In an interview with The Guardian, singer Chris Brown opened up about his sexual history, admitting that he “lost his virginity” when he was just eight-years-old. From the Guardian:
He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.” (Now 24, he doesn’t want to say how many women he’s slept with: “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”)
Rapper Lil’ Wayne made a similar admission back in 2009, when he told a reporter that he lost his virginity at 11 to a girl who was 13. Both men recount their first sexual experiences as evidence of their budding sexual prowess and not something along the lines of assault, which isn’t unique since it’s a lot harder for men to admit that they’ve been sexually assaulted.
