It seems pin-up David Beckham can certainly understand why all those men have enjoyed seeing him in underwear campaigns over the years after undergoing his own personal wanking trauma with a male calendar photo.
In the new documentary, The Class of 92, about the influential generation of soccer players in England, the 38-year-old reveals a bit of team hazing he underwent when he was 16, in 1991.
According to Beckham, he had to masturbate in front of his teammates while staring at a photo of Welsh soccer star 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 explains on-camera. "The fact that I had to look at Clayton Blackmore's calendar and do certain things, while looking at Clayton Blackmore...I 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!"
