Biographer Donald Spoto — who wrote the 1993 book Marilyn Monroe: The Biography — alleges the most likely time that Marilyn and JFK could have had a sexual encounter was at a party at Crosby’s home in March 1962.

Marilyn’s masseur and close friend Ralph Roberts told Spoto that “this night in March was the only time of her ‘affair’ with JFK. A great many people thought, after that weekend, that there was more to it. But Marilyn gave me the impression that it was not a major event for either of them: it happened once, that weekend, and that was that.”
