Sexually, what was the deal with Elvis?

Sounds like a creep.

He refused to sleep with his wife Priscilla because she was a mother, and there was no way he'd sleep with somebody who had given birth.

Sounds about right to me.

Elvis was definitely creepy towards teenage girls but he did also date several girls who were around his age in the 50’s like Barbara Hearn, June Juanico, and Anita Wood. Some people say Ann Margret was the love of his life and she was an adult woman.

He had affairs with Barbara Leigh and Susan Henning, both of whom were mothers before they met Elvis. Priscilla has also taken back her claim that Elvis stopped sleeping with her after she gave birth.

Elvis was one of the hottest human beings to walk planet Earth.

Still, I find it very easy to believe Moreno and Shepard.

In fact the best sex I’ve ever had was from average or slightly above average looking guys.

"Some people say Ann Margret was the love of his life and she was an adult woman."

The fact that those people have to specify that she was an adult woman kind of says...

...He'd hit that first, but since she was unavailable there was a whole lot of freaky deaky going on otherwise.

I mean, you're not doing him any favors with that encomium.

by Anonymousreply 21March 23, 2023 11:44 AM

R21 By adult woman I mean she was truly his equal. She was dubbed the female Elvis.

Elvis by most accounts didn’t want to marry Priscilla, he wanted to marry Ann Margret, but he had an obligation to fulfill and the Colonel feared what would happen if he didn’t marry Priscilla.

by Anonymousreply 22March 23, 2023 11:49 AM

He was purportedly uncut and rather ashamed of it. Elvis didn’t like having a stank sleeve, I don’t blame him. Performance anxiety.

by Anonymousreply 23March 23, 2023 11:52 AM

Well… he was a very troubled guy- from the get go- which led to eating disorders, substance abuse and an early death.

by Anonymousreply 24March 23, 2023 2:29 PM

Apparently, Elvis was bisexual. But he lived in a time when it had to be deeply hidden. I honestly believe he could swing both ways.

You can keep super clean. This is not a good reason. He was just lazy because he had bazillions of women who wanted him. Not a big deal to move on if a woman wasn't satisfied.

Bossy and stingy in bed, sang gospel while I fucked him, liked doing it on a rubber sheet to protect his fur coverlet. Made me eat a fried banana out of his ass that his had nicknamed 'the ghetto'. His safe word was 'Gladys'. His jizz smelled of childhood poverty. But, I still get a case of orange Nehi every Christmas. Lovely man.

R5 Are you aware the article you posted is a takedown of Goldman's tabloid hatchet job on Elvis, and not on Elvis himself?

'It is Goldman’s purpose to entirely discredit Elvis Presley, the culture that produced him, and the culture he helped create—to altogether dismiss and condemn, in other words, not just Elvis Presley, but the white working-class South from which he came, and the pop world which emerged in his wake. For such a task, revelations about the moral weakness and ill-spent life of a single individual are useful, but no matter how numerous or squalid such revelations might be, they are not sufficient. It is necessary to utterly destroy the individual’s claim on our attention by leading the reader to feel in every way superior to him; to sever the in­dividual from the social context that might make sense of his work or allow the reader to feel kinship with him; to bury what might remain of that social context in bigotry and stereotyping; to selectively omit important parts of the story being told, and to falsify others; and to surround the enterprise as a whole with calumnies and lies.'

I still think if Elvis had been into men he would have surrounded himself with good looking ones. Very few lookers in the Memphis Mafia.

OP when you say “sleep with”, you actually mean “fuck”, right?

Or did you really mean “cuddle up in our PJs and hope for some zzzzzzz’s”? It can be hard to interpret American euphemisms sometimes.

by Anonymousreply 47March 27, 2023 6:32 AM

It's such a stupid euphemism. Why can't you say 'have sex with' if that's what you mean. You can sleep with someone and not have sex.

Hook up, fuck, bang, nail, are all better euphemisms that "sleep with". Children sleep with parents, people sleep with their pets, etc and in most cases none of them are having sex.

It's gross.

People were raised differently. Some people don't say "fuck". Believe it or not. Some got used to saying "slept with" because it's what people said in front of others. I wouldn't say to my sister "I fucked that person" or "he had sex with her", because it sounds crude.

by Anonymousreply 67March 28, 2023 4:23 AM

R66 It is still an euphemism. The definition of euphemism. Although my least favorite euphemism is 'passed away' instead of 'died'. Passed away where? What if I'm not religious and don't believe in an afterlife? Passed away as in fainted? I loathe that one much more.

[quote] you seriously think "had sex" sounds crude? Even though multiple people are telling you that "slept with" is totally cringe? Why is that?

I wasn't the one who originally used the phrase "slept with" in this thread so apparently multiple people use the phrase.

It's probably generational. I grew up in the suburbs in the 70s, nobody even mentioned the word sex. Sex ed. in school (which was new) was called something new age-y, I forget what, now. Can't help how we were conditioned. I probably would still say someone slept with his/her secretary rather than had sex with his secretary, if I was talking to people I didn't know very well. Sorry if you don't like it, it's not that important.
