Last summer I went to Europe with a friend who had to buy a vibrator in Amsterdam to replace her regular New Jersey vibrator. I'll skip the details about the hours and hours spent fondling various vibrators all over Amsterdam. The interesting part was coming back from Heathrow to New York.

When my friend's backpack was x-rayed in Heathrow the security officers saw something they didn't recognize. At this point I told my friend to go up to the security guard and tell him what it was to avoid being embarrassed.

"He should know what it is," she snapped back.

Of course we were pulled aside. Unfortunately, instead of an experienced officer we were questioned by the youngest employee in Heathrow.

My friend admitted to having a walkman and a camera (after some prompting from the guard).

"Is there anything else you have that requires batteries?" he asked.

"Oh, yeah. I bought a vibrator," my friend answered.

I turned around and walked away laughing hysterically.

"A what?"

"You know. A vibrator, a dildo -- for myself." my friend said, losing her temper at the officer. "You'd think you people would recognize these things and wouldn't have to embarrass me."

The poor guard was extremely embarrassed. I found the entire situation hysterical. And my friend -- well you can take the girl out of New Jersey, but you can't take the New Jersey out of the girl -- she was furious at the ignorance displayed by the security officer. She also learned her lesson and declared the vibrator on her customs form when she got back into the States.
