Marilyn Monroe had a gay affair with a teenage girl, claims a new book written by author, Tony Jerris. The ultimate sex symbol allegedly had a lesbian lover who was a 16-year-old by the name of Jane Lawrence who ran her fan club.
The book entitled Marilyn Monroe: My Little Secret exposes the details behind the lesbian affair allegations. With so many iconic stars from the 50s and 60s, more stories emerge that a number of them had gay encounters.
Jerris wrote in the book that Monroe and Lawrence had a lot of similarities because they were from the same orphanage and share the same backgrounds. The 16-year-old struggled with her sexuality.
Lawrence told Jerris that the sexual encounter when Marilyn was 29 and they were at a party. She claimed the movie star had taken Nembutal and was drinking champagne — saying that both of them made her “happier faster.”
Apparently Marilyn and the girl began their sensual session when she kissed her with a”mischievous twinkle in her eye.”
“The next few minutes became hazy, surreal and dream-like,” Lawrence said. “My pulse leaped as Marilyn kissed my thigh again… she then leaned in and kissed me full on the lips, very softly and very slowly. I was nearly hyperventilating.
“We moved through the living room into the bedroom. Marilyn used her tongue, lavishly flicking and licking, an entirely new sensation for me. With the girls I had enjoyed sex with, there was often a shyness and hesitancy, not the hunger and confidence Marilyn displayed.”
Did all of this mean Marilyn Monroe was a lesbian because of their gay encounter? Lawrence doesn’t think so.
“She was just a free spirit,” she said. “She was a very open person.”
