United States - January 24th, 2007: More and more it seems that masturbation and sex toys are becoming common ground in court, whether as a means of evidence, or sometimes being the main topic of the case.
This time it was a case in Pittsburgh, when a local porn star called Brianna Banks decided to fill a federal lawsuit against a masturbation toy manufacturer. Brianna claims that the masturbation toy company used molds of her genitals to make 10 unauthorized masturbation toys, which would be advertised to appeal for men who wanted to know how Brianna feels like.
The genital molds were made actually to produce masturbation toys, but the problem is that Brianna signed an agreement saying that only 2 products can be made. She asks for more than $75.000 in damages. On the other hand, the company’s lawyer claims that such suit is just an attempt for Banks to get her name in the spotlights over a masturbation toy case.
