A Texas man claims a supplement promising to increase sexual pleasure caused him excruciating pain during intercourse — so great that his penis allegedly fractured, squirted blood and required an operation that messed with his manhood, according to a lawsuit.
The Aug. 27 complaint said Adrian Carter, 29, experienced “significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror” during a Houston motel romp last year, ABCNews.com reported Thursday.
The nightmarish scenario apparently wasn’t over: He went to an emergency room where doctors decided to “deglove” his penis — wherein the skin was removed to repair the urethra because it had “separated completely,” the suit said.
Following surgery, he had to urinate using a catheter and was warned by doctors that he may never have an erection again or father children, Courthouse News Service reported.
The suit faults the maker of VirilisPro, the “all natural” supplement that Carter said he took before meeting his “paramour.”
VirilisPro’s website says it increases sexual performance and “penile hardness,” lasting for up to three days.
The product — which retails for $59.99 a bottle — is made “with only natural ingredients to prevent harmful side effects,” according to its manufacturer.
Listed among its ingredients are epimedium, panax ginseng and Lycium Chinese.
New Jersey-based drug maker Haute Health LLC couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday.
Carter is seeking unspecified monetary damages, including for medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
“It was pretty horrific to view the pictures,” Carter’s attorney, Melissa Moore, told ABCNews.com. “I know it sounds unusual … He was young and healthy and on no other meds at the time he took the supplement.”
But some medical experts aren’t convinced he could have suffered such anguish from a pill.
Dr. Jeff Carney, chief of urology at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, told ABCNews.com that while a penis can become fractured during sex, he’s never heard of “anyone being put at a higher risk for fracture because of a prescription or an herbal drug.”
“When a man breaks his penis it can be very scary,” Carney added. “I believe he took this story and spiced it up.” [source]
Soooooo is any one else sitting there right now grabbing at their genitals whilst imagining the pain and saying: ” ooooooo daaaaamn ssshlllllllllllll ouch!” Oh just me? ok then…. because this foolishness here is just painful and disturbing to say the absolute LEAAAAST. The leaaaast.
Every time I see those ads on the porn sites about sexual enhancement, penis enlargements etc etc, I’m always thinking:” This is some ol boolshyt I bet.” But I have neverrrrrrr imagined that it would leave a fool with a cracked and blood spurting jibby. Not in a million years!! DAMN THIS! They seriously need to add such things on the warning label because regardless of how minute the possibility, I feel it necessary to know that in 1 out of 2 million cases, a jibby has been known to split down the middle and scurry off in two different directions. Waiting to hunt you down at night n what not.
I damn well should be warned about whatever drug you are asking me to buy might make my penis hunt me like i’m from District 12 n ish.
Thanks to Kenneth for the send in.
