Interesting story. I'm sure that the pilot was embarrassed



This was the most interesting takeaway:


Quote:
Sex toys are commonly left behind when a guest checks out of a hotel, mainly because they’re hidden out of sight, in a drawer or under the bed.
According to a 2015 study, a third of UK hotel lost property is sex-related.
Andrea Tarpey, from Laterooms.com, who carried out the survey at the time, said: "While we fully expected smartphones, laptops and chargers to top the list, we were really surprised by some of the more unusual items our hotel partners have come across in their rooms — especially the number who regularly find abandoned sex toys."

One third of all lost property??? Wow!

I don't know why anyone was embarrassed? As far as I can tell, no one specific was called out.

The thing is 25 inches! Thats scary, seriously. At that size it doubles as a weapon to pummel an intruder. Yikes!

I think we're all supposed to giggle and pretend that sex is something that none of us do, and that we're all shocked -- shocked, I say! -- to discover that anyone would ever possess such an item!

Now, if you'll excuse me I must go find my smelling salts...

I don't believe their numbers.

1/3 of items left behind are sex related? Don't believe it.

Speaking only for myself, in the US, what I find are shirts left behind in drawers, a flip flop under the bed, a phone charger, a sock over in the corner, an earring in the carpet.

Yes. Centimeters not inches.

I'd believe it, who is going to take home condom wrappers and bottles of lube?
