John Stamos talks 'Virginity,' 'Roughness' and the humor in sex

Actor John Stamos has a new show in the works, and the title alone -- "Losing Your Virginity With John Stamos" -- is enough to ensure fans of the former "Full House" star will tune in.

But lest those fans get the wrong idea, Stamos stopped by TODAY Wednesday morning and explained the real story about his upcoming Yahoo! web series.

As it turns out, "Losing Your Virginity" will see Stamos interviewing other stars about their first-time stories.

"It's not dirty, and it's not detail-oriented," he assured. "It's sort of about how you felt at that time -- the emotional part."

And given the inherent awkwardness of first-time encounters, the emotional part can also be the funny part.

"There's a lot of humor," he said of the confessions. "We're going to recreate some of the activity with puppets or dolls or something -- animated possibly. We'll also talk to the person -- the other person -- (and) get their side of the story."

That's right! The show won't be shy about digging for details in the celebrity du jour's past. And Stamos? Why he's not even shy about trying to get similar details from a TODAY show anchor.

"How old were you?" Stamos asked after joking that Matt Lauer would be his first guest.

"There's no way!" Lauer insisted.

But Stamos wanted to know, "16? 17?" When all he got in response was an insincere "31 years old," the actor switched angles. "Was it in a cornfield? Poison oak patch?"

Here's hoping Stamos has better luck getting details from the stars on the show.

"Losing Your Virginity With John Stamos" premieres online later this year, but fans of the actor won't have to wait long to see him on the other small screen. Stamos will play the CEO of a sports and talent agency on the upcoming season of "Necessary Roughness." He describes his character as "duplicitous," but promises his true nature will keep viewers guessing.

His 10-episode arc on "Necessary Roughness" kicks off Wednesday night at 10 p.m. on USA.
