Melbourne: Lady Gaga has revealed that she lost her virginity when she was a teenager and also admitted that it was a ``terrible`` experience.

The ‘Born This Way’ singer said she didn’t enjoy sex for the first time because she wasn’t fully prepared.

“I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 17. But I have to say even then I wasn’t ready and it was an absolutely terrible experience,” a daily quote her as telling Britain’s Grazia magazine.

“It wasn’t good at all. I have never not had safe sex, I have always asked a guy to be tested and to use protection, which was always my rule. Otherwise you’re playing Russian Roulette,” she said.

The 24-year-old hitmaker – who is presently dating bar owner Luc Carl, who she has known since she was 19 – says she didn’t enjoy sleeping with someone until much later and feels making love is a way of expressing “vulnerability”.

“I never actually enjoyed sex until two years ago. It was a proper monogamous relationship in which I felt free enough to trust and I had enough self love,” the singer said.

"Sex is the ultimate expression of vulnerability and for me it was important to know that it was a proper relationship so it was sex as a source of love and nothing else,” she added.
