In Australia they pay work comp benefits for injuries during sex on a business trip, really.

Australian court: Worker's comp covers sex mishap

Here is what the AP reports,

“CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - An Australian court has ruled that a bureaucrat who was injured while having sex on a business trip is eligible for worker's compensation benefits.

The Full Bench of the Federal Court ruled Dec. 13 in favor of the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, and rejecting the appeal of the federal government's insurer.

The woman was hospitalized after being injured in 2007 during sex with a male friend while staying in a motel in the town of Nowra, 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of her hometown of Sydney.

During the sex, a glass light fitting was torn from its mount above the bed and landed on her face, injuring her nose and mouth. She later suffered depression and was unable to continue working for the government.”

Okay, what do I think about this? I’m not touching this with a ten-foot pole… no way.
