‘Elvis was wonderful in bed, but I had to teach him’ – Cybill Shepherd
The stunning actress celebrates her 73rd birthday tomorrow and is still as beautiful and vivacious as she was when she met Elvis fifty years ago. Cybill Shepherd had become an instant sensation after her breakout roles in 1971’s The Last Picture Show and then The Heartbreak Kid the following year. When the King found out that she was visiting Memphis, he requested a date, but the young actress was only 22, but she was already strong-willed and immediately made her own demand in exchange for her.
Shepherd said: “He asked me out through a mutual guy we knew and I said, ‘No, he said he’d call me himself!’ So my best friend, Jane, picked up the phone and was like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s Elvis!’
“We agreed to meet at a big theater that he would rent out until midnight. We had been waiting for him forever. When he finally got there, everyone in line to my right stood up. In Memphis, he had some kind of Memphis mob.” “
The actress admitted: “At the time I thought he was too old for me, the Beatles were my music, but there was this chemistry between us… He smelled soapy and sweet, like sugar and sweat. I felt so sorry for him.”
Shepherd also revealed, “He liked girls to wear white briefs, you know what I mean,” which she refused to do.
The actress refers to the King’s notorious fascination with the innocence of younger girls. Priscilla, after all, was 14 when they met.
Elvis also hated sleeping alone, so the company was just as important as the physical acts. He had shared a bed with his mother Gladys in his teens and his death on August 14, 1958 while he was doing his military service hung over him for the rest of his life. He was 23 years old at the time and 14 years later he had changed little.
Memphis mob member Lamar Fike confirmed: “His sexual appetite was very, very strong. The touch, the feel, the pats and everything else meant more to Elvis than the act itself. I guess Elvis was the king of foreplay”.
Asked by American host Andy Cohen if the sex with Elvis had been any good, Shepherd replied: “Oh yes! Wonderful… Loving and caring.”
However, in another interview, the actress spilled the beans about what she had taught the King in bed.
She said: “We started dating and he’s a really wonderful, sexy, amazing guy.” And then she referred to a chapter in her autobiography, Cybill Disobedience, about Elvis that was titled “White Boys Don’t Eat…”.
The star was apparently reluctant to perform oral sex on him, adding: “I had to teach him how to do it. There are worse things than teaching a man!”
Unfortunately, Elvis’s prescription drug habit ended the relationship quickly.
Shepherd said: “I really liked him. I thought he was very warm. And one of the most beautiful men I had ever seen. As I spent more time with him, I realized that he had a drug dependency, and I’ve never been interested in drugs at all.”
The actress has described that the King would sometimes enter the bedroom and immediately pass out or leave drugs and emerald and diamond jewelry for her on the nightstand.
She told Cohen in 2019: “He said Here are your drugs. I said, ‘Where are yours?’ He said, ‘I already took them.’ So I flushed them down the toilet and left the jewelry there. I wish I had taken it now… I learned very early on not to let men give you anything to drink or pills of any kind.”
Their short-lived relationship was over, but Shepherd has never forgotten their time together: “Elvis has haunted me in the sense that when I met him, he was very sweet but also very drug addict… Maybe I could have helped him? “
