Jane, a 61-year-old woman, took to Facebook to ask a group dedicated to glass collectors about a strange object she had found. After she was finally told what it was, she was very embarrassed.
Anyone in her position would have been left speechless by the incident.
Jane is a committed churchgoer, and there is a lot she does not know about "regular" things. So, there was no way she would have known what she had in her possession.
The strange object, which Jane thought was a vintage bottle stopper, had washed up in a friend's garden following a storm. They had picked it up, thinking it was a bottle stopper.
But Jane was wrong about the purpose glass object she had collected. It turned out that they had found a sex toy.
In the Facebook group she posted asking for help, she mentioned that a friend of her sister had found a solid glass piece. She went on to say that the friend could not understand what it was and had asked Jane for help identifying it.
Since Jane could not tell what it was, she reached out to the Facebook group for help. She wrote saying:
"Hoping to get an idea of what it is. The only thing coming to mind is either a bottle stopper for a decanter or possibly a chess piece."
Jane explained that the glass object measured 4.5 inches in height by 1.5 inches in diameter. The base was 1.75 inches.
The glass object also appeared to have a reflective gold coating on it.
Innocently, she used the word "fat part" while describing some aspects of the bizarre object. This had a lot of people cracking up.
It was like she knew exactly what she was talking about.
Sex Toys Have Been Around For A Long Time
It is not very clear when sex toys became part of human history. However, the first electromechanical toy was made in 1869.
Archeologists have been successful in discovering sex toys from 28,000 years back. These devices were made using stone and camel dung.
Some people in the Facebook group quickly understood what Jane had, with some offering funny but hilarious answers. Someone told her that it was a stopper, alright, "just not for a bottle."
Once Jane discovered what the glass item was, she was speechless. She decided to make an update to her post.
She said she was grateful that she knew nothing about the "world" that uses such products. Jane also made it clear she had no interest in learning more about it.
Jane also said that she and her sister laughed after discovering the truth. She mentioned that they could still not forget that they had handled the toy:
"I don't think there's enough soap to wash away that image."
A few people thought Jane was pretending not to know what the object was. People thought the elderly woman was simply chasing clout by posting the picture.
She responded by insisting that she had no idea what the glass object was. Her sister and her sister's friend could also not figure out what it was since they had been kept away from "such things" throughout their lives.
The woman insisted that the three were "very religious" and that her friend was horrified after discovering the truth.
She then said they had "thoroughly washed" their hands once they discovered it was a sex toy, even though two of them did not touch it.
Funny Reactions To Jane's Discovery
People had hilarious reactions to Jane's glass object. One of them asked, "So are we calling this a** glass?"
Another said, "It's a stopper, alright, but think orifice, not bottle."
Someone else, who was clearly trying to make fun of Jane, suggested that it was a chess piece: "Looks like she found a knight. Maybe the others will turn up soon. It's a shame when a set gets split apart."
The post soon had hundreds of likes and comments. In the end, the group's moderator had to turn off comments to keep things under control.
