Pamela Anderson had some ‘splainin’ to do before taking her two sons to see “Borat” – namely, her sex tapes.

“They really wanted to see Borat, and I finally had [to] break down and let them because all their friends had,” the former Baywatch star, quoted by Britain’s Sun, says of sons Brandon, 10 and Dylan Jagger, 9.

The boys’ dad is Anderson’s ex-husband, rocker Tommy Lee, who made a honeymoon tape with his then-wife. The subject of the tapes crops up in Borat as its hero, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, goes on a cross-country road trip in search of his love object, Anderson.

According to Anderson, 40, “I said [to the boys], ‘There are a few things we have to talk about before you see Borat. And they go: ‘We know about the magazines.’ So that was one gone!”

As for whether Brandon and Dylan consider her a sex symbol, she said, “They don’t think of me like that. They know I’m at school with the neon vest parking cars and doing safety patrol.”

But came time to watch Borat, Anderson verbally censored the section mentioning her X-rated action. “I kind of went ‘la la la la la la la’ over the parts I didn’t want them to hear,” she said.

“Actually, I did tell them, I said: ‘You know, when your dad and I were first together we used to video tape everything. Everybody’s naked, hugging, kissing, all that good stuff and someone stole the tape. And I remember when we were watching the film, and Dylan goes: ‘You mean everybody has seen this?’ And I said, ‘Yes.’ ”
