  • Wall Street trader sues stripper for heel in face injury

    A Wall Street trader is suing after allegedly being hit in the face by a stripper’s heel, while she performed a lap dance for him.

    Some might say he simply got his comeuppance, but Stephen Chang, a securities trader in New York, has filed court papers to the Manhattan Supreme Court claiming he ‘sustained personal injuries’ when he visited the Hot Lap Dance Club near Madison Square Garden last year.

    The lawsuit against the strip club reads: ‘During the course of said lap dance, the employee suddenly swung around, striking [Mr Chang] in the eye with the heel of her shoe.’

    Chang, a married man in his early 30s, went to the establishment which describes itself as the ‘Playboy Mansion of Manhattan party lofts’, alone. The club charges a $50 cover charge, a $10 joining fee and lap dances cost around $40.

    The club’s website claims: ‘The dancers are not only exceptionally attractive with killer bodies, but they also have good personalities, are friendly and sensual, and are intelligent and can carry on a conversation.’

    We don’t suppose Mr Chang will put himself in such grave danger again any time soon…
