Woman sues after sex toy causes her to “bleed profusely and pass out”
A northern California woman is suing the makers of a sex toy after a vibrator made her bleed profusely and knocked her unconscious.
April Bonjour was using “marriage help” with her boyfriend when she experienced “sharp pain” and finally began to lose consciousness.
She had to be rushed to hospital and given “several pints of blood” because of the damage caused by the vibrator.
Foreplay went wrong: Miss Hello claimed the sex toy caused her “injury and emotional distress”
Miss Bonjour is now taking legal action against sex toy maker Pipedream Products after claiming that the company’s product caused her injury and emotional distress.
Describing the incident, which happened on November 3 of last year, she said: “During use, I felt severe and sharp pain inside my vagina. My boyfriend quickly removed the toy, it was covered in blood.
I thought, very briefly, that I had started my period, but as the bleeding continued to get heavier, I knew it wasn’t my period. I went through all my sanitary napkins and passed blood clots.
“The bleeding slowed down, but when I had to get up to change my towel, I would pass a clot and start bleeding again.
Legal action: Pipedream Products website boasts that the company has “the most comprehensive selection of adult novelties in the world”
“I started to pass out from the loss of blood, my boyfriend called 911. By the time they got there I was in and out of consciousness. My son was woken up so we could go to the hospital. He was terrified when he saw me.
“He thought I was dying (really me too). By the time I got to the hospital, I had lost so much blood that I was given several pints of blood.
“My family and I endured extreme emotional strain as a result of this episode. We have contacted the manufacturer of this product to see what their compensation will be for the event.
“They denied my request. It is for this reason that I initiated this trial.
The Pipedream product website boasts that the company offers “the world’s most comprehensive selection of adult novelties,” while its motto is, “We don’t orgasm … We enhance orgasm. ! ‘
