Sex Talk Makes Mother and Son Game Super Awkward on ‘The Late Late Show’

On The Late Late Show With James Corden, Corden was playing a fun game of Face Your Mother. The idea of the game was James would ask the two young gentlemen a question, and they would have to guess what they think their mothers would answer. A fairly innocent game that took a super awkward turn when their sex lives became the focus.

It all started when Corden asked one of the guys, Merrick, what he thought was the biggest lie his mom ever told him. Merrick said it had to do with when he walked in on his mom having sex. When he asked what they were doing, they, apparently, responded, “Oh, we’re playing the sandwich game.” Merrick then added, “And the worst part is that they tried to hold up this lie. So what they would do is they would have me sit in the middle of the sandwich.” That last part, obviously, got a big reaction out of Corden and the crowd — but the awkwardness was just beginning.

The next question Corden asked was whether Merrick thought his mom had snooped in his room, to which he immediately replied, “I don’t know, but if she has, she found some crazy s***.” Corden, clearly, had to follow up on that, asking what Merrick was hiding in his room. Merrick hesitated to answer, but eventually, admitted to having collars and fuzzy handcuffs. When Corden asked Merrick’s mom what she thought when she found those items, she said, “I thought the collars were for the dog. And then the fuzzy handcuffs — I actually borrowed those for the weekend in Yosemite.”

The awkward sex talk ended when Corden asked Merrick which one of them had more notches on their bedpost. Merrick responded, “Mom … 200%.”

The Late Late Show With James Corden airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
