"Do you like it when he's rough?"

With these words, and accompanying visuals, Barbara Walters made Elisabeth Hasselbeck crack up, viewers scratch their heads and Whoopi Goldberg's "eyes bleed."

The 82-year-old was yammering about sex this morning The View, inspired by the erotic novel series 50 Shades of Grey, in which a 20-something girl starts a relationship with an attractive, wealthy man who's into bondage and S&M.

Suffice to say, it was an awkward:

Hasselbeck, a married mother of three, sort of dodged the question by saying she's on a break right now ... but for Whoopi and others, the damage was done.
