JFK-intern-tell-all.jpgA woman who interned in the White House of President John F. Kennedy claims that JFK took her virginity 50 years ago during her time at the White House, reports the New York Post.

Mimi Alford, 69, writes in new book “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath” that she had an 18-month affair with JFK while working at the White House.

The Post purchased a copy of the book in advance of its release. Among other stories, the book details Mimi’s first meeting with the President in the White House pool and then a “personal tour” of the estate that culminated in a sexual encounter in the bedroom of Jackie Kennedy. It was Mimi’s first time.

The excerpts read like stuff out of a bodice ripper – “The next thing she knew, he was standing above her, looking directly into her eyes and guiding her to the edge of the bed. ‘Slowly, he unbuttoned the top of my shirtdress and touched my breasts. Then he reached up between my legs and started to pull off my underwear. I finished unbuttoning my shirtdress and let it fall off my shoulders.'”

But Alford also details playing in the bathtub with rubber ducks, how JFK taught her to make scrambled eggs and that they would sing along together to the “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” soundtrack.

Alford cites the allure of power as her only excuse for the affair – “The fact that I was being desired by the most famous and powerful man in
America only amplified my feelings to the point where resistance was
out of the question. That’s why I didn’t say no to the president. It’s
the best answer I can give.”

And she says that the President challenged her to orally service Dave Powers, a Special Assistant to the President in the Kennedy White House, while Powers was dipping his feet in the White House pool. And Alford did. Though later in the affair when the President challenged her to similarly service his brother Ted Kennedy, she refused.

The tell-all hits bookshelves Wednesday, Feb. 8.
