David Beckham

I Diddled Myself

In front of My Teammates

David Beckham
claims he was the victim of a bizarre hazing ritual as a young professional soccer player ... in which he had to touch himself sexually in front of his male teammates.

Beckham describes the experience in a new documentary called "The Class of 92" about an iconic generation of soccer stars in England in the 90s.

It happened in 1991 -- when Beckham was just 16 -- and he says he had to stare at a photo of a famous Welsh soccer player named Clayton Blackmore and (more or less) masturbate in front of his teammates.

He said, "Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones."

He added, "I was embarrassed when I was saying it on camera let alone talking about it more. But it’s something that we all had to go through. It was definitely something I wouldn’t like to go through again!"

This is so dumb, it seems like every athlete has now been a "victim of some kind of sexual harassment" . Why come out and say it now? Why did u have to wait years and years? I don't believe it.

Poor beckham is that why you married your anorexic looking wife to cope with your sexual past trauma issues because I don't see why else you married a bag of bones?

What kind of guy wants to see a another guy touch himself sexually !!! Exactly...Hazing is ok to a limit. But when you use that as an excuse for your own sexuall proclivities that's a problem. Blurred lines.

Sounds pretty gay. TMZ - you know what diddlers are, right? It's prison slang for child molesters. You might want to re-think throwing that term around.

That is child sex abuse. If that is what it takes to play pro soccer, who needs it? I wonder if a lot of talented players just walked out when they saw what was expected of them in terms of humiliation. This is what leads to more sex abuse in sports. Look what happened at Penn State with that old coot who was a star coach. People just looked the other way and let him keep abusing boys.

I don't think it is anything to be proud of or fond of. It is a dirty shame. All the money and fame in the world can't buy back your dignity and your soul.
