Cool mom alert!

When it comes to discussing sex, Zac Efron says and he and his mother are comfortable having that conversation. After photos surfaced of the High School Musical star, 21, and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, 20, looking at what appeared to be sex toys, it was time for a chat.

“My mom is like, ‘Zac, what did you buy in a sex shop?'” Efron tells Elle for its April issue. “‘I was like, ‘Mom, calm down, it’s not a sex shop.’ ”

“She wouldn’t have any of it,” he says. “She’s like. ‘I knew you were being sexual!’ But she understood.”

And she followed through, too. “My stocking was full of condoms this Christmas,” he says. “She buys me the economy box.”
