Wilt Chamberlain isn't just known for scoring 100 points in a single game. He's also known to have slept with 20,000 women — at least according to him. As in the case of most myths, it's interesting to find out how it started. In an old interview with Howard Stern, Chamberlain admitted that he lost his virginity when he was "almost five years old."
Big for his age
"I was big for my age," Chamberlain said.
Stern and his co-host couldn't believe that Chamberlain just admitted to having his first sexual experience as a pre-schooler. Stern confessed that he couldn't even see his "pecker" at that age.
Chamberlain remained respectful by refusing to name the girl, noting that she is still alive and well. However, Chamberlain shared how the environment was during his time and how one thing led to another.
"You were never back in the clothing room when you were in grade school? Actually, we were on rugs in kindergarten. And they'd give us these 15-minute sleeping periods. [That's where] those things happened," Chamberlain pointed out.
Chamberlain's relative closeness with women started in kindergarten which eventually developed into him being a womanizer. The great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar even said that every time he saw Wilt, he was with another beautiful woman. Unlike Cap, Wilt was extremely comfortable around them He was very outgoing and knew precisely how to make women laugh. And you know how the adage goes. If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.
Living life to the fullest
Whether Chamberlain's first sexual experience is accurate or not, we can say that he lived a pretty exciting life. Not only was he making it rain in the hardcourt, but he also knew how to carry himself around women. Not everyone can.
One can't help but imagine how Chamberlain would fare in the age of social media where celebrities are constantly under the public's watch. One little mistake, and it'll make the headlines. Following this logic, if Wilt scored 100 points in a game in this era, it would still make the headlines without a doubt. What would follow would be how Chamberlain celebrated his remarkable achievement. A drink or two with his teammates wouldn't be newsworthy. A night out with a load of girls would dominate the headlines to the point of overshadowing his single-game record.
