Today, January 8th, marks what would have been Elvis’ 77th birthday if he hadn’t OD’d on the cr*pper. If you think his death was a huge dishonor to an otherwise pristine reputation; you need to hear about his track record, or lack thereof, with the ladies. Still known today as one of the most famous sex symbols ever, it may surprise you to know that The King seems to have left a legacy that would classify him as anything but a straight-up dawg when it came to women. Of course anyone labeled “The King” of anything, especially rock n’ roll, would have had his pick of any woman he chose. This makes Elvis seem even stranger for not doing more pelvic thrusts off stage.
Several beautiful women, many of whom were famous, were linked to Presley throughout his career and some of them claimed that Elvis was a beast in bed and was constantly laying it down. But these accounts seem to be in the minority considering most reports of Elvis’ sex life are less than flattering. Many of the bizarre statements made by his former “partners” and associates include that he was afraid of penetration, he had a foot fetish, he was a voyeur, he was bi-sexual, and even that he was a pedophile.
It is speculated that this odd sexual behavior was a combination of his deep religious guilt, an extreme love for his mother which led to a Madonna-whore complex (putting his mother up on a pedestal as a saint and thinking that all other women are whores), serious drug abuse, and a struggle with homosexuality. I wish I could tell you that The King was banging more starlets than The Rat Pack; but that just isn’t the case. There’s definitely something very off about Elvis in this regard.
Whether if it was part of a poorly crafted cover-up or if Elvis wasn’t as weird as they say he was, he did have quite a resume when it came to supposed hook-ups. What he did with these women is up for debate. Many women who were supposedly part of Elvis’ stable, openly state that they never did anything with him at all. June Wilkinson, a Playmate and actress who went on a few dates with Elvis, says that after going up to his hotel room, Elvis sat her on his bed and sang to her for hours…and that’s it! Cassandra Peterson, who played the sexy, Gothic TV host Elvira, went out with The King once and all they did was talk. Another actress named Peggy Lipton claims that Elvis was “practically impotent.” Here’s a look at the ones that may have been more than a cover for his weirdness in “The Women of Elvis.”
