Woman sues sex toy company after injuring herself using vibrator

California woman claims a little foreplay nearly put her six feet under.

April Bonjour says her pleasure turned quickly to pain while using a "vibrator/dildo" with her boyfriend last November when the sex toy caused a sharp vaginal pain and massive bleeding.

"I started to get faint from the loss of blood," she wrote in a personal injury complaint filed Aug. 30 in California Superior Court.

"My boyfriend called 911. By the time they got there, I was in and out of consciousness."

Bonjour, in her suit against Pipedream Products Inc., said both she and her son "thought I was dying ... Once we got to the hospital, I had lost so much blood I was given several pints."

The Dunsmuir, Calif., resident filed a civil complaint against the business seeking compensatory damages of more than $25,000. Bonjour's court papers indicate the company brushed her off when she contacted them.

An e-mail sent Thursday for comment from California-based Pipedream was not immediately answered.

The lawsuit also notes that the product "was being used in the manner intended by the defendant" when her injuries occurred.
