Comment: Love your site, and wanted to suggest a topic for you to write
on.

Urban Myth: some Asian girls temporarily put cell phones inside their
vagina or anus, at their partner's request, so their boyfriends could give
them stimulation by calling the phone and causing the phone's vibrator to
activate. In some cases the phones had to be removed in hospital emergency
rooms.

Status: TRUE!

I work for a large cell phone manufacturer. Internally, we know it is a
fact that some small cell phones where used in this strange manner. There
were news reports about it, especially in Japan, HK, and Taiwan.
Obviously, phones were usually first put inside a condom before insertion.

Engineers knew of particular Motorola and Nokia cell phones that couples
preferred for this strange activity, because of small size and strong
vibration produced by phone's vibrator.

Why would working for the manufacturer give one access to what happens to a phone after it is purchased? Does the doctor pull the phone out of someplace it shouldn't be and then say, "Nurse, call Nokia, we've got another one"? Do they also call Coca-Cola whenever someone sticks a bottle up there?

I don't know about cell phones, but there are definitely remote control vibrators. I don't know why cell phones would be used as a replacement for them unless you are just underage or in a place where sex toys are banned (for whatever silly reason).

And actually, they look fairly entertaining. Like something that would take flirting and teasing with an S.O. in public to a whole new level.

SuperGoten, it's a generally accepted idea, although more of a stereotype than just an idea, that Japan gets all the weird trends, especially sexual ones, first.

Hijack! As an EMT I was driving and didn't want to put my pager back in its holster (under a heavy coat) so I dropped it on the seat between my legs. Low and behold, it went off again. SURPRISE!!!!!! [Wink] Okay, I'm done. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

This reminds me of the Purring Kitty. (Link is not necessarily unsafe for work - no pictures except of phones and a cat face.)

ETA: I always thought this was a real thing, but some of their links are broken.

Because their electronics are smaller. I don't think my cell phone would fit, but you know, they've probably got vibrator-sized ones over there... [Roll Eyes]

I'm going to school to be an x-ray tech, and I'm currently doing clinicals at the hospital where I live. They keep a whole folder full of strange x-rays (with the patients' information removed for obvious reasons), one of which happens to be an x-ray of a woman with a cell phone stuck in her "special place." So it does happen, in Oklahoma, nonetheless.

Because Asian NFBSK's are slanted, so it's easier to insert the phone

I know you're being facetious, but if you can fit a baby through there, then I'm prepared to bet that you can fit a phone up there.

Well, I wouldn't bet, as I've seen it done, so know that it's true. But you get my meaning.

Maybe this is just my misunderstanding of your terminology, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible for a cell phone (or anything else) to actually get stuck in the vagina. I suppose it's possible for a woman to be too frightened or squeamish to retrieve an item after it found its way there, but then why would she put it there (or let it be put there) in the first place?

The rectum is a different story, of course. I'll never forget reading about that in The Straight Dope when I was a teenager.

Trollface, maybe she has one of these? It's smaller than a baby, but I can't picture too many women wanting to get funky with it. [Eek!]

The clinical director said the phone was in the woman's vagina. Apparently she was experimenting with it, and it went in so far that she needed assistance to get it back out. Maybe she was too squeamish to retrieve it, I don't know I wasn't there. But it does happen...more than you'd think, and not just with cell phones...

I have been told by a co-worker that she gave herself an orgasm with her mobile phone set on vibrate. We've made a few jokes about it...
