Rosario Dawson learned a lot about sex as a kid. Ironically, that may have been a good thing because the 29-year-old actress didn’t lose her virginity until she was almost legal to drink.
“My mom told me so much about sex at an early age that she scared me: I didn’t have sex until was 20,” the 7 Pounds actress said in a recent interview with the New York Times’ T Magazine.
Dawson went into more detail how her liberal upbringing and almost being aborted by her mom affected her first sexual experience. “I got into trouble at school because one of my friends said, ‘’Lesbians do it with straws.’ And I said, ‘I can tell you how lesbians do it, and there are no straws involved!’ But I think all that talk of sex put me off. The first time I had it, I think it was in a head-to-toe rubber. I was terrified of getting pregnant. My mom was planning to get an abortion when she was pregnant with me. She was at the clinic waiting for her appointment and she felt me move in her stomach. I always tell her it was probably gas. I thank God for gas.”
In the video below, Dawson gets candid and talks more about family, death and sex. She shares how her brother reacted to her nude scene in the movie Alexander and how, as punishment, her mother licked her as a kid.
