 David Eigen, Phd -  "Men-The Gods of Love "
Tiger Woods mistress and porn star Joslyn James did as advertised and posted over 100 sexy text messages Tiger Woods allegedly sent her on her website earlier today. The topics? Choking, threesomes, golden showers, etc. Standard fare for Tiger Woods. We're starting to get an idea of why Elin Woods is supposedly so irate over Tiger's dalliances with Joslyn James, even though he had a dozen other mistresses. Our guest is an expert on relationships and author of  "Women - The Goddesses of Wisdom: The Journey of Womanhood"  and  "Men-The Gods of Love " and has written extensively about Tiger Woods and his problems. Recently David Eigen said - " There is much confusion about sex addiction and whether it really exists, especially considering it is a proper biological function that usually is pleasurable. For men, it is much more than a mere biological function. Sex is a large part of life for men, they are taught, “big boys don’t cry, suck it up, be a man, don’t show weak feelings.” Sex is the only real way men are allowed to feel and express anything other than anger. Sex, we men are taught, is what quells the loneliness and fills the inner void. It is the tenderness we crave inside, the intimate vulnerability. To need all this is disallow for men. So get it up and get it on! Sex is also taught as the measure of the man. This can be true for women too, but it is usually not as overwhelming a measure."

But did you know that nearly 900 million people in the world do not have access to safe, clean water? Not to mention that nearly half of those people are children. That’s why UNICEF is continuing to help provide safe drinking water to children around the world with their annual Tap Project, a call to action inviting Americans to pay $1 for a glass of tap water that they would normally enjoy for free. For every dollar raised, a child will have clean drinking water for 40 days. In 2009 alone, more than 1,500 restaurants from 40 states and more than 3100 volunteers participated, making it the largest volunteer mobilization effort for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, and giving millions of children water in nations with the greatest need. Haiti was one.
