EU Parliament Mulls Vibrator Ban


Vibrator
YNOT EUROPE – A European Parliament measure designed to benefit the environment could remove some sex toys — including the ever-popular Rampant Rabbit and most other vibrators — from the market.

Primarily aimed at items like cell phones and home appliances, the proposal would ban the use of polyvinyl chloride in electrical products, based on research indicating a harmful amount of the non-degradable plastic polymer ends up in landfills even when consumers recycle.

PVC is used extensively to in the manufacture electrical cables. The polymer is used instead of rubber to coat wires.

“Electrical goods end up in landfill sites, often in developing countries, and that is a problem,” an EP spokesman said. “Sex toys would be included.”

The British Plastics Foundation warned removing PVC could cost consumers billions as the plastics industry and electronics manufacturers modified their facilities and processes. The costs to the plastics industry alone would approach £1 billion, a spokesman said.

Predictably, some observers took the news more seriously than others.

“Taking PVC out of electrical goods would cost millions … and cost the bedrooms of Britain a lot of fun,” United Kingdom Independence Party Chairman Paul Nuttall told British tabloid News of the World.

Among the UKIP’s chief goals is the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union.

According to News of the World sex columnist Tracey Cox, “There are going to be a lot of very disappointed women out there. [Members of the EP] might want to be environmentally friendly and get rid of [PVC] but what would women do? They’d certainly eat a lot more Belgian chocolates.”
