France: Dildos to stimulate the French economy

The Eiffel Tower in Paris is an iconic landmark for many tourists around the world, and now also the inspiration for brand new sex toys, in the form of dildos. Its renowned phallic shape has been used to add a French twist for the company Plaisir de France, which has just launched a range of erotic toys called La Tour est Folle, meaning 'the tower is crazy', in a bid to compete with the Chinese, American and German brands.

Co-founder Sebastien Lecca, says: "Sex, life, love, death are a question - a universal question - and I am an artist and so I love a treat about this universal question as a live animal, what is the meaning of life, and so sex is a very nice question."

French customers and people around the world can now get their hands on rubber sex toys - designed to have what the makers say have few allergic reactions, with no fat, whale oil, screws, GMOs, nails or radioactive materials - manufactured entirely in France. Sebastien adds: "I hope that my Tour Eiffel will stimulate the French economy, yes of course, I hope."
