Elvis Was A Perv


Jezebel has a great article today about the book "Baby, Let's Play House: Elvis Presley and the Women Who Loved Him" by Alanna Nash. We knew Elvis was a character, but in Nash's book, it just gets weirder:

"To hear the author's theory, Elvis was both fueled by the loss of his twin at birth (the need to find the missing piece, you see), an obsession with his mother (and yes, he did have a definite physical type), and a need to play Pygmalion and father to very young girls, whom he delighted in making over. A late-blooming "Mama's boy," young Elvis was a flop with girls and super-religious. Later, his qualms about pre-marital sex were assuaged, and he developed a reputation as a ladies' man, boasting hundreds of one-night stands with small-town girls and Hollywood stars. Some say he made them feel special, others that he was a lousy lover. Nash, meanwhile, states that he was just a bundle of hang-ups, who because of a fear of STDs wouldn't actually go "inside" women, never undressed, and was more into watching elaborate tableaux, often involving feet."


The author is supposedly a crackpot, but it certainly is entertaining.

  3. I've also read that once he saw Lisa Marie give birth that he had a hard time wanting to gave sex with her again (but I also heard a sex therapist say on a talk show that a lot of men have that problem.)
