A massive bag of sex toys brought Berlin’s Schönefeld airport to a stand still on August 10, 2018. Security personnel were alerted to the piece of luggage when a routine x-ray flagged the items to be suspicious.

As it was unclear as to the precise nature of the contents of the bag security issued an alert closing the terminal whilst they investigated.

A massive bag of sex toys brought Berlin’s Schönefeld airport to a stand still on August 10, 2018. Security personnel were alerted to the piece of luggage when a routine x-ray flagged the items to be suspicious.

As it was unclear as to the precise nature of the contents of the bag security issued an alert closing the terminal whilst they investigated. The owner of the luggage was located and aroused even more suspicion when he was reluctant to disclose the nature of the bag's contents, only describing them as 'technical stuff'.

Security proceeded with an inspection of the items, and after an hour determined that the contents of the bag were a variety of sex toys, and not dangerous (to the flight or the airport at least!).


This incident occurred in the same week as a terminal at Frankfurt airport in Germany was evacuated after a family who tested positive for explosives were allowed to proceed through security.
