Why would Tiger want to be "cured"? The dude can get all the sex action he wants cause he's super rich, so just let him have fun!

Sex addiction? How stupid. A dozen women on the side over 10 or so years is not unusual for a man of Tiger's wealth and fame. In fact, I'd be surprised if it wasn't a good bit more. I know I easily nailed at least 2 per year (or they nailed me) over any 10 year period before I turned 40. And I didn't have nearly the money or the power that a Tiger Woods has.

Tiger's only problem is that someone should have told him, before he got married, that infidelity in his position could cost him multi-millions. Maybe someone did, who knows? He knows now!

Going to a "Sex Re-hab" clinic will only help with hypocritical Christians and nutty sex prudes. For these groups, sex is "bad", and having to fight the "addiction" of it is a twisted way to justify their twisted views on sex.

It will allow Tiger to keep "some" of the press and the lynch mob off of him and get "some" sympathy.

It also allows him to have an excuse, if he ever gets caught again in the distant future. "It is not my fault, it is an addiction."

As any sexually active man with even a hint of playboy in him knows, it was very easy to do what Tiger did with than number of women. Guys have had sex with as many women, and way less money.

For it to be a real sexual addiction, it has to be interfering with other elements of his life and make him dysfunctional in other ways. Tiger on the other hand, is a master at golf and making money. He took care of his other responsibilities, it is just that he liked sex a lot too.

Because Tiger was traveling to so many places all over the world, to have access to sex regularly, he needs several women. He needed women that he could depend on to be at a certain location, where he happened to be at, when he called and give him sex. When you understand Tiger's lifestyle, the number of women are understandable, in that context.

line of beautiful females, who will service him.

beautiful? depends on what you see as beautiful and apparently that is very hideous under the paints. they are 'servicing' his fame and fortune. i don't see any beauty in that at all. i see predators under rocks. slimy, evil, and hideous. keep in mind, they knew he was married with children. that is not beauty so this tiger got a bunch of poop is all he got.
