LUDVIKA, Sweden, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Swedish woman said she visited her doctor's home to receive extra care for a sore shoulder, but was given a sex toy instead.
The woman, whose name was not reported, told Swedish newspaper Dalarnas Tidning she had been visiting the doctor at a clinic in Ludvika regularly for pain in her shoulder.
She said the visits became increasingly longer and extended beyond the clinic's open hours. The doctor, whose name was not reported, eventually offered to treat her at his home free of charge.
"I thought that he was kind and wanted to help me," she said.
When she visited his home, instead of treating her shoulder, he gave her a dildo to help "boost her self-esteem."
"My reaction was a hysterical laughing attack. The doctor then wondered if it was the wrong color and asked if I would rather have a blue dildo instead of the pink one," the woman said.
After the woman left, the doctor continued to contact her by email and phone, suggesting another visit to his home, this time with a friend, TT reported Saturday.
When the woman became scared and isolated herself in her home because of the doctor's attention, her mother prized the story out of her and called the clinic to complain, TT said.
The doctor was fired from his job and local authorities are investigating the incident, TT reported.
