US man suing BMW for 2-year erection

2012-05-01 10:29
 San Francisco - A San Francisco man is suing vehicle manufacturer BMW, alleging that one of the company’s motorbikes left him with a two year erection.

The Huffington Post reported on Monday that Henry Wolf filed a lawsuit claiming that he was “stricken with a severe case priapism - a persistent, long-lasting erection - after going for two back-to-back two hour rides on his 1993 BMW motorcycle.

Wolf claims that the long-lasting erection was caused by "the ridge-like seat on his motorcycle, negligently designed, manufactured and/or installed by [the] defendants." He has had the painful condition since the fateful day of the ride on May 1 2010.

In the suit, The Huffington Post writes, the US man says he "is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish". He is suing for personal injury, lost wages, product liability and emotional distress.
