"Pornography and sex shops in general are bad for the community," says Rick Young, who's leading up the demonstration at a new store in Nassau County.

They say now that Adam & Eve has come to town, crime and other troubles will follow.


How exactly does a pornography store cause crime to occur?

It's Adam and Eve who are the troublemakers. I mean, they can't follow simple rules, much less the laws of our complex society.

It does? Are these people just making shiat up now?

"Porn contributes to... uh... terrorism!"

It would certainly make me a customer, if I lived anywhere near the place. I'd go in and buy a nice big dildo and wave at them as I came out.

I'm pretty undecided on this one. With the rise of the Internet can't you just be a pervert in the privacy of your own home? I'm sure all customers aren't creeps or sex offenders but why give them their own hangout spot?
 
2005-03-01 12:33:02 PM  
azmoviez if we don't give them this kind of hang out spot, they will be right back in the middle and high schools teaching classes.

Isn't it more fun to be a pervert with others? It's a group activity come on?

I wonder how many men go looking for women when they enter an adult shop?


Mmm... sex.

Why is it always unattractive people who hate porn?? I mean i'm no Sexy McSexinstien, but whenever i see pics of porn protesters they are always a little frightening to view while eating salsa...

Remember, in red states, doing things with sex toys behind closed doors is a "crime". Alabama outlawed sex toys.

It's the protesters that should be banned from having kids.
 
2005-03-01 12:46:43 PM  
I'm the first person to say that I enjoy watching porn but still, in public? We used to have porn theaters here in Phoenix and I can't even fathom something like that these days.

shame on you, that made me snort mtn dew.

who cares about the right-wing nutters? fark 'em if they don't know how to have a good time in bed.

Although, they're doing something right, if they can pop out 12 kids a lifetime.

props to the owner for seeing the value of attention

Nothing wrong with going to a sex store. You get to touch and feel the things before buying.

And it's all there in one place!

Now about the theaters... what's the point of seeing porn - getting all aroused and not being able to touch yourself?

Plus not having to worry about what some companies idea of "Discrete Packaging" means and have a giant orange box arrive that says "Can't Please Her? We Can!" "Bobs Enormous Phalics!"

You really shouldn't have those types of things delivered to your work place.

Although - I think my apt manager might look at me strange if I got a box delivered with SEX TOYS written all over it.

Thats the thing, define "Sex Toy". Women can use pretty much anything.

Our local adult-store king has pretty much the same attitude, he would be cool to his protestors and give them lemonade and cookies.

At least I'm assuming that was lemonade.

There is a correlation. I'll leave the question of causation to sociologists.

if you have nothing better to do then protest porn, please get the handgun out of your closet, go shoot your pastor, then yourself

THANKS MUCH!

pornography leads to beating..doesn't it?
 
2005-03-01 03:36:08 PM  
Adult stores are great for well adjusted, sexually secure people. My wife and I have gone to adult book stores and clubs and found it, um, stimulating. ;-)

The store owner is right; this is great advertising. There's been a few places I've gone to that I would have never known about if it wasn't for the "bad press." Every politico worth their salt will tell you the same thing... irony?

I've heard the same said about parks in residential communities, still don't see it though.

he should get a nice powerful garden hose and spray those protestors every single day. throw rotten vegetables at them as well.

it's amazing how the lassiez-faire crowd isn't so lassiez-faire when it comes to something that personally offends them.

Sweet jeebus. O'Neil Florida is merely a cross roads in the woods. These people are probably worried about folks driving in from Jacksonville (where titties & beer in the same bar is prohibited).
"Yep, can't have them city-folk driving through our sweet little town with their porn purchases tied to the roof of the ol' pick-em-up truck. Cause everybody knows that God created the truck roof to haul your deer home from the woods."

He you racist Asshats... Read the posting guidlines. Racist remarks aren't welcome

Hate speech: Criticism is not hate speech, but inflammatory comments directed at a particular ethnic group, sexual orientation, religion, etc. are unacceptable.

We want freedom to disallow people the freedom to visit adult bookstores. Yee-haw. I'm moving to Alabama.
 
2005-03-01 03:46:53 PM  
Hang on here... I just watch the video. And now I sort of agree with the protestors... no one said anything about this sex shoppe being in between a Quiznos and a Nassau golf store. Listen when I want to get some meat between my buns and polish my balls, I don't want to have to be looking at some freaky sex store. That's all I have to say.

The sale of them, not the use of them.

Hey humorless idjit, how about learning what tongue-in-cheek means. Despite what you may have heard, "Mexican (natives of Mexico) isn't a racist term.

2005-03-01 03:50:03 PM  
Yeah, this is one of those things that completely baffles me. We need to create a porn religion, though. Then since they're free to practice their religion and use their religion to oppress porn afficianados, we could fight back on equal, legal footing! Adult toy and bookstores could become Churches of the Horny Order, and ... and... it'd be magnificent!

/Okay, yeah, probably a bit far fetched. It'd be an interesting experiment, however.
//Imagine Horny Order communion...

While agree with your sentiment, you should be aware that "Mexican" is not a race...

It is an ethnicity, so the biggoted comments are unwelcome here.
