When Bristol Palin appeared on “The View” Thursday to discuss her memoir, Barbara Walters opened the interview with a softball question. Just kidding. She asked Palin about her sex life.

After bringing up Palin’s account of her having her virginity “stolen” by Levi “The Gnat” Johnston in “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,” she asked, “It must have been okay, because you kept on having sex with him, yeah?”

Cue audience laughter, both nervous and hearty.

Palin replied, “We did it that one night and I just figured it's okay to do it again because I'd already broken my moral code.”
