Appalling! Sex Therapist Gives Out Halloween “Fleshlight” To Children
By: Glen Jessie
A woman from the Somerton section of Northeast Philadelphia has been getting heat from surrounding neighbors after distributing sex toys known as “Fleshlights” to local trick-or-treaters.
Janine Wyland, a licensed sex therapist in Philadelphia, is defending her decision as an educationally beneficial gesture for children.
“Everyone’s stressing children’s health during Halloween by saying we should hand out more health conscious treats like carrot sticks and celery. But what’s healthier for children than learning about their sexuality.” said Wyland.
The “Fleshlight” is a brand of artificial vagina sex toy which is primarily marketed to heterosexual men as a masturbatory aid. It is named for the flesh-like material used in its inner sleeve, as well as the plastic case that houses the sleeve, which is fashioned to look like an oversized flashlight.
“It’s appalling to see someone in our neighborhood take what’s supposed to be a fun day for children and their families and interject their own parental philosophies,” says Patricia McNally whose son was a recipient of the Fleshlight.
“I can speak for most of the families on my block when I say that we’ll be skipping over her house next year,” McNally said.
Multiple calls were made to the police. A spokesperson said no charges have been filed against Wyland.
