Adam West Had Sex wtih 8 Women a Night as Batman

Holy Wilt Chamberlains, Batman! It seems like Adam West wanted to hook up with as many women as possible during his run on the show.

It was the 1960’s and there was plenty of lovin’ to go around. Sure, there were sexually transmitted diseases to worry about, but they could be cured with some penicillin shots. The only AIDS then was hearing aids. So, West and Burt Ward, who played Robin on the show, practically had a revolving conga line of women to their dressing room. Many of them wanted West to be in the Batman outfit while they did it – but it often meant “Wham! Bam! POW! Zonk! Alfred the butler will show you out…” He supposedly had eight women a night. That makes me tired even thinking about it. Burt Ward, who played Robin, revealed West’s sexual activities:

“When I entered Batman as a naive 20-year-old who had only dated a couple of girls, I met Adam West, who immediately introduced me to the wildest sexual debauchery that you can imagine. We often found that women were banging on our windows while we were bedded down with other women.”

Like I said, this was the ’60s, so there was a lot of zaniness going on. Sometimes even too much – and it led to one of the funnier moments in sex history. West and Frank Gorshin, who many remember as The Riddler on the show, went into an orgy… and managed to get thrown out. Not from a lack of performance though. Well, actually from performing TOO much. From the story:

“We walked in and it was an orgy. So I immediately went into the Batman character, and Frank went into the Riddler character, because we were getting the big giggles. It was so funny to us, what we walked into. And we were kicked out. We were expelled from the orgy.”

I heard West say that in his Batman voice, didn’t you? We all know what happened next – Batman ended, leaving the actor unsure of what to do next. After some periods of heavy drinking, he wound up embracing his stature as the first Caped Crusader. I don’t know how many other groupies still went after him, though.

While West may not have reached Chamberlain’s stated heights of bedding 10,000 women, he certainly had a sizable quantity of nookie time. I just hope that Bat Utility Belt had a lot of canisters of condoms.
