‘Jon Dosa of Palm Springs, former TV talk show producer, will forever remember what Marilyn Monroe taught him about sex. Well, who wouldn’t?
Monroe was 35. Dosa was 19 when he snuck onto the set at Harrah’s in Reno, Nev. “The Misfits” was shooting.
The most beautiful creature he had ever seen was on a slant board awaiting her next scene, unblinking and staring straight ahead.
Nervously, young Dosa edged toward Monroe. “Standing within inches of her luminescent face,” Dosa said, “her lovely, vacant, blue-green eyes made contact with my soul.”
He told the blonde goddess the usual pronouncements about enjoying her work. Then trying for more sophisticated and intimate conversation, he said in a chummy voice, “You know, I think Jayne Mansfield depends too much on sex.”
Monroe looked at him and said, “Well, don’t discount it.”
So that was Marilyn Monroe’s advice about sex. Don’t discount it. And Dosa never has.’
