Stephen Hawking Over the Moon About Sex Club? Cambridge admits astrophysicist visited Southern California hot spot By Mary Papenfuss, Newser Staff Posted Feb 28, 2012 12:04 AM CST Updated Feb 28, 2012 12:40 AM CST 31 comments Comments Let's get physicist? (AP Photo/John Raoux. File) (Newser) – Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking doesn't only have his head in the stars. He's also a sex club fan, reports Radar. And now even Cambridge University is admitting it, notes the Daily Mail. The 70-year-old astro-philosopher has visited a Southern California swingers and sex club with his assistants and nurses. He paid for private shows with naked dancers at the Freedom Acres Club in Devore, a spot he has visited "more than a handful of times" in the last few years, says a source. "I've spoken to him on several occasions, and have shared drinks with people in his group," says the insider. Cambridge officials deny the wheelchair-bound Hawking is a "regular" at the high-flying club. The report is "greatly exaggerated. He visited once a few years ago with friends while on a visit to California," reads a university statement. Hawking has also been spotted at Stringfellow's Gentlemen's Club in London. Owner Peter Stringfellow says of all the celebrities he has met in his club, Hawking is "the man." Stringfellow adds: "I remember asking him if he’d like to have a conversation with me about the universe, or if he’d just like to watch the girls. The answer was quite simply: ‘The girls.’"
