Lester: 'Jackson Found Sex Difficult'

MICHAEL JACKSON's longterm friend MARK LESTER has opened up about his decision to donate his sperm to the superstar - insisting the singer confided in him about his "difficult" sex life.
Lester claims he could be the biological father of Jackson's 11-year-old daughter Paris, after he agreed to give a sample to the late superstar in 1996.
The former child star has revealed Jackson, who married his kids' mother Debbie Rowe in 1996, spoke to him at length over the phone as they discussed his request.
Lester claims the singer wanted his pal to donate sperm, because he was "nervous" about sex and found it "difficult".
He tells U.S. TV show Today, "We had conversations on the telephone and Michael was very shy when it came to women and he confided in me that he found it very difficult to actually do the sexual act. He knew I had three, at the time, lovely girls (daughters), so I jokingly said, 'Michael if you don't want to do it, why don't I do it for you.'
"(I don't know) whether he just wanted to increase the chances of the artificial insemination, but he just said he was very, very nervous and said he wasn't up to going through with the act."
Lester also used the opportunity to hit back at his ex-wife, Jane, who recently accused the him of exaggerating his friendship with Jackson and insisting he couldn't have fathered Paris.
He adds, "My wife and I were having a lot of issues, although we were living together, we were living separate lives. Whatever I did - she would do the opposite, she was a difficult lady. She didn't like the Michael thing, she didn't like the idea of me being with Michael, the idea of us having fun together seemed to be alien to her. It was very sad. So this (sperm donation) was completely confidential. Nobody knew. I think it's probably because she wasn't informed and she felt left out of it in some way."

Michael is adorable!!'s picture

Michael is ador...

Michael thought Lester was a true friend!But to betray him like this to get a drop of fame.I think Michael just didn't wanna go the wrong way with woman and was shy and sweet toward them and didn't wanna be a thug coming up on her and saying"Ay baby!Imma take u home tanite okay?" or be a plain jerk.Michael had sex only a few times and wasn't too good at it and didn't see it too clear,I think Paris is his daughter.Blanket is definitely his following Prince.I think he is rather good at sex judging he did it with 3 different women.I think one was Shana,Debbie,Lisa-Marie.He was very sexy but didn't use it as a woman act and didn't wanna be like his father and be a scrub.He definitely isn't one!!!

Well, doesn't this make things a little clearer. Let's assume that Michael was taking female hormones to supress the "male" voice change. That would atone for Michael's inability (along with his shyness) to perform sexually. Hmmm, interesting theory.In order for one to perform sexually, there must be a mutual trust and in Michael's case moreso. He needed to trust the other person and Michael trusted noone. Call me perverted or a fan. It doesn't matter, I'd have loved to have taught Michael about sex, love making. Yes. it certainly would have been a long road, but imagine making love with MICHAEL JACKSON. OMG!!! In reality, Michael's "sexuality" played out on stage. Numerous artists suggest that performing is "better than sex". Therefore, Michael didn't need the physical sexuality. He already was fulfilled in making and performing his music.

Well, now doesn't this make total sense. Rumor has it (Yes, I'm fed up with the rumors too, but here goes) that Michael Jackson was taking female steroids in attempt to suppress his voice from becoming "male".That would also account for an inability to perform sexually. Along with that disability, Michael couldn't trust people. Michael would have had to have trusted the sex partner in order to perform.I would have loved to have taught Michael Jackson how to make love. Could you imagine teaching and making love to MICHAEL JACKSON. I'd even do it in havinging a significant other. Yes, it would have taken maybe months or years to gain his trust. However, if a sexual experience was what he truly wanted, I would have given it all.Many performers that I have spoken to say that performing live "is better than sex". I would agree with that statement. I believe Michael Jackson's acts contained sexual enuendos and he was perfectly happy being asexual. I LOVE MICHAEL AND OMG, I WOULD HAVE MADE HIM ONE HAPPY MAN SEXUALLY.

It is possible for a man like MJ to find it difficult to have sex with women, I mean every woman. He was very particular about woman in this matter, not like some other men who can make love with all woman regardless of their behavior and attitude. He did not like to take advantage of people especially the women. I think Mark Lester is very "easy" on women, thus he misunderstood him. Mark Lester also has trouble with his ex-wife before,.Is it because he is too easy on women? I know that men can get easily aroused with women, but some of them have self-discipline or religious values that guide them to avoid extra-marital sex. Some other religions also forbid this.It is typical for orthodox jews or muslims never have sex until they are married, regardless of their ages. I believe MJ could control his sexual desire if he avoid alcoholic beverage that will trigger sex drive

MJ did have issues but he was ok in his older years. So I found that untrue for his adults years that MJ had to be really in love to be with a women and he did that as well. Like most guys he didn't want to hurt their feelings so his heart was so misunderstood by so many people.
