Man wins 38 million won because penis enlargement surgery gave him impotence

Filed under: hard to categorize, health — extrakorea @ 2:45 pm

A man had penis enlargement surgery, but it made him impotent. The hospital has been ordered to pay him 38 million won. How did the court arrive at this figure?

The Seoul Central District Court held the hospital liable for the accident, and estimated the amount of compensation based on the assumption that the sexual dysfunction deprived him of 15 percent of his capability to earn an income.

“It’s based on the belief he can work with no health problems until the age of 60,” said Judge Roh Ho-sung. “We estimated his sexual incapacity will undermine 15 percent of his capability to earn money through labor up to that age.”

How does being impotent affect his ability to work? Is he a porn star?

  1. How does being impotent affect his ability to work? Is he a porn star?

    Well, he did go in for penis enlargement, so maybe he was going to be. Now he’ll be confined to jobs such as (1) doing the lighting, (2) operating the camera, (3) applying make-up, (4) setting up shooting locations, and (5) writing dialogue.

    So he can now only do five out of the six jobs required. Makes sense to me.

    • Yes, we needed fluffer, because one out of five is only 20%, and he lost 15 percent of his capability to earn money.

  3. It’s based on the income he would have earned if he could sleep his way to the top. 🙂
