Woman Needs Emergency Surgery After Vibrator Gets Stuck In Bladder

Medical professionals see a lot of weird things in their daily practice. Objects are found in places that they have no business being in.

And in a situation worthy of its own Grey’s Anatomy episode, one such object miraculously found its way inside a woman’s bladder. The object in question? A Vesper Vibrator Necklace. That’s right, my friends. A sex toy AND a piece of jewelry. All rolled into one.

Which required emergency surgery to be removed. FROM HER BLADDER.

And she has NO IDEA how it got there.

The woman, who prefers to remain anonymous, arrived at an emergency room in Mesa, Arizona, complaining of intense pain. And a vibrating abdomen.

She had worn the necklace out to dinner with her boyfriend and then used it with him when they got home. She claims that she only used it on the outside of her body as per the instructions by the seller, Crave.

Except in a turn of events akin to the Virgin Mary and her immaculate conception, the woman discovered a shocking surprise.

“I moved and out of nowhere I just felt a really sharp pain,” she told Arizona Family news. And that sneaky vibrator? Was nowhere to be found. She asked her boyfriend, “Where is it? And he like…didn’t know,” she said.

The first clue to its whereabouts? Intense pain in her stomach.

The second clue? It was still turned on.

“Every time it went off it was like my entire abdomen was vibrating.”

And with a full charge giving her 40 minutes of run time, she went to emergency with it STILL ON.

Several doctors performed pelvic exams but were unable to locate the vibrator. Confused as to what was happening, they called in OBGYN Dr.Greg Marchand to take a look. He says, “The emergency room staff wasn’t able to find it in the vagina.”

Because it wasn’t in the vagina. After consulting an x-ray, Dr.Marchand discovered that it was, in fact, in her bladder.

I was really surprised when I’m looking in the abdomen and realizing this device is actually in the bladder. I’ve never seen a case like this in my entire career.

Apparently, the Vesper Vibe had inadvertently slipped into her urethra and vibrated itself right on up into her bladder.

They had to surgically remove it.

Oops.

And I wonder, how is that even possible? How could she NOT have felt anything? I mean, the vagina, sure, maybe. But the urethra? If you have ever had the displeasure of requiring a catheter, you know exactly what I mean.

And the Vesper pleasure tool, while sleek at a mere 1/2″ diameter, is somewhat bigger than a catheter.

According to Crave’s website, the Vesper is “[d]esigned for beautiful experiences in public and in private, both as elegant jewelry and a strong slim vibrator.”

It boasts 4 power settings and comes in three finishes: Silver, Rose Gold, and 24kt Gold Plated. It’s made of high polish 316 stainless steel and measures 3.8″ long.

And apparently, it doesn’t disappoint. It has 687 reviews to date and has earned a four-and-a-half out of five star rating. 93% of respondents say that they would recommend it to a friend.

Except for Mesa lady. She doesn’t recommend it to a friend.

In fact, the woman plans on filing a lawsuit against the company. She blames them for their lack of a warning label, stating, “The vibrator could potentially lodge itself in your bladder, even during normal use.” Or something like that. Because obviously, the safety label that they DO attach directly to each product, stating, “Warning – not for anal, vaginal or urethral insertion” is not enough. She also claims that “the small and narrow design is dangerous, especially with a detachable chain.”

The company is not taking her accusation lying down. In a statement to Arizona Family News, they make it clear that while the Vesper obviously moves you, it does NOT have the ability to pick itself up and “enter an individual’s urethra by itself.”

Media reports have come to our attention making the claim that a woman using our Vesper ‘outside of her body as intended’ resulted in the product entering her urethra and ending up in her bladder. We care first and foremost about the health and well-being of our customers and design all our products through that prism. The Vesper is designed for external use only and we stand behind its safety and quality for this use. Additionally, every Vesper is shipped with a¬†clear safety label attached¬†directly to the product that says ‘Warning – not for anal, vaginal or urethral insertion.’ Because the woman has not contacted us, we have no direct insights into how the product was actually used. What we do know is that the Vesper cannot enter an individual’s urethra by itself as the story implies. Since our inception we have been keenly focused on bringing modern design and safe products to a category historically dominated by novelty items, and we stay committed to that mission.

Regardless, Mesa woman and her boyfriend plan on taking a hiatus from sex toys for the foreseeable future.
