The divorce comes after a long, sordid foray into the golf star’s supposed “sex addiction” and scandal that rocked Wood’s successful golf career. After a Thanksgiving holiday auto crash clued the public in to Tiger’s home strife, more than a dozen women came forward claiming they’d had sex with the golfing phenom, including Rachel Uchitel, who reportedly told a friend: “But he was in love with me. I hope he remembers that was real, and reaches out to me.” A little time for the ink to dry on the documents, Rachel? Sheesh.
Elsewhere, other life forms not prone to golf may be taking a cue from Tiger and adapting to non-monogamy in some interesting ways, as scientists are puzzled as to why over 130 bird species engage in casual and homosexual sex.
Geoff MacFarlane, a biologist with the University of Newcastle in Australia, starting digging around to get at the root of the promiscuous parrots’ sex lives after research determined that male and female homosexuality is common in certain species. MacFarlane discovered that a bird parent left without responsibilities of raising young was free to run off and mate with the neighbors.
Avian swinger parties may even be adaptive behavior, but having more sexual partners of mixed genders might actually help birds defend territories, get extra babysitters, or advance their social standing in the flock. Would the technical term for that be Polly (want a cracker) amorous?
Back on the human side of the evolutionary scale, the next step in erotic bedroom furniture has arrived. Priced at a staggering $86,000, “The Indecent Bed” has already been featured in a number of celebrity photo shoots, and has seen its covers graced with the likes of Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Pamela Anderson.
The “indecent” part comes, not from the whopping price tag, but rather, a personalized design stitched into the headboard, that at first glance, appears to be a simple mosaic, but upon further examination, turns out to be a couple in the throes of passion. But eighty-grand for a headboard with a dirty picture? For that much money, we’d expect the thing to at least vibrate.
