When asked if he would do anything different about having sex for the first time, Radcliffe told the mag, "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 continued. "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."
