A new book about presidential sex scandals has all of the makings of a winner if turned into a Hollywood movie. ArtsCalendar.com has written that there is a long history of misbehavior in American politics which has included the nation’s highest office. Many American presidents have been influenced and have had their careers "affected by the hand of a woman, sometimes that of a wife or mother, but at other times that of a mistress." "Affairs of State: The Untold Hisotry of Presidential Love, Sex and Scandal" is a book which is about love, marriage, and affairs in the White House.
In an article today, Jan. 9, 2013, Radar Online has reported, Abe Lincoln With A Hooker? New Book Exposes Presidential Sex Scandals. The new book, "Affairs of State: The Untold History of Presidential Love, Sex and Scandal," offers plenty of entertaining stories from the Oval Office, which detail "everything from John F. Kennedy‘s insatiable libido to Abraham Lincoln‘s patronage of a prostitute." Dr. Robert Watson, the author of this book has said, “There’s a long history of these presidential peccadilloes — whatever Bill Clinton did in the White House, it’s mild.”
There has been written evidence that prior to his marriage and presidency Honest Abe Lincoln once visited a working girl, but he is said to have left before any deeds were done. John F. Kennedy was noted by Watson as being ”the worst dog, I think, probably in history,” adding that his wife Jacqueline “knew all about John’s philandering.” Watson said JFK claimed he’d suffer from headaches if he went more than two days without sex.
It is also said Kennedy, who was romantically linked to Marilyn Monroe, among other starlets, slept with as many as three different women in a typical week. Other sex tales in this book include "Lyndon Johnson‘s Lone State dalliances; Thomas Jefferson fathering a child with a slave; and the gay rumors circulating around James Buchanan."
Many people who have been entertained by the presidential sex scandals in the United States appear to have one request for Washington, DC, which is to please stop being so overly judgemental about other people's sex lives. After all as the old saying goes, "People in glass houses should not throw stones!"
