Travelogue: Australia – In The News

This blog entry deals with topics of an adult nature! – You have been warned.

This news story was to odd to have missed my attention: Injuries sustained during wild, passionate sex are covered in Australia as under worker’s compensation!

According to the story that was just on the morning news, a woman – who just happened to be on a business trip at the time – took a man back to her hotel room and then engaged in what could euphemistically be called an “energetic” evening. During the festivities, a lighting fixture was knocked off the wall, fell, hit her in the face, and left a scar.

She filed the medical expenses under worker’s comp and was initially turned down. She challenged, and this week – in a move sure to create gales of juvenile titters in workplaces all over Oz today – ruled that sex, even wild and energetic sex is no different than a chat around the water cooler in the office.

The woman was in the hotel because she was out-of-town on a business trip, the employer had had her travel to that place on business. It was covered!

God, you gotta love the courts! (Though, I have to say… I definitely agree with their logic.) who but a judge would think to equate “doin’ the dirty” with chatting with mates around the water cooler? Ah! That paints pictures in my head that surely should not be there!

Wherever you are today, I hope you will be careful “around the water cooler” – if you catch my drift! ;-)
