Paul McCartney candidly shared one interesting story recently involving his Beatles bandmate and late best buddy, John Lennon.

The remaining half of the legendary Lennon-McCartney songwriting tandem said that he, Lennon and three other friends once masturbated together. This he revealed in a GQ magazine interview released Tuesday, Sept. 10.


McCartney explained that this happened over at Lennon’s house sometime before they became famous as a band.

“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 was quoted in the interview.


The Beatles legend narrated that they were encouraged to shout out names that would offer them inspiration. “We were just, ‘Brigitte Bardot!’ ‘Whoo!'” McCartney said. “[A]nd then everyone would thrash a bit more.”

But one of them opted to ruin the fun. “I think it was John sort of said, ‘Winston Churchill!” McCartney recalled, and acted out “aghast, stymied reactions,” according to the interview.

Did they do it often? “I think it was a one-off,” he answered. “Or maybe it was like a two-off. It wasn’t a big thing. But, you know, it was just the kind of thing you didn’t think much of. It was just a group.”

Although McCartney admitted that the incident was raunchy, he also described it as “good, harmless fun.” He added, “It didn’t hurt anyone. Not even Brigitte Bardot.” Katrina Hallare/JB
