  9. Smart • A “Crusader” Against Prostitution • Happily Married, etc. • Caught by the very people he trained • headlines • Apologizes, wife takes him back • Minor punishment- Now a Pundit on TV Mr. Spitzer

  10. Elected Official • Happily Married • Exhibitionist • Arrogant • Gets Caught with exposure on internet • Wife takes him back ( to treatment) • After publicity- still does it again—AND runs for office • Charges probably still pending Mr. Weiner

  11.

  15. What does this teach us ? Number One: The sexuality of driven and powerful men…

  16. They Love to be adored: videographers, interns, biographers • They want what they want • They can’t believe they will be caught • They are willing to be outrageous and shameless- • They believe that they deserve a soul mate or babe Note : there are no women caught…

  17. There are no powerhouse women in these scandals.. • There are women offenders- • Mary Kay Letourneau – grade school teacher • Bombshell blond high school teacher • Latest teacher with 18 year old – holding hands in the courtroom.. • But not Diane Feinstein, Ruth Ginsberg, Pelosi etc.. Why?

  18. Mentoring isn’t sexy for most women • Underlings don’t go after them.. • They are less arrogant, more careful and don’t get caught? • Are men more secretive lovers than mistresses? What else did we learn?

  19. Two- People really lie well

  20. Bill Clinton’s classic looking us into the camera and saying “ I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” • John Edwards declaring his love for his wife • Priceless.

  21. How could the head of the CIA think this would stay uncovered? • How did President Clinton think he could cover up obvious interaction with Monica Lewinsky? • How did Governor Stanford think he could just disappear for days? etc. People lie to themselves well…

  22. Three-How compulsive sexuality can be

  23. How did John Edwards and Arnold Schwarzenegger allow themselves to father a child? • Why couldn’t they take simple precautions- for their health, safety, and wife?

  24. Four: The underbelly of political marriages..

  25. The Clinton marriage is an interesting piece of work.. And over time, both they- and we have accepted it.. What men do when women will stay..

  26. The Political Marriage is its own intricate set of compromises in includes: • Admiration and belief in your partner • Belief in his purpose even when he is flawed • Loyalty and partnership at its core • Sadness when the loyalty goes only one way • A way of life, hard to give up, hard to live with • But is it only political marriages- or are these just the ones we din out about..

  27. The level of surveillance we have now gives us full exchanges- more information than ever– and still – women stay.. And perhaps, men as well.. What would we know if we had perfect information on everyone?

  28. Five-men really don’t understand women’s power

  29. The press was contemptuous or over protective of Monica Lewinsky– but she kept the dress • Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones went to the public • Broadwell found a way to do Patreus’ biography and flew around the world with him • Edward’s mistress got a baby and a residence Are these women victims?

  30. Six- how kinky affair sex can be..

  31. Monica with a cigar • Oral Sex in the President’s Office while he is on the phone.. • The immortal words of Prince Charles with his affair with Camilla on his wish to be her tampon!!

  32. The Bible belt in particular, seems to breed some sexual hijinks • The Governor of South Carolina • The State Rep from Indiana • The President from Arkansas • We are no longer surprised at the hypocrisy

  33. Seven: The inner workings of adultery …

  35. Eight: Headlines are a new form of sex ed!

  36. Trying to explain oral sex to kids during the Clinton scandal • The Mary Kay Letourneau Types – what is wrong about a teacher with a 13 year old.. How about marrying him? • ` Exhibitionism from Wiener • Prostitution from Spitzer

  37. Nine: Our prudishness is being compromised- ( are we becoming European?)

  38. We resurrect almost all of the offenders (Edwards is probably the exception..) • We condemn infidelity- but we are getting used to it..

  39. Clinton has obviously been ( is?) a player- but we love him anyhow. What we say is different from what we do

  40. Will more people tolerate being betrayed ? Have these public scandals changed us?

  41. Ten: Forget about Privacy

  42. Nothing is ever lost • We have aggressive retrieval going back years • No one seems to be able to resist email • Even a CIA head could not figure out a safe system • We catch child molesters- but also errant public servants and everyday cheaters..

  43. What’s the ultimate impact of scandals?

  44. Does it hurt our expectations about marriage? • Will it change the way we act in marriage? • Does it affect our own individual behavior? • Should we be more European? • What do we think about male and female differences?
