Rough Rider Injured In Motel Sex

There is a burning question that many corporate travellers frequenting motel rooms have often asked themselves: Does a sex accident that occurs in a motel while on a business trip count as a work accident?"

Finally we may be able to answer that age old question.

Across the ditch in Australia (also aptly known as "The Lucky Country") the Federal Court will soon rule if a public servant that was injured during a night of passion in a motel while on a work trip will be eligible for "work place" compensation.
"The federal government employee, who cannot be identified, was injured when a glass light fitting came away from the wall above the bed as she was having sex with a man in 2007.
The light struck her in the face, leaving her with injuries to her nose, mouth and a tooth, as well as "a consequent psychiatric injury".
Regardless of the court's decision, as a health and safety measure I will be spending today ensuring that all over bed light fixtures within easy reach are firmly affixed to the walls of my motel rooms.
