Probably fertile: The sperm could have gone backwards - this is called 'retrograde ejaculation' and the sperm goes backwards into your bladder and comes out later when you pee. It is unlikely that having this happen once would damage anything or cause infertility later on - assume you're fertile if you're not trying to have a kid. Obviously if you have abnormal swelling, bruising or bleeding then get checked out.

Doubtful: The sex toy doesn't appear to have caused any permanent harm. If there's any concern then have a semen analysis checked , but what you described doesn't raise any concern.
