Daniel Radcliffe is enjoying 'better sex' in strange overshare

The actor said things have improved since he lost his virginity

Daniel Radcliffe has become quite open of late – and his most recent revelation is that he’s enjoying “better sex”  these days.

The 25-year-old actor, who has carved out a successful film and stage career since the days of Harry Potter, said that when it comes to action between the sheets, things have improved since he lost his virginity - and sober is best.

“For some people sex might be better drunk. But for me and the person I’m doing it with it’s much better sober,” he told Elle.

“I’m one of the few people who seem to have had a really good first time.

“It was with somebody I’d gotten to know well.”

He added: “I’m happy to say I’ve had a lot better sex since then.

“But it wasn’t as horrendously embarrassing as a lot of other people’s were, like my friend who got drunk and did it with a stranger under a bridge.”


Radcliffe has previously admitted that he turned to drink to cope with the pressures of global fame after he was propelled into the spotlight at the tender age of 11.

But he went teetotal in 2010, later confessing that “it was not making me as happy as I wanted it to.”
