Tiger Woods does not owe me an apology. He cheated on his wife, not me. I fail to see how he has wronged me. Politicians involved in sex scandals are a different story.
Infidelity, Monogamy, Polyamory.. OH MY. Why is it so damn hard to openly communicate in intimate relationships?
The term “sex addiction” is used to describe a pattern of frequent, progressive, and often secret sexual behavior, even when the behavior jeopardizes a person’s time, employment, financial stability, relationships, and reputation. While often conflated with adultery, sex addiction does not necessarily mean cheating—or even intercourse. Rather, it can manifest as a dependency on pornography, masturbation, phone or Internet sex, and other related behavior.
Coverage of a celebrity couple’s infidelity scandal is more than just a race for ratings – it is an opportunity to educate the public about the health risks and realities every couple faces when confronted with infidelity.
The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen pondered “Why is there no female Tiger Woods?.” After a bunch of ill-researched speculation, he concludes cheating and power are linked, and makes gross generalizations about women.
