A barechested, pre-scandal Tiger Woods—wearing a skully and lifting weights, no less—gets the Annie Leibovitz cover photo treatment in the February 2010 Vanity Fair. The article essays the sports superstar's fall from grace and offers a few choice tidbits about his now-legendary reckless and "raw" womanizing:
Tiger’s story has been driven by sex, tons of it, in allegedly all different varieties: threesomes in which he greatly enjoyed girl-on-girl, and mild S&M (featuring hair-pulling and spanking); $60,000 pay-for-sex escort dates; a quickie against the side of a car in a church parking lot; a preference for porn stars and nightclub waitresses, virtually all of them with lips almost as thick as their very full breasts; drug-bolstered encounters designed to make him even more of a conquistador (Ambien, of all things); immature sex-text messages (“Send me something naughty ... Go to the bathroom and take [a picture],” “I will wear you out ... When was the last time you got [laid]?”); soulful confessions that he got married only for image and was bored with his wife; regular payments of between $5,000 and $10,000 each month to keep his harem quiet. It’s all there and more in what is the greatest single fall in popularity of a nonpolitician in [history].
Oh and just in case you didn't hear: FOX News' anchor Brit Hume says for Woods to truly recover from his sex and drugs addictions, Woods must abandon Buddhism because it does not have "the kind of forgiveness and redemption offered by the Christian faith." Hume tells Woods: "Turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world."
