Chat show host Jonathan Ross has revealed his first sexual experiences as a teen were with an orange and a Hoover
Jonathan Ross' first sexual experiences were with an orange and a Hoover.
The 60-year-old presenter – who didn't kiss a girl until he was 17 – tried to teach himself how to be intimate by using a piece of fruit and a vacuum cleaner after getting some tips from his mother's women's magazines – but using the Hoover proved to be a "very uncomfortable experience".
Speaking on Rhod Gilbert's 'Growing Pains' show on Comedy Central, he said: "I didn’t know anything about sex.
“I became very interested in women’s magazines and would read my mum’s to try and pick out clues as to what women were.
“One section said, ‘How to get your man better at oral sex’. It said, ‘Peel the orange and the hole in the middle, insert your tongue’, so I felt, ‘This is something I need to learn’...
“I’d read that female-to-male oral sex could be replicated with a Hoover, which was a very uncomfortable experience and not pleasant for anyone.”
The 'Masked Singer' judge – who has been married to screenwriter Jane Goldman since 1988 – has daughters Betty, 29, and Honey, 23, and son Harvey, 26, with his partner.
The chat show host previously revealed he now sees his children more than ever during the lockdown, despite them all living away from home.
He said: "I see them more than I need to, to be honest. I'm online all the time. We're probably, in a way, as a family, spending more time together than not actually being physically together than ever before.
"I know my wife misses the physical contact – she really wants to hug them, she misses that side of it all, but I think overall we just count our blessings.
"None of them are sick, they're all kind of OK and they're all with someone."
