Paulina Porizkova has shared another sultry photo of herself modeling black lingerie in her New York City apartment while sparking a frank discussion about women and casual sex with her fans.
The 55-year-old supermodel took to Instagram on Thursday to post an image of herself posing next to her bedroom vanity wearing a black bra, matching underwear, a garter belt, and thigh-high stockings.
Paulina topped off the sexy look with a pair of back stilettos, and in the picture, she can be seen resting her hand on her vanity for balance while bending her leg and holding onto the back of one of her heels.
Sultry: Paulina Porizkova shared a photo of herself modeling black lingerie on Instagram Thursday while sharing her thoughts on women and casual sex
Stunning: Production designer Keith Raywood took the photos of Paulina during the shoot at her New York City apartment. The model shared this image six days ago
The cover star’s face is turned away from the camera, but her reflection can be seen in the mirror in front of her. It appears to be dusk, and her bedroom is lit by a small lamp at her vanity that gives off a golden glow.
Paulina’s beloved cat Oskar even made it into the shot and can be seen sitting on the vanity, facing the mirror in the stunning image taken by production designer Keith Raywood.
In the caption, she shared her thoughts on whether or not men and women are wired differently when it comes to sex.
‘Having been raised in Sweden in my sexually formative years, I can honestly say I’ve never had sex FOR a man. Meaning, to PLEASE a man,’ she wrote. ‘Sure, if you are in a long term relationship, sometimes you will do your partner a favor. But that’s love. Can you have sex without love?’
Paulina explained that the majority of men have no problem having casual sex, while ‘most women insist on a connection before they are turned on.’
‘This may be basic biology: when having sex, it’s always the woman who gets stuck with the check,’ she noted. ‘So, it would make sense she makes sure she can trust her partner.
‘But since the advent of the pill, women have choices. Not as many as men, to be sure, but way more than in the past. So is this still relevant response to sex a social construct, or a biological inevitability?’
Candid: In the caption of her recent post, she shared her thoughts on whether or not men and women are wired differently when it comes to casual sex and asked fans for their opinions
Paulina argued that women ‘feel as much pleasure from sex as men,’ if not more because they ‘can have multiple orgasms, and have sex far longer.’
‘It’s true that when one is in love, the sexual act takes on the “making love” aspect. It enriches and brings sex to another level. But what’s wrong with basic sex?’ she asked.
‘After all, you don’t need every meal to be a gourmet delight. Most of the times you eat to satisfy your body.’
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model ended the post with a message to her male followers, saying: ‘GENTLEMEN, this is NOT an invitation to make lewd comments. I’m truly curious how my fellow sisters feel about this topic.’
Paulina’s followers continued the conversation in the comments, and she responded to a few of the posts.
‘In my humble opinion, the bias is still there. [Women] are still judged on the number partners,’ one woman pointed out, prompting the model to add: ‘There should be no such thing a slut!!!’
Another woman asked if women are just wired differently than men.
Honest: Paulina, who recently shared a nude photo of herself, argued that sex may be even more enjoyable for women and shared she is more like a man when it comes to it
Mourning: Earlier this week, Paulina shared a photo of a framed picture of herself with her late husband Ric Ocasek, saying he will be ‘missed forever’
‘That’s what I wonder,’ Paulina responded. ‘Cause I’m wired more like a man that way.’
‘I think it depends on your personal sexual history and what you’ve been through,’ Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi countered. ‘Anything is possible if you have trust, and feel personal safety, at least for me.
‘Because while one may not need to love to enjoy sex, one needs to feel safe to realy let go. And sex is great when you can really let go.’
Paulina shared her first photo from her boudoir shoot six days ago with a thoughtful caption about the advantages and disadvantages of beauty.
In the image, is sitting on a bench and leaning over her piano with her back facing the camera, leaving only a sliver of her face visible.
While there is some light coming in from the windows, a lamp in the front of the room is giving off an amber haze that adds to the sultry quality of the photo.
‘Being pretty is not a privilege. It’s a gift,’ she wrote in the caption. ‘The difference? Privilege is an advantage, a benefit. Beauty may confer those on you, but is not one on its own. What you do with the advantages or disadvantages of beauty is up to you. A gift is an unearned endowment.’
Paulina explained that people tend to assume that gifts are ‘always a blessing,’ but that isn’t always the case.
Loss: After Ric’s death in September 2019, Paulina learned he had cut her out of his will, claiming she had ‘abandoned’ him, leaving her without any money to live off of
Family: Paulina and Ric had two sons together, Jonathan, 27, and Oliver, 22 (pictured in 2016)
‘What if you got a free Porsche for life, but live on an island with nothing but bike lanes? And have no idea how to drive? Is it still a gift?’ she asked.
‘I always thought of pulchritude as extra cash in a transparent pocket. Everyone can see you have it. It will make it easier to get into that crowded hip restaurant, but it will also be the reason for you getting mugged when you take the low-lit side door.’
At the end of the caption, Paulina opened up about why she wanted to share the sexy photo, saying she is aware that it will garner some unwanted attention.
‘I UNDERSTAND THAT A PHOTO LIKE THIS WILL DRAW OUT THE LEWD COMMENTS FROM MEN and trolls, but sisters, this is not about competition, this is about claiming power,’ she said. ‘My choice. My body. My fab at fifty-plus.’
The mother of two credited her incredible figure to her favorite workouts. — NoFar Method pilates and YouTuber Aqua Jade’s dance cardio — as well as EmSculpt, a non-invasive body contouring procedure that builds muscle and burns fat.
Just days after posting the lingerie shot, she shared a photo of a framed picture of herself with her late husband Ric Ocasek, who died in September 2019 at age 75.
‘Of course you’ll be missed for ever. #loveneverdies #ricocasek #missed,’ she captioned the image.
Paulina has been candid about her struggles with depression, anxiety, and anger following The Cars frontman’s death.
They were separated and going through a divorce when he passed away in their shared Manhattan townhouse. After Ric’s death, she learned that he had cut her out of his will, leaving her without any money to live off of, including her previous earnings.
Paulina, who shares sons Jonathan, 27, and Oliver, 22, with her late husband, has admitted to being angry with him, but she ultimately blames herself for her financial woes, saying she regrets not having a prenup.
