The Christmas tree installed on Milan’s Corso Como had some people amused, others outraged.

Instead of regular decorations, the tree displayed several sex toys, including pink and purple vibrators. The tree went on display on one of Milan’s liveliest streets for the launch of an online sex shop, MySecretCase.

However, the Christmas tree didn’t stand there for long. The city of Milan ordered its removal. The official reason was that the company had not clearly specified what the decorations would be and therefore the authorization to occupy public space was revoked. A spokesman for the city said initiatives of this kind can make people feel embarrassed.

What do you think of the tree - and of the city’s decision to remove it?
