Meritorious Romance Novels are a thing. Or, there is at least one anyhow. Super dirty book (reoccurring use of the C word, my friends, and not as an insult!) in which a Fancy Lady's husband is rendered paralyzed & unable to perform sexually so she has an affair with her decidedly non-Fancy gamekeeper (there were no pool boys at the time and pirates were still pretty threatening I think, so gamekeeper is an obvious choice). According to Wikipedia who refreshed my memory (which was pretty much right on) says the moral of the story is that you can't live by mind alone, but that you have to live physically as well. I think this is bad news for poor Fancy Husband as his physical living is cut pretty short by his wheelchair (and also, you know, because it drove his Fancy Wife to the arms of a working-class dude).
