With Valentine’s Day tomorrow and Presidents Day on Monday, Nerve ranks America’s chief executives, from Washington to Obama, on sex appeal. Richard Nixon—“Certainly the least sexy person connected in any way to Deep Throat”—is 43rd and last; here are the top five:

  • Theodore Roosevelt: Handsome, fit, outdoors, pro-environment, a war hero: “So sexy that if he slept with your girlfriend, you'd be flattered.”

  • John F. Kennedy: “For a long time, the Kennedys topped the unspoken list of Celebrities America Would Like to Bang. … In terms of simple sex appeal, JFK can really only be compared to himself.”
  • Barack Obama: “Smart, funny, and have you seen him with his shirt off?”
  • Thomas Jefferson: “Tall, gentlemanly, and he wrote the Declaration of Independence.”
  • Franklin Pierce: “Not much to say about this obscure president, except that he’s gorgeous. He's like Johnny Depp, but without as much to show for himself.”
