Let’s Talk About Sex

Some of the quotes from Marilyn Monroe in this remarkable video include:

“I’d rather be a sex symbol than a symbol of something else”

“We are all born sexual creatures”

“It’s a pity that so many people crush this.”

“Sexuality is only attractive when it is natural”

“A sex symbol becomes a thing and you just hate to be a thing.”

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamourish and sexual. But it is a burden.”

It’s so revealing to hear her say these remarkable things and the video is cut with a haunting jazz soundtrack that weighs on us like these thoughts must have weighed on her.
