Ben Franklin saved the American Revolution by seducing French women. A gay love affair between President James Buchanan and Senator William King aided the secession movement. And lesbian relationships inspired Eleanor Roosevelt to become a revolutionary crusader for equal rights. The sex lives of America's leaders have influenced social movements, government policies, elections, and even wars, yet they are so whitewashed by historians that people think Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln were made of marble, not flesh and blood. But the truth is about to come out. In One Nation Under Sex, free speech activist and notorious Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt teams up with Columbia University history professor David Eisenbach to peek behind the White House bedroom curtains and document how hidden passions have shaped public life. They unpack salacious rumors and outright scandals, showing how private affairs have driven pivotal decisions-often with horrific consequences. Along the way, they explore the origins of America's fascination with sex scandals and explain how we can put aside our political moralism and begin focusing on the real problems that threaten our nation.
