Doing it for your country: U.S. presidents and sex
Highlights from 7 past presidents
George Washington was born on February 22, but every third Monday in February we celebrate his birthday with one of our favorite things: A three-day weekend.
This year we’re kicking off Presidents’ Day Bedsider style by sharing some presidential sex stories. So much power. So many scandals.
Warren Harding. It’s well known that our 29th President liked his mistresses. But it must have pissed off Mrs. Harding that two of them were her friends.
JFK. Threesomes. Movie stars. Taking baths with a 19-year-old intern. A permanent hotel room for shagging. His affairs are legendary.
Franklin Roosevelt. His wife, Eleanor, said a lot of cool things, including, “Marriages are two way streets and when they are not happy both must be willing to adjust. Both must love.” She knew he had a long-term affair with Lucy Mercer, the 22-year-old social secretary she hired in 1913.
Thomas Jefferson. Secretly fathered children with his own slave, Sally Hemings.
Grover Cleveland. During his presidential bid, it was revealed that he had a child out of wedlock who was given up for adoption. He won in spite of the scandal.
Dwight Eisenhower. Fell for his chauffeur. Supposedly wanted to divorce his wife for her.
Lyndon Johnson. They say he had a harem of women to hook up with while in office.
Don’t forget: If you commemorate Presidents’ Day by having some patriotic sex this weekend, be sure to have your birth control covered.
And thank you, President Obama, for helping to make birth control more affordable.
Have an amazing weekend,
