Hotel Masseur Who Claims He Slept With John Travolta Says "he likes sex with men...and he's experienced at it"
John Travolta was really good at having gay sex, according to a former hotel masseur who claims he had sex with the star back in the 1990s.Luis Gonzalez's work as a massage therapist at the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel brought him into contact with Travolta. The pair met the star in the 1988, but there wasn't any funny business between them until 1997, according to the National Enquirer (via the New York Post).
Gonzalez says (or brags, really) that he slept with Travolta after giving him a massage in the actor's suite. He told the Enquirer: "He's a great kisser and we wound up having sex. We got into the bed that was right there next to the massage table and had a really good time." He added (wistfully, we imagine): "I can still remember it like it happened yesterday."
He seemed impressed at how experienced Travolta was at the time: “Travolta may not identify himself as a gay man, but it doesn’t dismiss the fact that he likes sex with men...and he’s experienced at it."
The romp ended up being a one-night stand he said: "I was hoping to see him again after that, but I never did."
Ever since one masseur stepped forward and said he was harassed and assaulted, not one but two other masseurs (and one other cruise line worker) have stepped forward to say that Travolta tried to come onto them, too. Travolta has denied the allegations through his attorney Marty Singer. Gonzalez's story is the first masseur to come forward and say his alleged advances were much-appreciated.
