — the performer came out as pansexual in 2020 and has been an outspoken advocate for queer rights — she said the documentaries expanded her understanding of sexual expression and helped her confront her own blind spots and boundaries .
“I went into the masturbation seminar thinking it was going to be a classroom and I had a notepad, and instead it was a pink leather gym mat on the floor with six people saying, ‘Well, take off your underwear. That’s the lube,'” Delevingne said diversity (opens in new tab). “I didn’t realize I was a prude. I guess I’m a pretty hip, young, cool, down girl, but I was like, ‘Sorry, huh? I’m sorry, no, absolutely not, I won’t.’ But I kind of did everything I wanted to do.”
Overall, however, the host was willing to take on the daring subject. “I was more like, ‘What are we going to do today?'” she said diversity. “Because every day was completely different. I’m used to being a chameleon, but that was absurd. One day you’re going to have blood drawn during orgasm, the next day you’re going to a porn library. I was like, ‘Right, okay, screw my head back on.'”
And, Delevingne said, she’s benefited from the show as much as she hopes viewers will. “I feel like I needed that in my life, honestly,” she said in her diversity Interview. “Maybe not on camera — I mean, that was something I wanted to do for other people, but I’ve grown up a lot in terms of myself. I had decided to take a step back from love and relationships a while before I did, and it made me realize again how much I needed to fix certain things in my life and move on after that. I’ve really grown up a lot.
