In this series on the best sexual positions we have covered many situations and conditions for a better understanding of sexual health.
Famous people, like normal everyday people, are allowed to have a sex life, but sadly, theirs ends up in the tabloids and cheap advertising media.
Such a situation happened to two of the greatest personalities of the 50’s and 60’s. This was a one night stand between Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.
Elvis, like most men in the 1950s, was head over heels in love with Marilyn Monroe.
One day, in a chance encounter, he met her in a movie lot and asked her out. She rejected her offer.
Elvis, on the other hand, had a very active sex life, with most of the women groomed by an executive from the William Morris Agency who represented him.
Elvis apparently pressured this agent to set up a meeting with Marilyn.
At the time of this “arrangement”, Marilyn was still married to the famous playwright Arthur Miller, so the relationship had to be kept completely secret.
Marilyn was also known to have had something of a three-way relationship with a couple of bisexual men (Charlie Chaplin’s son and another man).
She was willing to meet Elvis, and she did.
Your most likely favorite position
From the information gleaned in recent books about these two Hollywood legends, there is one position that has probably been their favorite.
This would have been doggy style in two variations.
On the bed and against the back of a sofa.
The correct version of doggy style (most commonly used in sexually inhibited 1950s America) would have been for the woman to be on all fours in bed, but with her head close to or touching the sheet.
Instead of supporting his upper body with his hands, he would have rested on his forearms with his hands flat.
This position raises the woman’s buttocks for direct contact with the man, kneeling behind her. This also allows the man to caress her breasts or even her genital area while he thrusts.
The variation of this is where the man places the woman on the back of the sofa, so that her head is resting on the back cushion of the sofa, but her buttocks are firmly against the back of the sofa, with her feet on the floor.
The man enters from behind, standing up, and he can push very vigorously. This is pure sex, and since the couple can’t really see each other, they are free to fantasize while lovemaking is in progress.
As we know from history, these two unlucky individuals were on drugs at the time, perhaps stimulants (amphetamines or cocaine), and the positions described would have been ideal for such an influenced couple.
As we also know from history, this was a unique event, it seems that the sexual life of both of them took on some negative elements.
Let’s assume 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, been suitable for the evening that had ended shortly after it began.
Such doggy style variations can bring great pleasure to those who employ them, and are still classified as pure sexual positions (meaning those without accompanying tenderness). And they are still as popular today as they ever were.
