Whoever broke into Shelly Pasternak's Hyundai on Friday afternoon in northern Tel Aviv and walked away with two metallic suitcases is now stuck with 40 vibrators, in an assortment of colors, sizes and vibration options.
Pasternak (32) is a known sexologist who presents a regular sex segment on several television channels. Among her other activities surrounding sex and sexuality she also hosts workshops with 'adult games' and lectures at bachelor and bachelorette parties. She has appeared before hundreds of women and dozens of celebrities (Pnina Rosenblum's pajama party, Michal Yanai's bachelorette party) who all received useful bedroom tips from Pasternak.
On Friday afternoon Pasternak's parked car was broken into in the Zehala neighborhood in northern Tel Aviv, and two metallic suitcases were stolen from it. The cases contained the equipment Pasternak uses for her lectures and presentations, including dozens of vibrators and games she developed for the house parties she's invited to.
"Whoever stole the two suitcases from the car must have thought they contained expensive audio equipment as they're identical to those types of cases," Pasternak told Yedioth Aharonoth on Monday. The sexologist arrived at the Zikhron Ya'akov police department and filed a complaint, saying that the cases included no less than 40 vibrators, massage oils, a whip, dildo, blindfold, Chinese balls and handcuffs.
"Never mind the thousands of shekels I invested in my exceptional vibrator collection and the valuable time I spend in developing the games in the suitcase," says Pasternak, "but my accounting books were also there with crucial information."
Pasternak pleads with the thieves to return her belongings. "What I'm most concerned about are the receipts. Some people are uncomfortable buying sex toys in stores so after my performance I also sell equipment and the names of the buyers are on the receipts."
The police still haven't started searching for the suitcases, only on Monday did the Zikhron Ya'akov police send the complaint over to the Yarkon precinct (responsible for the Tel Aviv area).
