He wasnt 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.
Theres something wrong with you. You should have had many orgasms by now -- after all this time. Youve got to see a doctor, he said.

BEDTIME WITH BONZO: Piper Laurie, with Ronald Reagan in Louisa, says he boasted about his sexual skill.
Don’t most guys?
And so what? Should we say lucky her?
This is a three bag of popcorn thread.......
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 ;-)
No sexual harassment charges?
Relevant to your interests...
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.
Good for him, she was a beautiful woman.
What’s the statute of limitations? ;)
I wonder what a certain female FReeper will say of this one?
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.
I didn’t realize she was so beautiful when young. I always picture her as middle aged.
Seemed she didn’t have a problem with showing her “dirty pillows” in her younger days. LOL
