WTF? Woman Sues Personal Trainer After He Ejaculates On Her During A Massage

Meanwhile, in News That Makes Me Want to Vomit, a woman is suing her personal trainer after he ejaculated on her during a massage. I repeat, her trainer ejaculated on her. I don’t think I could be more disgusted (well, unless it was happening to me, of course).
According to the court complaint obtained by The Huffington Post, the woman, Ashley Clevenger, accompanied her trainer, Gregory Darrell Davis, into a room designated and equipped for massages:
“Clevenger, of Johnson County, was lying on her stomach when she ‘felt something strange on her feet that did not feel like Davis’s hands,’ the complaint states. Clevenger claims that she immediately turned over to find the defendant ‘rubbing his exposed penis on her feet.’ Davis then ‘ejaculated on plaintiff’s feet,’ the complaint states.”
Yuck. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Ahh! I’m just as horrified and angry as I am grossed out that this happened to this woman. I can’t imagine how violated she must have felt, to experience blatant sexual harrassment in a place where she probably felt safe (her gym) with a person who she probably trusted (her trainer).
It’s especially sad to hear about this happening in a fitness context. Personal trainers should be trustworthy and motivational. I know mine is, but she’s also a woman and probably wouldn’t ever, uh, take it this far. Gyms should be a place where people feel safe about their bodies. Incidents like this, while obviously isolated, kind of hit home how vulnerable people (especially women) can truly be in fitness centers. And maybe it should hit home to Gold’s Gym (where this happened) that massages are probably something they should police. Just sayin’.
Our verdict: WTF? That guy is nasty. The HuffPo reports that Ashley Clevenger is seeking “damages for battery, vicarious liability, negligence, negligent hiring and supervision, and emotional and psychological suffering.” As she should! She deserves anything and everything she asks for.
I hope that scumbag trainer has long since been fired from his job and stripped of any certifications he may hold. I didn’t see any details about an apology from Gold’s Gym, but if that hasn’t happened yet, it’s certainly in order too.
Ugh, I’m still cringing…
