Married man sleeps with 13 women in a week

Three different Lovefraud readers sent in a link to a story on the Today Show website. In a letter to Dr. Gail Schultz, a psychiatrist and Today Show contributor, a 41-year-old married man claimed that he will hit his all-time record for sleeping around—13 women in a week.

The guy says his wife is intelligent, beautiful, and they have a great sex life. Still, he looks at every woman who walks by and watches porn. He meets women online, sleeps with them on the first date, and then dumps them.

In her reply, Dr. Schultz’s first words are: “I think you are a sex addict and a sociopath.”

Here’s the story: Married man: ‘I slept with 13 women this week.’

Media says the “S” word

The good news is that finally, a media commentator used the word “sociopath.” Dr. Schultz identified the guy’s lack of guilt, remorse and empathy. “It sounds as though you have no capacity for emotion,” she wrote.

Even if the guy was exaggerating—one might doubt the ability of any man to hook up with 13 women in a week—the term certainly applies. I commend Dr. Schultz for using it.

The bad news is Dr. Schultz implies that the guy can be helped. She writes: “If you want to try living a normal life—something beyond a life governed by sexual addiction—you need treatment, either individual treatment or group treatment.”

Good luck with that.

But at least the word “sociopath,” correctly used, has made its way into the mainstream media.

apt/mg: I understand what you are saying about society having turned its back on God because it’s not politically correct.

However, what needs to be mentioned is that Christian (or otherwise Godly) women and men are often targeted by sociopaths because it’s guaranteed that Christians play by the rules, are loyal, compassionate and are all too willing to accept more then their fair share of responsibility – perfect fodder for a sociopath to hide behind and play his/her games.

It is encouraging to see that the world of sociopaths is starting to become exposed and information is being shared among the “normals” to prevent exploitation. I think we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg as far as acknowledging the unseen damage these individuals cause. If you look back in history, the worst atrocities were committed by sociopathic individuals with power.

Sociopaths rely on secrecy and shame on the part of the “normals” to continue their self-serving, exploitive behaviour. When we become as open about the destruction they deliberately cause, we will probably begin to see changes to our whole society and world for the better.

The problem is what to DO with these people that are inherently parasitic and otherwise unwelcome? If we can’t change them, and they don’t want (or can’t) change themselves, where is their place in society? Clearly, society would improve vastly if such people were removed but what does that mean exactly?

Along with recognition and exposure of sociopaths, we need to start discussing realistic solutions to dealing with the problem instead of the approach we have now, which is certainly not pro-active.
