German Airport Closed Because of Sex Toys

BERLIN—Federal police in Berlin are blaming the closure of a terminal Tuesday at Schönefeld Airport on sex toys.

According to reports on, a routine screening of a suitcase led to an alert shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday. The X-rays showed “suspicious content in a luggage piece,” and the owner of the bag was reluctant to tell authors exactly what was inside, other than referring to the contents as “technical stuff.”

The terminal was closed and a bomb squad brought in to examine the suitcase. A vibrator and other sex toys were found inside.

The terminal was reopened before noon, officials said. No charges were filed.
