Skip to comments.Dr. Laura: Women Share Blame for Cheating Men
Posted on 03/11/2008 5:30:41 PM PDT by Cecily
Dr. Laura Schlessinger has never been one to shrink from controversy, and she leaped headlong into one on Monday when she said that if a husband cheats, his wife may share some of the blame.
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 her hero, hes very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs, the popular psychologist and radio personality said.
More commonly known as just Dr. Laura, Schlessinger made the remarks while participating in one of several panel discussions on TODAY dealing with the breaking news that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer had been connected to a high-priced prostitution ring.

Funny how she never blames men for much of anything. If a woman cheats, does hubby share the blame? I doubt Dr. Laura would say so.
Dr. Laura is harder on guys that look at porn than who use prostitutes.
I think she tries to over compensate for a world that blames men for everything. Although she seems to have jumped the shark here.
I told my daughters that men who have slobby, short hair, un womanly women, have girlfriends who are sharp, womanly and sexy...because it's a fact.
She probably just doesn’t want them finding her nude pictures on the Web. :)
Its quite simple. Men are horny. If they don’t have self-control, they get in trouble. She is not a man, so she wouldn’t understand.
She is very annoying.
No excuse for adultery, but as a practical matter, she’s right. If you are a poor excuse for a husband or a wife, you will pay the price sooner or later. Seems like lately I can meet a couple, see how they treat each other, and know pretty quickly where things are headed.
A couple of years later my wife will say, “Did you hear ..(fill in adultery/divorce story here)”, and I’ll smugly say, “See, I told you.”
My wife may leave me one day for smugness.
Maybe not. But in the big picture, men are blamed more than women. Just watch an Oprah show. Men are routinely booed and hissed on that show if they are the cheater. The women are much less so if they are. It's amazing so many metro's are willing to go on there for a lashing they know they will surely receive.
After seeing her in her youth, I always think of her name as Dr. Laura Slutinger.
It has long been established that if you keep your man in the doghouse too long you shouldn’t be surprised to find him in the cat house.
I think Dr. Laura is right on on this one. A lot of women fail to satisfy their man at his sexual peak only to be lonely when theirs kicks in later.
Ditto on that!!
Why do you think men cheat?
Dr Laura shouldn’t say JACK what her naked photos were sold on the internet HELLOOOO
she has a point.
We hear about it constantly, who wants to go home to a nag and a schrew? nobody.
Do the same people who condemn adultery also condemn the person who get a divorce to get away from the above stated smelly schrew? yes. can’t have both.
I agree with some things she says, but I’ve disagreed a lot. I heard her once tell a gal to get over it and don’t be upset her hubby was looking at porn on the internet secretly. I was surprised.
She seems to be harder on the women than she is men, but that is just my opinion.
The woman knows about what she’s saying. Women can drive a man to drink, they can drive a man to look for idolization elsewhere and there are plenty of women who will feed a man’s ego, marriage notwithstanding.
“It’s Hillary’s fault! There I said it. You know what happens when a guy don’t get his medicine.” Chris Rock - He said it several years before Laura.
And you know what, he’s probably right there too.
