Paul McCartney Recalls Pleasuring Himself Alongside John Lennon When They Were Kids

Paul McCartney is on the cover of GQ‘s October 2018 issue.

Here’s what the 76-year-old Beatles legend had to share with the mag…

On self-pleasuring at John Lennon’s house: “[I] was over at John’s house, and it was just a group of us. 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…I think it was a one-off. 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. Yeah, it’s quite raunchy when you think about it. There’s so many things like that from when you’re a kid that you look back on and you’re, ‘Did we do that?’ But it was good harmless fun. It didn’t hurt anyone.”

On autotune: “I know people are going to go, ‘Oh no! Paul McCartney’s on the bloody Auto-Tune. What have things come to?’ You know what? If we’d had this in the Beatles, we’d have been—John, particularly—would be so all over it.”

Paul McCartney Says He Once Saw God on a Psychedelic Trip

Paul McCartney is opening up about psychedelic trip he went on while doing drugs in the 1960s.

The 76-year-old Beatles singer says he saw God on one of the drug trips.

“There was the gallery owner Robert Fraser, me, a couple of others,” he told the Sunday Times. “We were immediately nailed to the sofa. And I saw God, this amazing towering thing, and I was humbled.”

“It was huge. A massive wall that I couldn’t see the top of, and I was at the bottom. And anybody else would say it’s just the drug, the hallucination, but both Robert and I were, like, ‘Did you see that?’ We felt we had seen a higher thing,” he added.

Paul credits that incident for helping him believe in “something higher.”

“Having lost both my parents and Linda, and having experienced people close to me dying, you often hear this from others when you say you’re missing a person so much,” he told the newspaper. “‘Don’t worry,’ they say. ‘They’re here, looking down on you.’ And there’s part of you that thinks there is no proof of that. But there’s part of you that wants to believe it.”
