Man sues BMW for giving him permanent erection
LITIGANT of the Day is the Henry Wolf, of San Francisco, who is suing BMW of North America and Corbin-Pacific, makers of bike seats. Mr Wolf claims that following a four-hour ride on a 1993 BMW motorcycle sporting a Corbin-Pacific seat, he developed “a severe case of priapism”. Though carrying a permanently erect member, Mr Wolf says he is “unable to engage in sexual activity”.
The complaint states that on May 1, 2010:
“Plaintiff was riding his 1993 BMW motorcycle equipped with a Corbin-Pacific seat. The ride lasted approximately two hours each way to plaintiff’s destination, after which plaintiff developed a severe case of priapism (a persistent, lasting erection). Plaintiff alleges that this condition was caused by the ridge-like seat on his motorcycle, negligently designed, manufactured and/or installed by defendants. Plaintiff now suffers from priapism (a long lasting erection), and has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride. 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.”
Mr Wolf wants compensation.
