Controversy Surrounding Melissa Gorga’s Book, Advocating Marital Rape?


There is huge new controversy surrounding Melissa Gorga’s book, Love Italian Style. While Melissa is the author, it is a passage that Joe Gorga wrote that has sparked rumors the Gorgas are promoting marital rape. The website Jezebel shares the controversial paragraph. “Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken. But trust me, she is. Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while,” Joe writes. “If your wife says ‘no,’ turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated. Women don’t realize how easy men are. Just give us what we want.”

“In the beginning, Joe wanted to have sex every single day, at least once, if not twice or three times…” Melissa writes. “If I didn’t give it to him once a day, he’d get upset. I can do something that pisses him off on a Monday, but if we had sex on Sunday night, it blows over more easily. But if we haven’t done it for two days and I give him attitude? It could be a huge fight.”

Melissa goes on to say in the book how women should strive to be sexy for their husbands and always make sure the housework is done. “A happy marriage is one in which a wife gives her husband everything he wants, regardless of its impact on her. And if he doesn’t get everything he wants, it will be no one’s fault but hers if he throws a violent temper tantrum or strays.”
