Wow, Hermione! Emma Watson has revealed that she has a secret weapon when it comes to making sure her sex life is as good as it possibly could be — and there's not a magic wand involved!
The former Harry Potter star, 25, said, during an onstage interview with feminist icon Gloria Steinem that she has signed up to the website OMGYES.com, which uses scientific research on female pleasure to help people get better in bed.
"I wish it had been around longer. Definitely check it out,” Watson (who is currently dating actor Roberto Aguire) told Steinem. "It's an expensive subscription, but it's worth it."
A rep for the site, which costs $59 to subscribe to, told the New York Daily News that they're investing millions into the research of female sexual pleasure.
"In short, scientists had never researched actual techniques for pleasure because it's so taboo,” they told the outlet. "We got $4.6 million in funding and are doing that research. Instead of just making academic journal articles, we're making the findings practical, real and experiential in the form of documentary interviews — both explicit and nonexplicit — with real-life women, not actresses."
Watson revealed earlier this month that she's taking a year off of acting in order to focus on two key areas of her life: feminism and personal growth.
“My own personal task is to read a book a week," she said, in an interview with Paper magazine. "I almost thought about going and doing a year of gender studies, then I realized that I was learning so much by being on the ground and just speaking with people and doing my reading,” she said.
During her interview with Steinem, she also revealed that her mission of empowerment is helping her to overcome insecurities she's had for many years.
"I used to hate that I had strong eyebrows. As a 9-year-old I desperately wanted to pluck them and make them two thin lines," she said. "My mother desperately tried to tell me that they gave my face character, don't be ashamed."
