so $80,000 is about 25 Kristens over 6 years


think of the tax revenue! what kind of sin tax could you levy on prostitution!

the mind does boggle.

i mean this as a serious question.
Or $4500/hour whatever the case may be.

Don't you love having moralistic governance, making prostitution illegal doesn't stop people selling sex; it just ensures that it stays outside the law.

This was interesting in the paper this morning.

But even a smidgen of evolutionary insight suggests that maleness plus money plus political power isn't likely to add up to the kind of sexual restraint that the public expects.

Dr. Laura weighs in

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/0...r_n_90994.html

Eliot Spitzer loves him some whores! How did it ever happen? What drove him to risk his career and marriage? And what does it say about the rest of us? These are the big questions taken up by the Today Show, and look who they got to answer them! Dr. Laura Schlessinger, that's who? Wondering if she said anything vaguely reprehensible? Yeah, kinda she did!

VIEIRA: Do you think women play any role in this, Dr. Laura?


SCHLESSINGER: It's interesting. what you said about what men need -- men do need validation. When they come into the world they're born of a woman. Getting the validation from mommy is the beginning of needing it from a woman. When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like our hero, he's very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs. These days, women don't spend a lot of time thinking about how they can give their men what they need.

VIEIRA: Are you saying women should feel guilty, like they somehow drove the man to cheat?

SCHLESSINGER: You know what, the cheating was his decision to repair what's damaged, and to feed himself where he's starving. But, yes, I hold women accountable for tossing out perfectly good men by not treating them with the love and kindness and respect and attention they need.

Self-loathing women are pathetic.

I took a look, and noticed some of those who liked what she said were probably men, judging by their screen names. I makes me wonder, is this the way a lot of men feel, or are these men just plain sexist?

But that's probably a whole new thread.

Some women agree with her too-and not just there. Some agree because they want to believe they can have control that way and that their guy will never stray as a result. Some agree for other reasons.

As for the men I think that would be individual-some are sexist, some just want to avoid personal responsibility for their misdeeds and blame them on someone else. Any guy with a healthy self concept and a healthy level of humility, integrity, and honesty would take responsibility for spending 80 grand (or whatever amount) on call girls- and he wouldn't say that his wife/gf was not sufficiently making him feel like a hero. A guy earns that, it's not a God given right to be made to feel that way by another person. Just like a woman earns that too.

Men should feel just as insulted by what she said (says). I wonder if she would also say that women will go to male prostitutes for the same reasons.

just use the "dinner and a show" loophole and you can avoid prosecution.
