Porn collector sues parents for binning $25k of his ‘worst of the worst’ smut

A 42-year-old man has sued his parents for binning his pricey porn and sex toy collection.

Beth and Paul Werking have been told by a judge that they must compensate their son David for throwing out his X-rated possessions he valued at $25,000 or £19,000.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled on December 10 that the Michigan couple must hand their son a yet-to-be-determined lump sum, to replace the rare “trove of pornography” and “array of sex toys.”

In their defence the couple explained that they told David not to bring with him his collection when he moved in after a divorce in late 2016.

The judge said: “This defense fails on both the facts and on the law. Plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment.”

It was not until their son moved out again in 2017 for Indiana, that his pornographic memorabilia went missing.

According to the lawsuit, Mr and Mrs Werking admitted dumping dozens of boxes worth when probed on their whereabouts.

His dad said over email: “Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff,” his dad said in an email.

Werking fired back: “You don’t have to take someone else’s stuff, and I would like it back, along with the sex toys… [and] 1 long container of smutty magazines.”

His parents also kept some of the porn — described as the “worst of the worst” — in a safety-deposit box because they feared it might be illegal, according to court papers.

Werking’s lawyer Miles Greengard said: “This was a collection of often irreplaceable items and property,” mlive.com reports.

Judge Maloney wrote in the judgement: “In this case, there is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property.

"Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property, and they do not dispute that they destroyed the property.”

Werking and his parents now have until mid-February to file written submissions outlining damages.
