I've been thinking... There are men out there who do not cheat on their partners/wives. But there are plenty of men who do. Especially men who are public figures... celebrities and politicians.
Worse still... Tiger has a "wholesome talented young sportsman and married with kids" Image to live up to. Plus his wife is gorgeous... looks wise, she's in a much higher league than he's in.
But I have 3 main questions about this:
1. Are public figures especially vulnerable to cheating because they're in the limelight all the time, so women throw themselves at these men? Thus making it humanly impossible for them to resist it when sex is dangled in front of them everywhere they go?
2. Is there something about fame and power that makes one feel entitled to be free and not tied down with 'rules' like normal mortals?
3. Is there something about the personality type that commands fame or power that also makes one likely to cheat?
I think most men (and women too) seek novelty and variety when it comes to sex.
Attracting women is probably one of the most significant ways through which men are able to validate their masculinity and sense of self worth. For some men this stage of life is short, and by their early 30’s they snap out of it, while other men just remain non-committal and non-monogamous for as long as their cocks will stand. Thus, no matter how wonderful their girlfriend or wife is going to be, they will not stop pursuing new interactions with women and new sexual experiences.
You would think that the fear of disease, public humiliation, hurting your wife, damaging your children, and undermining your life’s achievements would be a deterrent to men who cheat. But I guess it's not!
* Striked "Monkey Face" off because readers just looked at that phrase and deemed it to be Racist.
With regards to saying "Monkey Face" when talking about Tiger looking unattractive to me.... it was not meant as a Racist remark or insinuating that African American/Ethnic/ coloured people look like apes. If he looked like a weasel, I would have said Weasel Face. But I find that resembles a monkey ( not a weasel or dolphin or turd), hence the term monkey face. Nothing to do with his ethnicity or race.
Anyways.... they managed to patch him up. :)
