Oprah Show: Porn and Adultery Good for Your Marriage

From redstate.com.

“Oprah is a talented woman who has tackled innumerable topics but nothing like this has crossed her couches before. The show that aired Tuesday, September 25, 2007 was entitled: “237 Reasons to Have Sex” and featured numerous “experts” on intimacy and marriage.

First to the defense of aberrant behavior was Dr. Pepper Schwartz who took it upon herself to fly across the world experiencing one-night stands and writing a book about her adventures. Among other things Dr. Schwatz advocated to Oprah the notion of “friends with benefits” … read, casual sex:

“We get together, we have a great time,” said Dr. Schwartz “We adore each other, we respect each other, we have great sex, and that’s it. It stays in that little category and it doesn’t get out of it.”

Of course Oprah conducted a poll of her own audience bringing to light several choice examples of the slippery slope that families face in our culture. Take Winnie, for example, who says she saw a gorgeous home, and she told her husband of 44 years about it that night. “He hawed about it and I said, ‘I’ll give you the best sex tonight you have ever had. I don’t care if it’s all night,'” she says. “And so we did and I got the house the next day.”

Next, Oprah talks to Janee who owns a small collection of pornography, or, eh, “erotica” – as she prefers to call it. “I think with respect to my mother’s generation, her mother’s generation, you know, exploring the adult entertainment industry was just unheard of. It probably wasn’t even an option for them,”

Another expert, Dr. Saltz, chimes in advocating pornography to women for overcoming their concerns about the addiction that their spouses indulge. To her credit, Dr. Saltz notes: “The problem is, it can be a double-edged sword in that anything really pleasurable can become kind of addictive.”

Next, Oprah trots out the best of the breed Greg and Hollie, married with two children enjoying all the normal things that families do… and, oh yeah, practicing “open marriages”, read adultery. As Oprah recounts the story:

During a long car trip Gregg asked Hollie—who says she had never had sex with anyone besides Gregg—if she was curious about being with someone else. “And I said, ‘Well, nothing’s missing. I don’t need it. I don’t really think about it,'” Hollie says. “But sure, I mean, if you’re curious, if you’ve only had one partner your whole life, I mean, sure, you’d wonder what it would be like with somebody else.”

Eventually Hollie started dating and eventually sleeping with one of their mutual friends. Gregg says he’s flirted with other women but hasn’t started an outside relationship of his own.
“She just has more love in her life,” Gregg says. “It doesn’t take anything away from what the two of us have.”

As we pointed out previously Oprah has aired numerous shows delving into the topic of pornography addiction. These included the sad tale of woman who killed her husband in self defense after he went on a porn-induced rage and a former gospel singer whose life was shattered by the addiction. Why Oprah, whose influence is unmistakable, would backtrack to advocate pornography and adultery is beyond us.”
