Deck the halls with balls and dildos … that’s how it goes, yes? No?

Chic, Prada-clad citizens of Milan got a pleasurable surprise when a Christmas tree on Via del Como was decorated with 100 pink vibrators and other sex toys. The mastur-minds behind this stunt were the people promoting MySecretCase, a new website specializing in sex toys for women.

Apparently the company did receive proper approval from the local council, but when the council saw the tree it was all like “wait, what???

“The nature of the project was not fully made clear in the request we received for authorisation” a note from the Milan council said. “On the basis of this discrepancy, we have begun the process of cancelling the project.”

One council member said the tree made people “uncomfortable.” Can’t imagine why: explaining vibrators to children sounds like great fun!

Around a hundred vibrators for passers-by to “see and touch” adorned the tree, while representatives from the company were on hand to explain how to use the various toys. Photos of its installation were posted on MySecretCase’s Facebook page, accompanied by the hashtag ‘#sexyxmas’.

#branding! #marketing! #sex!

This stunt really had it all. Too bad the squares at the council are ruining the fun. We heard a rumor they’re also canceling Christmas.

The most offensive part isn’t the unorthodox ornaments, it’s the colors. Pink? For Christmas? Seems they took a page out of Mariah Carey’s book, which is great when it comes to music and horrific when it comes to aesthetics.
