Adult toy prices to soar because of Brexit, company warns

"An extra £25 per parcel - this isn't a cost we can absorb"

By Jamie Tabberer

A sex toy business has warned it will have to charge an extra £25 ($32.20) for deliveries because of Brexit.

Which, of course, is a total pain in the…

Adult product company Godemiche issued a statement via its official Twitter page yesterday, warning of extra charges – “a cost we can’t absorb.”

“Up until now we have avoided talking about the United Kingdom leaving the European Union because nobody knows anything and we have been determined to deal with any problems that arise quickly and with little to no impact on you, our customers,” the statement reads (as per PN).

“After a recent discussion with DHL we can no longer not discuss important changes and impacts that are planned to happen in January.”

The company warns that due to “extra checks and restrictions” at borders, shipping will now cost an extra £17, in addition to the “European cost” of £25.

This means a butt plug that previously cost £14.99 will now cost around £56.99.

“We have a couple of creative ideas that we’re working on but there is one idea in particular that we really need your help with,” the statement continues. “We need your help identifying sex shops in your country, shops that you like, that you use, shops that you would love to see stocking Godemiche products.”

The UK voted to leave the European Union on Thursday 23 June 2016.
