Director Oliver Stone lost his virginity to a prostitute, because he didn't get the opportunity to meet girls at his single-sex school.

The JFK film-maker has confessed his own father set up the experience because all-boy boarding schools and summer camps meant he was never around the opposite sex long enough to develop a relationship.

Stone tells Playboy magazine, "My father was a generous man and I love him to this day for it.

"There's a great tradition of that, I believe. For me it was great."
