Local Man Claims BMW Ride Gave Him a Permanent Boner

Great performance ... the bike that is

Turns out BMWs aren't always a chick magnet.


Sadly, a San Francisco man had to find out the hard way how unpleasurable a BMW ride can be -- literally. According to a lawsuit filed in San Francisco this week, Henry Wolf says his BMW motorcycle's ridge-like seat gave him a "severe case of priapism," otherwise known as a really, really long (lasting) erection.

On the surface, that sounds like nothing more than a literalization of why guys buy motorcycles in the first place. But Wolf claims his constant erection has ruined his sex life -- and we're guessing that's more painful than the erection itself.

The complaint states that on May 1, 2010, Wolf was riding his 1993 BMW motorcycle equipped with a Corbin-Pacfic seat for about four hours when he noticed he had a hard and painful erection, which he now blamed on BMW and its deficiently designed seat.

"Plaintiff ... has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride. He is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish," his lawyer states.

Wolf is suing BMW of North America and Corbin-Pacific, seeking damages for lost wages, personal injury, medical expenses, product liability, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Perhaps Wolf should trade in his BMW for a minivan -- those are definitely boner-killers.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
