David Beckham models for his underwear label
Sports superstar David Beckham has revealed that he once masturbated to the image of another male footballer.
The incident was part of his initiation when he joined Manchester United as a teenager in 1992.
The 38-year-old sex symbol was, he says, forced to masturbate while looking at a photo of legendary eighties player Clayton Blackmore.
“Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones!’ Beckham told Metro.
“The fact that I had to look at Clayton Blackmore’s calendar and do certain things, while looking at Clayton Blackmore…”
Beckham, who has branched out into launching a succesful underwear label, first spoke about the incident for the new documentary The Class of 92, which premiered in London on the weekend.
“It was embarrassed when I was saying it on camera let alone talking about it more. But it’s something that we all had to go through. It was definitely something I wouldn’t like to go through again!” he added.
Well, at least he has some idea of what no-doubt many, many young men around the world have done while looking at pictures of him over the years. (And they didn’t need to be forced to do it.)
The Class of 92 documents the rise of six talented young players – Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville – over the period of 1992 to 1999.
