Woman sues over sex toy injury

April Bonjour and her boyfriend were just trying to spice up their sex life when they pulled out a dildo during foreplay one night. Unfortunately, the experience turned out to be anything but pleasurable for the North California woman who is now suing the manufacturer of the sex toy, Pipedreams Products, for personal injury, negligence, and breach of warranty.

In her claim, Bonjour wrote, “During the usage, I felt an intense 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, getting heavier and heavier, I knew it was not my period.”

Bonjour’s boyfriend eventually called 911 after his girlfriend used up all of her sanitary pads and passed multiple clots of blood. Bonjour said she grew faint from the loss of blood and was in and out of consciousness when the EMTs arrived. At the hospital she was given several pints of blood.

“My son … was terrified at the sight of me,” the claim reads. “He thought I was dying (quite frankly, so did I).”

Initially, Bonjour simply contacted Pipedreams for compensation for the unsatisfying dildo, but when the company refused to pay her she decided to take legal action. I’ll be curious to see how the company defends its motto, “We Don’t Make the Orgasm … We Make the Orgasm BETTER!” in light of this incident.

Sex toys can be a great way to make your love life more dynamic, but it shouldn’t come with this kind of risk. Stories like this are certainly a turn off to such experimenting. What do you all think? Will this news item make you shy away from such items from now on?
