Jedi Knights have sex after all, according to George Lucas, creator of the characters' hit sci-fi series Star Wars. Speculation that the lightsaber-wielding warriors were supposed to live a monk-like existence has been rife since details of Attack Of The Clones began to leak out. In the new flick Jedi Anakin Skywalker's character shares forbidden love with Queen Amidala, but Lucas says it's romance, rather than hanky panky, which is banned by the Jedi code. He says, "Jedi Knights aren't celibate - the thing that is forbidden is attachments - and possessive relationships." No Jedi Knight has yet been seen with a partner in any of the five Star Wars movies.
Way to go, George! Jedis are just like normal guys, just looking for a one-night stand. I can just picture them hanging around in cantinas, checking out the alien babes, with the following questions running through their minds:
1. Will my standard pickup line "Want to see what color my lightsager is" work on them?
2. Is one of them secretly my long-lost twin sister?
3. Can I use the Force to get her to say "yes"?
4. If I have to cut my arm off to get away from her in the morning, can I get a cybernetic replacement?
This also means that all of those user-geeks in the UK and Down Under who listed "Jedi" as their religion on the census still have a chance of getting laid
...who am I kidding? NO THEY DON'T!
