Maybe so. And in the '70s, the fact that Elvis Presley was uncircumcised=
might have led more than Goldman to say he had an "ugly hillbilly
pecker." But that doesn't make it right.
How is Goldman supposed to have known this was true?
It's been almost 40 years since I read the book, but as I remember the stor=
y Goldman tells, Elvis's father got a late-in-life circumcision, to help hi=
m make the scene after his wife's death, and Elvis developed Oedipal jealou=
sy over how much better his father's penis looked. Vernon, Goldman says, ha=
d a nice clean shaft while Elvis was stuck with his "ugly hillbilly pecker.=
" It was at this point in the book that I realized that I didn't need to ta=
ke any of it seriously.
All of this sounds complete nonsense to me.
I know the practice of circumcision is commonplace over there (much
rarer here except of course with the religious groups that practice
the trreatment) but I can't understand it affects Vernon Presley
"making the scene" as Goldman quaintly puts it.
I've been to the USA many times and I know friends here who have too
and nobody AFAIK has experienced any "problems" of that nature with
women whilst in the U.S
I wish Bob hadn't brought this up. However:
American men (maybe all men, but I'm limiting this to my own experience)
all seem to have the same delusion that women care what their (the
men's) genitals *look* like. Thus the endless string of news stories
about men "sexting" unwanted photos of their equipment to women, or
worse, to underage girls.
Almost 50 years ago a guy I had just met *mailed* me some *Polaroids* of
his genitalia. It had the exact opposite effect of what he thought it
would. I was no fragile flower back then, but it seemed utterly bizarre
to me, as if someone had introduced us and instead of extending his hand
he had unzipped his fly.
No one wants to see it. Just keep it clean.
