Stockholm, Sept 29 (ANI): A hotel in Stockholm, Sweden, which offers guests complimentary sex toys in their rooms, has been criticised by the police for "glorifying" the sex trade.
According to the Svenska Dagbladet daily, the Berns Hotel in central Stockholm wanted to expand the range of items it included in the room price.
Besides the standard coffee and tea, minibar drinks, and bedside bible, it also included sex toys such as handcuffs, stay ups and a vibrator.
"The hotel is trying to glorify something that we are working to de-glorify," the Local quoted Tom Eckerling at Stockholm police as saying.
But the hotel has no plans of doing away with the sex toys after getting a positive response from guests, which it claims is made up of a chic fashion, art and music clientele.
Though it did say that taking into account the needs of different groups, it usually removes the items from hotel rooms used by families with children.
Stockholm police have for some time been working closely together with the city's hotels to try to stamp out prostitution.
And despite the criticism over the innovative assortment, neither Eckerling, nor Berns Hotel reception manager Andreas L'Estrade, expect the sex toys to attract prostitution.
"There is nothing ugly with sex, that is something that we want to show," L'Estrade added. (ANI)
