A WOMAN who says she was the teenage mistress of John F. Kennedy has written a memoir describing how he both abused and confided in her during an 18-month affair which ended only with his death.
Mimi Alford says she was a 19-year-old virgin just a few days into an internship at the White House when Kennedy seduced her, thus de-virginizing her, in the JFK - Jackie Kennedy matrimonial bed, after a pool party with two close aides and other young women.
After the hymen breaking encounter, Miss Alford while taking a TAXI home, thought "I just lost my virginity".
Mimi Alford, the White House intern who has described her affair with JFK.
"I was in shock," she wrote. "He, on the other hand, was matter-of-fact, and acted as if what had just occurred was the most natural thing in the world." They kept up the affair after she left Washington to go to university, and she last slept with him three days before his fatal trip to Dallas, when he told her: "I wish you could come with me to Texas. I'll call you when I get back."
The now 69-year-old retired church administrator, who lives in New York City, uses the memoir, called Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath, to detail how she spent days and nights with the notoriously sex-addicted president. She tells how he refused to kiss her on the lips, and once told her to perform a sex act on his friend, while he watched by the pool, which she did.
At times JFK was playful and patient, depending on the affairs of state, and at other times he was in a rush and insisted on quickies including frequent oral sex. JFK also hated to sweat and was known to take frequent baths/showers and change shirts up to 7 times daily.
During their frequent encounters in the tub, the President would include a set of rubber duckies that he was fond of (that were given to him as gifts) and would name family members after them; the President was always careful not to implicate or embarrass the first lady in his many sexual encounters.
A notable sexual encounter occurred with Mrs. Alford during the Cuban missile crisis where the President, under stress and pessimistic , stated that he preferred his children to grow up as "Red" rather than end up "dead".
Once he asked her to "look after" younger brother Teddy, but she refused.
Mrs Alford claimed that despite this, theirs was a close relationship, and that Kennedy confided in her and asked her to console him following the death of his baby son, Patrick, according to the memoir obtained by the New York Post.
