The Rock revealed how he lost his virginity, and we're cringing on his behalf

Why are we so interested in celebrity virginity tales? Your guess is as good as ours, but once again, here we are, fully and shamelessly immersed in a famous person’s recounting of the first time they got it on. So, about how The Rock lost his virginity, you guys…It’s rather interesting, and damn near ended in an arrest (!), but let’s start at the beginning.

In an interview with Elle, The Baywatch star proved that losing your virginity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be (uh, in case anyone still has doubts about that). In fact, having sex for the first time can be downright frightening, especially when a cop catches you and your partner in the act.

Yes, that really happened.

Apparently, The Rock lost his virginity in a park, where a police officer busted him and his partner during their public romp session. And that’s not even the most cringe-worthy part. After bragging on his skills as a first-time (yeah, we know), The Rock broke down the horrifyingly embarrassing story.

“We shouldn’t have been in the park in the first place,” he explained to Elle. “All of a sudden, a big spotlight came on us. Bang. You hear the cop roll down the window and say, “Ma’am, are you okay? Will you come to the car?” She gets dressed, comes to the car. They say, “Are you being attacked?” She says, “No, that’s my boyfriend.” It was a complete nightmare. Some stories are beautiful, but mine was not.”

Oof. Well, that was close! And that story definitely exceeded our expectations in terms of entertainment. But we have to ask: Who else doing a ton of retroactive face-palming on The Rock’s behalf?
