“There is hardly anyone whose sexual life, if it were broadcast, would not fill the world at large with surprise and horror.”

So said the English writer William Somerset Maugham, as quoted by the Washington Post's Alexandra Petri, who has a list of "Things Americans Would Rather Think About Than Newt Gingrich’s Open Marriage."

(However, as long as we are thinking about it, my understanding is that he never had an open marriage. According to his second wife, he asked her for an open marriage, she rejected it, and he cheated on her anyway.)
