LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Friends star Matthew Perry's life has had its ups and downs, all of which have been well documented. And one of the highlights of that well-lived life was a revelation about the sex life he had in the 1980s. In his new book, 'Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir,' Perry writes about how he long thought he was impotent and how his addiction problems affected his life.

In his book, Perry mentions how he began drinking when he was 14 and experimented with his sex life in the years that followed. However, the first time he wanted to have sex, he could not perform - and as a teenager, he did not have the maturity to put it down to the six beers he'd had just before. According to Daily Mail, this led him to think that he had "a dick that didn't seem to want to work"

In the book, he wrote, "I failed to make the correlation between the booze and my private parts not working. And no one could know about this. No one. So I was walking around the planet thinking sex was something for other people for a long time. Years. Sex sounded awfully fun but it was not in my arsenal. This means in my mind, and pants at least, that I was congenitally impotent."

However, it wasn’t until Perry started dating Tricia Fisher that he realized that wasn’t the case. He describes her as charming and beautiful and also says she dispelled his misdiagnosis. He recalls telling her that he “was impotent and always would be. That it was no use… But I was desperate for her not to abandon me too." He then says Fisher calmly led him to the bed and assured him that his non-performance “was never going to happen again." And the rest was history. "Sure enough, sheer glory for two whole minutes," he quipped.

He thanks Fisher, to whom he lost his virginity, and says she is “a beautiful woman that deserved better.” He also said, "Impotence has not been part of my vocabulary since — just as she promised it wouldn't be. Everything about me, at least physically, works just fine." 

Perry and Fisher dated for several years before Perry eventually broke up with the Hollywood scion.
