An AC Milan soccer player is injured from having too much sex -- at least according to his girlfriend. Actress and model Melissa Satta divulged this raunchy detail about her beau Kevin Prince-Boateng to Vanity Fair.
Satta says Boateng is often on the club's injury list because of their active night life. She claims they have sex around 7-10 times a week.
The soccer club issued a statement detailing Boateng's medical woes. He did have an injury during the team's latest match-up against Inter. Boateng had a "muscular lesion in his left thigh." He is expected to return to the field in about four weeks if all goes well.
Now, you may be wondering right about now if you could conceivably take time off for a sex-related injury.
Employers often allow employees to take several paid vacation days a year. Others will allow employees to go ahead and take days off for personal reasons.
Ultimately it's up to you if you want to take time off. But just realize it might rub your employer the wrong way if and when they find out the truth. Your employer may have specific work policies in place. They may only let you take valid sick days if you can provide documentation.
And many U.S. employees are "at will." This means that employers can fire employees for whatever reason they wish so long as it isn't illegal.
So will you get in trouble if you take off too many days for your sex-related injury? It's possible.
And unlike the soccer player injured from sex, most workers don't rely on their body parts that much. A sore leg won't really stop you from typing up a storm on your computer. And who knows. Maybe Kevin Prince-Boateng is facing some criticism of his own from his club's owners.
