Man sues Bmw for a 20-month erection! Are motorcycles better than Viagra?

Article by Christian A., on May 2, 2012

BMW North America and a motorcycle-seat maker Corbin-Pacific are facing a lawsuit filed by Henry Wolf (a resident of California) for causing a persistent erection called priapism. Wolf, who is represented by his lawyer Vernon Bradley of Sausalito, is claiming that his condition, which has lasted over 20 months so far and still continuing, is the result of a four-hour round-trip ride on his 1993 BMW bike with a "ridge-like" seat.

The narrow "banana" bike seats have sometimes caused loss of sensation in this area for men and women but this is the first report of such a severe effect. This product liability lawsuit was filed in California Superior Court in San Francisco last Thursday. The matter was reported first by Courthouse News Service in California.

The “The Wolf v. BMW” lawsuit asserts that Wolf is still suffering from the erection condition ever since the September 2010 ride. An erection that’s longer than four hours is believed to already be a problem. Wolf also claims to have suffered emotional distress since he now can’t engage in sexual activity. Wolf is hoping to be compensated by BMW and Corbin for losing wages, his medical expenses, emotional distress and "general damage." [source: USAToday]
