Woman Sues After Sex Toy Causes Pain, Bleeding

A Northern California woman is suing a sex toy manufacturer, saying she was hospitalized with pain and bleeding after using the device with her boyfriend. The woman wants damages from the company for personal injury, negligence, and breach of warranty.

According to the SF Weekly, the woman said she’s suffering emotional trauma from the incident, which caused her to receive several pints of blood at the hospital. In her suit (PDF), she wrote that her son was worried about her life:

“My son was woken up so we could go to the hospital,” she wrote. “He thought it I was dying…[and] quite frankly so did I.”

The woman said she sued after the toy manufacturer refused to provide compensation.
