Man Gets $3 Million for Having a Threesome, but Here’s the Bad News

The good news: A 31-year-old man Georgia got to have a threesome. The bad news: It killed him. The good news: It won him $3 million. The bad news: It's not clear who gets the money. Confused yet? Just in case you still had any doubts whatsoever that our jury system can be a tad, shall we say, ASININE, at times, here comes the case of the young husband and father of two who had a threesome with a friend (either male or female depending on which report you believe) and a woman -- who wasn't his wife. He then died of a heart attack from all the excitement. So his estate sued his cardiologist for not properly warning him about the dangers of threesomes. Of course, all of this could have been avoided if the guy had read just one of those articles about how cheating on your wife can kill you.

Okay, we don't know if the guy was cheating. Maybe the wife was all for her husband's threesome with two people who weren't her. It happens. Anyway, the guy, William Martinez, died a day before he was due to have a heart stress test. He was set to have the test because of chest and arm pain he'd had the week before. The doctor he saw set up the test, but failed to warn him not to participate in any orgies before his next appointment. The doc probably assumed the guy would take it easy for a least a week. Watch some TV. Spend some time with the kids. Have a leisurely dinner with the wife. But nooooooo. Dude had a very active sex life and wasn't about to let a few chest pains get in the way of his threesome. Can you blame him?

Anyway, a jury agreed that the guy should have been warned by his doctor, because they awarded his estate the 3 million buckaroos. It's not clear yet who gets the money, but since it is his estate that gets the award, that would be his wife and kids unless he has a will saying otherwise.

Let this be a lesson to us all: No threesomes if you're due for a heart stress test! Although I guess this could be a really sneaky way of making your beneficiaries rich -- provided you're ready to go out with a smile on.

Do you think doctors should warn you about the stress of threesomes?

They probably should warn you... I didnt know that a threesome could literally kill you.

On a side note; if this guy was supposedly having heart problems why would he have participated in heart rate raising activities? Or perhaps he assumed he was going to die and decided to go out with a bang? It just seems a little strange...

I'm sure the Dr did tell him no strenuous activities ... apparently he didn't think much of all that extra excitement... i dnt see how they won that just because Dr didn't specify 3sums.. or did he/she..?.. the dead Guy obviously can't tell us what he was told not to do...

Hmmmm...pretty sure it's standard procedure to tell someone suspected of having a heart condition to take it easy until the tests can confirm/deny the condition to take it easy until the test. Just how on earth did they lawyers "prove" the doctor did not specify that sex was off the schedule? Did he bother to tell his doctor that he had a very active robust sex life? Funny how not being completely 100% honest with your doctor can come back and bite you in the @ss!

Ugh, this type of thing makes me sick.  Who is the person beind the lawsuit anyways?  His wife?  Seems like they're a couple of stand up people, I'm so glad they have kids, I'm sure they will be every bit the benefit to society that their parents have been.

How do  they know he wasn't warned?  He's dead - he can't testify.

Any idiot knows if you're having chest pains you don't exert yourself.

This is why aspirin costs $6 in the hospital.

I'm really not sure what my response would be if a dr told me not to have any 3somes, errr thanks maybe??

pretty big assumption for a dr to have to make

Oh. My. Hell. I have heard it all now
