I can't believe the packaging of this!

So, we all know not to stick things in our butts that don't have a flared base/retrieval cord. I was really shocked to see the packaging of these balls said "Perfect for Vaginal and Anal Pleasure." I only noticed this when we got them in my store.



You think Cal Exotic would be on top of this.

This is really surprising. Cal Exotics is a winner for annoyingly putting "For external use only" on every single product. So this one they say is ok for anal use? Wow.

And it even says it on our product page, too. I think that needs to come off or be changed ASAP, seeing as Eden is known for safety information. Not a single one of the reviews says not to stick them in your butt, either.

Ohmygosh....I hope nobody uses them anally.

Uhhhh, I would definitely not use these anally. It's pretty weird that it says that on the package.

Huh. That's a pretty bad mistake to make.

None of the customer comments mention that either, hmm.

A support ticket is usually quicker at accomplishing this than the forums are.

But yeah. I wouldn't put those in my butt.

Wow what an emergency room trip waiting to happen. Couldn't the company get sued over something like that for medical costs? Even possibly for how embarrassing it would be to explain to the doctor why you have balls in your butt? Seems like a big liability to have that on the packaging...

They can definitely be sued for this because it is a marketing defect. And it wouldn't be just medical costs, I think you could make a case for punitive damages for outrageous conduct since it is standard practice to inform customers not to use anything anally that doesn't have a flared base or a retrieval cord.

Wow...it's a good thing that someone like you found this, because what if someone bought these in the store and didn't know any better as a beginner or something??? Geeze nice catch!

Hello everyone! Well, you guys are absolutely correct! Not going to make any excuses...all of our other recommended anal toys have a retrieval cord or a tapered/flared base shape. We are changing the packaging and thank everyone for bringing this to our attention. The thing that concerns us is that these have been on the market for almost 6 years and this is the first it was brought to our attention! Sometimes, you get so deep into the forest that you don't see the trees...definitely a poor choice of words on the header tab.

We appreciate the very vocal response and helpful feedback...just goes to show, everyone makes a mistake now and again. Thankfully, this was really the exception, and not the rule! Let's not lose our objectivity based on one mistake....remember, CalExotics pioneered everything that is now commonplace....recharg eable, waterproof, remote control, solar powered, phthalate free, and COLORS...in 1993, the choice was ivory or black! Susan changed that, while still competing with the "boys club." Please don't judge us so harshly based on a header card on one item!

To tell the truth, we weren't even aware of those words, and we thank you all very much for bringing this to our attention. So sorry!

I feel like I saved the day!

Thank you for paying attention. I figured there was an honest mistake there. Accidents happen and I won't let this change my opinion of the company overall. I'm glad that it's getting handled in such a great way and that you guys actually listen to us.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I can imagine that with all the thousands of items you guys produce that some sort of mislabeling of a product was bound to happen at least once. At least you guys are on it.

I'm really impressed with the response here, thank you!

I've loved CalExotics since I got my Platinum jack rabbit a few years ago ahhh... unfortunately it couldn't handle any more of me after 2 years LOL... oh how I miss it. Really haven't found a better rabbit for me since

Anyway, thanks again for the response and changing the packaging!!!

I agree with this a whole lot. I had my Platinum Jack Rabbit that I loved to death before it bit the dust two years later. Poor guy. I have to say that I haven't found anything that comes close to it after trying several different things out there. All the other ones made me miss that one even more.

*rabbit twins*

We're going to have to just pitch out the dough one day and just get another one. I'm convinced that rabbit and I were made for each other....
