How Gypsy Rose Blanchard “Experimented” With Sexuality in Prison

Gypsy Rose Blanchard Gets Candid About Dating, Plastic Surgery Transformation

Prison was life-changing for Gypsy Rose Blanchard in more ways than one.

The 32-year-old—who served seven years behind bars for the 2015 murder of her mom Clauddine “Dee Dee” Blanchard—said she learned a lot about her sexuality during her incarceration.

“A big part of womanhood is learning to become comfortable with our sexuality,” she shared on the June 10 episode of Lifetime’s Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up, “and for years, I wasn’t.”

In fact, Gypsy admittedly spent a large part of her life questioning her sexuality. Though she was “attracted to girls” during her teenage years, the Mommy Dead and Dearest subject said she rarely got a chance to act on those feelings until after being locked up. As she put it, “I got to experiment with that in prison. I think I’ve kissed more girls than I have guys.”

But since there “is a rule against masturbation in prison,” Gypsy said she didn’t have much of a sex drive while behind bars. It wasn’t until she was released in December that she started leaning into her sensuality.

“So, I’m discovering things about myself,” Gypsy continued, cheekily sharing with a laugh, “I’m a freak!”

Elsewhere in the episode, Gypsy credited her now-estranged husband Ryan Anderson for helping her feel comfortable in her own skin, especially during sex.

“I’m self-conscious because I have scars all over my body,” she said. “And so I’m like, ‘Am I going to be what he wants me to be? Am I attractive to him?'”

Gypsy added, “And he’s like, ‘It’s OK.'”
