Move over, Shawn Mendes, Gus Kenworthy, and Colton Haynes’ would-be Sean Cody video: Paul McCartney and John Lennon were serving Broke Straight Boys realness before you boys were even born.
In a new interview with GQ, fittingly titled “The Untold Stories of Paul McCartney,” the Beatles frontman and legendary musician confirms one particularly salacious rumor about his past with the late Lennon: that they masturbated together.
“What it was, was over at John’s house, and it was just a group of us,” McCartney explained. “And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying — I don’t even know if we were staying over or anything — we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did.”

McCartney said a group of five — including himself and Lennon — would gather together and shout out the names of famous, beautiful women, like French actress Brigitte Bardot. This inspiration would spur them to masturbate more enthusiastically. But one time, “I think it was John sort of said, ‘Winston Churchill!’,” McCartney shared. Let he who has never thought of Winston Churchill while masturbating in a dark room with five friends cast the first stone.
While the event only happened once or twice, it clearly left an impression on McCartney. “Yeah, it’s quite raunchy when you think about it,” he said. “There’s so many things like that from when you’re a kid that you look back on and you’re, ‘Did we do that?’ But it was good harmless fun. It didn’t hurt anyone. Not even Brigitte Bardot.”
Certainly didn’t hurt Winston Churchill, either.
