The Queen of Sex and Bosom or the Cleavage Queen as Jayne Mansfield was popularly called in the late 1950s was an alias reserved for female entertainers of her ilk who were not averse to displaying intimate parts of their anatomy just to get popularity. The blonde sex symbol was not born blonde, rather she is a natural brunette whose hair color came out of the bottle, the typical peroxide blonde of oldies.
The legendary actress played the leading role in several Hollywood movies. Most of her movies emphasized her hourglass figure, platinum-blonde hair, and attractive cleavage which the sex goddess does not hesitate to expose through revealing costumes capable of seducing any red-blooded male within her vicinity. In fact, the constant publication of her body stats by the 1950’s media made evangelist Billy Graham exclaim that “This country knows more about Jayne Mansfield’s body statistics than the Second Commandment”.
As expected, Mansfield had a fair share of dating stories when she was alive. Find out below some of the major names on her long list of lovers and acquaintances.

After the birth of their daughter – Jayne Marie Mansfield – on November 8, 1950, her husband who hoped that motherhood would discourage his wife’s acting aspirations moved with her to LA in 1954 when she refused to give up acting. While the rising star honed her acting skills at the University of Texas, her husband occupied himself with service in the US Armed forces. The couple eventually got divorced in January 1958 after almost eight years of marriage.
