Priapism: 'Boost Plus' Blamed For Endless Erection, Man Sues
By Mitch Marconi
Jun 7, 2007
Priapism suit - A man from New York City has reportedly sued the maker of the supplemental drink 'Boost Plus,' claiming that the vitamin-enriched drink gave him priapism (an erection that does not abate) and forced him to seek hospital treatment, according to reports.
Christopher Woods, of Manhattan filed the lawsuit and the AP is reporting that he bought the health beverage, which is made by the Swiss-based Novartis pharmaceutical company, at a drugstore on June 5, 2004.
According to the Boost Plus website, the drink is described as "a great tasting, high-calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume." It is available in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.
According to court papers, Woods' said that he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment for the condition, which is called priapism.
Woods, 29, had surgery that day for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another, reports the AP.
Woods' lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and names Novartis Consumer Health Inc. as a defendant”

“Whereas, I am a firm believer...”
“Shouldn't this be on the get up thread?”
“I don't believe that Boost was the cause and even if it was how would the guy prove it in court?

“I fail to see the problem....”
“Must have been sorta awkward in the hospital waiting room...
What are you....oh, I see....”
“I'm going to the store now for a good supply of Boost Plus. I hope it works for me. I'll be advertising.
At least the pills try to limit you to 4-hours.
If it doesn't work, I plan to sue. What's chances the lawsuit is just an advertising plan to boast sales?

“You know, a lot of people (along with their girlfriends/wives) would kill for such a condition...”
“Maybe the Boost gave him just enough energy to actually break it. :0
Can't wait to hear the lawyers work this one up.”
“Oh, and to add to the running gag, anyone think he's gonna get stiffed in the lawsuit?
“He's definintely going to blow a wad on the lawyers...
“It looks like he bought the stuff on Tuesday, June 5...............just in time for Hump Day, Wednesday.
Though it appears that he couldn't get over the hump and it screwed up his week.....”
“does he not know you're not supposed to stick IT in the can?”
“Hopefully his pen is working because he's going to have a hard time signing all those legal forms. He won't get dick if he can't sign.”
“my question is this... what do they do to you at the hospital to treat this condition? i bet there are adult movies about this.”
“This guy apparently had his arteries rerouted. Seems pretty extreme to me...”
“Maybe a bucket of ice will do the trick.
If not then he will need a big hand.”
“Boost, huh? Back in five minutes.”
oh it hurts..
“Priapism (Greek πριαπισμός, erection) is a painful and potentially harmful medical condition in which the erect #&%!$ does not return to its flaccid state (despite the absence of both physical and psychological stimulation) within about four hours.
Priapism is a medical emergency and needs proper treatment by a qualified medical practitioner.”
“I usually head to the batting cage when I get one. After a couple of base hits, it subsides.”
“dammit, now I wish I would have a #&%!$. Crap!

“I can see the new marketing campaign
An erection in every can!
Boost, canned for her pleasure.
I'd better stop now.”

“Ha. Beat it like a borrowed mule...”
“Anyone notice this thread has been at the top for several hours :}”
“Would that be the tippy top?
At least it didn't get the shaft...”
“I think if the erection lasts longer than 11 hours you are supposed to amputate.”
“Gissmaeioux gots the Red Rokkit all the day some times when he is whoreny. Oh baybee! BOL!”
