With Brazil’s Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s a busy time for that country’s sex shops. However, this week one customer decided not to pay for his gift. An armed man held up Brasilia’s Erotica Luxo store and stole, of all things, and 18 carat gold-plated vibrator that was priced at $4,000.

The armed robber reportedly entered the store, tied up the clerk and took the vibrator from its display case — nothing else, not even the charger, was taken. According to the store’s owner, Vanessa Baldini, the Swiss-made vibrator’s steel core makes it hard to remove the gold, and with no charger, “I really don’t know what he’ll do,” she told Brazil’s G1 News, “I’ll leave it up to his imagination.”
