CONNECTICUT: A former model who posed nude for Playgirl as a lumberjack 18-years ago apparently didn’t like it when fellow co-workers shouted ‘timber’ at him. Daniel Sawka is suing his recent employer for harassment after co-workers taunted him about having posed for the magazine. In his suit Sawka claims the harassment started a month after he was hired when his co-workers found the nude photos online by Googling his name.
The Playgirl shoot shows Sawka posing suggestively with an axe, as well as has several pictures featuring his fully nude form.
The buffed lumberjack turned manager is seeking back pay, front pay, bonuses, personal days, lost pension and retirement benefits, costs, and damages for emotional distress for the lawsuit.
Mr. Swanka’s case would draw more sympathy if somehow private pictures of his private man parts had been uncovered and brought to light. But if one voluntarily poses for a nude magazine, some amount of teasing is to be expected. He may have wanted to forget about swinging his ax but Google never forgets.
