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.
'I never heard of anyone being put at a higher risk for fracture because of a prescription or an herbal drug,' said Dr Chad Ritenour, associate professor of urology at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta to ABC.
'When a man breaks his penis it can be very scary. I believe he took this story and spiced it up.'
Dr Jeff Carney
'With a fracture, you typically get swelling and the penis looks like an eggplant -- purple and swollen. But blood coming out on the walls, that sounds really dramatic.'
He said that the typical story behind a penis fracture is someone having intercourse and hitting a pelvic bone in their partner.
'In the classic case, you hear a 'pop' and feel something immediately,' Dr Retenour said.
Dr Jeff Carney, chief of urology at Grady Memorial Hospital, said Mr Carter's story is 'the most absurd thing I have heard of in my life'.
He said that degloving would never be done in an emergency room, but by a skilled surgeon, and the part where the blood squirted on the walls? That was probably made up as well.
