Man sues BMW over two year erection

BMW /Rex

A US man is suing BMW after claiming a ride on one of its motorbikes gave him a permanent erection.

Californian Henry Wolf claims a four-hour trip on his BMW bike with a 'ridge-like seat' left him with a two-year erection.

His lawsuit says he "now is unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish".

Mr Wolf is suing BMW and seatmaker Corbin-Pacific for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and 'general damage'.

He puts his situation down to an extreme case of priapism - a condition in which the sufferer has a persistent and usually painful erection.
