http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...41088720120501A California motorcyclist's lawsuit claims a bike ride in 2010 took an unexpected turn that caused a prolonged erection for two years -- and counting.
Henry Wolf blames the after-market "ridge-like seat" on his 1993 BMW motorcycle for causing his "severe case of priapism (a persistent lasting erection)," according to the lawsuit filed in state court in San Francisco and obtained by Courthouse News Service.
A four-hour ride on the motorcycle seat, designed and manufactured by Corbin-Pacific Inc., caused Wolf's condition, his lawsuit asserts. But medical experts aren't so certain.
One urologist told Detroit's WWJ radio there's no data to support Henry Wolf's motorcycle-seat erection claim. A ridge-like seat could, however, compress the neurovascular supply to a person's genitals and cause "prolonged numbness," the doctor said.
By contrast, Henry Wolf's lawsuit claims he "has been experiencing continuing problems" since his 2010 bike ride.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-erection.htmlWolf reportedly fitted his bike with an after-market seat to make his motorcycle rides more comfortable, according to CBS.
But instead of the ease he was hoping for, Wolf has been plagued by the distressing condition ever since.
‘[The] Plaintiff now suffers from priapism (a long lasting erection), and has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride,' the suit alleges.
‘He is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.
‘Plaintiff is distraught and distressed because of this. Defendants, and each of them, are liable to plaintiff due [to] their negligent design, manufacture and/or installation of the seat on plaintiff’s motorcycle.’
