FEDERATION FOR ANIMAL PROTECTION:

Call for ban on animal sex toys

Carin Pettersson 03.11.04 10:16

The Norwegian Federation for Animal Protection in Nordland wants the sale of animal sex toys banned.

«The Norwegian Federation for Animal Protection works actively to ban sexual relations with animals in Norway. Because of this, the organization in Nordland has written a letter to Kondomeriet, where the business is asked to remove all sex toys in the shape of animals,» stated the Norwegian Federation for Animal Protection in Nordland in a press release issued Tuesday.

Unfortunate signal
«Through the promotion and sale of such articles, Kondomeriet presents animals as sexual objects for people and contributes to generalize and downplay a serious problem,» writes the organization.

The organization claims the sale of such items sends an «unfortunate signal.»

Tasteless
«Both the product and the marketing is tasteless and morally improper. The items are, according to Kondomeriet’s own advertising, directed against stag parties and bachelors. The advertisement appears as an invitation to and trivializing a serious problem regarding sexual relations with animals.»

Good business
However, sex toys are good business. Kondomeriet sold for NOK 36.6 million (USD 5.7 million) in 2003.

«The market is far from satisfied,» said Bente Helstad, manager of Konsomeriet, to TV 2 Nettavisen in January of this year. «I think Norwegians will continue to enjoy such joys.»
