Please tell Bill Cosby we are so glad he is alive and well! My husband and I have been following Mr. Cosby since 1966 when we were living in San Francisco. May the laughter continue for a very long time.

As parents and grandparents, we also appreciate Mr. Cosby's message to parents to turn off the TV, start parenting, and raise responsible kids.

I am married and I have a girlfriend on line. How is that cheating? I can be anything I want. I can be a male, a female, I can be 18 or I can be 60. I can make myself into whatever they want me to be. There is no limit. I just love the internet.

In regards to America pulling it's troops and equipment out of Iraq, effectively ending that Bush Family 'Oil War'.

In Vietnam, Millions of US Military weapons, explosives, aircraft, helicopters, artillery pieces and vehicles were left behind, literally abandoned. They were happily accepted by the North Vietnam forces. The American taxpayers then were put on the hook to replace 150% of the abandoned and used equipment with newer, upgraded and hyper-expensive replacements.

I don't see any difference with the unfolding foobar in Iraq. The Pentagon and vast US Military Complex are already writing up gigantic funding requests to replace and upgrade more US Military weapons and equipment than even entered Iraq in the first place. Making this yet another gigantic giveaway of US Military hardware in modern history and this occurring during one of the worse recessions in America's entire history. This marks just another crass and callous attempt to HOSE the American taxpayers for every dime possible by the US Military Complex.

Of course I'm happy America is finally pulling out of Iraq and 'that' Bush Family 'Oil War'.

China got what Saddam had repeatedly refused to give them, the Iraqi Oil field leases. Iran got the biggest prize America could give them, Saddams head and part of Iraq's government to greatly expand their influence into Iraq.

Thousands of American's gave their lives, even more gave their blood, sweat, tears and nearly 1 Trillion taxpayer dollars to Iraq. In return the depraved and utterly corrupt Bush-Cheney administration gave CHINA the multi-Trillion dollar Iraqi Oil field leases for mere pennys. The American people and taxpayers got HOSED.

I am a gay woman. The internet has been the best thing in life for me. I can play a male role and none of the women have any idea that I am really a woman. I share a house with a male friend. So I send them his pictures. I have him call them once after I tell him what to say and they never question me again. If they want me to call again, I just tell them I do not like to talk on the phone and they easily accept this since I met them on the internet. I used to be very lonely. Now I have many girlfriends and it makes me very happy. Thank you Internet.

Smith in Oregon   August 3rd, 2010 7:57 pm ET

In regards to the 'upcoming period of Solar Maximum activity'.

Thanks entirely to America's Shadow Government created by the depraved and utterly corrupt Republican administration of Bush-Cheney under the guise of 'Dept. of Homeland Security', America's taxpayers have poured hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars into America's Reconn Satellites, Space and Global sensors and are entirely silent on the high emissions flowing from this solar systems Sun. It appears American citizens after footing the bill are the last of the last to be told what is occurring with this solar systems Sun.

The extreme rise in temperature in the large Mediterranean Sea indicates billions of excess BTU's have already been stored in that body of water alone.

Perhaps Wikileaks will reveal to the world what is actually going on and NASA and NOAA have already determined, go figure!

Please find a different host while larry is out she's just not cutting it and the clinton wedding was a waste of air time there was nothing intresting about it she obviously kept it privet for a reason.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   August 3rd, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Cheating helps relations more then they break them up .

Jose   August 3rd, 2010 9:08 pm ET

I can't believe that your not doing a story about this tragic workplace shooting. Employer's and Employee's need to be educated on workplace violence as well workplace bullying. Workplace bullying is often overlooked by employers. I think this tragedy could of been prevented if more was done to prevent workplace violence along with workplace bullying.

Bruno   August 3rd, 2010 9:10 pm ET

Desire cannot be fulfilled with lust, because it cannot be fulfilled!

Our desire is infinite and we need to control our inner snake in stead of letting it control us. True illumination comes through ONE partner, this holy spiritual bond is only possible with the one. This becomes evident in all religions. If you are a slave of your desires you will never be happy, even though you might fool yourself that you are.

Linda Larson   August 3rd, 2010 9:11 pm ET

Hey Girls,
The subject is fascinating (cheating), but your repartee is not. Somebody (the hostess, maybe) ought to step in and mediate the discussion because I can't understand anything being said with all the crosstalk/yelling going on.

