In San Francisco, California, Henry Wolf filed suit against BMW North America and Corbin-Pacific, because the “ridged seat” of his 1993 BMW motorcycle caused a severe case of priapism, which is a long-lasting erection.
Wolf said he rode the motorcycle in San Francisco on a four-hour round trip on May 1, 2010 and claims he developed a two year erection afterwards.
Wolf's lawsuit says that he is "now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”
His lawsuit also claims wage losses, hospital expenses, general damage and emotional distress from his condition.
According to Reuters: 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.
