VIENNA, Austria – Four urinals shaped like a woman's mouth have been auctioned off online for a total of more than $7,070, Austrian media reported Sunday.
The urinals, formerly located in a public toilet near Vienna's national opera, feature thick, lipsticked lips, a set of teeth and a bright red tongue. Last month, politicians demanded their removal, calling them sexist and inappropriate.
In an online auction on eBay, the used urinals went to two bidders for a total of $7,180, the Austria Press Agency reported. The identities of the new owners have not been disclosed but APA reported that all four urinals will stay in Austria.
Gerhard Neuhold, owner of the toilet's operator, said he was satisfied with the auction but that the result was at the low end of what he had expected.