Jim   August 3rd, 2010 9:11 pm ET

I've been in an open relationship for 12 years now and it's the only true love relationship I have ever had. It's not the sex with others that kill a relationship, its the lies that kill you and your relationship. Humans were never meant to be monogamous, the church made that up. It's completely unrealistic to expect people to only ant to be with one person for their entire lives. Some people may be strong enough to repress those feelings if they so choose and more power to them but it's not natural and they do have feelings still.

Diana Lopez   August 3rd, 2010 9:14 pm ET

I believe cheating, whether a man or a woman, is TREASON. One cannot have a relationship with someone who is a liar. Infidelity degrades the other person in the marriage or relationship. It is not only about sex, is about trust and wanting a life together.

Mario Della Casa   August 3rd, 2010 9:14 pm ET



I AM A MANN AND ON TOP OF THAT, I'm Loyal & Dedicated to my Friends & Faithful to the EXTREME when I am in Love. I am Passionate, & FIRMLY believe that sex is the Greatest Expression of Intimacy & Caring between two people that love one another and I believe that sex is important but it's Romance, Love, Laughter, & The Genuine Meaning of True-Bonding that feeds my soul.

Jaime   August 3rd, 2010 9:15 pm ET

OMG! Your british guest on the far right couldn't be more wrong! My former boss had affairs with 3 men, 1 of whom was my boyfriend. She preyed on him at his lowest point in life and fed him lies about me to do it, all while pretending to be my friend! So yes, women do prey on men!

Paula Walker   August 3rd, 2010 9:15 pm ET

This is ridiculous!!! This is prostitution!!

Debra Lee   August 3rd, 2010 9:16 pm ET

In 40 years my jewish husband nor I have cheated on each other. We have a totally committed life with our children and extended FAMILY. WE ARE THE LUCKY ONES. We took our vows forever.

Charles   August 3rd, 2010 9:17 pm ET

I will be 50 years old this month and have been married for 30 years. I have been faithful for all of the years. If someone is unhappy with the sexual portion of their relationship than this is something that needs to be communicated with your significant other. Unfortunately marriage is more than just about sex. If it is only about sex than you will never be happy anyway.

Clark   August 3rd, 2010 9:19 pm ET

This show right now obviously fails to offer a male perspective. If a woman uses sex or lack thereof as a form of control she is only destroying her marriage by offering little option, almost forcing the man to cheat. Woman today are often on this power trip but little do they know they undermine their authority by helping to diminish the backbone of a relationship and that is sex. Holly's strong point here is she is being realistic and all she is saying is that honesty is the best policy. If a man wants to cheat, he should be open and honest about it and maybe then his wife will think twice about withholding the emotional relief that a man feels post-coitus.

Jeremy   August 3rd, 2010 9:20 pm ET

Men do not know how to express themselves so they end up doing it through sex, drinking, or they tie themselves up in their careers. If you dig underneath those "male urges" you'll find out what a man really wants. Focus on those feelings and the need to release sexually will likely change. Acting on urges without thinking is just plain laziness...or a fear of what's underneath.

martha   August 3rd, 2010 9:21 pm ET

Good evening. What happens if the woman (or the husband) loses their sexual drive for whatever reason. It could be medications, etc. Would it be kosher to cheat?

scott   August 3rd, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Are they serious?!! Cheating is not a thing that should take place in a relationship we the individuals have made a commitment to one another. My son actually told me that his wife of less than a year, said that it was okay to cheat because it didnt mean that you don't love the person that you are married to. I told me, that's a bunch of bs. If you have to find what you are missing in your relationship in someone else, you don't need to be in that relationship or with that person. INFIDELITY IS NEVER OKAY. The women from Great Britian are a cheaters dreamer.LOL.

Sarah   August 3rd, 2010 9:22 pm ET

I've been the same polyfidelitous relationship for 5 and a half years with the same two men. I think the "monogamy" segment was poorly constructed, and relied on stereotypes about male and female desire. The assumption that all men are hound dogs and all women are wannabe Betty Crocker is a crock. Everyone is different.

All relationships require negotiation in the long term. Each person has a responsibility to be honest about who they are and what they want. Law of probability says SOMEONE else will want the same things they do. That's it, end of story.

Don Wilson   August 3rd, 2010 9:23 pm ET

I hear all the women on the show .. dedication .. relationship .. LOVE .. but what happens when I am 50 and still very alive and have sexual needs and the wife has gone through menopause and has NO – NONE – NADA – interest in sex of any kind.

