Can a vibrator harm you if it turns out not to be waterproof?

There seems to be a number of vibrators that are marketed as "waterproof", but in reality are only splash-proof and aren't working when submerged in water.
If you put such a toy in, say, a bathtub and try to use it, can it hit you with electic current or harm you in any other way? Or will it always just stop working?

If it isn't a toy that has to be plugged into a wall, and it is submerged when not waterproof it will not hurt you, but it will die!

Instead of repeating her only using different words, I'm just going to second what Miss said.

For the most part only the toy will suffer, unless it's line powered. You can probably go up to 50V safely.

There are a lot of factors to consider with electrical safety, another one being whether the current will flow through you or not.

thats something I don't want to think about, scary pictures in my head of me in the shower and then passing on 1000 ways to die on Spike....

I doubt it will hurt you. I think it'd be an entirely different story if it were an appliance that plugged into a wall, but I'm just repeating what everyone else has already said.

if it plugs into the wall, you definitely don't want it in the water.

toys that use batteries will not do any damage if they shock you from being in water. They will die. Water will get inside and kill it. If it is a toy that plugs into your household current, and you put it in water. It can do some damage if it was not intended to be summerged in water.
