'Anguish of the two-year erection': Californian sues BMW for emotional distress after motorbike ride 'leaves him with priapism'

Lawsuit alleges that biker is "now unable to engage in sexual activity"

A Californian is reported to be suing BMW after a four-hour ride on a motorbike with a "ridge-like seat" left him an unrelenting erection which did not subside for two years.

Henry Wolf is seeking compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and "general damages" from the motoring manufacturer and seat-maker Corbin-Pacific.

He claims that a ride through San Francisco in May 2010 has left him suffering from permanent priapism.

The emotional distress lawsuit states that Wolf is “now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”

Filed in the California Superior Court, last Thursday, it is claimed that the “negligently designed” seat is responsible for triggering the condition.

It reads: “The ride lasted approximately two hours each way to Plaintiff's destination, after which Plaintiff developed a severe case of priapism.

“[The] plaintiff alleges that this condition was caused by the ridge-like seat on his motorcycle, negligently designed, manufactured and/or installed by defendants.”

According to CBS, Wolf later fitted his 1993 BMW bike with a separately-purchased seat to make travelling more comfortable. However, Wolf claims that the agonising condition has continued, leaving him “distraught and distressed”.

“[The] Plaintiff now suffers from priapism, and has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride,” the litigation continues.

“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.”

Ongoing penile erections for more than four hours are generally considered as qualifying as priapism.

The condition is considered a medical emergency, which should receive proper treatment.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
