McConnell fundraiser: Wives have sex 'obligation' with husbands

Sen. Mitch McConnell isn’t pulling out of his Wednesday fundraiser with Dennis Prager. But for someone like McConnell who boasts about his strong record on women’s issues, he might want to.

That’s because Prager, the co-host of Wednesday’s event, has had some very questionable things to say when it comes to women.

For example, he has argued that wives “ought to consent to at least some form of sexual relations as much as possible,” regardless of what kind of mood they’re in.

In 2008, he wrote a two-part piece titled “When a Woman Isn’t In the Mood,” on Town Hall, where he goes into great detail on his views on men getting down with their ladies. He gives eight reasons why a wife should sleep with her husband, even if she doesn’t feel like it. For example:

  1. If most women wait until they are in the mood before making love with their husband, many women will be waiting a month or more until they next have sex.
  2. Why would a loving, wise woman allow mood to determine whether or not she will give her husband one of the most important expressions of love she can show him?
  3. What if your husband woke up one day and announced that he was not in the mood to go to work? If this happened a few times a year, any wife would have sympathy for her hardworking husband. But what if this happened as often as many wives announce that they are not in the mood to have sex?

Tickets for Wednesday’s event range from $15,200 for individuals to $30,400 per couple — even if she’s not in the mood to go.
