Is it really possible to have had as much sex as the Kennedys had?
Well, anyway, thank God for it. The Kennedy sex saga is really the story that keeps on giving.
Every politician who has had sex in office since the Kennedys were having sex in office is a pathetic also-ran. All of them fooled around in a sniveling, shame-faced, emasculated fashion compared to the Kennedys’ gusto, brazenness, and absolute disregard for conventions of all sizes and stripes — including, as the New York Post has revealed once again, Bobby Kennedy’s affair with his brother’s widow.
According to the Post, which got hold of a copy of a new book by C. David Heyman with all the delicto details, Bobby and Jackie were like two high school kids who, in front of the entire Camelot court, couldn’t keep their hands off of each other.

Of course, the New York Post believes that almost everybody who is anybody is wildly sexy. If you write a book — the Post itself isn’t really allowed to make up this stuff, but they can reprint it if someone else makes it up — claiming sex took place outside of marriage with at least one famous person, that’s a major Post exclusive. (Although, strangely, the Post was silent on the subject of my book, which had quite a bit of information on the extramarital sex life of its proprietor, Rupert Murdoch).
As for C. David Heyman, who he?
He is the author of Poor Little Rich Girl: The Life and Legend of Barbara Hutton; Liz: An Intimate Biography of Elizabeth Taylor; A Woman Named Jackie: An Intimate Biography of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis; and RFK: A Candid Biography of Robert F. Kennedy (how candid can a biography be when your subject expired many decades before it was written?), in which he first suggested the Bobby-Jackie affair, which nobody took very seriously, and which he is now suggesting, with the Post’s help, is a fabulous new scoop. The Post is always happy to revive a s-x story.
