California Woman Sues Sex Toy Company Over Unsatisfying Dildo
|it's not them, it's you.|
A Northern California woman is suing Pipedream Products, which manufactures sex toys, claiming her experience with her dildo was anything but pleasurable. According to the claim filed in Yreka, April Bonjour and her boyfriend were getting frisky and decided to bring out the dildo for some foreplay. But while the two were getting it on, something started to feel not quite right, according to Bonjour.
"During the usage, I felt an intense sharp pain inside my vagina," Bonjour wrote in her claim. "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."
After using up all her sanitary pads and passing multiple clots of blood, Bonjour said she grew faint from the loss of blood. Her boyfriend eventually called 911.
"By the time they got there, I was in and out of consciousness," she said. "My son ... was terrified at the sight of me -- he thought I was dying (quite frankly, so did I)."
At the hospital, Bonjour was given several pints of blood. Although she physically recovered from the incident, the emotional duress has weighed on her and her boyfriend. Bonjour contacted Pipedreams Products demanding compensation for the unsatisfying dildo, but the company refused to pay her.
So she is now suing the company, whose motto, by the way, is "We Don't Make the Orgasm ... We Make the Orgasm BETTER!." for personal injury, negligence, and breach of warranty.
