When I saw this story online, I literally laughed out loud! I mean, it really isn't a funny story. In fact, it should really make most men cringe while reading it, but come on! This is ridiculous! So, Adrian Carter, a 29-year-old from Texas, is claiming that a supplement promising to increase sexual pleasure during intercourse caused his penis to allegedly fracture, squirt blood, and require an operation that messed with his manhood. Oh, it gets better! The August 27 complaint stated that Carter experienced, and I quote, "significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror" during a Houston motel roll in the hay sometime last year. Are you cringing yet, guys? Or are you keeled over laughing?
If you're cringing, I'm not done! Apparently, Carter was taken to an emergency room where doctors decided to 'deglove' his penis, which means they had to remove the skin from his penis to repair the urethra because it had 'separated completely'! I think I just threw up in my mouth! Following the surgery, Carter had to urinate using a catheter and was warned by doctors that he may never have an erection ever again or father children. Ouch!
These events lead to a lawsuit against VirilisPro, an 'all-natural' supplement that Carter said he took before meeting his partner. VirilisPro's website brags that their product increases sexual performance and 'penile hardness' lasting for up to three days. Wow! Three days? Does anyone really want to stay hard for three days? I mean really? How would you even be able to go out in public like that? Unless, you stayed home for three days, this pill is really useless and ridiculous! A bottle of this stuff retails for about $59.99 and is made with only natural ingredients, like epimedium, panax, ginseng and Lycium Chinese, to prevent harmful side effects.
Carter is seeking unspecified monetary damages, including medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Some medical experts aren't convinced that Carter could've suffered such anguish from a pill. One urologist said that a man's penis can become fractured during sex, but he's never heard of 'anyone being put at a higher risk for fracture because of a prescription or an herbal drug.' The doctor added, "When a man breaks his penis it can be very scary, but I believe he took his story and spiced it up." I don't see how this guy, Carter, can sue this herbal company. It's his negligence for taking the pill in the first place. When you take something and are not sure what it does, you're the responsible party! You're taking a risk! That's like going to a concert and suing the band because you were bored at the concert! This guy shouldn't get anything! It's his damn fault for taking a pill that gives you a three day hard-on!
