This sounds anything but pleasurable. Philly resident Michael Lowe is suing after claiming that a gel effectively ruined his penis. Lowe is suing the makers of Kama Sutra Pleasure Balm Prolonging Gel, based out of Thousand Oaks, Calif., and The Mood, a Philadelphia sex shop where he bought the stuff, claiming that the gel ruined his penis through disfiguration and making him permanently unable to ejaculate. Lowe is claiming in court that the gel he bought was defective.

The incident took place in September 2012, but Lowe claims he "used the Gel multiple times without wearing a condom ... without incident." However, when he used the gel with a condom, 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."

Lowe is now claiming that 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."

Both the makers of the product and the sex shop have yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit. It is unclear how much Lowe is suing for, but he is asking for compensation for the damages listed above, in addition to 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
