Saudi Man Adds to the Family Jewels, Literally
What do you get for the man who has everything—or almost everything? If you're coming up short on ideas for a man who comes up short in other areas, you could take a cue from a Saudi man from Jeddah. The gentleman from Jeddah has placed an order with the Canadian medical device manufacturer X4 Labs for an 18-carat-gold penis enlarger encrusted with 40 diamonds and several rubies. "This male health accessory is the most expensive traction device ever produced and will likely become a historical benchmark for the adult novelty industry," X4 Labs said in a statement. While most penis enlargers are made of stainless steel and retail for approximately $400 (pictured right), this bejewelled medical device will run the buyer $50,000. It will be delivered via armored car in October.
And yes, it is a medical device. It has to be because Saudi law prohibits the purchase and use of sex toys. Of course, due to the gentleman's severe stainless steel allergy, he had to upgrade to the 18-carat-gold version. X4 Labs hopes that this may be the beginning of a trend. They now offer custom design services to all of their clients. Matt West, a product coordinator with the company, said that he's "convinced that there is a demographic that is willing to pay for lavish medical devices for their private areas... to pay good money to spoil themselves." So after you get that special man in your life a solid gold, jewel-encrusted penis enlarger, what's next? How about some confidence? In any case, given the cruelty of genetics and heredity, this latest addition to the family jewels will undoubtedly become an heirloom.
