Priscilla Presley Once Claimed She Wore Disguises and Left Graceland at All Hours of the Night to Do Schoolgirl Roleplay for Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu met in Germany in 1959, when he was stationed overseas during his service to the U.S. Army. She was just 14 years old, while he was 24.
Their long-distance romance blossomed over the following years through phone calls, letters, photos, and visits. Ultimately, Priscilla – who married Elvis in 1967 and became Priscilla Presley – moved to Graceland during her senior year of high school.
In her 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me, Priscilla looked back at some of the antics she and Elvis allegedly got up to while she lived at Graceland. She even remembered sneaking in and out of Elvis’s Memphis estate in order to develop roleplay photos for him.
Elvis wanted to wait until marriage to have sex with Priscilla
After Priscilla moved to Memphis, she was eager to consummate her love with Elvis. But, as she wrote in Elvis and Me, he wanted to hold off and stick to foreplay until they made a longer commitment.
One night, Elvis returned to Graceland at long last from filming a movie. As their passions rose, Priscilla wrote, she “felt sure the night would end with Elvis finally making love to [her].”
“I wanted him,” she remembered. “I became bolder, reaching out to him, totally open and honest in my need.”
But Elvis, as usual, wanted to wait. He reminded Priscilla that sex was “sacred” to him. He asked her to let him decide when they would have sex. According to her, Priscilla and Elvis ultimately held off until their wedding night and honeymoon in 1967.
Priscilla claimed she and Elvis took Polaroids together in which they acted out fantasies
Although they didn’t have sex for many years, Elvis and Priscilla found other ways to express their passion for each other. In the “era of the Polaroid,” Priscilla wrote in Elvis and Me, that sometimes took the form of roleplay photos and even videotapes.
“He was the director and I his star acting out fantasies,” Priscilla wrote. “We dressed up and undressed, played and wrestled, told stories…and invented scenes.”
Some of those scenes, Priscilla revealed, involved her “dressing up in [her] school uniform and playing at being a sweet, innocent schoolgirl.” Other fantasies she acted out for her older boyfriend included “a teacher seducing her student” and “a secretary coming home from work and relaxing in the privacy of her own bedroom.”
She sneaked out to the drugstore to hide their activities from others
In order to realize their elaborate Polaroid fantasy scenes, Priscilla revealed in her memoir that she headed to the local drugstore near Graceland “almost every night” to buy film.
While scooping up 12 packs of film at a time, Priscilla said she often disguised herself in dark glasses. She also made excuses about her reasons for making such frequent purchases so she wouldn’t tip the cashiers off and get tongues wagging about her exploits.
Priscilla was also worried that Elvis’s employees at Graceland would figure out what she was doing. She was afraid that his security team and other staff members would start rumors behind her back when they saw her heading in and out constantly “at odd hours of the night.” Meanwhile, Elvis simply laughed it off, joking that Memphis needed a little more gossip to keep things exciting.
As for her own feelings about this roleplay, Priscilla remembered, she was simply eager to please Elvis in every way – including in the bedroom. She felt that the sexual fantasies brought them closer together, especially because “ordinary thrills” often weren’t enough to satisfy the King of Rock and Roll. Priscilla added that she never felt that Elvis’s “ideas or playfulness” were “perverted or in any way harmful.”
