A couple received a cash award after they filed a lawsuit complaining about their bad sex life, according to court proceedings in Italy.
The Tuscany court awarded 20,000 euros ($27,500) for the couple, whose sex life has been damaged after the woman was involved in a car accident.
The woman, who was not named, was hit by a car while crossing a street in a crosswalk. She still suffers from back pain and is unable to enjoy her sex life like she once had with her husband.
As a result, the judge order the driver’s car insurance company to pay the couple for their bad sex life. The insurance company argued that the middle-aged couple were too old to have such an active sex life in the first place.
The couple’s lawyer said that the couple’s relationship was damaged after the accident, not only their sex life, but also their everyday life. Outside the bedroom, they are no longer able to ride bikes together, play sports or travel together, he said.
