I read that Hillary Clinton's new book sold 200,000 copies on its first day out. In the book she writes that
she wanted "to wring Bill's neck" after he admitted to her that he had had "an inappropriate intimacy" with Monica Lewinsky.
If you didn't read the Starr Report, here are the highlights (lowlights?)
of said intimacies.
INAPPROPRIATE INTIMACIES RECOUNTED BELOW ARE FOR ADULTS ONLY
According to Ms. Lewinsky, she and the President kissed. She unbuttoned her jacket; either she unhooked her bra or he
lifted her bra up; and he touched her breasts with his hands and mouth. Ms. Lewinsky testified:
"I believe he took a phone call . . . and so we moved from the hallway into the back office . . . .
[H]e put his hand down my pants and stimulated me manually in the genital area." While the President
continued talking on the phone (Ms. Lewinsky understood that the caller was a Member of Congress or a Senator),
she performed oral sex on him. He finished his call, and, a moment later, told Ms. Lewinsky to stop.
In her recollection: "I told him that I wanted . . . to complete that. And he said . . . that he needed to
wait until he trusted me more. And then I think he made a joke . . . that he hadn't had that in a long time."
Ms. Lewinsky testified that she and the President had a sexual encounter during this visit. They kissed, and the
President touched Ms. Lewinsky's bare breasts with his hands and mouth. At some point, Ms. Currie approached the
door leading to the hallway, which was ajar, and said that the President had a telephone call. Ms. Lewinsky recalled
that the caller was a Member of Congress with a nickname. While the President was on the telephone, according to
Ms. Lewinsky, "he unzipped his pants and exposed himself," and she performed oral sex. Again, he stopped her
before he ejaculated.
According to Ms. Lewinsky, they moved to the study. "And then . . . we were kissing and he lifted my sweater and
exposed my breasts and was fondling them with his hands and with his mouth." She performed oral sex.
Once again, he stopped her before he ejaculated because, Ms. Lewinsky testified, "he didn't know me well enough
or he didn't trust me yet."
Ms. Lewinsky testified that during this bathroom encounter, she and the President kissed, and he touched her bare breasts
with his hands and his mouth. The President "was talking about performing oral sex on me," according to Ms. Lewinsky.
But she stopped him because she was menstruating and he did not. Ms. Lewinsky did perform oral sex on him.
They continued talking as they went to the hallway by the study. Then, with Ms. Lewinsky in mid-sentence, "he just started
kissing me." He lifted her top and touched her breasts with his hands and mouth. According to Ms. Lewinsky, the
President "unzipped his pants and sort of exposed himself," and she performed oral sex.
There, according to Ms. Lewinsky, they kissed. She was wearing a long dress that buttoned from the neck to the ankles.
"And he unbuttoned my dress and he unhooked my bra, and sort of took the dress off my shoulders and . . .
moved the bra . . . . [H]e was looking at me and touching me and telling me how beautiful I was."
He touched her breasts with his hands and his mouth, and touched her genitals, first through underwear
and then directly. She performed oral sex on him.
In the hallway by the study, the President and Ms. Lewinsky kissed. On this occasion, according to Ms. Lewinsky,
"he focused on me pretty exclusively," kissing her bare breasts and fondling her genitals. At one point,
the President inserted a cigar into Ms. Lewinsky's vagina, then put the cigar in his mouth and said:
"It tastes good." After they were finished, Ms. Lewinsky left the Oval Office and walked through the Rose Garden.
After this Easter Sunday conversation, the President and Ms. Lewinsky had a sexual encounter in the hallway,
according to Ms. Lewinsky. She testified that the President touched her breasts with his mouth and hands.
According to Ms. Lewinsky: "I think he unzipped [his pants] . . . because it was sort of this running
joke that I could never unbutton his pants, that I just had trouble with it." Ms. Lewinsky performed oral sex.
The President did not ejaculate in her presence.
[W]e went back over by the bathroom in the hallway, and we kissed. We were kissing and he unbuttoned my dress and fondled my breasts
with my bra on, and then took them out of my bra and was kissing them and touching them with his hands and with his mouth.
And then I think I was touching him in his genital area through his pants, and I think I unbuttoned his shirt and was kissing
his chest. And then . . . I wanted to perform oral sex on him . . . and so I did. And then . . . I think he heard something,
or he heard someone in the office. So, we moved into the bathroom.
And I continued to perform oral sex and then he pushed me away, kind of as he always did before he came,
and then I stood up and I said . . . I care about you so much; . . . I don't understand why you won't let me . . .
make you come; it's important to me; I mean, it just doesn't feel complete, it doesn't seem right.
Ms. Lewinsky testified that she and the President hugged, and "he said he didn't want to get addicted to me,
and he didn't want me to get addicted to him." They looked at each other for a moment. Then, saying
that "I don't want to disappoint you," the President consented. For the first time, she performed
oral sex through completion.
According to Ms. Lewinsky, their sexual encounter began with a sudden kiss: "[T]his was another one of those occasions when I
was babbling on about something, and he just kissed me, kind of to shut me up, I think." The President unbuttoned her
blouse and touched her breasts without removing her bra. "[H]e went to go put his hand down my pants, and then I unzipped
them because it was easier. And I didn't have any panties on. And so he manually stimulated me." According to Ms. Lewinsky,
"I wanted him to touch my genitals with his genitals," and he did so, lightly and without penetration. Then Ms. Lewinsky
performed oral sex on him, again until he ejaculated.
