The OC's Rachel Bilson shocks with X-rated confession: 'Crazy'

The 41-year-old actress opened up about her sex life on her podcast.

Rachel Bilson has stunned fans after admitting she went most of her adult life before having an orgasm during sex. The star, 41, candidly talked about her sex life on Monday’s episode of her Broad Ideas podcast.

She revealed to guest Whitney Cummings that the experience happened to her for the first time when she was 38 years old.

“Isn’t that crazy?” she told the stand-up comedian.

The O.C. star noted that the milestone was reached after she stopped taking birth control.

Rachel has had a string of high-profile relationships, first dating her O.C. co-star Adam Brody from 2003 to 2006.

She then entered a rocky relationship with ex-fiancé Hayden Christensen for almost ten years, and shares daughter Briar Rose with the Star Wars actor.


After Rachel’s X-rated admission went viral, fans quickly theorised that her ex Bill Hader was likely the partner who gave her an orgasm during sex.

The comedian, 44, dated the podcaster at the end of 2019, which matches Rachel’s timeline.

“They were first linked in fall 2019 and made their red carpet debut in 2020. She turned 38 in August 2019. Good for them both,” one fan summed up.

“Newfound respect for Bill Hader,” another quipped.

“Guess Anakin Skywalker needs some help wielding that lightsaber, huh?” a third joked.

“Adam Brody and Hayden Christensen dead in a ditch. Bilson started dating Bill Hader when she was 38 so…” another remarked.

Fans confess X-rated secrets

It didn’t take long for fans to also jump on social media and reveal what was wrong in their own sex lives.

“Try being 46 and I still never have [experienced this],” a fan admitted.

“No…because I’m 29 and I still have not experienced an orgasm. So I believe her!!!” another exclaimed.

“This is not uncommon and I love that she’s open about it,” a third pointed out.

“Can we finally talk about this not being unusual for straight women…like bad sex is expected and tolerated and I cannot f**king figure out why,” another wrote.
