London, Feb 10 (ANI): A former White House intern has revealed about her 18-month 'tender, funny, loving' affair with John F Kennedy in a new book, claiming that the ex President 'took her virginity' on his wife Jacqueline Kennedy's bed.
When the United States stood on the threshold of nuclear Armageddon during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, President Kennedy sent his wife and children away to stay at the family's summer farm in Virginia, the new book has claimed.
But he pulled his 19-year-old mistress close, summoning her from her college while he stared down the Soviet Union, the Daily Mail reported.
Later, Jackie Kennedy divulged in recently released interviews that she had pleaded her husband to keep her, Caroline and John Jr close, but instead he turned to Mimi Alford, the young press intern.
In an interview with NBC's Rock Center after the release of her explosive new memoir, ''Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,' Alford asserted that the president had instructed her to perform a sex act on his 50-year-old special assistant, Dave Powers, while he watched.
She also said that the next summer, he asked her to do the same to his baby brother, Teddy Kennedy.
But this time, being ashamed of what she did with Powers, she refused.
The retired New York church administrator, who kept her secret for half a century, disclosed that the night before the Cuban Missile Crisis ended, Kennedy sent a limo to Wheaton College, where she was studying.
It picked her up and took her to a hotel near the White House.
Apart from stories of her sex life with the president, she also opened up about the tender moments she shared with him.
''He had a collection of little yellow rubber ducks and they were in the bathtub and rubber ducks sort of became part of the game,'' she said in the interview.
''We had races with rubber ducks in the bathtub.''
Far from being disgusted by his advances, the former church worker also confessed that she found him ''unbelievably handsome''.
Extracts from her memoir have detailed how she was shocked when on her fifth day as a White House press aide, he guided her away from co-workers who were having cocktails down the hall, to his wife's bedroom where they had sex for the first time.
Aged 19 at the time, she mentioned that ''short of screaming" there was nothing she could do to get Kennedy off her.
But in an interview with NBC, Alford said that she actually meant ''overpowered in the sense that he was the president."
Her explicit claims include allegations that he once made her inhale a sex drug at a debauched party at Bing Crosby's desert ranch.
''The president asked me if I wanted to try the drug, which stimulated the heart but also purportedly enhanced sex."
''I said no, but he just went ahead and popped the capsule and held it under my nose. He didn't try it himself. This was a new sensation, and it frightened me. I panicked and ran crying from the room," she wrote in her autobiography.
Alford, who ironically went to the same Miss Porter's school as JFK's wife Jackie, described Kennedy as ''playful", the sex as ''varied and fun" and said that he could be "seductive and playful".
She said that they spent a great deal of time ''taking baths" and that if they spent the night together, she would wear his own soft-blue cotton nightshirts.
But she also revealed about the complications in the relationship, saying that they never kissed, and that she was often subjected to a ''waiting game" where she was directed to remain in her hotel until he called for her.
Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother living in New York, also mentioned in her autobiography that through their affair she never called Kennedy by his first name 'Jack' and always called him 'Mr President,' even when they were in bed together. (ANI)
