Sex was not the crime but the context; by conflating the two, the clintons played both the left and the right like fiddles... and, some would say, they still are...
Oh, I know about this ridiculous argument; never believed it for a moment. Anyone with two (2) brain cells knows better. Both David Shippers in SELL OUT and William J. Bennett in The DEATH of OUTRAGE cover what was really going on and what the Democrats and MSM wanted the public to believe; i.e. it was just about sex!!
The fact is it's about obstruction of justice, suborning perjury, and a whole host of other crimes which should have seen Clinton leave office in disgrace.
