2. She Lost Her Virginity to Elvis
From the moment they met in in Memphis on July 6, 1972, they were nearly inseparable.
Elvis respected her virginity — and wouldn’t touch her until she was ready. He said, “‘I want to preserve for you as long as you need,’” she writes. “He actually used the word ‘preserve.’”
It happened in early September, after they had been living together in Las Vegas. “We were in our king-sized bed on a pedestal, with a mirrored ceiling above us, reflecting Elvis and me tangled in a loving entertainment of arms, legs, kissed and deeply felt intimacy,” reveals Thompson. “Let’s just say if you’re not ready then, you’re never going to be ready in your whole entire lifetime. ... I knew I was ready to make love with this man I absolutely adored with all of my heart and soul.”
