I assume you meant "between \end{frame} ... \begin{frame}"?

In any case, I think this will be very difficult to do directly, due to
the reason you have already noted: org is an outliner at its heart!

Instead, you could consider using \note{}s (search list as there was a
discussion about these a while back).  You can create notes for a given
slide easily enough:

#+begin_src org
* A slide
  - one item
  - another item

#+latex: \note{%
  - something to tell the audience or
  - make sure to point out some important point
  - whatever you want to put in notes basically...
#+latex: }

* Another slide
  - an item
  - yet another
#+end_src org

and then generate documents without notes, with slides and notes and
with notes alone.  Quite powerful but may not be necessarily what you
