In today’s society, sexual orientation is as open as a book, but in the days of Marlon Brando and James Dean the mere thought on any kind of exposure was death. Death, sometimes not physical, but death in society. Imagine living in constant fear that someone would let it slip that you liked people of your own sex. My God!
As sad as that sounds there still seems to be people who wish to dig up the past and bring light to lifestyles of the historic. A book came out Wednesday suggesting that two iconic actors of our day were in a “secret sadomasochistic relationship.” Marlon Brando and James Dean.
James Dean: Tomorrow Never Comes scatters light on what must of been an extremely complex relationship, according to the Daily Mail.
Dean who died at the age of 24, would apparently met Brando for master/servant sex sessions. The book reveals in very detailed acts requested by a “puppy loved” Dean.
Marlon apparently didn’t see eye to eye with the young Dean’s feelings. The book relates how Brando would play “a cat and mouse game” with Dean, making James watch as Brando committed sex acts with strangers. What is sad….James would wait outside Brando’s house praying for an offer to join Marlon inside.
Moreover, it is highly rumored that Marlon did not met James as mention in his memoir Songs My Mother Taught Me. Some are saying that the initial meeting took place in 1949 when James was a student.
