Adam West and his controversial sex life
Fame can do anything to a good and naïve human. Well, Adam was not naïve, but he surely was not a fame-obsessed human until he played the role of Bruce Wayne. He allegedly lived wildlife that was filled with sex, orgy, and a lot of girls. He slept with eight women and was obsessed with an orgy. It was during his sixties that his personality became more enhanced, and women just could not keep themselves in control and gave him a lot of attention. His black and grey costume drove ladies crazy, and he got a lot of female attention. Albeit, Adam made sure that he makes the most of the attention he is getting from females. He and his co-star Burt Ward (Robin in batman) said that they used to have fun with women in between the scenes.
Adam became regulars at orgies. The limit was crossed when once Adam and Frank Gorshin were banned from the orgy because they use to mimic their characters in the middle of the orgy. West said that it was funny to them, and they were just got kicked out and were expelled from the orgy. West reportedly dated actress and sisters Natalie and Lana Wood.
