The woman said she was heavily drunk and had forgotten to unplug the vibrator. "I’m so stupid. I used a vibrator a few weeks back and left it in my bed forgetting to unplug it (I live alone). I woke up with the thing going beside me because I got super drunk last night and rolled on top of it which flicked it on. It’s completely melted and my whole apartment smells like burnt plastic," she wrote.

"I honestly think it was minutes away from setting my whole apartment on fire, which is both embarrassing and terrifying," she stated. The Reddit user concluded her post by saying the "moral of the story" is "always unplug your vibrator". Her post left many readers stunned that something like this could happen if they leave the sex toy on charging.
One of the readers commented: "You should definitely contact customer care of the brand you got it from, that's very dangerous and not up to hazard standards." "It sounds like very poor design," another reader opined. Another woman said that she had a similar experience seven years ago.
