A sex therapist said that she once gave former “Today Show” host Matt Lauer sex toys to save his marriage that was seemingly on the rocks, according to an exclusive interview with Inside Edition.
Dr. Laura Berman, a sex therapist and regular guest on The Today Show, admitted that she gave Lauer a bag of sex toys to “save his troubled marriage.” Berman said that Lauer originally came to her in the green room in 2007, ushering makeup artists out and asking her for advice on how to solve his marital struggles.
“He asked me about sexual aids and devices, he confided in me about some of the struggles that he was having in his married relationship,” Berman said, adding,”I brought him a shopping bag filled with toys for my line that were designed for couples and spicing things up.”
In retrospect, following sexual assault and harassment allegations against Lauer, “I’m sort of crestfallen if any of those toys were used to harass any colleagues or any women,” Berman said.
Berman’s remarks follow a resurfaced video which shows former Today Show host Meredith Vieira confronting Lauer about the bag of sex toys she found in his office while he was a guest on “The Meredith Vieira Show” in 2016.
Lauer was also accused of gifting a sex toy with a lewd message to an NBC staffer, Variety reported. Lauer was fired from his NBC gig Tuesday for sexual harassment allegations stemming from the 2014 Winter Olympics.
