Hugh Hefner Says Tiger Woods Has No Sex Addiction
Back in early December, when the news of what exactly happened with Tiger Woods was still slowly curdling at the top of the milk carton, Hugh Hefner spoke up on Woods. He said, "I don't approve of (his behavior). I just was not surprised by it. The reason that I wasn't surprised is that he’s traveling the world. He's a handsome, young guy and beautiful ladies are throwing themselves at him. You never know the circumstances of a personal relationship or a marriage and how well it worked and I think that the immorality of infidelity is the lie. It isn't really the sex. It's the cheating."
Now, four months later, questions about Tiger are still being tossed Hefner's way, even at his own freaking birthday party. Last week in Las Vegas, someone asked the Playboy creator about Tiger and his sex addiction.
Hefner quickly cleared something up.
This whole idea that it's a sex addiction is a copout. Some people become obsessed with sex, but it's not like an alcohol or drug addiction. He did it because he could get away with it."
Now, I'm sure some people that have suffered through sex addiction would disagree (I distinctly remember this story on Deadspin about a guy that basically couldn't function without sex), but I have to side with Hefner on if Tiger has a problem.
The guy was famous and cocky (no pun intended), and wanted to live his life a certain way. That said, it wasn't like he was addicted to the sex, more so the lifestyle.
