Sex and power (“House of Cards”)

I’ve been on a bit of a “House of Cards” jag.

In the episode I just watched, Kevin Spacey, playing Frank Underwood, the venal southern Democrat at the center of the show, says, “”A great man once said, everything is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power.”

Google, by way of GoodReads, would have me believe that Oscar Wilde said this, and he may have (I can’t find where he wrote it).

But whoever it was – damn. That’s some powerful shit there.
