When Henry Wolf hopped on his BMW motorcycle to take a leisurely four-hour ride, he never imagined that the ridged seat would give him an epic erection that was still going strong 20 months later. Now he’s suing BMW for lost wages, medical expenses, and mental and emotional distress. Since suffering from priapism (the medical term for a boner that just won’t quit), Wolf has been “unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish,” his lawyer stated in the lawsuit. No word yet from BMW, but apparently both the motorcycle and medical communities are baffled by Wolf’s condition, since motorcycle seats are much more likely to cause a very different problem: impotence. Either way, be careful out there, bikers: those seats are definitely not working in your favor. [Yahoo News]

Most people have important moments in their lives: graduation, getting married, having a baby. Yet, did you know men’s boners have significant life moments, too? The Smoking Jacket dutifully chronicles the the six most important erections a dude will ever have, from his first boner to his first Viagra boner. Which begs the question: Do women’s vaginas have most important life moments? Share them, do. [The Smoking Jacket] Keep reading »
It happens to the best of men: arousal but no lift … interest but no erection. When a man can’t get it up, the experience for him and his partner falls somewhere between awkward and utterly mortifying—I’ve even heard of men not calling women back because they were so ashamed of their inability to keep things on the up and up.

Over on Gawker, a commenter wondered what the opposite of an erection is. And that got me wondering, hey, what is the opposite of an erection called? To clarify, we’re not talking about a flaccid penis here. This is more like: If an erection says, “I have seen something that has given me an erection,” whatever this is says, “I have seen something that makes my penis the opposite of erect.” It’s like a no-boner. Get it? Like a no-brainer! Anyway. Check out our list of the top 10 names you could call the anti-erection if the situation required. Keep reading »
We’re a little Bikram crazy here at The Frisky. Back in November, I completed my first “30-Day Challenge,” where you do hot yoga every day for a month straight, and since then, I’ve managed to rope Amelia and at least two more girlfriends into the twisted, sweltering world. The health benefits are numerous and almost immediately evident: Not only do you feel better, experience increased energy and, oddly, a craving for fruits and vegetables instead of cheeseburgers, as an off-and-on smoker, I’ve noticed subtle but markedly improved blood flow and circulation in my hands and feet and, yes, even the pelvic region.
Apparently, some guys have too, and it’s even more pronounced. Like, way more. Keep reading »
Filament magazine, a for-women-by-women porno from England, ran into a spot of trouble recently. Quite inconveniently, their prudish printer refused to publish pictures of erections for fear of offending their other clients. How rude! Unfortch, that printer was 30 percent cheaper than other printers, so Filament‘s hands were tied—and not in a good way. But Filament just announced on their blog they were able to sell 328 copies and raise enough money to switch to pricier—and more liberal—printers. Hooray! You catch a preview of Filament‘s second issue online now and order a copy if it strikes your fancy.
I must say, the absolute best part of this story, however, isn’t that the porno mag can now print its peens. It’s how Filament posted a pic of a sexy guy sleeping in bed with a big black warning label over his crotch, which read “MAY OFFEND WOMEN.” Perhaps if you’re a woman who is easily offended by erections, you shouldn’t be looking at porn?

Most women, at some point in their lives, have tried to get with a guy whose equipment didn’t work. And if she loved him, or even liked him enough to make another date, she probably didn’t take a sledge hammer to his ego. But that probably didn’t stop him from beating himself up and considering some drastic measures to make sure his Johnson stands at attention when desired. After the jump, the drastic things men will do to get and stay hard. Keep reading »
