Ouch. I expect a stiff penalty.

Texas Man Who 'Broke' His Penis During Sex Suing Makers of Boner Pill
A man who suffered a traumatic penile fracture last year is suing the makers of an herbal "sexual enhancement supplement," alleging it was directly responsible for his terrifying injury.
29-year-old Adrian Carter of Houston says he experienced "significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror" after engaging in sexual intercourse with his "paramour" at a local motel.
He rushed to the emergency room, where doctors were forced to "deglove" his penis in order to fix the fracture — a procedure that reportedly resulted in his inability to copulate or produce progeny.
Carter's lawyer, Melissa Moore, claims her client's doctor "directly linked" Virilis Pro, marketed by Haute Health LLC as an all-natural supplement, to his horrific ordeal. "It was pretty horrific to view the pictures," she told ABC News. "I know it sounds unusual...He was young and healthy and on no other meds at the time he took the supplement."
But a University of Texas Professor of Urology who spoke with 1200 WOAI News said Carter's injury was actually not that unusual.
"What happens is, when a guy has an erection, the penis is filled with blood and there's a lot of pressure," Dr. LeRoy Jones said. "If the pelvic bone hits the penis, you can kinda think of the penis as buckling. You can get a rupture and blood can leak out."
Dr. Jones further noted that it's highly unlikely the pills were responsible — mostly because they don't work. "Maybe guys will have a placebo effects," he said, "but there's nothing in there that will help them."
