Hundreds of sex toys appear over Portland and no-one knows why

Hundreds of sex toys have appeared dangling from power lines in the state of Oregon – and residents are baffled.

A huge number of  orange and white rubber penises have appeared in Portland, Oregon, dangling from power lines across the city.

A spokesman for Portland General Electric told Reuters he did not believe the products posed a hazard – but their origin remains a mystery.

The sex toys appeared overnight on Tuesday, and Portlanders have documented the dildos descending on their city.

One tweeted: “So…help me out here. Are #dildos hanging from electrical wires a Portland thing? Or do people do this everywhere?”

Another added: “Way to go Portland you’ve made my day once again. Dildos on power lines. Priceless.”

Some suspect that the mysterious sex toys are some sort of publicity stunt, but local sex shop She Bop denied any involvement.

The store manager Amory Jane Rogers told Oregon Live: “It’s kind of cute that when people think of dildos, they think of us.”

She added: “At first I thought someone had a breakup and was trying to get rid of an ex’s possessions in a very dramatic way.

“When I heard this was happening in multiple places, I thought it was pretty weird.”

A mysterious statue of Satan sporting a large erect penis appeared in the city of Vancouver last September.
