A California man went for a four-hour motorcycle ride in September 2010. He's had an erection ever since.

Henry Wolf has filed a lawsuit against BMW North America and the motorcycle-seat supplier, claiming that the narrow seat caused his "severe" case of priapism, a condition considered a medical emergency when an erection lasts longer than six hours.

In the lawsuit, filed last Thursday in California Superior Court, Wolf alleges his condition has lasted for 20 months. He is seeking damages resulting from lost wages, emotional distress and general damage. He is also suing seatmaker Corbin-Pacific.

The lawsuit says the condition has left Wolf "unable to engage in sexual activity."

      perhaps you can just order the seat, modify it to make it last according to one's needs!

      Would have thought that he could have sexual activity whenever he wants.

      The lawsuit is from the makers of the little blue pill, for infringing on their patents.

      I'm confused. If he's had an erection lasting 20 months, why is he "unable to engage in sexual activity" ?

        Because he has carpel tunnel.

        His stuff is damaged now and probably in pain. After twenty months he probably can't get it up anymore.

      Lets see, after 6 hours it's considered a medical emergency, so this guy waits 20 months to say something about it? What, he wanted time enough to contact every woman he had every met in his life. Hey Mike (Corbin) ya just can't buy this kind advertising....BMW seat sales will be going up like this guys unit!!
