The Energizer Bunny does Delta Next time you pack your adult toys, fully loaded, in your luggage, remember that they may discharge at the most inconvenient time...

"It's airline policy not to imply ownership in the event of a dildo. We gotta use the indefinite article: 'A dildo.' Never 'Your dildo.'"

Wow, if Renee Koutsouradis was embarrassed then, she's got to be really embarressed having her story repeated on every late night talk show and weblog.

How unfortunate for this woman to try an attempt at solo membership in the Mile-High Club...

All the lonely people. Where do they all come from?

When i was living in Amsterdam, a friend of mine decided to purchase lots of sex toys, rubber, leather, etc. for friends in Japan who couldn't get similar stuff. But when we got to the airport, he was chosen "at random" to have his stuff searched. He'd done this last minute, so when they opened his carry-on, they pulled out a few thousands of dollars of BDSM equipment and other sex toys. The lady searching him was *far* more embarrassed than he was and kept dropping the toys as she was trying to put them back in his bag.

On the other hand, how many people would have heard about it if she hadn't filed a lawsuit? She did it to herself, so to speak ;-)

What I don't understand is why she packed it with the batteries installed. Put them in mismatched, or leave them out, and this sort of thing won't happen.

Of course, our bag got searched because somebody couldn't figure out what the coils of wire in the cylinder were from the Xray. They didn't have to take it out to figure it out, they just dug down far enough to see it, blushed and started putting everything back.
