3

A courier company has warned customers that it is still illegal to import sex toys into Trinidad and Tobago.

In correspondence to clients, E-courier Web Source is urging customers to think twice before purchasing sex toys online saying that the intimate devices fell under the Customs and Excise Division’s list of prohibited items.

“Please note that Customs will be inspecting all packages to ensure compliance with the law. As such, they can and will seize the items listed below and any other prohibited items.”

It said among the banned items are camouflage patterns, illegal drugs, cigarettes, honey, plants, seeds, soil and toy guns, including those with brightly coloured muzzles. Firearm holsters are also prohibited unless the importer has a valid firearm user’s licence.

The prohibition of sex toys falls under Section 45 (l) of the Customs Act, which barred the importation of “indecent or obscene prints, paintings, photographs, books, cards, lithographic or other engravings, gramophone records or any other indecent or obscene articles or matter”.

The Criminal Offences Act and Summary Offences Act also outlaws the distribution and sale of such illicit items.

  1. Not even for $1M would I set foot in that country of Trinidad and Tobago. Crime is their daily bread and lawlessness their favourite hobby.

  2. Backward country.
    How is a dildo obscene ?
    is the vagina and penis obscene also? If it is ok to carry a vagina and penis then the articficial copies should be legal also.