Does marriage mean I have to spend the rest of my life sex-free just because the wife is not interested? She drinks and I do not like being intoxicated ... but I still let her drink?

We all have needs .. I do not want to end a 30 year relationship, kids grown up, grandkids, assets JUST because I need to leave the relationship just to fulfill a need. She says fine .. let someone else do the work!

Jorge Alim Curi   August 3rd, 2010 9:23 pm ET

Infidelity goes way beyond just "sex". Infidelity means you are living or sharing your life with someone you can't trust. That's a very, at least, bad of leading your own life. We are not supposed to trust people you barely know, however, someone you are sharing your life with, that's totally different.
I'm sorry for that lady, who thinks infidelity is not a problem. I assume she has never fallen in love with anyone, maybe herself., because aside from God, we also need to trust someone in ourn present life.

Travis   August 3rd, 2010 9:24 pm ET

Do women pray on men?
– Yeah, they do. I am a twenty-one year old male that goes to many different bars and clubs. Every time I go, there are women that are there for the sole purpose of bringing some guy back to the house. They are no different from the many men that are doing the same thing.
If you are married, should you cheat?
– This is crazy, what is the point of marriage if the sacred tie of sex within a marriage is not withheld.

Jennifer   August 3rd, 2010 9:24 pm ET

I am married women of four yrs. About a yr. ago my husband and I decided to see other couples. (swinging) We meet other couples and if we like them we sleep with them for the night. The next day our life goes back to normal and our sex life is better. We enjoy each other, and we have a good marriage, but sometimes the bedroom life gets
a little boring. When we are with other couples it is like a new relationship and makes the bedroom life come alive again.

Ruth   August 3rd, 2010 9:24 pm ET

Larry, I understand that you must have something to show at 9:00pm, but to actually start questioning whether people should cheat on their mates or not is ridiculous. I know that Americans are going against everything that God had established , to go this far is outrageous and ludicrous.

I never had time to write, but this is well worth it!

Cherish   August 3rd, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Am glad American women are coming to reality that men will cheat no matter how sweet ur h......le is. Am from Africa and been married for 28years. Throughout my marriage (still married) I knew my husband was cheating but that made me took care of him more and better because I knew we were many fighting for his attention. He is done with all those women, but am still here. If American women will look the other way when their husbands cheat, divorce and single moms will be reduced by at least 60%.

Ruth   August 3rd, 2010 9:26 pm ET

By the way!

This data is inaccurate: " 100% of men cheat" This is a lie and I speak for my future husband and all holy men of God out there.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   August 3rd, 2010 9:26 pm ET

I once had two girlfriends at the same time one would come in the day and the other in the evening I was always very happy until after 4 months they were both there at the same time that was kinda interesting .

Michelle   August 3rd, 2010 9:31 pm ET

It all comes down to the couple. Some people marry and over time the wives or husbands are no longer interested in sex or have a need that that is not being fulfilled, that does not mean they don't love their partner but have needs wether it be the husband or wife. Communication is what keeps a relationship strong and too often we take the easy road ( like a calculator instead of pen and paper). So wether you approve of your partner going outside of the relationship or not, by communicating your needs in an adult way can make a very strong marriage.

found out about affair by husbands blackberry, he then left by email   August 3rd, 2010 9:32 pm ET

I discovered that my husband was cheating thanks to his blackberry. I saw an email from a woman talking about hotel rooms on a previous business trip he and other took. He said she was an employee and it was nothing to do with him, she was just checking in on her room. That is all it took for me to look into things. Although he deleted the emails the search button was how I discovered the depth of the cheating. Once I realized what he was doing and confronted him, he left by email. Irony? At the time it wasn't funny but I suppose once a coward, always a coward.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   August 3rd, 2010 9:32 pm ET

A marriage makes a women feel as if sex is part of her job as a wife and sometimes theres no fun and a something strange brings the passion back .

Valerie NYC   August 3rd, 2010 9:35 pm ET

OMG! This is 2010! Everything is negotiable. I love the idea of "negotiated infidelity". That´s another way of calling an open relationship. I would rather be with my partner for a long term relationship and not lose her over her desire to have an occasional sex encounter with someone else. And visa versa.
I HAVE! I have seen a successful a relationship where both partners are having extra-marital sexual (and only sexual) affairs. Brief encounters. Previously agreed. Negotiated infidelity.

