What on earth could renowned physicist Stephen Hawking have in common with reality husband Donn Gunvalson? Both have been sighted at a California sex club.For the last half decade, the 70-year-old Hawking has been showing up to Freedom Acres, a swingers club in Devore, a source told Radar Online. For all you physics geeks, that's about an hour east of Caltech, which—silly us—is why we thought Hawking made the trek out to California from Cambridge in the first place.

But why go to Caltech when you could have this?

For your socializing pleasure there is a pool table, an oversized hot tub, dance floor with raised stage complete with a pole for dancing and many TV's throughout the club showing XXX movies.

"I have seen Steven Hawking at the club more than a handful of times," the source told Radar.

Don't worry, his staff is on hand to make sure nothing goes awry for Hawking, who has been paralyzed by Lou Gehrig's disease. The source says, "He arrives with an entourage of nurses and assistants. Last time I saw him he was in the back 'play area' laying on a bed fully clothed with two naked women gyrating all over him."

The source added, "But Stephen is by far the last person I ever expected to see in this club."

Um, yeah.
