Tuesday was not a great day for the German airports.

On the same day a terminal at Frankfurt Airport was forced to evacuate after a whole family is not well screened, authorities were called in Berlin Schonefeld Airport after screeners mistook sex toys for potentially dangerous devices.

“Through an examination of the police about a piece of luggage, check-in Terminal D is currently limited,” the airport tweeted on Tuesday morning.

Federal police told Deutsche-Presse Agentur (DPA) that the luggage of the devices were found belonged to a couple of the 31-year-old travelers.

The male passenger who had the bag at first told the authorities in the “technical data” when the question is asked, possibly out of shame, according to CNN.

Terminal D was opened slightly more than an hour later, after the bag was deactivated by a bomb squad. The DPA report noted that there are not one, but several sex toys were found from the passengers and the luggage.
