What is suspected to be only the second known Marilyn Monroe sex tape is set to be auctioned off for sale at the Buenos Aires Film Collecting Fair. The bidding will start, yes start, at $500,000. If the film, which is about six minutes in length and (supposedly) features Marilyn Monroe masturbating and then having sex with some guy. The film is believed to be from the late 1940’s, before Norma Jean took on the stage name of Marilyn Monroe and before she was the sex symbol that she eventually became. So how much will a Marilyn Monroe/Norma Jean sex tape end up selling for?
It’s really not clear. First off, this tape hasn’t been authenticated as being 100% legit, yet. The reported the origin of the tape was that it was shot somewhere in the US between 1946 and 1947 and then was taken, for whatever reason, to France by an American military officer. There, it sat and collected dust with a bunch of other old films. Eventually, two Spanish film collectors purchased all the films, not knowing the hidden gem that was included in the lot, and now they want to sell it. For lots and lots of money.
So will we ever know for sure if it’s an honest-to-God Marilyn Monroe sex tape? Again, it’s hard to say. Obviously, the woman on the screen looks a hell of a lot like Norma Jean, otherwise why even bother putting it up for auction. Also, the owner of the film says that jewelry that the woman is wearing in this tape is consistent with jewelry that Marilyn Monroe wore in films from around the same time that this tape was shot (late 1940s). Additionally, the owner says that the fact that there is documented FBI records showing an interest by the agency in the film is further proof that even J. Edgar Hoover (who ran the FBI the better part of the 20th Century) seemed to believe this tape was real. That claim is significant because the only other known Marilyn Monroe sex tape was actually confiscated by the Hoover and the FBI in the 1960’s as part of an FBI plot to try and discredit the Kennedys. Eventually breaking free from the FBI, who had no real good reason to confiscate it anyway, the tape was auctioned off in 2008 for $1.5 million and purchased by a New York businessman. To date, that film has not yet been released and the current owner says he never will release it, as he doesn’t want to tarnish Marilyn Monroe’s name.
The first Marilyn Monroe sex tape, the one that sold for a million and a half dollars, featured Monroe giving an unidentified guy a blowjob and was pretty graphic. This new tape, if authentic, seems to show a whole lot more. And even though it’s only six minutes in length, if enough evidence can be presented to its authenticity and if enough people buy into that evidence, this film could easily sell for $2 million or more. Also, since it’s no secret that the first Marilyn Monroe sex tape isn’t up for grabs, and probably won’t be anytime soon, it makes this new film just that much more valuable. Potentially. And this thing does end up getting released, I’m willing to bet that it will outsell both the Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson sex tapes.
