Jackie confided how her brother-in-law Bobby Kennedy had told her the FBI had recorded King trying to arrange a sex party on the night before the March on Washington in August 1963.

That King was a sex addict — though probably no worse than Mrs Kennedy’s husband, JFK — has long been a source of embarrassment in an America that effectively declared him a saint.

It didn’t help that when he was out on the road with his fellow preachers in the early civil rights movement, he was among like minds. Commentators say these pastors’ sexual charisma was a fundamental part of their appeal to congregations.

Sleeping with female members was the norm rather than the exception and King himself admitted that he didn’t know a single black preacher who was chaste.


Breaking News: JFK, RFK, MLK are all DEAD. There's no way to give them a good talking-to now.

On a personal note -- I'm always surprised how many people get their kicks talking about other people's sex experiences.
