New book uncovers president’s sex lives, including JFK’s romps in Jackie’s bed


Although they might have held the highest office in America, a shocking new expose obtained by DailyMail.com reveals a long history of presidents and the countless affairs they have dabbled in. 

New book Sex with Presidents: The Ins and Outs of Love and Lust in the White House by author Eleanor Herman vows to uncover ‘the bedroom secrets’ of the powerful elected officials.  

The book covers Thomas Jefferson having six children with his slave Sally Hemmings, who was the half-sister of his wife, as well as Warren G. Harding exchanging lusty letters with his wife’s best friend.

The book details John F. Kennedy’s infamous romps in the White House pool and in Jackie’s bed, as well as his rumored affair with Marilyn Monroe. 

It covers seemingly prim Woodrow Wilson’s ‘raging libido’ whose mistress was almost paid $500,000 to publish his love letters to her. 

And the book also touches on modern presidents, including Bill Clinton who liked sex on his desk and his infamous tryst with Monica Lewinsky, as well as Donald Trump who bragged about grabbing women by the p***y.

Herman writes that ‘many world leaders are narcissistic risk takers with feelings of invincibility – and focus obsessively on their personal image, lose contact with reality, and see themselves as omnipotent messiahs.’

President Thomas Jefferson was exposed for having his own scandalous amour when he hoped to find ‘a careful English woman’ who would look after his nine year old daughter, Polly.

With the English woman unavailable, he chose fourteen-year old Sally Hemings, the half-sister of his deceased wife, Martha.

Sally’s enslaved mother had had six children with Martha’s father and the revelation prompted Jefferson’s family to craft a new family history – leaving out the black lineage.

Sally became his concubine in Paris while he was negotiating treaties and returned to Virginia with him where she bore him six children.

They did not escape vicious racism and she was called the Black Whore of Babylon and African Venus.

Jefferson promised Sally he would free their children when they turned 21 but he didn’t, as the author suggests it was out of fear he would lose them.

When he died his slaves were sent to the auction block to be bought by new cruel masters.

Grover Cleveland was the first president to have been accused of rape and he never denied it.

One evening in December 1873, while a lawyer and completing his term as county sheriff, he encountered Maria Halpin, a stunning woman he had fruitlessly been courting for months but she wasn’t interested.

He was built like a bull, six feet tall with a small hooked nose and a walrus mustache.

Living a bachelor life in a hotel, dining in fine restaurants, drinking with pals, playing cards and smoking cigars, he was feeling invincible.

He urged her to accept his dinner invitation that night and then walked her home and insisted on coming in.

‘By use of force and violence and without consent’, he penetrated her.

He threatened her with ruin if she reported it to the authorities.

It was generally believed at the time that women could prevent rape by keeping their legs closed and if all else failed, ‘the self-welding mechanism on their vaginas would kick into action’, writes Herman.

Maria’s problems got worse when she learned she was pregnant.

She asked Cleveland for money and demanded he marry her.

It escalated into horror when she began drinking, placed her baby in an orphanage and was committed to a lunatic asylum.

As he climbed his way up the ladder to run for president, Cleveland never dismissed the accusation of rape.

‘It is important to remember that only men could vote in the 1884 election’, writes the author and ‘given Cleveland’s slim majority, if women had voted, he would not have been elected’.

Woodrow Wilson, elected in 1912, might have looked like ‘a rare bookworm’ or a prim Sunday school teacher but’ underneath his bow tie and button-down shirt surged a raging libido’.

He loved whimsy and laughter, dancing wildling around the house with his daughters and witty repartee in the company of women.

When Ellen died of kidney disease in 1914, he had already found his new love, Edith Bolling Galt (pictured), five foot nine with Rubenesque curves who was at the White House having tea with Wilson¿s cousin. She became his ¿perfect playmate¿ and he signed his letters ¿Tiger¿

His wife, Ellen, a sober and grave person, was not the lighthearted company he desperately needed. So she offered her friends to keep company with him and provide what she was lacking.

She wasn’t expecting these women would become his lovers and tried to make up for her absence by writing love letters to him when he was out of town.

When Ellen died of kidney disease in 1914, the woman he had been having an affair with for seven years expected she would be the next Mrs. Wilson but he had already found his new love, Edith Bolling Galt, five foot nine with Rubenesque curves who was at the White House having tea with Wilson’s cousin.

She became his ‘perfect playmate’ and he signed his letters ‘Tiger’.

Before they were able to wed, a former lover, Mary Peck, who hoped she’d be the next Mrs. Wilson, had a pack of love letters from the President – confessions of love while married to Ellen that no president would want leaked.

