Teed off: Model sues Playboy for using her bottom as sporting equipment

What do you get by adding a Playboy model, a photo shoot and an inconveniently-placed golf tee together? A whole-lotta pain and a $500,000 lawsuit, of course.

Model Liz Dickson is suing Playboy Enterprises after a golf-themed photo shoot went horribly wrong, Gawker reports.

Dickson, was asked to pose with her buttocks partially exposed for the 2012 Playboy Golf Finals at the Ike golf course in City of Industry, Calif., last March.

The Playboy model had to lie on her stomach and insert a golf tee between the cheeks of her buttocks, according to CBS. A golf ball was placed on top. Nothing Dickson couldn’t handle.

The idea was to get a photo of a man seemingly teeing off Dickson’s behind.

Perhaps Kevin Klein, the man posing in the photo with Dickson, missed the memo. He was supposed to just pose with the golf club aimed at the ball on her body. Instead, he took a swing and, oh yes, missed. Ouch!

He wasn’t even supposed to swing the golf club when the photographers told him to "pose.”

According to Gawker, “the whole experience ended up being a tremendous pain in the ass.” The lawsuit alleges Klein “swung the golf club and struck the plaintiff on the buttocks causing her injuries and damages.” Working for Playboy, she better not let Hugh Hefner see those bruises; she’ll be bumped off the calendar rotation in no time!

Dickson suffered severe bodily injuries, some of them permanent, The Wrap says. She is asking for a hefty $500,000 plus medical and related expenses, punitive damages and costs of the lawsuit.
