New York, Sep 19: A documentary about the life of Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz or Fidel Castro reveals how the controversial Cuban revolutionary leader managed to rule the country for more than four decades. The secret is, apparently, he having slept with more than 35,000 women! "He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades - one for lunch and one for supper," The New York Post quoted an ex-Castro official named 'Ramon' as telling filmmaker Ian Halperin. "Sometimes he even ordered one for breakfast," the official said.
"I don't think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as President," the official added. Fidel Castro led Cuba from December 1959 until his resignation in February 2008. He came to power as a result of the Cuban revolution that overthrew the dictator Fulgencio Batista, and shortly thereafter became Prime Minister of Cuba.
Although the US has tried hard to get rid of him, Castro outlasted no fewer than nine American Presidents since he took power.
