Zoe Saldana opens up about her sex life, future family, and femininity for the September issue of Cosmo for Latinas.

Saldana says that good sex means being “uninhibited.”

She explains, “I’m not talking about bringing in a third person or watching porn all night: That’s what leads people to believe they are amazing in bed when they’re the worst ever. Pornography is not sex education – it’s the opposite! Don’t allow insecurities to close you off. Be creative.”

The actress reveals that she finds a man sexy when he “has a natural respect for women.”

“I don’t want a man who worships me: Stay away from those. Worshipping doesn’t count as really seeing me. I like men who work with women, are challenged by women, learn from women,” explains the Guardians of the Galaxy star.

Saldana discusses the challenges of being a woman in Hollywood, telling the outlet, “Throughout history, for every five doors that have opened for a man, only one has opened for a woman. So the moment another woman comes along — especially a younger one — she gets picked on instead of embraced. I’m 35, and I don’t want to be afraid of the 22-year-olds. I’m actually in a better place than they are.”

“I’m definitely not a girly-girl; my sisters and I are thugs!” she says. “Sometimes we don’t even know how to console each other. We’ll be like [pretends to pat her sister on the shoulder], ‘Wanna go get a tattoo?'”

“Our husbands remind us of how feminine we are, but even they don’t know what we’re really like when we’re together,” explains Saldana.

The star, who recently announced her pregnancy, also reveals some of her parenting plans.

“Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak; my sisters and I grew up learning French and speaking English and Spanish, and because of that, we’re able to understand Italian and Portuguese. But I’m going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish,” she says.

Overall, Saldana sees her life as better than ever, explaining, “At 35, you make better choices in men or partners, divorce people and situations that are not right for you, and learn to say ‘no’ with a smile.”