Maureen   August 3rd, 2010 9:36 pm ET

I believe that all men love to have sex and think about cheating. But not all men act on that. It is called a choice.

Mark   August 3rd, 2010 9:38 pm ET

What's the name of tonight's host?

Michael Armstrong Sr.   August 3rd, 2010 9:39 pm ET

@ Michell Maybe sex has become a job with no passion .

steery-us   August 3rd, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Look, as long as u keep the sexual department in check, between u and ur spouse, no need for cheat'n. If someon holds back from the other, to the point that drives u to look otherwise, it's their fault as well as urs when u cheat. I told my other half if she don't step up, I'll step out.
EVERY couple has problems. Keep the sexual relationships full on for both, and that's one problem u should never have to worry about, plain and simple!

Pamela   August 3rd, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Marriage is all about commitment and fildelity. If people want more than one partner, then don't get married. It's that simple.

Maureen   August 3rd, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Men that cheat are selfish. If they can't be faithful, they are all about them.

Caroline   August 3rd, 2010 9:44 pm ET

I'm sorry but what!? I am outraged! Cheating is cheating. Marriage is NOT a negotiation! If a man cheats on his wife it's because he is more than likely not satisfied with his marriage. Same for a wife. Mistress, it's called BEING used. That man doesn't want you, he wants the sex. Don't get married! I think everyone who uses other people for sex and believes that's okay is demented! This is ridiculous! And for all the wives out there who think it's okay for you and your husband, it sounds like you're in denial and too afraid to leave. How can you stand to be treated like this? Get a backbone, stand up for yourself, and quit letting your husbands abuse you like this!

Mike Smith   August 3rd, 2010 9:46 pm ET

I am a married 45 year old male. I have problems in my marriage. I don't want to sell our home and get a divorce. So I find women on the internet for a relationship. It has been difficult finding women during this summer as a man, so I find when I become a woman, I find many female friends and some of who might be willing to do more than just friendship. This is very exciting for me. I can keep my marriage and have a girlfriend on line. I do not see that as cheating. It is much better than finding one in real life and bring home STDs

Valerie NYC   August 3rd, 2010 9:47 pm ET

@Michelle – Nicely said.
@Pamela- As any relationship, marriage is all about communication.

asb50   August 3rd, 2010 9:49 pm ET

I am always outraged by people who say it is all right for a man to cheat because his wife "closes his legs." How dare that be said! Generalities are a very bad thing to make.

How about the wife who cries to herself for fourteen years because her husband cannot achieve an erection? And yet the man takes another woman to the bed he shares with his wife to "play?" On the night the husband leaves her, after a 3 1/2 year affair, the wife finds the emails in which the mistress blackmails (the word of both the husband and mistress) the husband into coming to her. The mistress has been writing sexually explicit emails and outlining what that "play" has consisted of – activities which the husband had never been willing to do with the wife. (The husband had been sexually abused as a child, the wife learned.)

And how about the friendship which the mistress – at the behest of the husband – had developed with the wife? "Let's be girlfriends." Glasses of wine late into the night – "Girlfriend - Is it that time of night when we can talk about - SEX?" Calling the wife to set up lunch at which the mistress would spill the beans to the wife - unless the husband would leave the wife by her deadline?

HOW DARE sexually loose women say it is the fault of the wife - who would have LOVED for her husband to have been able to make love to her?

Bob   August 3rd, 2010 9:49 pm ET

I can't believe this is the best topic that the show can come up with to talk about. Aren't there more important things going on in the country/world? But while I'm writing a comment – yes, women do pray on men. Men pray on women. People cheat. Not news.

denise   August 3rd, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Please leave Jerry Springer material to Jerry Springer! Tonight's show was as though the changes in women's lives over these past 40 years, never happened. The host posed no serious challenge to the absurd statements made by guests. This is a disservice to women and men alike.

Brian   August 3rd, 2010 9:52 pm ET

most of the broken marraiges seam to be with middle aged couples.
I think that the femail menopause is the cause of this.
It kills the wife's sexual desire, both mentaly and Physically

Rob   August 3rd, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Wow! I really enjoyed the infidelity issue. I think that all three of these ladies are correct... I seriously believe in being faithful. When men AND women have their "urges" with a "closed legged" spouse, there are other ways to deal with that then cheating. However, if a spouse wants to cheat then they will.... In that case I would want to know in advance so I or my spouse could protect themselves from STDs and such. Also, not all "Mistresses" have the knowledge that they are contributing to cheating and are as much victim to being hurt and being lied to.
In conclusion, if these three lovely ladies on LKL would work together and not fight each other.... They would probably rule the relationship world!!!

