"Son, Did You Pay For That Dildo?"; Teen Caught Shoplifting Sex Toys

If money is the issue, you can always go secondhand.
  • If money is the issue, you can always go secondhand.

The teenage years are a time meant for personal experimentation. Tastes and preference, comfort levels and inclinations, all of it should get worked out in that headlong hormonal rush toward adulthood. Got to learn how to do you.

If that means messing around with some sex toys, by all means, go for the gold. Only, you should probably fork over your own dime rather than pinch the items from a store. If a security guard makes you unzip your backpack and haul out some 8-inch Sinforia in the middle of a crowded mall, all your Freudian nuts and bolts might get twisted up for years to come.

That might be the case down at Summit Mall, where an 18-year-old was just nabbed at a Spencer Gifts. Via Patch:


Security watched the teen grab a sex toy, open the box, put the item into a backpack and walk out the of store, the report said. He came back a store time later, grabbed another of the same item, opened it and put it in his backpack as well.

Security stopped the teen on his way out this time and retrieved the items. They were valued at $34 and police charged the teen with theft.
