Last week, the news broke that Trinidad’s Customs and Excise Division will seize any and all adult toys—even if imported for personal use. Now, naturally, that made us a little curious. What is it about sex toys that make them unfit for import, or even use? Well, according to Customs, an old legislation still exists that prohibits the use or sale of ‘pornographic’ items. This law hasn’t been changed – so we must live a vanilla-sex-filled life. Turns out, we at XX weren’t the only ones with a lot to say on this matter, so we’re rounding up the BEST responses from our sexually-dissatisfied nation.

Where’s the lie?
Why are some people complaining about the prohibition of Adult 🍆 toys? Isn’t the government already screwing you without them?

Feels like it, eh.
So all these bitter men that mad that their wives love their dildos more than them put a ban on importing sex toys???

So the general consensus is we’re all going to be vegetable farmers
Finding the person who could do it right is where the work comes in.
Our government is basically a vibrator with never-ending battery.
PSA: not suitable for children.
Grocery bills rising!
We feel that’s it.
Manicures for all!
But the best idea of them all:
What are YOUR thoughts on the sex toy ban? And is it gonna affect your life?