Harriet Hultquist   August 3rd, 2010 10:05 pm ET

I did stay with a cheating husband (7 year itch) and we ended up in divorce after being married 39 yrs. He became more blatant as time went on and seemed proud of himself. I wish I had divorced him early on. At least I'd have had a chance at another life.

Laci Mosley   August 3rd, 2010 10:18 pm ET

I have made a decision to NOT stay with my cheating husband. It has been the hardest decision I have ever had to make and because I have two wonderful children it has been extra difficult-and unfair. The choice was left up to me to divorce. I can never trust this man again and am disgusted at the thought of being with him. I think people who cheat are selfish, destructive, immature individuals. Even if you no longer love yoru spouse to cheat is to show a complete lack of respect for them and the family you have created. If your unhappy..grow up and SAY SO. Don't sneak around. For thsoe that sleep with married people-you are also responsible for the destruction of the family. Sometimes a fire is only a flame..until the right...and available..chemical comes along..then it can burn out of control.

Megan   August 3rd, 2010 10:28 pm ET

My husband and I have been happily married for right at 11 years. I will say that we occasionally bring other partners into our relationship. I do think a very high percentage of guys do and have cheated for the fact that guys have different needs than women. I have many married friends that are not happy or have gotten divorces because of this issue. But on the other hand, I also have friends with open relationships like ours' that are perfectly happy. We do not love each other any less and to be honest it is kind of exciting. It opens up entirely new sexual opportunities for the both of us. This type of relationship will only work for couples that do communicate...meaning, none of these acts are carried out without the other partner's consent or presence.

Bud Miller   August 3rd, 2010 10:29 pm ET

I was in a relationship for over 25 years that was an open marriage. We loved each other, shared our lives our hopes our dreams together. Marriage is more than just sex. If that is all your marriage is all about, you are in trouble. I thought were they very rude to Holly Hill.

Is that where the blame is found and the sin of extramarital affairs created ? It's one thing the Pope has no interest in, why has the church devised an intangible trist with it?

Wendy   August 3rd, 2010 11:41 pm ET

After his classless comment to request an America's Got Talent contestant to breathe her virus on Howie Mandel to "murder him," it shows that Piers does not have the tact or class to take over the Larry King show.

Cajazz76:24:8   August 3rd, 2010 11:47 pm ET

Women say men do not appeal to their emotional side and men say they are limited by their creativity...neither can think outside the box..

Ryan Bush   August 4th, 2010 12:10 am ET

We must learn to balance our emotional and intellectual needs with our survival instincts. No case is typical, and the words 'always' and 'never' should not be used.

Michael   August 4th, 2010 12:12 am ET

Any man who has money knows well enough that there are plenty of women who "prey", aim to "prey" and live to "prey" on men with money. It's absolutely amazing to me how completely naive Holly Hill is. Not even fun or funny to listen to.

Clay Kearney   August 4th, 2010 12:15 am ET

These are all issues that have degraded the American society and are crushing what little values we men have left in relationships. There are no morals in what these women are saying. The human body is differentiated from beasts by being able to be monogamous with one partner instead of populating the herd. What is the purpose of having a consecrated marriage or relationship if that trust is destroyed?? These women have no self esteem and are female chovinists. All they want to do is take out their rage on the unfaithful men they've dealt with in their lives. Why not forgive them? Why not help them become real faithful men who love and cherish one and only one woman?? That's what life is about. Why do think HIV is so prominent?? The exact reason these women are talking about is the cause.

Mark   August 4th, 2010 12:15 am ET

Why are women always the victims...get over yourselves! I have just been betrayed by my Christian wife of 10 years, not once but over seven or eight times.

The double standard is that I would be considered a loser or "abuser" and that is why she cheated. In fact she is as bad as anyone ( man or women) who violates a sacred covenant. A covenant between two people and for some with God in the middle. I have found recently that more women today are cheating. Why can't you address issues fairly.

Women cheat equally. That is a fact...they just appear to be more vocal and embrace being a victim.

The National Bank of Fidelity will close your account when you make deposits in another bank....

