Sir Richard Branson Had To Call An Ambulance When He Lost His Virginity

Losing your virginity is one of those things you remember for a long time, if not forever. It can be awkward, clumsy, and hopefully doesn't end with an ambulance being called...

Virgin (lol) boss Sir Richard Branson knows about the latter all too well after he revealed that his first time between the sheets resulted in a rather unfortunate incident with paramedics.

The 71-year-old recounted the story of how his first time went down at the launch of his autobiography Finding My Virginity. Brilliant.

While doing the deed Branson got the stroke his ego really needed, as his then lover began to pant and breathe rather heavily, leading him to believe he was a natural. Unfortunately for both involved, the girl was having an asthma attack.

Speaking at the event - which was held back in 2017 - the businessman said: "I thought I must have been the greatest lover of all time, because the lady seemed like she was enjoying it until she whispered in my ear 'asthma attack, asthma attack'."

Not quite the whisper he expected, we're sure.

He went on to add: "The ambulance brought me back down to earth with a bump."

The title of his second autobiography wasn't his first choice title, the Mirror reports, but is a fairly clever play on the name of his company, Virgin.

He added: "[I wanted to call it] The Second Entry. I think our publishers decided that it would only be sold in Soho backstreet shops so I was talked down of that one.

"I did a book about flying and I wanted to call that one Getting It Up and they wouldn't let me do that either."

Just let the man live.

Speaking of living, he's certainly doing that at the moment as he recently returned from a mission to the edge of space.

The flight, which Branson described as a 'private astronaut experience', enabled him to become the first owner-astronaut to take part in a space mission.

The spacecraft, called Unity 22, was flown up to a great height by a mothership called Eve - named after Branson's mother - and then blasted off up to the edge of space from an aerial launch point.
