A woman who bought a head massager to tackle her hair loss was left feeling embarrassed when her husband asked why she'd left a sex toy in the kitchen. Yikes.
Tanya Rennie had good intentions when she bought the £13.46 'massager', thinking it might help with her unexplained hair loss, which she'd been experiencing for nearly five months.
However, when her partner Scott pointed out her new gadget was in fact a sex toy and told her to test out the product (on her head), she realised the hilarious mistake she'd made.
Tanya, from Plymouth, Devon, said: "It felt like my whole head was vibrating - my ears, my head.
"I took it off and my head was still vibrating. I had it like that for 10 seconds. It was like my head being in a tumble dryer - not that I'd know what that feels like.
"I did feel a bit silly that my husband [realised what it was] before me. How did he notice straight away and I took no notice at all? It made it even more funny.
She went on to say: "I bought the old style one with metal tongs on it that you press into the head, but then I saw the electric one too and thought, 'That would be good.'
"I thought nothing of it really... I opened it from the brown envelope and put it on the side. It was there for a couple of hours by the kettle until my husband came in from work.
"The first thing he said was, 'Honey, what are you doing leaving sex toys lying around?' I looked at him and said, 'It's not your birthday, its not a sex toy. It's for my head.'
"He said, 'That's not for your head.' I showed him the purchase on my phone and he started laughing."
Whoops! Perhaps Tanya should've realised that when she bought a '30 speed magic vibrating full-body sports massager', it was actually for more racy activities.
Still, perhaps we should give her a break on this one, especially when she's undergone such emotional stress from suffering from hair loss.
Tanya, who works as a support worker, explained: "It's been significant hair loss. It's not like alopecia where it's in patches, but it's at the crown of my head.
"I only noticed it because someone took a photo of me from behind and I zoomed in and the crown of my head was almost bald.
"I had noticed when washing my hair that a bit more hair was coming out. I've never had thick hair, but I realised how bad it has gotten and since then I realised my hair is coming out quite a lot.
As well as using a device that she describes as a 'big wire spider', Tanya is also trying out a scalp treatment that she massages in twice a day.
"I've seen a bit of baby growth at the front of my hair that was receding, so I'm a bit more optimistic," she continued.
"That's within four months of using it so we'll see how we go after six months."
No doubt it's way more effective than the vibrator. For her hair growth, anyway.