Debra been cheated on!   August 4th, 2010 12:16 am ET

Young women are talking and planning on getting the rich man from their wives...the young girl who was married absolutely was witnessed going on his emails etc. to find out how much he was worth...and yes she went after him sexually and she won...I didn't stand a he is with her and blames the wife for his miserable realization that he has lost everything for her...including his career for having an interoffice affair...these young girls are destroying homes, families, children, and they need help mentally!!!!!! and these relationships never last...holly hill needs a reality check...she is nothing but an attention seeking young girl who will grow up someday and find she is very lonely and no man wants her because she is old!!! these young girls are glorified prostitutes...go after the rich man...give him sex...get the gifts etc...leave our husbands alone...we love them...for who they are...not for what they can buy us...the young women are taking our lives away from us and I am so happy that I can sue these young women for spending my children's university can't speak about it if you haven't lived it...get a reality check...

tommy   August 4th, 2010 12:17 am ET

this show on cheating is the most unbeleivable thing i have ever seen. no wonder we have such a problem staying with one woman. first of all the show assumes that only men cheat. what a joke. women are more obsessed with sex than men because thats all they talk about when they are together, and you know it. we are driven to have sex with as many women as possible, but we try to stay with one woman when we make our minds to . this show is NOT helping LOL

Cajazz76:24:8   August 4th, 2010 12:20 am ET

Marriage is self-sacrifice between two parties, who know what they want and will get in return...the wedding is a short ceremony to blur for a moment, the reality of what each will find the next morning..caj

alberta   August 4th, 2010 12:21 am ET

people done took the morals out of marriage,people get married for all the wrong reasons now and feel like its so ok,and when you have shows like this, is not really making it no better,people cheat cause they want to,they were not ready for marriage anyways but they seem like what the hey lets do it,people have taken the morals out of marriage and its not sacared anymore,its a joke now,and god did not create marriage to be like that,it was created to be sacared till death does us part not untill the next hottie walks by,marriage is sacared to me when me and my husband said our vows we meant it and GOD WAS LEADING THE WAY!!! people tends to leave god out of everything including marriage so why ask why!!!!!???

Share? Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free. If a man wanted a prostitute for a wife, he would have married her. And why would you believe a man that cheats, Sarah? You base what you know on liars? lol. That's so funny to me and sad at the same time....

Women dont understand why men cheat and never will. The real issue is women cheat nowadays as much or more. A man has to pursue the woman he is with and with that cat and mouse game comes consequences. A man falls in love with a women for her. A women falls in love with a man for what he has. A successful man could marry an unsuccessful woman but it is rarely the other way around. This is a system that American women have created so dont complain with your results.

I watched this with friends, and we were amazed how clueless the "Infedility therapist" was. Really she doesn`t know women are sharks; they actually prey after men. Please what world does she leave in?

Holly on the otherhand didn`t make sense, she just wants to sell her book.

CNN Anchor: " If a shark is coming is near you should you swim to shore?"
"SHARK EXPERT" : "No actually you have to stay calm, and face the shark, because they can sense fear"

Well Lions can sense fear too, the difference between a shark and a lion is once you are out of the water you are safe, you don't need to swim with sharks to understand how to be safe from sharks, the only way to be safe is to get out of the water as fast as you can.

The subject of tonight's show regarding "infidelity" was an absolute travesty. One of the ten commandments given to the Israelites many years ago forbade adultery.

The concept presented tonight that extra-marital relationships will actually strengthen a marriage is absolutely "out to lunch." If fractures and betrays commitments and is nothing but submission to selfish desires. I have been an educator for 34 years and in that time have worked with numerous children that have tried to survive the outcomes of failed relationships. It is not nice.

These british women are acting like men are the only ones who cheat which is completely wrong.....I will admit that being with the same sex partner for 15 years and not cheating ever since that maybe if i did cheat not saying i will that it might cure my diabetes....

Man was not designed to be monogamous, hence the hormones that is released by male and females regardless of whether you are married or not monogamy was introduced by man in a religious form by man a couple of thousand years ago.

