In his lawsuit, Adrian Carter, 29, claimed that the sexual enhancement supplement, Virilis Pro, has caused his penile fractures.
Carter said that shortly after taking the supplement, he had sexual intercourse with his paramour wherein he felt a significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis.
He further claimed that emergency room doctors had to “deglove” or remove the skin from the penis and repaired his urethra, which had torn completely. Allegedly, the injury made him ineligible to have sex or future children.
The lawsuit also claimed that the supplement was defective and dangerous for use by consumers.
Defendants named in the lawsuit are Haute Health Limited Liability Company, Carney & Carney Financial Services, Solid Rock Worship Company, and Michael Heilig and Tyra Carney The said companies and individuals are situated at New Jersey.
The lawsuit, which was filed before the District Court of Harris County in Texas last August 27, is seeking medical expenses and punitive damages for product liability, negligence, deceptive trade, breach of warranty, loss of consortium, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
However, although some sympathized with Carter, others found his story to be absurd.
According to several urologists, penile fractures are common and usually happen as a result of traumatic sexual intercourse. In fact, according to the associate professor of urology at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Dr. Chad Ritenour, at least once a month, he sees similar cases in emergency rooms.
In typical prescription or herbal drug related cases, penis looks like an eggplant – purple in color and swollen but never a blood coming out, Ritenour added.
Incidentally, it is another one of a kind or probably first of its kind case to watch out for, according to some personal injury lawyers. Basically, Carter has to prove his allegations, plus the fact that it is apparently a rare sexual enhancement related case.
