Gay Couple Sues Airline Over Sex Toy Prank
A gay couple from Virginia filed a lawsuit against Continental Airlines and claims some of the company’s employees humiliated them by taping their personal dildo to the outside of their luggage, SF (San Francisco) Weekly reported.
Christopher Bridgeman and Martin Borger, who reside in Norfolk, Va., are suing the airlines and say the workers went through their belongings, took a dildo out of their bag and taped it to their luggage, which humiliated the couple as everyone in baggage claim could see their personal sex toy.
According to the lawsuit, the couple is seeking damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and negligence.
"Upon arriving in Norfolk, plaintiffs exited the aircraft and went to the baggage claim area," the complaint states. "Plaintiffs’ bags were sent to the baggage carousel where plaintiffs discovered, to their horror, that a private sex toy had been removed from one of their bags, covered in a greasy foul-smelling substance and taped prominently to the top of their bag."
Borger, 35, told NBC News that thinking about the incident "still bring butterflies to my stomach."
A spokeswoman for Continental said in a statement that the company has launched a thorough investigation and said there is no support for the couple’s accusations, NBC News noted.
