It turns out that Ben was not so stuffy. Check out THIS info that you probably didn’t learn about in History class.
Is it weird to think that Ben Franklin might have been a ‘playa’?
He was a notorious flirt who loved the company of beautiful, intelligent women.
His writings talk about being governed by his sexual passions, and his ongoing struggle to tame them.
This sketch alone would be tabloid fodder today:
The rumors of numerous bastard children attributed to Franklin, and the admission that he did have one that he raised, would only add to the scandal.
Would this be running for 23 hours of the 24-hour news channels today?
Damn straight it would.
