David Bowie and Freddie Mercury probably both had sex with anyone who got within 20 feet of them in the late 70s early 80s.

I believe Richard Pryor's wife said it best: "It was the '70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning."

They both war. Only difference is Freddie's longest romantic relationship was with a guy and Bowie's longest romantic relationship was with a woman.

If I recall correctly, Carrie did a few of those "20 questions" with Playboy.
In one of them, they asked who her favorite sex partner was.
She claimed it was Freddie Mercury, because he was packing some serious meat.
She stated that it took her a day or two to be able to sit right.
And for that reason alone, she wanted to marry him.

Yes.


Pedophilia, or paedophilia, is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.

At 17, I feel I can safely bet that Carrie wasn't prepubescent.  Since I'm guessing you live in a place where 18 is the age of consent, where you live the social norm has determined that while physically a person has become an adult, mentally they aren't prepared to deal with the logic and emotional issues that come with being sexually active.  Other places (even within the US), have set that age lower, but just about always 16 or above.

So, while you can feel the age difference between Carrie and David/Freddie is disgusting, it's not pedophilia.

I was thinking "Affairs when she was 17 huh? I should see what she looked like back then" and went to Bing, which is where you go for the good stuff in image searching. The first tab on the left when you search her name? "Carrie Fischer Young"

You have to get up early in the morning to beat the pervs at this game. Those guys should get a life.

See, that was a sensible explanation and I thank you for taking your time to explain it from your perspective.

I've always seen 17 as an edgy-line as I had a friend who had to spend time in prison when he got his 17-year-old girlfriend at the time pregnant when he was 18, and thus, that leaves me heavily skepical.

Well, at least someone could ask their source.

Years of research for his latest biography included interviewing one of Fisher's friends, the Oscar-nominated actress Joan Hackett, before her death in 1983.

Huh. I guess they just sat on this story for 35 years. Seems plausible.

Americans have the most warped, farked up ideas about sex, To the rest of the world , it looks like you're still under the thumb of the Puritans (who got defranchised in most Western countries in the 1960's)

Seriously, how many 17 yo girls do you think are still virgins?  And remember who her parents were - you cd say she's come out of one of the most openly carnal societies in America.

It should leave you skeptical of a society and legal system that will jail someone for that. I used to have lots of sex with a 16 year old girl, and nobody ever raised an eyebrow about it.
Of course I live in Denmark and I was 15 at the time. And smart enough not to get her pregnant.

That is who Farrokh Bulsara, stage name Freddie Mercury, left the bulk of his fortune, his incredible Georgian house in Kensington and who is the only person who knows where the ashes of the former Mr. Bulsara are buried. He obviously had serious relationships with men, but the love of his life was Mary Austin.

I love David Bowie and especially his music, but there was always a whiff of "publicity stunt" about his bisexuality.

Yeah  Except Bowie wasn't Miley Cyrus and the 1970s were 50 years ago.

If David Bowie's bisexuality was a stunt, it was poorly calculated.  Gay and bi wasn't NEARLY as accepted as it is today.  People's careers were destroyed by rumors. And people got harassed a lot for insinuations.

Bowie took a risk.  He was open and honest rather than trying to hide his truth.  Over time it worked out, but it certainly wasn't a ploy to sell records.

Also, certainly didn't hurt that he was one of the sexiest beings to walk the earth.

Your friend would have been convicted of statutory rape, however, not pedophilia.

I generally am annoyed and derisive when people do the "well ackshually... ephebephilia" thing with stories about pedos, but those people tend to do it with stories about 13-year-olds, where the line is close enough not to matter.  But the strict truth is that pedophilia is a specific mental disorder characterized by an abnormal sexual attraction to children. Not legally children, but physically children -- and physically speaking, there is no difference between your average 17-year-old and your average 18-year-old.  That particular line is pretty arbitrary.

I'm doubtful about this whole thing. Not that I think it's implausible for the people involved, but it seems unlikely that the hundreds of Bowie biographers (including his wife at the time) who have mapped out practically every day of the man's life in the early seventies never got a hint of this saucy story or just decided not to share it.

And then there's the bit about living on cocaine and milk, which is something Bowie has mentioned himself in interviews, but only when talking about a few years later when he was living in L.A., and so drugged up that he recorded a great album he later had no memories of recording.
Here is just feels like the "hollywood insiders" making a living writing unauthorized biographies have inserted a known fact in a story to make it seem more authentic.

I am skeptical about your friend, as there are limits to the prosecution of statutory rape. Pretty much all states give a swing in age, even when dealing with above age of consent and below age of consent. Maybe it had to do with pregnancy, but most states recognize that a 18 year old might fark a 15 year old: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2003/rpt/​2003-R​-0376.htm

But she ostensibly told this to Joan Hackett, who shared it less than ten years later in an interview with a guy who was writing travel guides at the time. And then he kept it secret until decades later when he had changed career to writing biographies of dead celebrities.
I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm just not taking it as gospel.

The Harrison Ford thing was pretty quiet until she openly discussed it.

And Ford's life has not been examined and documented with the same level of scrutiny as Bowie's.
