Dildo Christmas Tree Causes Outrage In Milan [Photos]

Christmas

A Christmas tree in Milan covered in 100 pink vibrators, dildos and various other sex toys has sparked tremendous outrage.

The tree was unveiled on the Italian city’s Via del Como, one of Milan’s classiest and chicest streets. It was decorated by MySecretCase, which is a new website that focuses on sex toys for women.

MySecretCase made sure to follow the correct procedures when applying to erect the tree, and even received approval from the local council. However, when the council actually saw what they’d approved they were both shocked and bemused. Police have now argued that they had no idea that these were the kind of decorations that were going to be used.

A note from the Milan council on the subject read, “The nature of the project was not fully made clear in the request we received for authorisation.” Because of this, they are now looking to remove the tree, and they have confirmed, “On the basis of this discrepancy, we have begun the process of cancelling the project.”

One member of the council, Chiara Bisconti, echoed this sentiment, remarking that the tree wasn’t suitable for the general public. He added, “it is an initiative which makes people uncomfortable.” So much so that, within 24 hours of being erected, the tree had been taken down.

Italy bans sex shops from advertising their products in public spaces. But Norma Rossetti, who is one of the partners of the MySecretCase, defended the tree, noting, “It’s much less vulgar than lingerie adverts or dancers you see on TV.”

Rossetti also added that the company had paid a $5,500 fee to install the tree in this prime location. Residents and passersby who noticed the tree during its short stint on the Italian street were divided in their opinion of it.

Some have labelled it “the tree of sin,” while others have happily posed alongside it. MySecretCase wanted people to “see and touch” the sex toys, and they even employed workers to stand by it and explain how each individual appliance worked.

The company took to their Facebook page to upload images of the tree’s installation, and they also looked to spread the hashtag #sexyxmas across social media, too.

Do you think that MySecretCase’s dildo/sex toy Christmas tree should have been left up to be admired? Or would you have been offended by it?
