Sex is fun. And Prime Kirk is no different, despite fans' attempts to dispel that image. Look no further than "The Conscience of the King" where 34-year-old James T. Kirk beds the 19-year-old daughter of a mass murderer,
No he doesn't. He "courts" her, "kisses" her, but there is nothing to suggest that they actually "did it". Also, her name is Lenore.

or "Requiem for Methuselah" where he gets uncomfortably grabby with an android, then petty and jealous about her, leading to her death.
One example of Kirk genuinely going after the girl, but it still doesn't lead to bedding.

Of course that still doesn't stop people from believing that Kirk is most famous for sleeping with Orion slave girls on the whim. Why else would they stick that very image in Trek09? Funny story. The only episode in the original series where Kirk meets an Orion girl, he doesn't sleep with her! In fact, when she puts the moves on Kirk, he actually resists.
