A 29-year-old Texas man is suing the makers of VirilisPro for causing his penis to become so erect it fractured during intercourse and now he is unable to have sex or children because of it.
Adrian Carter was a happy and healthy twenty-something before the incident last year at a Houston motel, in which his appendage became engorged and bloody.
He was rushed to the emergency room, where they discovered he required immediate surgery and had to render him infertile and now he wants the company that manufactures VirilisPro to pay.
‘It was pretty horrific to view the pictures,’ Mr Carter’s lawyer, Melissa Moore, told ABC.
‘I know it sounds unusual. He was young and healthy and on no other meds at the time he took the supplement.’
VirilusPro is a a natural supplement that promises to give men a harder erection for natural male enlargement and a more intense orgasm. It also promises to increase stamina and lower recovery time.
Mr Carter’s lawsuit, filed on August 27 in Harris County Court, alleges that the pill is ‘defective and unreasonably dangerous for use by consumers.’
According to the suit, obtained by ABC, Mr carter purchased the product in the ‘early morning hours’ at a Chevron gas station on his way to the Scottish Inn, where he was scheduled to meet a ‘paramour’.
When the two had sex, he had ‘significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror.’
He was rushed to the hospitals where doctors had to ‘deglove’ his penis in order to repair it, a procedure that removes the skin of the penis, in order to repair his urethra which had ‘separated completely’, according to the suit.
‘Doctors again warned him that he may never have an erection or be able to father children and his ureters may close, resulting in permanent inability to urinate naturally,’ the suit claims.
Mr Carter wants the drug manufacturer, Haute Health Limited Liability Company, Carney & Carney Financial Services, individuals Michael Heilig and Michael and Tyra Carney, and Solid Rock Worship Company, to pay up.
In addition to his medical expenses, he wants funds for punitive damages, breach of warranty, deceptive trade, mental anguish, pain and suffering and the ‘past and future loss of consortium’.
None of the defendants could be reached for comment.
But leading urologists say it is very unlikely that the pill could have caused such an incident.
