The whole interview is amazing as well (and lengthy)...
For those that don't care to read the whole interview or to scroll looking:

Who would be the right movie director to shoot the screen version of you losing your virginity?

Unfortunately, it would be either Lina Wertmüller or John Waters. Here’s why: I was 18. It was Beach Week in Ocean City, Maryland, at the Islander Motel, with my high school girlfriend since junior year. Later, we went all through college and it was one of those tumultuous on-and-off things. Anyway, back to the Islander Motel. We had done everything but, and it was just, “We gotta do this.” Both sunburned. Rick Nielsen-ing. We had the TV on because the walls were thin. It was MTV and the songs were Rick Nielsen-ing great—like Cheap Trick’s “Tonight It’s You.” Then, when I’m like, “My God, I’m going to come,” George Michael’s “I Want Your Sex” comes on. I’m like, “I don’t want to lose my virginity to this song!” But I was so Rick Nielsen-ing turned on, I was going to come anyway, even if they had started playing “Deutschland Über Alles.” So it was a great Wertmüller or Waters moment. Of course there’s going to be a bit of comedy in the irony of it
