Skip to comments.Gipper was no Ron Juan (Actress Piper Laurie claims she lost her virginity with Ronald Reagan)

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
Oh...she’s selling a book? I’m shocked.
Sour grapes! Had she played her cards right she might have been “First Lady”. Kudos to RR. She was definetly do-able.
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...)
She'll stroke out. Her sensibilities will never recover, especially as I say, "Way to go, Gipper!"
As a lame drunk in “The Hustler”.
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.
Good thing for me my keyboard drawer was closed when I read that.
Yep, he just lost my vote.
She sounds like she’s nuts.
Piper Luarie Ad for The Bell Telephone Hour
LOL. Nicely played.
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.
I hope Ronnie had a good time with her “dirty pillows”.
We had one before we got the new-fangled Pentron which actually used that ultra-modern innovation: acetate-backed TAPE! :-)
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.
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.
Old Piper Laurie
Has the same hairdresser as Accuser #4 apparently.
Reagan may of been a jerk at that time. But, then again at that time he was a Democrat.
Young Piper was hot. Old Piper was a fat old hippie type.
Hey, we’ve all made mistakes. RIP Ronnie!
You just can't buy this kind of publicity.
Hugh Laurie is English. There is no connection except the last name. Piper had one child a daughter.
I heard a story from someone who knew someone who was on the set for Hellcats of the Navy. Nancy hung around the set to keep starlets away from Ron.
Well, at least she wasn’t tramping around with black basketball players. < /sarc >
He made sure I was aware of the length of time he had been ardent. It was 40 minutes,
You just can’t buy this kind of publicity.
It also says much about the “Virgin’s Progress” amongst Hollywood males.
