PHILADELPHIA (CN) – Kama Sutra Pleasure Balm Prolonging Gel catastrophically disfigured a man’s penis and made him permanently unable to ejaculate, he claims in court.
Michael Lowe sued The Kama Sutra Co. and Kamsut Inc., both of Thousand Oaks, Calif., and The Mood, a Philadelphia sex shop where he bought the stuff, in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas.
He claims that before the disaster on Sept. 1, 2012, he “used the Gel multiple times without wearing a condom … without incident.”
But that day, he used the product and then put on a condom before having sex with his fiancée, he says in the complaint.
They were interrupted by the sounds of their daughter waking in the next room. While his fiancée went to check on her, Lowe waited in bed, he says.
“Before the couple resumed intercourse, Mr. Lowe began to experience excruciating pain and pressure in his penis,” the complaint states. “He removed the condom and his penis swelled significantly. He sought emergency medical treatment and follow-up care thereafter.”
He claims the gel caused “permanent scarring and disfigurement of the penis, permanent loss of sensation in the penis, permanent loss of functioning of the penis, permanent nerve damage to the penis, permanent tissue damage to the penis, and the inability to ejaculate.”
He seeks damages for all of that, plus medical expenses, lost wages, humiliation, embarrassment, negligence, strict liability, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty, loss of life’s pleasures, and present and future pain and suffering.
He claims the gel was defective and that his injuries were the direct result of the “omissions … recklessness, negligence and/or fault of defendants, the defective warnings of the gel, the defective instructions of the gel, the defective design and manufacture of the gel, and/or the breaches of warranties by defendants, and were in no way caused by any acts or omissions” on his part.
He is represented by Thomas Kline of Kline & Specter in Philadelphia.
