Eliot Spitzer Slapped on the Hand!

According to a Newsweek article, Eliot Spitzer will not be prosecuted for breaking the law for hiring prostitutes or for transporting women across state lines for the purpose of engaging them in sex for money.  Sex Addiction Los Angeles

The Department of Justice has reduced prostitution, and therefore exploitation of women, to a mere scandal.  Despite the fact that prostitution violates and harms women both emotionally and physically, Mr. Spitzer is being slapped on the hand.  Mr. Spitzer is quoted as saying that he feels like he’s paid for his “sin” implying it’s time to move on, and Alan Dershowitz is quoted as saying that it was “no big deal.”

Based on the depth and breadth of Mr. Spitzer’s actions and sexual behaviors, the loss of his position as Governor of New York state, and the wreckage he undoubtedly caused his family, my guess is that Mr. Spitzer is most likely a sex addict.  Because he simply “sinned,” he will sadly, never make it to treatment to face his problems.  This ruling by the DOJ sends a message to women thoughout the country that the “good ‘ole boys” club is alive and well.

As a woman, I am personally offended and incensed by this ruling.  As a citizenn, I find it irresponsible at best and unconscionable at worst.  It makes me wonder who paid whom and how deep does the prostitution ring in New York state go?

    I disagree from your stance on prostitution. I truly believe that prostitution is a necessity for men’s healthy sexual life. The problem arises when we have human traffic and sexual slavery, but the Spitzer case has nothing to do with that. in this case, criticism arose from moralism and bigotry.

    Dear Doctor

    I cannot this obsession with prostitution, that is an activity that harms nobody. Don’t you think that is incoherent to engage in treating people on sexual problems and having such a strictly puritan view about sexuality? Why sexuality should be addressed mainly from the point of view of “addiction”?? Aren’t you guys covert moralists??

    P.S. the last time my post hasn’t been published…(censorship?)

    regards,

    Dear Doctor

    The reason I believe prostitution should be legal is not because “it forces the people participating in it to face terrible consequences because they are often not protected by the law.”, as you said, but, on the contrary, because where it’s legal, like in Brazil, it provides an incalculable benefit in terms of learning about women’s sexuality for many men. Myself, I had hundreds of encounters with prostitutes, not in the USA where prostitution and illegal in almost every state, but in Brazil and Europe, and I assure you that the knowledge gained was very useful for my relations with “regular” women . I never had a problem with prostitutes (neither I know somebody who had). The risk increases when the illegality pushes the activity of prostitution in the hands of organized crime, as often happens in the USA. In the USA, unfortunately, feminism and the ideology of “political correctness” continue to prevent millions of people to enjoy a freer and healthy sexuality. The results are known: widespread neuroses, homosexuality and deranged gunmen who seek revenge for their sexual frustration …

    best,

    Alessandro
