News at Eleven: The poet Kahlil Gibran once wrote

that "the most highly sexed beings upon the planet are the creators--the poets, sculptors, painters, musicians--and so it has been from the beginning".

That certainly seems to have been true of Sir John Betjeman, who said towards the end of his life that his one regret was "not enough sex" but who actually spent his later years conducting not one but two long-term extra-marital affairs.
