​David Beckham Experienced Awkward Soccer Hazing​​

David Beckham experienced an awkward hazing to test his manhood, but the soccer star who would come to be known as “Golden Balls” felt far from golden as his teammates roared with laughter.

At the tender age of 16, he was forced to pleasure himself while staring at a large photo of a 1980s soccer hunk as the rest of his team looked on, howling and mocking his performance.

It was an act of hazing from Beckham’s days on Manchester United’s youth club that still makes the British midfielder cringe when he talks about it all these years later.

“Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team — that was one of the most uncomfortable ones,” Beckham, now 38, confesses in a new documentary about Manchester United’s vaunted youth movement in the early ’90s.

Beckham, before he was an internationally known sex symbol, let alone a legendary winner on the pitch, was forced to touch himself while eyeballing a calendar picture of Clayton Blackmore, a Welsh star who played for Manchester United in the 1980s.

In retrospect, the irony was magnificent.

“The fact that I had to look at Clayton Blackmore’s calendar and do certain things, while looking at Clayton Blackmore — I mean it was embarrassing to talk about!” Beckham admits, according to Metro, which first reported the humorous tale from the documentary “Class of 1992.”

Beckham’s confession of how he was forced to get hot and bothered for the sake of the team’s entertainment was a juicy bit of Manchester United history to emerge from the documentary.

The film, which debuts in London on Sunday, details how Beckham and five other young guns who broke in with Manchester United in the early ’90s — including noted players Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs — represented a new generation of soccer stars.

For Becks, his career at Manchester United, for which he played his first Premier League match at age 17 in 1992, led to celebrity that outpaced his prowess on the field.

He won six Premier League titles with Man. U during a 20-year professional career. That success morphed into an international fashion fame that in some ways was enhanced through his relationship with his fashionista wife, Victoria, aka Posh Spice.

He has appeared in countless fashion shoots and ad campaigns, sometimes wearing nothing more than his underwear, to the delight of female and male fans the world over.