I just lost a girlfriend for the second time because she's sexual interested in some one else. Facebook is definitely supporting girls to be cheaters because it allows them to shop around for guys. While these relationships look harmless because it's virtual it eventually develops; however, bringing it up to your girlfriend means your "preventing her from having friends" or your a "paranoid stalker." It definitely doesn't make sense to me that the one cheating can use your curiosity as a tool to further engage in a relationship with another. In the end it can be your fault that you got dumped because you were to paranoid about her relationship with another guy who was just a friend but she is now dating him as a shoulder to lean on. WTF

I think the woman filling in for Larry King's name is Ally or Ollie? I've seen her on Oprah but she is doing a terrible job as the show host. She allows the women to talk over each other which is so annoying!!! Next time she fills in for Larry, please don't allow that to happen!!!!!

For 2 full years the Republican Potty pushed how awful Black America is on the American people, American voters rewarded them by electing in a Black President. Now the Republican Potty is pushing how awful Brown America is on the American people, and American voters will reward them this coming November by removing as many Republican Potty'tican Archie Bunkers from public service as possible, thanks for the incentive!

Ralph   August 4th, 2010 3:55 am ET

Great show on both topics. 2 opinions

1st Topic: Don't get married in the first place..enjoy freedom and use the scientific technology to have your own children.

2nd Topic: Don't swim with Sharks and if you are a watersports freak, you will be attacked due to weather related conditions that bring sharks to the shore.

Bonus Opinion to CNN.: Change the CNN Anchor covering for Larry King!!! She was lost and over-reacting in many occasions. This could affect this fine show that many of us love.

im a man but letting a man cheat? it just ruins the order of nature! cheat first. get caught then forgive and forget.. and back to start. thats how it is!

Bonnie of Charlottesville, Virginia   August 4th, 2010 5:18 am ET

As an imperfect human being who has made mistakes and will speak Biblical truth despite her imperfections, Holly Hill's philosophy on monogamy is so anti-God, it is a shame. I guess she feels that women who stand firm to the importance of monogamy are holding on to old-fashioned beliefs. This is not a matter of just old-fashioned beliefs. It is a matter of what "thus saith the Lord": "Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery" (One of the ten commandments). Biblically speaking, the institution of marriage was established for the purpose of procreation, despite the fact that the institution of marriage for this purpose has been lessened in our society basically because of the sinful nature of man (which Holly seems to interpret as a MALE'S BIOLOGICAL NEEDS). The ways of man are different from the ways of God. Anything that is accepted as normal and "okay" by our society or culture usually goes against biblical standards; although man doesn't want to acknowledge this. Man, overall, generally wants the Bible to conform to his lifestyle instead of him conforming to biblical standards. Also, this conversation is one-sided because it appears that the woman is catering to the man's needs, and the woman's needs are being totally ignored. It's like allowing one with a child-like and immature mentality to have his way. Let's turn this conversation around. Miss Holly, should a man allow his wife to cheat to make his marriage stronger? Should a man negotiate with his wife to have a relationship outside of the marriage with another man? Should it be okay for women to have intimate relationships with men other than their husbands? Every man who cheats should ask himself, "Do I want my wife doing what I'm doing?" If his answer is "No", then he should evaluate himself. Putting the Bible aside, and from a worldly perspective, "what's good for the gander is good for the goose". Many men are selfish by nature when it comes to meeting their personal needs. Many of them think with their genitals rather than their brains. God gave us a brain for a reason: to think, to rationalize, to make choices as it pertains to "right and wrong". I'm not a male-basher by no means. I do believe that there are men who are totally committed to their marriages. I believe that the idea of "the family man" still exists in our society. Whatever happened to self-discipline in our lives? I believe infidelity is the number one cause of divorce and the breakdown of families in our culture. Reasons for getting a divorce are put on "other things", as excuses, when the bottom line is the "cry to cheat without getting caught, and the need for a spouse who will accept this cheating behavior," and yet, this same spouse who will accept the cheating behavior "dare not do this to me". We live in a society of mostly selfish individuals regardless of who it hurts. Sadly, our children are mostly affected by the results of infidelity and marriage breakups which lead to spouses lying on and about each other to cover up the truth of what really happened in the marriage. I have no sympathy for mistresses. A lot of this boils down to women respecting each other's space also. If a man is unhappy and you know that he is married, your conversation with him should direct him back to his wife. The mistress should ask herself, "If I was the wife, would I want this done to me?" So, there are many selfish, jealous, and competitive women in circulation who "act" regardless of who it hurts. If a mistress is in emotional pain and distress, she brought this on herself because she knew the man was married. I do realize that some men lie and say they are not married. If this is the case, you need to check him out. Do a background check, inquire, investigate, ask questions, etc., but mistresses seem to skip this step. Maybe because they don't care whether the man is married. Some women just want to see if they can take someone from someone else. It's almost as if some women get a "high" off of this.

