Billie Eilish Honestly Gives Pretty Good Sex Advice

When Billie Eilish isn’t making soul-crushing music that makes me want to sob into my pillow, she’s basically being the spokesperson for being your most authentic self. Even though she’s only 22 (a baby), it’s clear in recent interviews that she has a lot to say when it comes to her sexuality. Something, honestly, more people should hear. 

Whenever celebrities talk about their sex lives, it always feels appropriate to brace yourself because you never know how TMI they’re going to get. But when Billie talks about how her relationship with sex has changed in her recent Rolling Stone interview, it’s one of those rare moments when you find a celeb you can actually respect and — dare I say — might even look up to (gag!). 

While the entire piece on Billie is pretty lengthy and covers everything from her upcoming album to her friendship with Hailey Bieber, there is a significant chunk of the piece where she dives into the  taboos around sex and how she’s working to break them down in her own life. And I guess there’s no reason to be surprised that someone who can write a masterpiece like “What Was I Made For?” can be so introspective about her life and sexuality. 

Basically aside from being cool AF, she has a lot of great advice to give about sex. Here’s every sexually empowering thing Billie Eilish said in her Rolling Stone interview

“I basically talk about sex any time I possibly can. That’s literally my favorite topic.”

Same, girl. Talking about sex doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it totally is. Think about it — how many positive conversations about sex are going on around you? 

“… self-pleasure is an enormous, enormous part of my life, and a huge, huge help for me.”

Want to feel empowered? Touch yourself and then touch yourself some more. I promise you’ll feel amazing. 

“I have learned that looking at myself and watching myself feel pleasure has been an extreme help in loving myself and accepting myself, and feeling empowered and comfortable.”

Not only is this super hot (thanks for the tip, Billie), but who doesn’t want to check themselves out when they’re touching themselves?

“That song was actually part of what helped me become who I am, to be real.”

She talks about a new song on her album, “Lunch,” which is about her lusting after a woman. Using your art to come to terms with who you are is exactly why we have art in the first place. 

“… looking at yourself in the mirror and thinking ‘I look really good right now’ is so helpful.”

Self-affirmations (especially if they’re happening while you’re flicking the bean) can literally change your life and your relationship with yourself. You should always feel like Beyoncé (or Billie Eilish in this case).
