Green dildo promises earth-friendly orgasms

The makers of a new marital aid that has gone on sale in Sweden have said that their dildo is the most environmentally-friendly on the market.

Made from recycled plastic and metal, "Earth Angel" is charged by turning the specially adapted key in its base. Four minutes of hand-turning is said to give 30 minutes of intense vibrations - saving money on new batteries.

And the good news for environmentalists is that "Earth Angel" has now reached Sweden.

Anna Sundström at erotic store Afrodites Apotek in Stockholm believes that it will be a big hit. "Many of our customers are environmentally conscious and often say 'no' to a plastic bag. It saves the environment when you don't use batteries," she said to Expressen.

The only downside to the Irish-made sex toy is the price tag. At 1,050 kronor ($153), it costs twice as much as a normal dildo. But, as it's self-charging, there's no need to buy expensive replacement batteries.
