Washington: Dwayne `The Rock` Johnson who had to undergo hernia surgery recently after he injured himself during a WrestleMania battle with Jon Cena, has revealed that he had a sexy time while recovery from the injury.

The actor and wrestler, 40, revealed to Entertainment Tonight about what happened and how he`s feeling, Usmagazine reported

"About midway through the match, I tore my abductor tendon, as well as my rectus tendon, completely off my pelvis. And then I found out that I had three wonderful hernia tears," the magazine quoted him as explaining to ET.

The WWE star had an emergency hernia operation on Monday, April 22, the night of his latest movie `Pain and Gain`s Hollywood premiere.

So, he missed that event, along with several others tied to the upcoming release of `Fast and Furious 6`.

But to him those recovery days were his sexy times as he got to spend more time with his daughter, 11-year-old Simone Alexandra with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

"There`s a lot of fun swelling in the `cash and prizes` area for the first week and a half. Those were sexy times...It`s a lot of fun pain to go through," he quipped.

"My little girl was so happy that I was able to come home," he told ET.

Johnson posted a photo of himself in a surgical cap and Superman T-shirt shortly after his procedure, along with the caption, "Superman is on the mend...#WeFallWeRise."

He added that it was a really nice blessing to slow down and he felt like it was almost God`s way of saying, `Well, now you`re gonna take a break.`
