A Houston man is suing the makers of an herbal supplement that promises better sexual performance because he claims it caused his penis to fracture during a roll between the sheets with his girlfriend.
According to the lawsuit, filed this week, Aaron Carter had "significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror."
The suit, filed in the district court of Harris County, goes on to claim that VirilisPro was "defective and unreasonably dangerous for use by consumers."
Carter, 29, is seeking medical expenses and punitive damages for "pain and suffering."
We tried to reach the manufacturer, Haute Health, but they have not returned calls.
Injuries during intercourse, while rare, do happen. Dr LeRoy Jones, who is a Professor of Urology at the University of Texas Health Science Center says they see about a dozen cases a year.
He tells 1200 WOAI news, this case is typical.
"What happens is, when a guy has an erection, the penis is filled with blood and there's a lot of pressure. If the pelvic bone hits the penis, you can kinda think of the penis as buckling. You can get a rupture and blood can leak out."
He says, surprisingly, it is not as painful as many would think. He calls it a "semi-urgent surgery."
As for the pills, he doubts they're to blame.
"Maybe guys will have a placebo effects but there's nothing in there that will help them."
Jesus christ ouch
