Navigating the worlds of sex and romance can be difficult for anyone, although big-name stars have to be a little more careful because of their celebrity status.
However, in order to keep his personal life private, Raven-Symone says she used to ask her partners to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before signing the agreement.

The star said the NDA is “very impersonal” but necessary in Hollywood
The It’s So Raven The actress talked about this in a recent sit down on Howie Mandel Do The Work.
About 47 minutes after appearing on her podcast, Raven-Symoné — with her wife of nearly three years, Miranda Pearman-Maday – goes on to detail some of the difficulties of dating as a celebrity.
She gives an example of how, after Miranda started digging in and trying to get Raven-Symoné to open up, she took precautions against the possibility of information being leaked.
“What are you interested in? Why? What do you want to know? Are you going to write a book about me later?”
She then revealed that she actually asked her partners to sign the NDA, with Miranda signing one about two months after their relationship. In other words, Raven-Symoné plays ARE NOT Game!
Additionally, the star notes that while it feels “very impersonal,” it’s essential to her work.
“[In] all of my relationships when I started dating, I had to get people to sign the NDA. And it took me a while to understand it because it’s very personal, but someone in our position needs to do it.
Raven-Symoné says she often keeps papers on her nightstand: “I had some good times!”
When it comes to the subject, Howie Mandel asked when exactly Raven-Symoné dropped the NDA and she admitted, “Before naughty time comes. No, I’m serious – like, right before naughty time comes.”
The host then asked her if she had papers on her nightstand, to which Raven-Symoné gently replied, “Yes.”
Regarding its NDA policy, Raven-Symoné says it’s just the reality of being a star and lawyers can get them on deck and ready to go in no time!
Then the 37-year-old declared, “Welcome to being a celebrity in Hollywood today!”
She also mentioned that, between real life and the social media buzz, the “dynamics of having an intimate relationship with someone” have definitely changed.
Regardless of the future, though, Raven-Symoné says she’s ready because she still has all of her old NDAs in her filing cabinet.
“I still have them all, so no one can say anything…I had a good time, Howie!”
