Apparently Britney, Paris, Lindsay, the prudish chick from Sex and the City, Kim Kardashian and the Pam Anderson weren’t the first celebrity sex-tapers. Cultural icon Marilyn Monroe beat them to it. The best part about this story, which is being reported everywhere, is the supposed decency of the perv who bought it.
A 15-minute film of Marilyn Monroe engaging in oral sex with an unidentified man will be kept from public view by a New York businessman who has bought it for $1.5 million, the broker of the deal said on Monday.
Memorabilia collector Keya Morgan said he recently arranged the sale of the silent, black-and-white film from the son of a dead FBI informant who possessed it to a wealthy Manhattan businessman who wants to protect Monroe’s privacy.
“The gentleman who bought it said out respect for Marilyn he’s not going to make a joke of it and put it on the Internet and try to exploit her,” said memorabilia collector Keya Morgan. “That’s not his intention and I would never get my name involved if that were to happen.”
Monroe is clothed and the man’s head remains out of the frame for the entire 15 minutes of the film, said Morgan, who watched it.
So yeah, the public won’t be seeing it, but you can be damn sure the guy who bought it is going to watch it over and over again. According to the NY Post:
The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950s. When it came to light in the mid-’60s, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had his agents spend two weeks futilely trying to prove that Monroe’s sex partner was either John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy, according to declassified agency documents and interviews, Morgan said.
The silent black-and-white flick shows Monroe on her knees in front of a man whose face is just out of the shot.
He never moves into the shot, indicating that he knew the camera was there, but Monroe never looks at the lens, said Morgan, who saw the footage.
So who’s the guy, Joe DiMaggio? Guess not, cause Joltin’ Joe tried to buy the tape for a measly $25 G’s back in the day. But the final note on this story belongs to The Superficial, who goes “All I have to say is, what the shit? People gave blowjobs in the ’50s??! Annnd I’m impotent. Good game, penis.”
