"Sex is a bad thing because it rumples the clothes."
Now, I don't know the situation or context that Jackie Kennedy said this in, but one has to imagine she said it tongue-in-cheek-ily. First off, I have trouble imagining our beloved, dignified JBK discussing or mentioning sex in a public setting. Secondly, stories about Jackie's physical relationship with her husband suggest that Mrs. Kennedy was anything but frigid or frumpy in the bedroom activities department. (For those who may not know, JFK and Jackie often took afternoon 'naps'. His back required rest breaks, as did the stressors of his job. Jackie wasn't known to refuse or 'busy' herself otherwise...) But perhaps such a remark kept her in good standing with ladies' groups who frowned up the ever-growing sexual revolution of the 1960s. Regardless, you'll get a peek of Jackie's sexy side and so much more in O! Jackie.
