Waylon-Lowe-UFCFormer UFC fighter and current WSOP lightweight Waylon Lowe has suffered his fair share of injuries in the octagon, but none of them were worse than the one he says he suffered during sex last September. Needless to say, he probably wont ever be using desensitizing penis gel again.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Lowe filed a lawsuit against a sex shop in Philadelphia called The Mood on May 14. It was at that shop that the 32-year-old says he bought a product called Kama Sutra Pleasure Balm Prolonging Gel. Lowe says the gel, which is designed to decrease sensitivity and improve sexual performance, left his genitals “permanently disfigured” and resulted in “catastrophic and permanent damage.”

“This is a very private, but very significant loss for a man who is very vital in so many other aspects,” Lowe’s attorney Thomas R. Kline said. “This is a man who literally makes his living avoiding injury; he knows how to protect himself. Yet he wasn’t provided with the most basic, simple instructions to protect himself from this product. If it could happen to him, it could happen to anyone.”

You want details? Fine. Lowe claims he applied the gel on Sept. 1 of last year and began making love to his fiancee without any issues. The lawsuit alleges things went south when they stopped making love so his fiancee could tend to the couple’s 3-year-old daughter. When Lowe returned, he reportedly “began to experience excruciating pain and pressure in his penis” and significant swelling which required medical attention.

“He sustained a very significant injury which was life-changing,” Kline said.

Lowe is suing The Mood shop and the makers of the gel, the Kama Sutra Co., for more than $50,000 in damages. The shop has pulled the product from its shelves for the time being, but claims it has been offered for more than 40 years and no one has ever had a problem. Marla Lee, the president of Kama Sutra Co., called the lawsuit “flabbergasting” and said more than 1 million units of the product have been sold.

“This product has been offered for over 40 years without incident of any kind, so it’s a bit confusing that he would have this kind of response to it,” Lee said. “The active ingredient [benzocaine] is quite common. It’s used in children’s teething products, so it’s probably pretty safe if it’s used for children.”

Moral of the story: lasting longer is overrated. I don’t know why Lowe would be lying about something like that, but I certainly hope he is. Sadly, his injury is not the most gruesome sex injury we have featured here, but we’re hoping it’s the last.
