Gay Couple, Christopher Bridgemann and Martin Borger, Sues Airlines for Taping Dildo to Outside of Baggage

A gay couple, Christopher Bridgemann and Martin Borger, has sued Continental Airlines for emotional distress.

The couple claims that baggage workers removed a sex toy from their luggage and taped it to the outside of the suitcase, reports SF Weekly.

Bridgemann and Borger flew from Costa Rica to Houston on May 21, 2011. The men rechecked their bags in Houston before flying to Norfolk, VA.

At the baggage claim in Norfolk, they discovered that a dildo had been removed from one of their bags, covered in a greasy substance and taped to the top of their bag, reports the Daily Mail.

The couple is suing for severe emotional distress and punitive damages.

A spokeswoman at United, which owns Continental, said she would have to look into it before responding.
