Lying because in his mind "sexual relations" didn't include hummers and cigar play?

My guess is that the reason the only thing he ever actually put in Monica was a cigar was so that he could say, in all good conscience, that he hadn't had sex with her.

He's a lawyer. Our laws are written with dozens and dozens of caveats and exceptions. We have no choice. Some of these caveats and exceptions are included in the laws for very good reason. Some for very bad reason. But it's the job of a lawyer to look for these exceptions and caveats -- to be scrupulous about the details, and to use the details on behalf of their clients.

I find it entirely unsurprising that he could justify his behavior (which was not uncommon behavior anyway) on the basis of never actually having had sexual congress with her.

Nits are there to be picked.
