Zac Efron says the secret is out: He went to a strip club.

Earlier in the week, New York Post's Page Six reported that he hit Flashdancers Gentlemen's Club in NYC, where he and two pals (including "High School Musical" co-star Corbin Bleu) dropped $2,000 on lap dancers and vodka.

But it wasn't easy.

"The hardest thing was calling your girlfriend before. How do you even start that conversation without feeling like a total a--hole?" Efron asked.

Turns out, "She was fine with it," he said.

Efron denied dropping so much money, though.

"I'm not really a type of guy who does this king of thing often," he stressed. "I had this image of what it'd be like. I've heard a lot about these places, mostly from rap music — they're supposed to be pretty reputable! So I envisioned myself in a nice couch with 'stunna shades' with T-Pain and Usher making it rain money. And it just wasn't like that."
