This is a picture of Marilyn and Jane Lawrence. She was introduced to Marilyn where she was a 12. Her adoptive father worked at RKO. They had an instant connection because they were in the same orphanage as children.
There's a new book out "Marilyn My Little Secret Monroe" that details their lesbian affair. One night at Marilyn's - after some champagne (and Nembutal for Marilyn) - Marilyn began kissing the inside of then 16 year old Jane's thigh. One thing led to another and they had passionate sex. This experience confirmed for Jane that she was gay.
Can you imagine your first real lesbian sex affair being with Marilyn Monroe...wow.
