"Private Lives" is the fifteenth episode of the sixth season of House. It first aired on March 8, 2010.
The team treats an avid blogger, but finds her difficult to treat when she insists on discussing all procedures and doctors on her blog. House notices that the blogger respects no privacy and keeps nothing secret but makes no mention of her bodily functions. This leads him to ask her about her feces and eventually to diagnosing her with Whipple's disease.
Wilson convinces House to go speed dating along with Chase, who becomes conflicted with the realization that women date him for his looks. Chase shares his concerns with Thirteen who assures him that there had been something real between him and Cameron.
Meanwhile, House and Wilson learn secrets about each other:
House discovers that Wilson acted in scenes that were later edited into a porn movie called "Feral Pleasures." After House tries to see the movie by renting it, Wilson tries to avoid House seeing it by having it returned to the store before House watches it, but House tracks down the film, and watches it. Even though Wilson tells him not to spread the word, House hangs up posters of his movie around the hospital. Afterwards, several people must have seen the film or know about the phrase that Wilson says in the movie ("Be not afraid. The forest nymphs have taught me how to please a woman"), and start saying or just hinting the phrase to Wilson himself.
Seeking revenge, Wilson discovers that House, an atheist, is reading sermons, which were written by his biological father who was a minister in church. Wilson surmises that House is studying the sermons to see if his mind was like his father's. However, when asked by Wilson if he found anything intellectual written in the book, House replies, "underneath the God stuff... more God stuff."
