PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) -- A former handyman has won more than $400,000 in a lawsuit over a penile implant that gave him a 10-year erection.

Charles "Chick" Lennon, 68, received the steel and plastic implant in 1996, about two years before Viagra went on the market. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it.

But Lennon could not position his penis downward. He said he could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks because of the pain and embarrassment. He has become a recluse and is uncomfortable being around his grandchildren, his lawyer said.

I don't know if I should feel sorry for this guy or not.. I mean it's pretty stupid to put a steel and plastic implant in your penis but maybe his doctors told him it would be cool. A man's gotta be able to get it up right? It's really to bad he didn't just wait a couple of years for the Viagra to come out. A ten year erection has got to be pretty intense!
