LONDON (Reuters) - A devout Christian who said an accident at work boosted his libido and wrecked his marriage as he turned to prostitutes and pornography was awarded more than 3 million pounds ($5.89 million) in damages Tuesday.

Stephen Tame, 29, from Suffolk, suffered severe head injuries in a fall, transforming him from a loyal newlywed into a "disinhibited" character who had two affairs.

He was in a coma for two months after falling from a gantry while working at a bicycle warehouse shortly after his marriage in January 2002. Doctors said it was a miracle he survived.

Awarding him 3.1 million pounds in compensation at London's High Court, Judge Michael Harris said: "His life and the life of his young wife were shattered."

His former employer, Professional Cycle Marketing, of Essex, had argued through their lawyers that his injuries were not as bad as suggested in court.


That is almost $6 million. What a great judge to hear the case.

"So you've hit your head and now you're addicted to prostitutes and pornography? That's too bad, and sounds really expensive. Here's a large bag of money."

Not really. I mean, if it's English porn, it's probably not that good anyway.

Now, if you are talking about Mediterranean women...

(so long as you provide the razor and wash cloth.)

Damn!!!! And I thought this was a great country!!!

I have no doubt that his wife decided to forgive him for his indiscretion.
And they lived happily ever after. I just love those happy endings!!

Don't forget the important second step...porn and prostitutes!

With my luck I'd fall, hit my head and then forget why I fell in the first place.

Interestingly enough, the opposite effect occurs if you fall on your other "head."

Guy was in a coma for two months and his employer tried to argue that his injuries were exaggerated? I think that has more to do with the high award than the sex thing.

There is a lot more to this story than what is reported.

Is it even possible to spend $6 mm on prostitutes and porn? What kind of porn are we talking about here?
