There are hundreds of dildos hanging from the power lines in Portland, Ore., according to a Monday Reuters report, and it looks like no one knows what the phallic sex toys are doing there.

A number of people have witnessed the dildos in recent days, including large white and bright orange sex toys, which are tied together in pairs. Spokeswoman for the Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement Lisa Leddy told Reuters Monday that the department has received a number of reports over the dildos.

According to a spokesperson for the public utility Portland General Electric, the rubber sex toys do not pose a fire hazard.

Reuters points out local Portland residents have posted pictures of the colorful dildos online, swaying in the wind above major commercial streets.

Lucila Cejas Epple, a Portland resident, said she first saw the dildos at a neighborhood street fair last weekend.

"You could spot them in several intersections and you could see all sorts of reactions to them," she told Reuters. "Some would blush, others would laugh, and most would take photos."
