Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has revealed his secret shame - he lost his virginity to a babysitter at the age of 11.
The rocker has confessed he became sexually active long before the legal age of consent of 16 in his native Iowa, and admits his first partner was "f**ed up" for wanting to sleep with a young boy.
And Taylor felt so ashamed after the experience that he avoided sex for two years.
He tells Kerrang! magazine, "I am so f**king ashamed to say that I lost my virginity when I was 11 years old... It was with a very f**ked up and very giving babysitter, let's put it that way!
"I don't think I was very good at it that first time, though. After that I had a dry spell until I was 13. I was a bit better at it all by then, I think. I hope so anyway."
