Maggie Gyllenhaal Shares (Sex) Toys

Share and Share Alike

There are some things you shouldn't share, even among friends. Sex toys spring to mind. Not so for Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The actress, who is currently starring in the new Victorian-era movie Hysteria, about the invention of the vibrator, received so many donations of 'joy toys' that she had no qualms about sharing the wealth with her gal pals.

"By the time I finished the movie I'd been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores," she said. "It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they'll take them for six months at a time."

The actress, who has gravitated toward quirky and unconventional roles, admitted she was drawn to Hysteria because she was interested in "female sexuality".

"I was curious about the invention of the vibrator. It's unusual when you read a romantic comedy where you're curious about what's going to happen. Basically I'm always looking for freedom, for a way to be free in my work."

Fess up. Have you ever lent or borrowed sex toys to/from a friend? Gross or no biggie?
