Camila Cabello is not opposed to breakup sex.

On the latest episode of Call Her Daddy, released Wednesday, the "Bam Bam" singer revealed her thoughts on getting back in the sack post-split.

"I feel like if you're wanting to have breakup sex you're probably gonna hit each other up next week," Cabello, 27, said. "There's still something there."

She added, "And like I said, I'm sorry, I'm a proponent. I don't believe in the forbidden fruit — if you want it do it. Kinda like 'date him until you hate him' vibe. I don't actually hate anybody but I'm saying do it until it's out of your system."

Cabello further explained that her friends don't agree with her — but she's found that it's been "helpful for me."

"I also think the hard part is that sometimes you do waste some time in that way," the "Havana" singer added. "You're still entertaining something and maybe there could be somebody out there that's better."

Ultimately, Cabello is all for breakup sex so long as the person is doing the "inner work" and asking what the motive behind it is.

Elsewhere in the conversation, Cabello — who is currently single — opened up about her brief reconciliation with Shawn Mendes after their breakup in November 2021.

When podcast host Alexandra Cooper asked what her thoughts are on getting back together with an ex, Cabello said she was a fan.

"I personally think it's helpful. You can't forbid things from me because I will want to do it more," she said. "If I want to text him, I'm gonna text him."

"You need to know that it's not going to work and then you need to be over it and you need to be like, 'I did it. And I know,'" she added.

On the reconciliation, Cabello said those same thoughts were going through her mind.

"I'm kind of impulsive in that way I would say. I feel like it if I feel it I say it and I'm not really good at not doing that. Because then the worst place for it to live in is my mind and then I'm like Ryan Gosling in The Notebook building a house for this person. So I would rather say it and see what happens and then wake up then next morning and find out that it's been heavily documented," she said.

"It is what it is. It was a great route, it was a fun time, it was a fun moment," she continued. "I will always care about him and love him."

She also revealed that what led them to split the second time around was realizing that it wasn't a "fit" on both ends.

Cabello and Mendes first went their separate ways in November 2021 after two years of dating. But in April 2023, they were spotted kissing at Coachella, and a source told PEOPLE at the time that they'd "always seemed to have a special connection" and had "been friendly for months."

Though the pair were spotted out and about multiple times together in New York City and Los Angeles sharing some PDA — including at Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stop in New Jersey in late May — reports surfaced in early June that they'd broken up once again.
