A California man has sued BMW North America and a motorcycle-seat maker claiming that a four-hour round-trip ride on his 1993 BMW bike with a “ridge-like” seat gave him “a severe case of priapism (a persistent, lasting erection)” that’s lasted 20 months and counting.
The lawsuit for emotional distress says [plaintiff] is “now is unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”….According to the lawsuit, [plaintiff] wants compensation from BMW and Corbin for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and “general damage.” — USAToday
Helluva strategy to launch your career as a porn model, innit? I imagine he’s fielding offers to share even his X-Rays, at this point.
Has Guinness been contacted yet? Is a 20 month hard-on a record?
No doubt Corbin-Pacific (the seat maker) has taken steps to ramp up production of this particular model, confident that the aging population of motorcycle riders will grab at this heaven-sent device for one last (but long-lasting) rodeo romp. In fact, I see new cycle designs on the horizon, all sporting multiple seats. Suggested name: “The Godsend.”
“Twenty months and counting.” Twenty minutes would be a nice treat for most of these old-timers.
Another advantage: this guy can get as drunk as he pleases and never fear rolling out of bed.
He can also have breakfast without getting off his bike — coffee in one hand, bagel(s) conveniently stacked.
You get the, um, point. Share your best takes in the comments, below.
