Vanessa_and_zac Zac Efron‘s mom was as freaked out as his fans were over those photos of the "HSM" star and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens taken in what looked like a sex shop.

“It was Hallows Eve like, two years ago. It was just a costume store,” Zac clarified in the April issue of Elle. “In the back they have an adult section for adult costumes. And this nice older woman asked for a photo.”

But like most people, when Efron’s mother saw the photos, she wondered what her son was doing standing amid sexy lingerie, S&M gear and adult toys.

“My mom is like, ‘Zac, what did you buy in a sex shop?’ I was like ‘Mom, calm down, it’s not a sex shop.’ She wouldn’t have any of it. She’s like, ‘I knew you were being sexual!’ ” he admitted to Elle. “But she understood. My stocking was full of condoms this Christmas. She buys me the economy box.”

No word on if he’s gone through that first economy box yet.
