Henry Wolf, a 52-year-old motorcycle enthusiast from California, enjoyed a four hour ride on his 1993 BMW motorcycle back in May 2010, only to discover that once the trek was over, he had an erection that wouldn’t subside, a medical condition known as priapism. Wolf claims his stiffy was caused by the bike’s seat rubbing up against his junk during the ride, and because of this, and the resulting priapism, he is now impotent.
As a means of recourse, Wolf has decided to sue BMW and the seat maker, Corbin-Pacific, for an amount in excess of $25,000 for general negligence and liability, as well as reimbursement for lost wages, hospital and medical expenses, and general damage.

According to the lawsuit, Wolf claims his injury was caused by the “ridge-like seat on his motorcycle” which he claims was “negligently designed, manufactured and/or installed by the defendants.”
Wolf claims he’s suffered from the long lasting erections for 20-months after the injury occurred.
“He is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish,” the lawsuit claims.
Wolf is suing BMW North America, the maker of the motorcycle, and Corbin-Pacific Inc, the maker of the motorcycle seat. The lawsuit was filed on April 26 in San Francisco Superior Court in California, requesting a jury trial.
On the flip side, maybe BMW can market their motorcycles as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. Sure it’s a tad more expensive than those little blue pills, but it’s also way cooler.
