Ghislaine Maxwell jury shown ‘twin torpedo sex toy’ and Epstein’s massage table

The jury in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial was shown a 'torpedo sex toy' obtained from the mansion of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Officers seized the key evidence, which includes a ‘Twin Torpedo’ sex toy and a massage table from the property in Florida in 2005.

Palm Beach officer sergeant Michael Dawson told the court that officers were specifically looking for massage equipment and sex toys when the warrant was issued on Epstein’s property.

As reported by the New York Post, he said: “We were looking for massage tables. We were looking for massage oils. We were looking for sex toys.”

An image of a photo of a brown cardboard box was then shown to the jury, which showed a pair of sex toys, called ‘Twin Torpedo’.

Earlier in yesterday’s trial, Maxwell stood just 10 feet away from a dark green massage table as an officer examined it in the middle of the courtroom.

Former Palm Beach Police officer Gregory Parkinson was questioned by Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey during the trial yesterday as he wore gloves to examine the table.

Once he had confirmed the table was the same one seized from Epstein's mansion, Parkinson told the court it was in the “second floor south bathroom”.

The demonstrations came after Epstein's former house manager, Juan Alessi, testified on Thursday that Epstein was receiving about three massages every day by the time he left his job in 2002.

Alessi called Maxwell the "lady of the house" and would often direct him to schedule Epstein's massages.

During the trial this week, an accuser, who was identified to the Manhattan court as ‘Jane’, spoke of how Epstein liked to use vibrators.

Jane testified that she frequently massaged Epstein at his Palm Beach home while she was a teenager in the mid-1990s.

She told the court Epstein would touch her sexually during the encounters while alleging Maxwell sometimes participated, as reported by Reuters.

Jane, whose real name was kept in a directory of Epstein's masseuses, also said she was sometimes paid.

Maxwell is on trial accused of charges of sex-trafficking girls as young as 14 between 1994 and 1997.

She denies the charges and her defence team insists she is being made a "scapegoat" for Epstein's crimes.

Maxwell's trial is expected to resume on Monday and last into January.
