Elvis met Priscilla Beaulieu in Germany when she was just 14. When she was 15 she flew alone to America in 1962 to live with him. They married in 1967 and Priscilla says they did not have sex until after their wedding. Is that really true? If so, why not? The music icon’s widow reveals what was really going on.
The couple had been sharing a bed since she was 14 in later 1959 into 1960.
Priscilla described even in the earliest days: “Elvis would take me into his bedroom and then we would kiss long, deep, passionate kisses and his caresses would leave me weak with desire.”
He was in a relationship with Hollywood starlet Anita Wood at that time and returned to her when he was discharged from the army in 1960. However, he continued secretly seeing Priscilla and when Anita found out and ended the relationship in early 1962, Priscilla was soon flown to America and into his bed. She hadn’t yet turned 16.
Finstad wrote: “In her book and in other public forums, Priscilla, perpetuating the myth, would say that her first night of marriage in the upstairs master bedroom of the Palm Springs house was the moment when she lost her virginity – conveniently overlooking her previous sexual relationships with … Tommy Stewart, Peter von Wechmar, Jamie Lindberg, and possibly Ron Tapp.”
Elvis was certainly away in Hollywood or performing in Las Vegas for much of their relationship. It is feasible Priscilla was also having affairs.
Although one major event supports the claim to virginity.
The couple married on May 1, 1967, at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.
Extremely soon afterwards, Priscilla found out that she was pregnant. Surprisingly, it was not what she wanted at the time, worried that it could threaten the newfound intimacy and stability she had with Elvis. Lisa Marie was born nine months later on February 1, 1968.
Apparently, Priscilla had asked if she could take birth control pills, but Elvis had insisted they weren’t perfected yet. This certainly sounds like they had not been in a fully sexual relationship before that point.
Of course, Priscilla could have used various forms of birth control with other alleged lovers but it appears that with Elvis, the couple really did wait until they were married.
