"'Stud in the bedroom,' and 'whore in the bedroom,' those are timeworn adages"

After initially refusing to apologize for his sex advice tweets, New Jersey Senate candidate Phil Mitsch sounded a more contrite tone in a statement released early Thursday evening.

“I would like to sincerely apologize for any offense I may have caused anyone, particularly women, as a result of a Twitter post that has recently been reported,” Mitsch said.

He then explained the basis for the controversial tweet he posted Sept. 2 to his more than 44,000 followers: “Women, you increase your odds of keeping your men by being faithful, a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom.”
