The summer of 1969 was historic. But not because of the full-scale Vietnam protests, Woodstock, or the fact that a man stepped foot on the moon. No—something WAY more monumental happened that balmy summer in New York.
Ron Jeremy lost his virginity.
Without question, the number one question I get asked all the time: what was that like for me?
I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a Tuesday and, as usual, I had fallen asleep to the sounds of “My Three Sons” (the whistling got me every time). Ron was nestled safely in the arms of his girlfriend, Mindy Friedman, and I was nestled safely under his sweaty boxers. I was at peace.

Oh sure, I’d had this strange head rush before—many times, in fact. But it usually happened more gradually, and always after being lovingly cradled in Ron’s greasy hand.

I’m out. I’m free. I can breathe. What the hell was th---
Goddammnit I’m in again. What the fuck is he doing? I’m feeling sick. I’m really feeling nauseous. Oh my god I’m gonna be sick!
And as if Ron knew, he freed me one last time, and I instantly threw up all over Cindy’s abdomen.
It seemed like the longest night of my life, but in truth, the whole experience lasted about a minute.
