Just to clarify, “that time” is not one raucous night (probably— maybe), but rather Peter O’Toole’s entire life. A new biography has been released, appropriately titled Peter O’Toole: Hellraiser, Sexual Outlaw, Irish Rebel, which claims that in addition to his acting, O’Toole “starred in week-long binges and sex orgies of near-biblical proportions.” After swimming through the warm sexy GIF party that was the comments section of last week’s Pajiba (Dead) 10, I figured this would be relevant to all of our interests. Because anyone that has ever seen this man:
Could only view the oddly specifically tallied 1,033 notches on O’Toole’s bedpost as a low count.
Like, ridiculously low.
Among his specific exploits were the act of losing his virginity at 13 to a stripper named Bubble LaRue, an 8-year affair with Princess Margaret, and a (successful) $150 bet to sleep with three of the biggest stars at the time: Jayne Mansfield, Anita Ekberg and Diana Dors. Also among the 1,033 to whom Peter slipped his O’Toole was Audrey Hepburn. If you need a little bunktime visual aide for that pairing, I can help with that.
All of this is to absolutely no end other than to remind you that Peter O’Toole was an excessively attractive man, whose name is made up of TWO genital euphemisms, with whom you probably could have made a double-backed beast if only you’d been able to get in a room with him at any point in his life.
