Better than Big Bubba in the showers

Given his record for assaulting women, it seems strange that Mike Tyson should be seen as the star 'turn' in a legal brothel. The thrill of that earth moving moment must be reduced when one is concentrating on keeping one's ear lobes away from his grinding teeth.

I was taken in by his sheer masculinity in those days before the money ate into his brain. Regardless of how one saw boxing - as a sport or as an demeaning exhibition of brutality - he was a champion at what he did. Shame he threw it all away. His descent into rented stallion must be the end of any faint shred of admiration.
