Teenage Whore and the NFL Star: A Recipe for Trouble

Women just throw sex at star athletes like Lawrence Taylor. He can have all of it he can handle - with women of no certain age. For star athletes are like rock stars, chick magnets for the groupies, the hangers-on and the sycophants.

So buy sex?  Why would Taylor when he could find sexual healing for free?

Yet that's what he is accused of -- and more. Taylor, 51, is facing multiple felony charges that could send him to prison. And if he's guilty as accused, he deserves a cell next to O.J. Simpson's.

Now, I can't get too self-righteous as to question Taylor's visiting a prostitute. Friends of mine have gone that route, and they never have been accused of anything so unseemly. Besides, getting inside a woman who practices the world's oldest profession isn't the crime of the century, is it? Hell, it ain't the crime of the day.

It might be worth noting that the "prostitute" was 16, an age where she couldn't consent to sex. Taylor should no more be having relations with a teenage girl than he should be smoking crack.

Neither is a good bargain.

I hope the allegations leveled against Taylor, a pitchman for a weight-loss regimen, are just that, allegations. I would like to think he had the common sense not to stoop to spending money on forbidden sex, as alluring as the sex might be to some men.
