Peter Cousins and Dawn Reed were just two British people working as chefs at a Nevada ranch when they decided to have sex at a hot spring like you do. Little did they know, they’d end up being charged with a $250,000 medical bill for it.
Peter Cousins, 55, was travelling the world with his partner Dawn Reed when they stopped to work on a cowboy ranch in the middle of the desert. The pair had been trekking and were miles from civilization when they came across the beautiful natural hot spring and decided to have an outdoor tryst.
Cousins, 55, soon had a heart attack. Reed ran three miles for help before she found a truck driver with a satellite phone. Mr Cousins was hospitalized via airlift where he underwent a life-saving operation and received a stent in his heart during treatment. After five days in the hospital, the artist, who did not have any travel insurance, was in for another shock when he was saddled with a staggering $250,000 medical bill bill. “It was the most expensive sex ever,” he says, according to the Daily Mail.
If that wasn’t bad enough, he was forced to return home and broke up with Dawn, who remained in the US to work.
Despite his misfortune, Mr Cousins from Dorset, UK, insists his outdoor quickie was worth it.
‘It was the most expensive sex ever,’ he added. ‘I haven’t been able to pay it off and although it’s always at the back of my mind, I have no regrets.
‘Yes, I will never be able to forget that I owe so much money, but it was worth it for the sex. It’s always worth it.’
Unable to pay the bill, Mr Cousins traveled back to the UK for further treatment while Dawn stayed on the ranch, and the couple split in October 2014, but remain friends. Mr Cousins is still negotiating with the hospital over the bill. He added: ‘I’m just really hoping I will be able to get the debt wiped because it will affect my future. ‘If the hospital decide I do have to pay back the full amount, I’ll never be able to go to America again. That will hurt.
I am not sure of what the lesson is in this story? Don’t have fun? I guess that’s it.
