A pair of sex toys, shaped as gigantic wooden phalluses, that are thought to be more than 200 years old were sold for 3,600 pounds at an auction.
An anonymous bidder bought the wooden items sold at an auction in Brentwood, Essex.
Staff at Brentwood Antiques Auction described the sex toys as "extraordinary and exceptionally rare" and said they were probably French and dated back to the late 1700s.
"You might laugh, but it's a good opportunity for investment," the Scotsman quoted auctioneer Wendy Wood as telling bidders.
"You won't see another one in a long time," she added.
Auctioneers listed the lot under "Erotica" and a catalogue description read: "Designed to please."
