Such information is in the same category of historical information as recording the size of a man's penis or a woman's breasts. IE: There's not a good reason to mention such information unless it played a serious role in how historical events unfolded.

Now if Hoover was indeed a fetishist and the decisions he made were because of his fetishes then we should record that. However, if there's no evidence to that effect then we should ignore it.
