A sex toy is an object or device that is primarily used to facilitate human sexual pleasure.
Such types of toys are in lot of demand in Philippines, and are sold openly by street vendors and sophisticated internet merchants as well.
The Lawmakers have realized that the increasing demand and sale of these toys is not that safe for the country. This may lead to the rise of sex-related crimes in the country.
Buhay party, Representatives Irwin Tieng and Mariano Michael Velarde introduced House Bill 4509 seeking to penalize the sale and production of sex toys in the country.
Once the measure is passed into law a person can be criminally liable if he is engaged in the distribution, sale, and production of such devices.
The measure proposed a fine of P30,000 (Dh700) for violators.
