LELO, a Swedish sex toy company, lost tens of thousands of condoms after thieves broke into their Las Vegas warehouse over Memorial Day weekend, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The thieves actually took two trips to pull in their impressive haul. They first struck on Friday night, when they entered and absconded with boxes containing 30,000 condoms, reports CNN Wire. The next morning, they returned and rammed a vehicle through a delivery door, leaving with boxes containing $15,000 in sex toys. According to CNBC, 33 prostate massagers and 48 Kegel exercising aids were among the goods that were taken (what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, amirite?)

LELO released a YouTube video (below) that includes surveillance footage of the burglary, as well as more detailed information about the goods that were stolen (those prostate massagers we mentioned are actually "HUGO Vibrating Butt Plugs," if we're to split hairs here). In a blog post titled "You Might Question Our Security, but You Can’t Argue With Our Protection," the company said that the warehouse had been "viciously burglarized by what must surely be the horniest criminals in world history. Horniest and, oddly, most socially responsible."

According to CNBC, LELO's products can be found at Brookstone (!) among other stores.

LAist called the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to ask if they had any idea what our fiendish thieves were intending with their loot, but no one was immediately available for comment.
