AceShowbiz - Nothing was holding Ian Somerhalder back when it came to the beginning of his sexual life. During an interview on SiriusXM's "Radio Andy", the Damon Salvatore of "The Vampire Diaries" opened up about him losing his virginity at the tender age of 13.
Asked how old he was when he lost his virginity, the husband of Nikki Reed simply told host Andy Cohen, "Uhh, 13." He went on to candidly share, "It was fun! when you're 13 and you're a boy or a girl, boys are pretty on it." When pressed if he lost it to an "older girl," he revealed that the girl was 16 at the time.
In the chat, the 40-year-old actor credited his brother for showing him everything he needed to know about wooing women. "I had an older brother - my brother was seven years older than me, so he taught me a lot - and he was quite a Casanova," he spilled. "He used to have girls in his bedroom all the time."
"What I did was, I went into the bottom corner of his window and I pinched the Venetian blinds. I pinched the blinds down so I'd have a clear view, and then when he had girls over - by the way, Louisiana gets cold in the wintertime, it's freezing - I would go outside, put on all my stuff; my mom thought I was going out to play with the dog. I grabbed my hot chocolate, put on all my clothes, my mittens and stuff, and I would watch, and I learned a lot!"
While he found what he did fun as a teenager, the "V Wars" actor admitted that "it's scary being a parent now." Having welcomed a daughter in 2017, he further addressed parents' diverse approaches when it comes to dating. "All my friends who are guys who have sons are like, 'Yeah, you're going to get a date, yeah,' while all the dads with daughters are like, 'I will kill these little bastards.' It's so vastly unfair," he explained.
