$45,000?!

That’s how much a Michigan couple was ordered by a judge to pay after they threw out their son’s prized porn collection.

If you remember back a couple years ago, we brought you the story of an Indiana man (now identified as 43-year old David Werking) who was suing his parents over a $29,000 porn stash.

According to the complaint, Werking moved back in with his parents after a divorce (gotta think that ex-wife is counting her blessings right now) and was doing chores in return for rent. But when he moved out, instead of shipping all of his belongings back to him, Werking’s parents trashed TWELVE BOXES of his porn.

In an email to his horny son, Werking’s dad wrote:

“Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff.”

Werking originally estimated the collection of movies, magazines and “other items” to be valued at $29,000, but he requested TRIPLE that amount as punishment for tossing such classics as “Big Bad Grannys” and “Frisky Business.”

I’m not yanking your chain here folks – totally serious.

Werking’s attorney called the actions of his parents “wanton destruction of property” (which might also be the name of one of the porn vids that was trashed, who knows).

But anyway, flash forward to late last year and a federal judge in Michigan ACTUALLY sided with Werking, finding that the parents would have to pay damages for throwing out their son’s spank bank.

The judge delayed ruling on the damages at the time while everybody tried to figure out just how much this collection was actually worth.

Well, the parents hired a pornography valuation expert to help come up with a value of the movies. Yes, you read that right – a pornography valuation expert. For some reason I never heard about that job at career day.

The collection was eventually valued at $30,441.54, according to the expert, Dr. Victoria Hartmann. (The expert is a DOCTOR? What university is offering a PhD in pornography valuation?).

This dude must have had the holy grail of porn somewhere in that stash. Whoever the Picasso is of porn, that must be who made these videos.

And was this collection on VHS? DVD? Did he have the world’s biggest stash of Blu-Ray porn? I have so many questions.

In fact, there were even 107 titles in the collection that the expert was unable to put a value on. (I mean, who can really put a price on something that’s available for free all over the internet?)

Ultimately, the judge came down on the parents to the tune of $45,000, which included the $30,441.54 for the porn collection and $14,519.82 to be paid to their son’s attorney.

Maybe now instead of keeping his collection in hard copy format, Werking can use that money to just buy a subscription to… you know what, never mind.

There’s no word on whether Werking is still single (though I have a guess), but ladies, if you’re looking for a guy with some extra cash in his pocket you know where to find him.

Although with a collection like that it seems like he doesn’t even really need a lady anyway. I’m sure he’s got things well in hand.
