A student teacher has warned kinky couples to be careful in the bedroom after her steamy misadventure turned into a serious visit to the hospital.
Mum-of-one Emma Phillips and partner Lee Miller were using a 7 inch sex toy when it ‘disappeared’.
Minutes later the 24-year-old said when she leaned forward she could feel it vibrating inside her bottom wedged behind her hip.Emma and 29-year-old Lee tried to extract the toy,before calling for an ambulance.
Emma, then took to Facebook to speak out about her bizarre emergency and told others not to allow embarrassment from stopping them seeking help if they find themselves in a similar predicament.
She posted a Facebook photo of herself giving a thumb’s up from her hospital bed, telling her friends all about her misadventure with a sex toy.
“We’d both been drinking the night before so we couldn’t drive. I had to make the most embarrassing call to the ambulance at 7am.”The call handler said ‘tell me exactly what the problem is’ so I had to tell him.””At that point it was just more surreal than anything. I didn’t feel much pain at that point – I was in too much shock.”
Doctors carried out an x-ray to work out where the still-buzzing vibrator was and realised it was too high up and would be too painful for them to manually extract it while she was awake.
Emma said: “I think at that point it started getting quite serious. The doctors were really good – they all moved quite quickly and were so reassuring telling me they saw it quite often which was quite a relief.
“At first we were jokey about it but then realised it wasn’t much of a joke especially when there was talk of going through my stomach if they couldn’t get it.”
As she was being wheeled to theatre doctors told Emma if they couldn’t extract it rectally they would have to go through the bowel and take some out which could mean at least six months with a colostomy bag.
“I think before that I thought of it as just a little operation to get it out, I still wasn’t taking it that seriously.
“When he said that – that only when I woke up would I know whether they would have to cut me open – it was really scary.”
At 12pm Emma underwent the minute-and-a-half surgery which involved placing a camera down her throat and the surgeon pressing on her stomach before manually extracting it.
Doctors offered her the toy as a keepsake but she declined.
She was discharged at around 6:30pm before tentatively making her way home to see her two-year-old daughter.
