Not sure this is front page news, so here you go:

TL;DR: a German water park has banned women from riding one of their slides (presumably a speed slide) because of unfortunate injuries to lady parts.

I'm fairly certain that this is the first time I've heard of such a thing. Given the number of slides in operation with high-speed run-outs, it's surprising that this is the first time that such an issue has been brought up.

I'm thinking this is a Thorpe Park-esque publicity grab.

I'm not seeing how "female parts" could be injured, but not "male parts." Of course, when "male parts" get injured, the usual result is that it ends up being shown on America's Funniest Videos.

The Travel Channel had a show about extreme water parks a week or so ago that was on in the background while I was working. They showed some female guests putting on a leather brief before riding one of the parks' slides. At least that is what I remember seeing for how much I was paying attention. Seemed more like a gimmick than anything else.

Are you sure you had it on the Travel Channel. That sounds more like late night pay-per-view.

Back in 1999 an attorney represented two girls who sustained vaginal injuries while riding one of the speed slides at Knoebels. I don't know what ever came of the lawsuit, but these types of lady injuries aren't unheard of in the industry.

I'd love to see Robert Vaughn doing the commercial for the law firm who specializes in that type of injury.
