John Lennon and sex
Albert Goldman’s 'The Lives Of John Lennon' (1988) claimed that John Lennon had a gay affair with The Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, during a four-day holiday in Barcelona in April 1963. (Cached)
It also refers to a number of relationships which Lennon reportedly had with other men.
Goldman claims that Lennon visited underage boy prostitutes in Thailand.
When Epstein went into a London rehab centre, Lennon sent him flowers and the message, “You know I love you . . . I really mean that. John.”
The death of Epstein came just before the end of Lennon’s marriage to Cynthia.
Philip Norman has written 'John Lennon: The Life'.
According to Philip Norman, John Lennon wanted a gay relationship with Paul McCartney.
McCartney admits he often shared a bed with Lennon.
Philip Norman quotes Yoko as saying that people in the Apple office referred to McCartney as 'John’s princess'.
From Philip Norman we learn that John Lennon worshipped 'with a quasi-sexual intensity' the Beatles’ first bassist Stu Sutcliffe. (John Lennon: The Life by Philip Norman - The Sunday Times review ...)
Lennon wrote letters to Sutcliffe 'similar in length and tone, he claimed, to the ones he later sent Yoko'.
