5 Celebs Get Real About the First Time They Had Sex

Let’s be honest, when it comes to losing your virginity, you expect it to be just like the movies: bright red rose petals scattered throughout the room, some sensuous music, and somehow, both you and your partner are supposed to automatically know what to do. It’s no secret that the first time doesn’t always go as planned, and even celebrities understand that too.

See what these five celebs had to say about the first time they had sex.

Joe Jonas

“I lost my virginity to this girl named Ashley. You can probably just Google it. It’s pretty easy to figure out. I dated a girl named Ashley, so just Google it to figure out which Ashley that is. It’s quite the great story because I didn’t have any condoms, so I went to our drummer, Jack’s room, who was my roommate at the time and I demolished his room looking for them. Found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished because I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids.” – via Reddit AMA

Kim Kardashian-West 

“‘When I did want to have sex the first time I was almost 15 … I was like, ‘I think I’m going to, or I want to,’ and she [Kris] was like, ‘OK, so this is what we’re going to do, we’re going to put you on birth control,’ and she was, like, really open and honest with me.” – via Cosmopolitan

Ansel Elgort

“I was 14. I had no clue what I was doing, and neither did the girl … I didn’t even make the lighting good. That’d be one thing I’d do differently. It was, like, fluorescent, bright bedroom light, like, over the covers.” – via Elle

Katy Perry  

“Lost [my] virginity at 16 in the front seat of a Volvo sedan while listening to Jeff Buckley’s album ‘Grace.'” – via GQ

Shia LaBeouf  

“For some reason, I was trying to portray myself as a man who had [had sex] many times in the past. I didn’t tell the girl I was a virgin. I was all, ‘Don’t worry, babe. I’m gonna handle it tonight.’ And meanwhile I was shaking in my boots. . . . I remember putting a pillow underneath her because I had seen that in a porn movie . . . [it] put her at a weird angle, where I couldn’t get in correctly. I’m not extremely well-endowed . . . and clearly this wasn’t the move.” –via PopCrunch 

Celebrities are just like us, and sharing their same cringe-worthy first time sex stories makes them all the more human.
