An Australian law student was caught going through airport security with her deceased boyfriend’s ashes hidden in a portable sex toy, she said in a viral TikTok video.
Sarah Button, 23, was about to board a flight in the United Arab Emirates while wearing a butt plug in her late lover’s ‘favorite spot’ when security officials triggered the alarm, she said.
“They took me and my friend aside without much explanation,” she said, adding that she was forced to call her father for help from the Australian Embassy. .
Button, whose Tiktok images garnered 4.9 million views on Thursday, said her late boyfriend gave her the sex toy as a gag gift before he died.
“The intention was initially a joke because he had spent so much time there and it was his favorite place,” she said. “Honestly, it’s the funniest thing he’s ever done, I’ll spend my whole life laughing about it, which is definitely better than crying.”
She added, “I also love being able to take him with me to places we never dreamed of going.”
But airport security officials, who may have assumed the device was a weapon, weren’t laughing.
“I explained what it was but there was a female worker within earshot of this conversation which led to back and forth between us and the male managers didn’t like the vulgarity I was using to explain “Button said.
