"She needs to get laid"

I'm watching The Practice. There's a scene where a woman comes on strong and a judge says, after she leaves, "That woman needs to get laid".

Why, I wonder, does this sort of comment get made at all, and when it does, always about a woman. Do we ever hear, after a man gets testy, for example, "That man needs to get laid"? Nooooo.
