If you tune into most television stations past 9 p.m., you have undoubtedly heard the ominous warning at the end of commercials for erectile dysfunction medications: “If you have an erection lasting more than four hours, consult a physician.”
For one California man, a ride of his life turned into penile priapism that lasted for 20 months — and he’s blaming it all on BMW.
