Let's hope the inspectors disinfected their hands after searching those bags. Or perhaps they used the toys on themselves before taping them to the bag.

This goes along with the "attitude tax" article where inspectors stole money and valuables from people they did not like.

Luckily heterosexual couples never use sex toys or engage in kinky sex. Just because there's a 12 billion dollar industry that provides hetero sex toys, porno, strip clubs, prostitutes, and you name it doesn't mean there is really any demand. Right?

True enough, but not related to the topic in any way. Most people of any sex orientation would be embarrassed by having such personal items taped to the outside of their suitcase. Same with condoms, underwear or hygiene supplies. This couple happened to be gay. They are looking for an extra payday on top of normal for that reason in my opinion.

People, take the batteries out and they won't be discovered. what happens is people leave batteries in the toy and it gets switched on from all the movement. The employee will open the bag in front of another employee and turn it off. It happens all the time with toys, shavers, toothbrushes etc. leave the batteries out. This never should have happened the employee or employees needs to grow up. I work airline ramp for decades, I know.

You alerted us to another possibility here. Could an inspector who found the item because it had started on it's own, taped it to the outside to prevent it from happening again and taking more inspection time?

How would the security people know the owner of the bag was gay? I don't think the prank was directed toward any particular sexual orientation. They just thought it was funny. They are childish.

If it set off the detectors in the first place, why would they put it back in the bag to cause more work later on? Could it be that simple? It's not their job to be removing batteries or disassembling things. Should they rather have thrown the stuff away?
