Maksim Chmerkovskiy has opened up about the way he lost his virginity and it's probably a young man's dream.
During a Tuesday appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show, the former Dancing with the Stars pro acknowledged he was a "late bloomer" when he first had sex with a -- wait for it -- cougar supermodel.
"For me, it was 16," the now-35-year-old ballroom dance champion told Vieira of his first time.
"I don't think that's so late," Vieira quipped.
"No, no, listen. According to Mario Lopez, I'm like a nun," Chmerkovskiy said, referencing how Lopez had lost his virginity at age 12. "I grew up in the inner city as well, you know, the outskirts of Coney Island in Brooklyn. I know what he's saying. You know, things progress a lot faster."
Chmerkovskiy then discussed his unusual first sexual encounter.
"It was with a supermodel that ended up lying about her age," he explained as the live audience laughed. "I swear to God! Lied about her age. She was about 10 years older than what she said and it made her into, like, early 30s. And it was amazing."
Vieira joked about how losing her virginity certainly wasn't amazing because she had expected birds to sing or something extremely romantic to happen.
"That's a misconception. The girls always expect the birds and everything, like every time you have sex, you have to have like a basket of pigeons that you let out," Chmerkovskiy said with a laugh.
"Honestly, I think whatever the situation is, as long as it's wholesome and as long as it's right, you know, it's still an experience you look back at and say, 'I was an idiot, but it was awesome.' That was my experience."
Chmerkovskiy wonDancing with the Stars' eighteenth season with celebrity partner Meryl Davis. He decided not to return to the show for the most recent edition.
