A woman from Northern California has filed a suit against sex toy makers, Pipedream Products after a vibrator caused heavy bleeding and left her unconscious.
April Bonjour has purported that the company's product caused her personal injury and emotional distress.
Bonjour had been using the 'marital aid' with her boyfriend when she felt a 'sharp pain' and ultimately started getting in and out of consciousness.
"During usage I felt an intense sharp pain inside of my vagina. My boyfriend quickly removed the toy, it was covered with blood," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
She had to be rushed to hospital and given 'several pints of blood' due to the damage caused by the vibrator.
Bonjour initially thought that she was bleeding because she had started off with her periods but soon realized that it was a case of sex toy malfunction.
"My family and myself have endured extreme emotional duress due to this episode. We have contacted the maker of this product to see what their compensation for the occurrence will be," she said.
The company however denied the claim, prompting Bonjour to file the lawsuit against them.
"They have denied my claim. It is for this reason I have initiated this lawsuit."
Pipedream products' website brags that the company has 'the most comprehensive adult novelty selection in the world', and its motto says, "We Don't Make the Orgasm...We Make the Orgasm BETTER!"
