Twenty-nine-year-old Kara Thompson, who works as a mother-baby nurse, thought she had hit the jackpot when she scored a swanky-looking green velvet sofa.

Her husband, Myles, 30, runs a junk removal company so the item came at no cost.

But after placing the new seater in their children’s bedroom, the parents decided to research the true value of the mystery freebie.

They were shocked to find its true purpose: it was a bondage bed.

“My husband was downstairs looking it up on Google and realised what its intended purpose was,” Kara, from Nashville, Tennessee told What’sTheJam.

“We immediately took it out of their room.

“We were shocked!

“We always clean and check furniture before bringing it inside, but the logo for the sex couch was on the side.

“And [we] didn’t feel comfortable keeping something intended for that purpose in our children’s room.

“My husband picked it up from a job, he owns a junk removal company.

“We rarely keep items, usually we donate them to charities if they’re in good condition!”

After making the shocking discovery, Kara and Myles, immediately moved the sofa to their spare bedroom.

Kara said: “We haven’t decided what to do yet, as of now it’s in our guest room until we figure it out.

“[We told the kids] that we would get them another couch but they couldn’t use this one.”

Kara shared her experience on her Instagram (@karathebabynurse), warning people to look up items before accepting them.

Users have been left shocked, with the viral video receiving over 1.2m views and over 30,000 likes.

One person said: “Totally thought you were heading towards bed bugs or something and def not sex couches haha.” [sic]

“I never knew they made couches JUST for sex??? I feel so prude and innocent… UHM WHAT.” [sic]

Another person joked: “Here I thought the warning was going to be about recalls for safety or toxic materials,”

“That is NOT where I saw this story going took a sharp 180 °,” added another user.

Addie said: “I was pretty sure where this was going from the start. I can’t take in used soft furniture because I always assume someone has ya know… broken it in. Lol no thanks I’m good.” [sic]

Talking about the online reaction, Kara added: “Some people agree with us that it seems inappropriate to keep it in our kid’s room.

“Some people think we should just keep it and it’s not a big deal.

“I totally don’t mind sex furniture and glad it’s out there for people but we personally don’t want it in their room.

The good ole bed has never failed us yet personally so we don’t need it ourselves!”

The mum also uses her Instagram page to provide tips for new parents and has written a book ‘Why Didn’t I Learn all this Parent Stuff Sooner’.
