The Company You Keep

I love my girlfriends. They aren't afraid to discuss touchy subjects and will debate them with fearless abandon. From time to time we discuss important subjects via emails to "the group".
See below:

email #1

this was in the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) yesterday. ok, fess up,who's the penis breaker among you??? Miss you all!
*****Court Rules Woman Not Liable in Sex SuitBy MICHAEL KUNZELMANAssociated Press WriterBOSTON — A woman isn't legally responsible for injuries her boyfriendsuffered while they were having consensual sex more than a decade ago, astate appeals court ruled Monday.The man, identified only as John Doe in court papers, filed suit againstthe woman in 1997, claiming she was negligent when she suddenly changedpositions, landed awkwardly on him and fractured his penis.The man underwent emergency surgery in September 1994, "endured a painfuland lengthy recovery" and has suffered from sexual dysfunction that hasn'tresponded to medication or counseling, the appeals court said.Although the woman may have exposed her boyfriend to "some risk of harm,"the three-judge panel said her conduct during the sexual encounter wasn't"wanton or reckless" and can't support a lawsuit.The man's lawsuit already has been thrown out by judges in Salem DistrictCourt and Essex Superior Court.

So now I can get sued for being bad in bed? Great. Yet another thing to worry about. Thanks for the article. Very funny (and horrible). I'm so curious as to what "move" they were attempting. Do you think Jane Doe had to go to court all of these times? Yikes.
PS--Maybe JohnDoe's suit will disappear when he can keep a hard-on again.
