Gipper was no Ron Juan (Actress Piper Laurie claims she lost her virginity with Ronald Reagan)
New York Post ^ | 11/12/2011 | SUSANNAH CAHALAN

Posted on 11/14/2011 11:40:25 AM PST by SeekAndFind

He wasn’t the “great communicator” in the sack.

Actress Piper Laurie describes Ronald Reagan -- who played her dad in a movie and then bedded the 18-year-old virgin off the set -- as an insensitive “show-off” in bed in her new memoir, “Learning to Live Out Loud.”

Laurie played the teenage daughter of the future president, then 39, in the 1950 film “Louisa.”

At the time, Reagan was no longer married to actress Jane Wyman and had not yet started dating Wife No. 2, the former Nancy Davis, when he started flirting with the ingenue, insisting she call him “Ronnie.”

“I was quite flattered by his fatherly attention,” said Laurie, who was later nominated for Oscars for her roles in “The Hustler,” “Carrie” and “Children of a Lesser God.”

The Gipper made his move on the starlet by inviting her to dinner, after getting permission from her mom.

Instead of taking her out, he cooked her dinner at his home, serving hamburgers.

“It was my first love affair,” she said.

But the bedroom romp later that night was “without grace.”

“He made sure I was aware of the length of time he had been ‘ardent.’ It was 40 minutes,” she writes. “And he told me how much the condom cost.”

Then, sensing Laurie was less than enthused by the experience, he insulted her.

“There’s something wrong with you. You should have had many orgasms by now -- after all this time. You’ve got to see a doctor,” he said.

I find the fact that a vintage Webcore WIRE recorder is pictured far more interesting than the topic of the article ;-)

Had one as a kid, found out that tying the wire in a knot was not a very good splicing method ;-)

Was she known as “Piper” before or after she hooked up with Ronnie?

I guess it is not working on Cain, so they have to hit Reagan to feel better.

actually, I have seen reagan in the 1950’s on a tv show as a guest, and he did come across as a bit vapid at the time. Who knows if this is true (I see no reason to doubt it on the face of it), but I am not under the impression that Mr. Reagan at 40 was a terribly interesting person to be around.

“And he told me how much the condom cost.”

In 1272 Arab moslems invented the condom, using a goats lower intestine.

In 1873 the English refined the idea, by taking the intestine out of the goat first...

So, is Piper Laurie a Republican?

(A Democrat would probably have said something in late October 1980.
Would have called it “incest” since she was PLAYING his daughter...)

Goes to show you a man can have sex and still be a great president.

And I’m sure Nancy knows all about it.

The left is really into the ‘sex’ thing lately. All because of Mr. Cain I assume.

What’s the big deal? She didn’t say he raped her. And I doubt he was there to make her happy. He wasn’t planning on taking her as wife #2. This was a one time deal.

Love the pic of Piper and Liberty Bell. Reminds me of the great pin-up artists like Elvgren, et al.

I always liked Piper Laurie. My wife and I particularly enjoyed her performance in the Tony Curtis swashbuckler "The Prince Who Was a Thief". Her memoir sounds tacky to say the least...

Reagan was a registered Democrat back then. So it all makes sense.

This is really disgusting. True gentlemen or ladies don't publicize details of their sexual encounters.

I'm sure Reagan would not comment at all about his relationship with Piper Laurie. He also wouldn't try to ridicule her with details of their acts or conversations.

There is no way of knowing if any of this actually happened. Reagan is not around to give his version.

My guess is that it is just another attempt to diminish Reagan and to sell copies of a biography that would otherwise be uninteresting.

Hugh Laurie is English. There is no connection except the last name. Piper had one child a daughter.
