In today’s episode, we unpack Rebel Wilson’s beef with “a..hole” Sacha Baron Cohen, who has denied her allegations.

Aussie actor Rebel Wilson has revealed she had her first orgasm just shy of her 40th birthday.

The comedian, whose leaked extracts from her upcoming book have caused huge controversy in recent weeks, confessed that she was the one who gave herself her first orgasm.

After losing her virginity at the age of 35 to her then-boyfriend, fellow actor and comedian Mickey Gooch Jr, Wilson said she continued on her sexual journey.

In 2019, she went on dozens of first dates and says she had sex with two of the people she was seeing, calling it her “year of love”.

She began listening to raunchy podcasts and buying sex toys before having a moment where she “truly experienced an orgasm for the first time”.

“Is this what I was missing out on?” she said she wondered after she climaxed for the first time.

“I’d never really learned about orgasms,” she explained in her book Rebel Rising.

“When I’d had sex over the past few years, I’d never really thought about my pleasure.

“It was more about the guy climaxing, and then pretty quickly sex was over.”

She said the research for her ‘year of love’ taught her that there was so much more to sex “than just the guy getting off”.

“I should have been orgasming too,” she said.

“That should have been a priority.”

Wilson sparked controversy when she claimed in March that actor Sacha Baron Cohen was a “massive a..hole” on the set of Grimsby during filming in 2016.

She said Cohen’s legal team had been attempting to intervene to stop the claims from being published.

“I will not be silenced by high-priced lawyers or PR crisis managers,” she said in an Instagram post.

“The a****** I am talking about in ONE CHAPTER of my book is: Sacha Baron Cohen.”

Cohen’s spokesperson denied the claims.

“While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence,” they said in a statement.

“Including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby.”
