Herman uncovers the bedroom secrets and sex scandals of American presidents, and explores the surprising ways voters have reacted to their leaders' sex scandals. Does rampant adultery show a lack of character-- or the stamina needed to run the country? What is sex like with the most powerful man in the world? And when America finally elects a female president, will she, too, have sexual escapades in the Oval Office?
