In this series on best sexual positions we have covered a multitude of situations and conditions for a greater understanding to sexual health.
Famous people, like everyday normal ones, are allowed to have a sex life, but sadly, theirs ends up in tabloids and cheap publicity outlets.
Such a situation happened to two of the greatest personalities of the 1950s and 60’s. This was a one-night stand between Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.
Elvis, like most men in the 1950s were completely taken with Marilyn Monroe.
One day at a chance meeting he met her on a movie lot, and asked her out. She rejected his offer.
Elvis on the other hand, had a very active sexual life, and mostly ladies were arranged by one executive at the William Morris Agency who represented him.
Elvis apparently pressured this agent to arrange a meeting with Marilyn.
At the time of this “arrangement” Marilyn was still married to the famous playwright Arthur Miller, so the liaison had to be kept completely secret.
Marilyn was known to have herself been in some kind of 3-way relations with a pair of bisexual men (Charlie Chaplin’s son and another man) as well.
She was willing to meet Elvis, and did.
Their Most Likely Favorite Position
From information gathered in recent books about both of these Hollywood legends, there is one position that is likely to have been their favorite.
This would have been the doggy style in two variations.
On the bed and against a sofa back.
The correct version of the doggy style (most used in the sexually inhibited 1950s America) would have been for the woman to be on all fours on the bed, but her head close to, or touching the sheet.
Instead of her hands supporting her upper body, she would have rested on her forearms with hands flat.
This position elevates the woman’s buttocks for direct contact to the man, on his knees behind her. This also allows the man to fondle her breasts or even her genital area while he is thrusting.
The variation of this is where the man places the woman over the back side of the sofa, so her head in on the sofa back cushion, but her buttocks are firmly against the rear backside of the sofa, her feet on the ground.
The man enters from the rear, standing, and can thrust in a very vigorous manner. This is pure sex, and as the couple can’t really see each other, they are free to fantasize while the sexual act is in progress.
As we know from history, both of these unfortunate individuals were on drugs at the time, perhaps stimulants (amphetamines or cocaine), and the positions described would have been ideal for a couple so influenced.
As we also know from history, this was a one-off event, it seems both their sexual lives took on some negative elements.
Let us suppose that at the time, the positions mentioned (the agent was in the outer room while the two were together) were accurate.
They would have, most likely, suited the evening which was over not longer after it began.
Such doggy variations can bring great pleasure to those who employ it, and still are classified as pure sex positions (i.e. those without accompanying tenderness). And remain as popular today as they ever were.
