Mum-of-one Emma Phillips was feeling amorous with partner Lee Miller during the early hours of Saturday morning, Oct 1, when the 7 inch sex toy 'disappeared'. At first she thought Lee had hidden the vibrator, only to feel it vibrating inside her bottom wedged behind her hip.
Flustered Emma and Lee tried to extract the toy, bought for £28 as part of a couple's sex aid pack, with a fork handle and then later BBQ prongs before calling for an ambulance.
However, doctors at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, North East Wales, were able to remove the foreign body from Emma using surgery.
Recalling the embarrassing incident, the mother of one said:
"When a bit of Saturday morning playtime results in spending the day in Wrexham hospital having a nice pink vibrator surgically removed from your bowel areas.... whilst it's still vibrating. If you can't on a Saturday when can ya?"
"We weren’t going to do anything about it because of the embarrassment – there’s a big taboo about it – but we knew we needed help.
"I want to say a massive thank you to the ambulance crew and Wrexham Hospital staff who were really good, really reassuring and non-judgemental.
"There is a big taboo about this, but it really isn’t a big deal.
"You hear about people becoming really ill or even dying because they’re too embarrassed to get help – I would hate that to happen to someone."