Craig   August 4th, 2010 5:24 am ET

Hi Ladies,
I can assure you that Woman are only better in selling their innocence. I know of loads of working woman who are cheating their husbands..regularly. It is proven and logical that for every man that cheats...he needs a woman...any woman!

Nick   August 4th, 2010 5:44 am ET

Is monogamy killing marriage?

this is to funny to watch(joke) you got a blonde feminist that had a affair with gordon ramsey and now telling the world that having a affair is a GOOD thing.. come one.. i think shes living in her own imaginary world and not every man cheats on his girlfriend/wife.. even if he wanted to do it doesnt mean he will.. and the cheating level is different in pretty much every country

its even stupid to say that a affair is good for a marriage.
60 years ago people probally cheated but not at the same rate as nowadays. the reason that people cheat is because theres so much sex on tv. lets face it.. 60 years ago you dident even have a magazine with naked wimen!

rock ruelps   August 4th, 2010 5:51 am ET

All this trouble comes from a disease called one-itis (aka "love") that confuses the brain in a terrible way. Why do you usually marry somebody ? To take him/her off the reproduction market. Because you believe this is the only (fertile) person you can get happy with. That your genes fit like no others.
That's just laziness of imagination and will be severely punished these days. How can you possibly know what it is like to live with that person in the coming decades ? Come on. The old model for relationships is dated. (plx xcuse my English)

Oh, what a wonderful world when someone brags that they lie on the internet & even change their sex so, they can be popular online. How sad when people only want to live an imaginary life. Whatever happened to real communication.......I guess that died when the internet came to town. Now, we can pretend we are all so happy!!!

Gar   August 4th, 2010 11:17 am ET

I feel cheating is ok. I just wish more women were open to open relationships. It is sometimes hard to discuss with your partner about these things directly as society has put it as such a taboo. I personally feel having sex with others is a great way of making your marital bond stronger because at the end of the day you go home to your wife or husband. Cheating is fine provided it is safe and with someone that is also safe. And perhaps better for the other partner never to know who the other person is.

Men are wired differently, we need more sex, if we get sex we are happier and less moody, which wives appreciate.

I just watched Larry King Live with Fran Drescher, she would be outstanding as a Senator. I know many people who have had cancer whether they won the fight or lost. Fortunately, Ms. Drescher is a survivor and we need to stand by her because she is really getting it out there with her Cancer Shmancer movement with early detection. I have never in my life known a person with such a passion and life saving cause as Ms. Drescher.

Thank you, Ms. Drescher and keep up the life saving work you do and were meant to do.

Your Friend,

Thomas Royce

monogamy in my marriage is difficult. I enjoy available women.

I have no desire to expose anyone. I laugh at those posts. Why would I want to change that?

Shelley   August 4th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

OMG. :). So predictable. Most of your responses are religion-based. I understand. Most extremely religious people in this country are ignorant and ascribe to religion to give them some sort of meaning, control and comfort in their lives. Religion was invented as a means to control the populace. Hello all you ignorant people! At one point in history marriage was outlawed by religious leaders as a means of control! Dis most of you know that? Of course not. Religion is blinding and
has caused most wars throughout history. This is not a matter of religion. It is a matter of personal relationships. If an open marriage works – great. Lying and cheating on a spouse without their consent does not. It if a couple agrees to be realistic about human nature and not blinded by religion,and they make such an agreement, then it is perfectly acceptable. Why on earth wouldn't it be? It is very sad that most people are not educated and believe in the power of a mystical god but not in the power of themselves. So very, terribly sad.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I question Holly's perspective. Porn used to be recommended to couples to heal any "sexual misunderstandings" in their relationship. Today we are discovering how damaging it is not only to the relationship, but the addiction which causes sexual dysfunction. Since Holly "has a degree" (probably a bachelors) and wrote a book on sex and she's "cute", we the public give her automatic credibility. She is pushing the 50% divorce rate up. Yes, couple need to be honest with each other, however, sacrifice and restraint create emotional trust and fidelity. I am concerned that she mingles truth with lies. Marriage isn't about sex. It's about families and bonds. Loyalty and unconditional positive regard for the one you chose to unite through life with. I wouldn't recommend her or her book to ANYONE looking for a better marriage.