She wasn’t willing to sell them for $500,000 to a Republican operative and it’s questionable that a major newspaper would have published them during the struggles of World War I when the press insulated presidents from sex scandals.

The 29th president, Warren G. Harding, who served from 1921 until his death in 1923, ‘exuded pheromones of wild sexuality that turned women into howling cats in heat’ even when he aged.

Women stalked him, sent him love letters offering him sex and just couldn’t get enough.

When his wife, Florence was on her way to the Oval Office to catch him red-handed in the act, she was blocked by his Secret Service agent who had just smuggled a blonde into the office.

But the biggest threat was her best friend, Carrie Phillips (left) who began a torrid affair with the President.

When away from her, he wrote his lover passionate letters fifty pages long. They met in hotel rooms and each other's homes when spouses were out

‘It was really rather a close call. Stumbling in closets among galoshes, she pounding on the door, the girlie with panties over her head’.

‘My God, we’ve got a President who doesn’t know beds were invented’, the President’s daughter Alice recounted.

Florence, used to these infidelities, knew that Harding couldn’t help himself.

But the biggest threat was her best friend, Carrie Phillips who began a torrid affair with the President.

When away from her, he wrote his lover passionate letters fifty pages long.

They met in hotel rooms and each other’s homes when spouses were out.

One morning the cook was coming into the kitchen and caught Warren with his trousers down around his ankles and Mrs. Phillips ‘spread out on the kitchen table’.

When they were apart with an ocean between them, he put on his bathrobe that had her scent on it and masturbated in front of a roaring fire in his study.

But she wasn’t the only one. He started an affair with his new secretary, Grace Miller Cross, a sadomasochistic who cut him and made him crawl to her naked and begging for forgiveness.

There were more lovers in Washington and nights at rowdy bordellos near the White House.

‘He could no more resist a pretty girl or woman than he could resist food when hungry’.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president who served as president from 1933-1945, had steamy love affairs, disheartening his wife Eleanor, his match intellectually but at 5’11’ considered grotesquely tall at the time with protruding teeth and a receding chin.

Eisenhower fell deeply in love with his driver and aide, Kay Summersby, but ‘he couldn’t command his penis to rise to the occasion.

‘After all, he was a chain-smoking, whiskey-belting, fifty three year old bundle of stress’.

When he didn’t need a driver, staying together was doomed.

John Kennedy’s pathological need for sex could be satisfied with any female – prostitutes, society matrons, schoolgirls, babysitters, debutantes, employees, actresses, stripped and strangers’ – two women at once, two women and another man, including his own brothers.

It could take place in closets, cars, brothels, anywhere including Jackie’s own bed.

Jackie had an affair with actor William Holden ‘primarily driven by Jackie’s desire to see revenge on Jack’ – but it was no use.

His sexual appetite was unrestrained.

Women confessed he cast a spell on them and being with the President was like taking a potent self-esteem drug.

Marilyn Monroe revealed that his sexual performance was horrid and she didn’t know how women tolerated one minute on, a minute off.

Jackie responded by wild spending sprees on designer clothing antiques that sent him into a rage.

President Lyndon Johnson, who was nicknamed ‘Bulls**t Johnson’ in college, had young men follow him from Texas and worked for him for seven days, if needed.

‘He even made them take dictation while he sat on the toilet having a bowel movement – an unfortunate habit he continued through his life’.

He also pissed in the parking lot of the House Office Building and waved around his penis asking colleagues in the men’s bathrooms if they had ever seen anything as big at 8.5 inches.

He boasted he had more women than Kennedy.

Lady Bird would find bras and panties scattered around the room and had not reckoned with his rampant infidelity when she married him.

Bill Clinton wasn’t well endowed according to Gennifer Flowers but his stamina amazed her.

‘I thought my head would explode with the pleasure,’ Flowers confessed.

Scandal fatigue exhausted most Americans when the Starr Report came out and the impeachment over his infamous Oval Office tryst with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Trump emerged onto the political scene as ‘the world’s Barnum & Bailey ringmaster, whose blustering hyperbole praised the greatest, most spectacular, most amazing show on earth with himself as the only act’.

He is accused of having an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels as well as former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal. 

‘The Trump of decades ago – the funny, irreverent, boisterous showman – has taken on an angrier tone since he became president,’ writes Herman, who states he has developed the ‘hubris syndrome using power for self-glorification, refusal to listen to advice of others, admit mistakes and loss of contact with reality’.
