1) you can give in writing to return parcel to the sender and that you don't want personal hearing
2) in such a case sex toy would not be confiscated and penalty may not be imposed upon you
If you are not submitting satisfactory reply or you disclaim the parcel item and would give your consent to return it, the authorities may return the same to the sender, or if your still want to contest their legal action, the authorities, if not convinced by your reply and find that this contradicting the law or rules, they may confiscate the item.
