priapism (n.) – potentially harmful and painful medical condition in which the erect penis does not return to its flaccid state, despite the absence of both physical and psychological stimulation, within four hours.

“No Rothish priapism or Barthish meta-parody or Woody Allen-type kvetching.”

Wallace, David Foster. “Some Remarks On Kafka’s Funniness.” Consider the Lobster. New York: Back Bay Books, 2007. p 62.
