A man in Canada took his ex-girlfriend to small claims court to get back his Hitachi Magic Wand
A tribunal ordered a B.C. woman to return one of the vibrators to her ex-boyfriend following a recent breakup. She’ll also have to give up two down pillows he bought to use during sleepovers at her place.
The decision hinged on whether the Magic Wand counted as a gift under Canadian law.
In the case of the vibrator, the man purchased it last fall and arranged for it to be delivered to the home of his girlfriend.
The tribunal decided it belonged to the man because “the man says the Magic Wand was never meant to be a gift. He provided text message evidence in which both parties referred to the Magic Wand as ‘his’ and where the respondent asked permission from the applicant before using it.”
The ex-girlfriend argued she was only asking for permission as a bit of role-playing fun.
As a result of the decision, the ex-girlfriend will have 30 days to return the Magic Wand. She’ll also have to pay $125 for tribunal fees.
