A woman who enjoyed an evening of Ann Summers partying and sex toys frivolities had her fun cut short when she was injured while trying to grab her prize. Dublin resident Sylvia Deehan, 46, alleged that she was shoved into a speaker when ‘a ring that goes around a certain part of a man’ was thrown into the air.
The Ann Summers party took place at the Lough Inn, owned by Loughlinstown Inn Ltd. The evening’s climax was a performance of the male stripper group, Hunks of Desire.
Ms Deehan’s sworn testimony states that she was bursting balloons on the floor, with 62 other women (at least) in sight, when she went to catch the spot prize. She claims she was pushed from behind and hit a speaker next to the DJ box, injuring her ribs.
The court judge ruled there was no way for the pub to make the location completely accident-proof, and that the Lough Inn had in fact placed the loudspeaker in a safe place.
he added: “…the truth is that Ms Deehan could have fallen anywhere in the pub and the only means of effectively guarding against the risk of such a fall would have been to swaddle every available surface in the pub in protective material.”
Ms Deehan therefore lost her legal fight for compensation.
Moral of the story? Not exactly sure, other than to safeguard against random thrusts when attempting to grab a sexy prize or two.
