California Woman Sues Sex Toy Company Over Unsatisfying Dildo

it's not them, it's you.
Here's a sex story that probably isn't going to get you in the mood.

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.

I am not justifying this lawsuit attempt.  But how can I read all these awful comments about a women getting injured, judging her with an extreme cold heart.  THAT is the part very concerning. And disturbing.  The story is odd but it would seem people would be more concerned that she could of bled to death.  All of you disgust me more than this story; if anyone needs to watch out for, God it is all these people with cold hearts.  Not the women who became injured.  No matter what way it happen..........................

it would be more convincing if the doctor at the hospital could show or tell her something was hurt down there or if the dildo and something sticking out of it it is not believable that something actually happened if it was not from her own doing..Thanks for sharing with us.

How about some facts instead of milking a punch line?

If you look at sex toys before you buy them it has a warning saying "not intended for internal use."  or something like that havent been to a sex store in a while but I read warning labels and I found it odd that the reason u buy them is not what you are not suppose to use them for.  I doubt she she won the case.

You have really done great job. Thank you so much for posting the blog. Millions of people get treatment and expect high standards of medical facilities as well services from surgeons but sometimes individual has undergone some form of medical treatment that has gone wrong and level of care fell below the reasonable standard.In such cases claim for compensation due to medical negligence can be filed with the assistance of solicitor.

Unfortunately, this happens to women sometimes when I just use my penis because of it's great mass and girth. In all seriousness, it really sucks because I have to duct tape it around my leg so it doesn't rip my pants out.

This is a joke, right? You have to be kidding me....That is the part of the problem with our country...everyone wants to sue to get money for something stupid they did. Maybe she needs to get a new boyfriend....

would be more convincing if the doctor is in the hospital can not show or tell him something was done wrong there, or if the dildo and something that comes out is not credible, that something really happened, if it was not just doinggames for couples

Notice she said boyfriend & not husband. I will bet the boyfriend is not even the baby's daddy.

What does that have to do with anything? Before I married my wife I was her boyfriend and she had two sons does that make her a bad person? Could it be that she had divorced her son’s dad or even worse maybe the boy’s dad passed away. Get some facts before you start insinuating she is a bad person.

What did he have it attached to a jack hammer? Or was he just trying to start a fire with friction?

And which one, just read the entire complaint and it is vague at best. So which dildo? How do we know it was used properly? You do know that the Wabbit parts stays outside? Is there video evidence? Would the plaintiffs please demonstrate for the court how the product in question was used? I've seen some hellaciously large and strange things stuck inside my amateur porn star exGF [by herself and others] and she never bleed...or complained.

OK, Seriously, I have one simple question, HOW? Where did the blood come from? Lacerations caused by??? Was it huge and she too tight and it caused tearing? If she was treated at a hospital then there is a cause listed somewhere in the medical report. A liitle more explanation of the facts would help dildo consumers to spot unsafe products too.Incomplete story and where are the pictures??

From what I understand, It was 10 inches long, 5 or so inches wide, and 5 or so inches in girth.  Jesus...her boyfriend must have been like trying to throw a hotdog down a hallway

why report on it if you can't give the facts other than for comedic effect?  However, if the woman was seriously hurt then it's not funny no matter how she got hurt.  I find it disturbing that so many people feel like they are able to pass judgement on this woman & case with no facts presented in the story.

Analog2000

Of course people want to pass judgment on her without any facts!  She is a woman!  Having sex!  With her boyfriend (not husband)!  And she uses (gasp!) sex toys!  Be still my heart!  She is clearly a bad person with poor morals who deserves the pain and degradation she has received.  (I hope the above sarcasm is obvious.)

I find it interesting that it is okay to report on this, but there is (as you point out) no real information.  We can all talk about sex without it being obscene or inappropriate as long as it is to mock a woman for having it.  But as soon as we have to give real details about sexual acts or actually describe how she was injured, it is suddenly too graphic for SF Weekly.  

I am disgusted by the misogyny in this article.  "Unsatisfying," really?  God forbid an adult woman should be able to enjoy sexuality in her own home without criticism.

You are right, and it's easy to make fun, but it's not funny to the woman obviously. Someone eluded to the possibility of a hairline crack. This would be a possibility for injury and if there is a crack in the device and her tissue is in said crack they have a good case and should be awarded damages. Probably it would be a good idea, to test dildos out on your hands first-rub some lube on hands and rub the dildo back & forth to test it before using it so to speak, also to inspect them with a magnifying glass-this is your body & you must take care of it.

"Unsatisfying" is a word often used for cases where people go into shock from blood loss... /sarcasm.

Honestly, the title is highly misleading, and I almost hope it's due to negligence, and not a bias or slant against Tort law.
