Leaving Your Toys Behind?

Envy Envy
I ask this as a serious question, because I really do wonder what one would do.

I work in a motel. You'd be surprised of the things people leave behind: weapons, drugs, clothes (namely underwear), shoes, glasses, etc. I have even found sex toys.

Just recently I found a rabbit vibrator, still in the box, left on the nightstand in a check out room, used condom wrappers scattered around it. It was this toy: link

The funny thing is, it was a guy who rented the room... and he was a regular guest, too. But I don't think he ever came to pick it up from lost and found.

So my question is this: if you left a sex toy in a motel/hotel, would you go to the front desk and tell them and try to get it back? Or would you leave it behind? Has it ever happened to you guys before and what did you do?

I think I'd try to get it back. Toys are expensive and the last thing I would want to do is leave it behind. The front desk would already know I was in that room anyway, and when they find items they bag them and put a ticket on it with limited personal information, so what's the real harm in coming to pick it up? Sure slight embarrassment, but I'd rather come and get it than have them stare at it for 30+ days before it's tossed.

If I could describe it discretely I would go back for it. I think the only toys I would consider taking on a trip are Ella or a Hardwood dildo. For those I could say I left something in a white satin bag or purple velvet bag without having to say I left a dildo in my room.

BTW, I've heard that if you ever lose your cell phone charger, go to any large hotel and say you think you left it in your room. They will present you with a box filled with chargers and you can find the one for your phone. Goth can confirm whether this is true.

Generally it's bagged separately, tagged with a room number, name of the person who rented the room, and the date. I believe it's only taken and put in a box after the 30 day period in case someone needs a charger. We're supposed to throw the stuff away and not keep anything, but it doesn't always happen.

I think it also depends on the managers and the way properties are run. We have a new manager and he's more strict on rules--the old one I had used to have the lost and found gone through after 30 days and people got their pick of items. This one just tosses it all and won't let anyone take anything, it's such a waste.

Our hotel has the box 'o' chargers but will ask you to confirm what room you stayed in/when before they'll allow you to take from it.

I'm not sure. I think I would check the room multiple times and make sure I got everything because I know how forgetful and unorganized I can be. It may depend on the price of the toy like if it was more than $20 or it could depend on how much I love it..if it was something discontinued I couldn't replace that I really wanted, I think I would go back for it. I'd probly bring a picture of the item if it wasn't stored in something. I could discreetly show it and have them look for it and ask them to discreetly bring it back to me? say if it was something like a cheap vibrating cock ring or pack of condoms I would probly just forget about it. Actually might ask that my stuff be mailed to me.

If it was something like my pokemon cartridge or salon shampoo or a book I'd get it back 100%

If it was either my favorite toy or a really expensive one, yes I would definitely suck up my pride and go ask the front desk for it. I figure most people wouldn't try to keep my used sex toy for themselves anyway.

It's not happened to me though... Well, not yet.

I would go back for it, for sure. Why not? They already know and, truly, sex toys just don't embarrass me anymore in the least.

I would DEFINITELY go back for it. If I spent my money on it, HELL YES I would go back for it. Especially if it's a favorite (which, if I'm traveling with it, it IS). I do not care about what they think of me, so it doesn't matter.

My girl left the first collar that I bought for her in a hotel room. We tried to go back for it, but they gave us this b.s. line that they didn't see it. I'll bet anything that it's still in that room. Made me really upset.

We don't travel often, but of the (less sexy items, like boots or clothes or kid toys) we've left in hotels or Bed and Breakfasts, they usually return the item to us, at their charge (or once, we were to pay the shipping, which wasn't a big deal) after a short phone call to let us know it's on it's way.

If I stayed in a place which didn't do this, yes, I'd go back for it. I'm not easily embarrassed, and I don't like losing things I spent good money on.

ok ya I would have to get my stuff back. I have to pinch my pennies even a couple condoms I should ask for but if I already left where I couldn't go back to the hotel for the condoms I won't bother to have them mailed to me I'd worry about heat or cold weather or any kind of damage to them I guess. I don't know I could bring myself to say can you mail those condoms to me LOL I'll just get some new ones. If the product was opened like lube I'd be thining wat if one of the workers borrowed a little..eww and where their hands were and that they were on the bottle. There are stupid disgusting people out there wat if someone used something I lfet behind?

This isn't talking about lubricant or condoms, though.

If the toy was relly important to me I would ask for it. Lube, condoms and toys that I could not steralize, I would just forget about.

I usually check really well before leaving, habit I got from my Dad when we used to stay in hotels often years ago..so I have never left anything behind but I think if I did I would go back for it, if it was something I couldn't afford to replace.

If I was traveling with it, it means I like it enough to travel with it, so yeah definitely. I don't have any embarrassment issues with sex toys, so its no biggie for me.

If it was an expensive toy or a favorite toy, I'd definitely be going back for it!

I always check to make sure I didn't leave anything. If I did forget it, if it was expensive or something I loved, I'd go ask for it back.

I also work in a hotel and the things people leave behind is amazing. I actually had a similar experience and the person did call and asked us to ship it to them. Ive been very amused with some of the things I've found but it definitely makes the job interesting.

depends on how expensive the toy was. I don't think I would be really embarrassed.

It depends on the toy... If it was something cheap that I dont use a lot, then maybe not. However, if it was one of my favorites or kind of expensive I would try to get it back if I could.

I know right?

One time when i first started my coworkers found a toy that moved up and down and had all these beads and it actually throbbed and such like a real cock. It was also fire engine red. Well the batteries were still in it so while in the bag, they took it to the laundry and pressed the buttons to see what it did, it was hilarious, all these grown older women staring at something that seemed so foreign, haha!

If I forget a cheap toy, say under $10, and very easy to replace, or something that I didn't like or that broke, I would abandon it. I have a vibrating cock ring that I could care less about and that's the only one of my toys I can see myself giving up.

Anything else more precious and I would suck it up and get it back.

Do you think if I said to them "I left a personal item in my room" that would be enough information for them to get it back to me? Especially if they had already cleaned my room, shouldn't they know what I'm talking about?
But now that I think about it I wouldn't be very embarassed asking about a whip, a leash, a collar... I would be trying all sorts of language tricks to keep from saying the words "dildo" or "vibrator" at all costs.

The hotel I work in is on the New England coast and a small family run business and most of the people I work with are men, the owner his son and brother. So if they find something like panties, bra's, toys, pretty much anything "girly" they come running to me to get it lol.

I know with the hotel I work in if you were to call us and say I left something in my room when I checked out, and gave us the dates of your stay and your room number we would know if you had left anything at all. We make a point of checking under all of our beds and opening all drawers to make sure nothing's been left behind.
