The wealthy pay thousands to smash anything they want to reduce stress

Welcome to The Destruction Company - where wealthy youngsters pay big bucks to use weapons and tools to destroy objects such as computers and pianos.
The members-only club offers its rich clients the unique chance to smash anything they desire with any weapons they choose.
Members can pick from a list of objects to smash - including furniture, televisions, guitars, fax machines, motorcycles, lap tops and pottery.Bad day at work? Why not go smash a giant vase in Hoboken? The Destruction Company allows clients to smash anything they want with any weapon they want - for a priceBut the credit-crunch defying members can also request a particular item they want to destroy - including cars and pianos - which they pay to have brought in.

They are then given a choice of weapon including baseball bats, golf clubs, battle axes, sledgehammers, lump hammers, swords, and chainsaws.
The members then visit the club's warehouse and roof top space to don protective clothing and destroy the object bit by bit.
Based at a secret location in New Jersey the club has just opened and its membership is already swelling - mostly with young heirs and heiresses and wealthy bankers.
The club says 40 per cent of the membership are female - proving that women are also keen to let off stress with a weapon and inanimate object.A spokesman for the club said: 'Our message to our members is very clear: "It is okay to destroy things". This is not about violence, but the art of destruction.
'Many of our clients are high earning city workers. A lot of the inquiries we get by email have addresses ending with names such as Morgan Stanley.
'People can only join if an existing member invites them and we have them in for a session, to get to know them before deciding whether they can become a member.
'Only around 60 per cent of our membership is male, and we have many female clients. It all takes place in a controlled, safe environment.
'We have had some odd requests - someone wants to smash a Ferrari and one lady destroyed all her ex husband's suits.
'One common theme is technology such as computers, lap tops and iPads - there seems to be a desire out there to smash them.
