Don't cry for me

Extract from an e-mail by the Governor of South Carolina to his coy mistress, the Argentinian 'Maria':
"I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night's light – but hey, that would be going into sexual details."

I suppose that this is intended to be romantic rather than bathetic. Embarrassing or what? When will people realise that writing something in an e-mail is about as private as writing it on a sandwich board and parading along Princes Street in it?
