Gentlemen, be careful out there.
Mixed martial artist Waylon Lowe ventured to a sex shop to purchase some Kama Sutra Balm Prolonging Gel and what he got in return was far worse than he bargained for.
According to a report on Philly.com, Lowe, 32, has sued the store where he purchased the gel and the product’s California-based creator because it, “burned and scarred his genitals so badly last fall that he remains permanently disfigured and dysfunctional.”
Lowe, 32, is seeking more than $50,000 in damages, according to a lawsuit filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court.
“This is a very private, but very significant loss for a man who is very vital in so many other aspects,” said Lowe’s attorney, Thomas R. Kline. “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.”
Lowe is 14-4 that includes a four-fight run in the UFC. He has won four-straight fights since his last UFC appearance in May of 2011, a loss to Nik Lentz. Lowe last fought on March 23 in the World Series of Fighting where he KO’d Cameron Dollar in the first round.
