A woman swiftly discovered the risks of online shopping after an 'extra girthy' sex toy she ordered arrived in very tight wrapping, before being handed over to her an elderly post woman who was 'gripping it at the balls'. Not going to be easy to live that one down.
Holly-Ann Powell, 19, found the £7 dildo on Wish.com and decided to treat herself, but when it arrived the married model couldn't believe how it had been packaged and was mortified when her elderly postie held it 'like a sword' before handing it over.
The closely-wrapped item clearly showed the shaft and two fake testicles.
Holly-Ann, from Eastbourne, said: "Everybody's probably had [an online shopping] disaster but this tops them all.
"The post lady knocked on my door and she'd only introduced herself to me the other day.
"She's a lovely, older lady. She walked up the steps this morning and I thought, 'It can't be...?'
"Then she handed it over to me. She was bright red.
"My dog was barking so I just looked at her, shouted 'thank you' really quick and shut the door.
"The worst part about it was she was holding it by the balls, and you could clearly tell there was a dildo in there. She was holding it like a sword when she handed it to me.
"She definitely knew what it was. I wanted the floor to swallow me up."
Holly-Ann stumbled across the sex toy after a couple of pals told her that e-tail website Wish.com was cheap as chips.
"I was talking to my girlfriends about toys because my husband doesn't always do or want what I want," she said.
"I do some modelling online, it's quite discreet modelling. He doesn't want everybody knowing his wife does explicit modelling online.
"Obviously doing the sort of work we do online, you have to have toys and props.
"I started to think, 'Gosh, these toys are a bit expensive.' They can be really expensive in other stores.
"Some of the girls I know said, 'Have you tried Wish?' For a six-inch dildo [on other websites] that is extra girthy, it can be £50.
"I found this dildo for £7 on Wish.com. It looked exactly like the more expensive one, so I decided to give it a go. I thought, 'What's the worst that could happen?'
"My friends are finding it absolutely hilarious. Quite a lot of people have asked me for the link, actually. Some people have said it's absolutely horrifying, while others have said, '10/10 for the detail.'"
