Russell Brand has had nine orgasms in one day.

The former sex addict - who split from Katy Perry in 2011 after 14 months of marriage - has admitted the night of pleasure ''exhausted'' him.

Asked how many orgasms he'd had in a day, the star responded: ''Once in Dublin, [I had] nine. And it wasn't even in a day, it was an evening.

''It was crazy there. What a mental night it was. I felt exhausted the next day.''

The 38-year-old actor insisted it wasn't down to drugs because his sexual appetite only increase when he got clean.

He explained to HuffPost Live: ''After I came off drugs, I had a lot of energy that needed to go somewhere, and I thought...that way,''

Although Russell was pleased with his night in Dublin, he also revealed he can be selfless in the bedroom and likes to make sure ''everyone is happy.''

He added: ''I think that if you're having sex with someone, and you're a man, that person's got to have an orgasm first, haven't they?

''Otherwise you've not done your job as a man...You've got to make sure that everyone is happy.''
