Paul McCartney Says He and John Lennon Twisted and Shouted Their Dongs Together

Old people are awesome. You get to a certain age and you have nothing left to lose. Just look at Quincy Jones spilling all the beans about all the dudes Marlon Brando slept with and who killed JFK or Rita Moreno spilling the beans about all the her Brando and Elvis slept with. Our latest old celebrity to lose the filter between their brain and their mouth like Sophia on The Golden Girls is Paul McCartney, who told GQ about how he and John Lennon used to jack off together.

“What it was,” he explains after I have prompted him, “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.”

There would be about five of them: McCartney, Lennon, and maybe three of Lennon’s friends. As they each concentrated on their mission, anyone in the group was encouraged to shout out a name that would offer relevant inspiration.

“We were just, ‘Brigitte Bardot!’ ‘Whoo!'” McCartney says, “and then everyone would thrash a bit more.”

At least until one of them—the one you would perhaps expect—opted for disruption over stimulation.

“I think it was John sort of said, ‘Winston Churchill!'” McCartney remembers, and acts out the aghast, stymied reactions.

Paul says they only did it once or twice, but still, the idea of two future Beatles jerking it in a basement with their friends is hilarious. I can’t wait for Kanye West to get old and lose his filter. I mean, look at what that dude does say, think about how crazy the stuff he’s holding back is.
