    Arrow Is this legal?

    I went to the gas station today (Cirlce K) and I was paying when I looked over and saw pornography DVD's being sold on a rack right next to me. Not behind a curtain, not even behind the counter, but right there where every adult and child can see. And this was not soft porn either. There were so many of them! Is it legal to have it be out in the open like that?? I really don't think this is right

    I don't think it is... even here, in NY, such things are always separated to some secluded part of a shop or even covered...
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

    I don't know if it's legal here in FL. All I know is that it should be illegal in every state. Kids shouldn't be able to see that!

    In MN graphic media is sold behind the counter as well as on the open newsstand, usually at the top out of kids' reach. Some newsstands do have a separate room as well if they have the space.

    My feeling is that it's only sex. If you have to discuss what "that" is to your kids, be glad for the opportunity to talk to them if they should ask a genuine question. My parents never shied away from discussing anything when I asked a question. I feel people should put aside the religion fueled shame and stigma about sex, there is nothing inherently dirty or evil about the human body or sexuality. If it's a hard topic for you to consider, remember that even your saintly parents "did it" at least once, or else you wouldn't be here.

    This anti-sex movement seems to be akin to medieval superstition to me. The 'mystification' of sex appears to be the source of most sex-based psychoses and criminal behavior like **** and child molestation.

    As the old saying goes "I'd rather my child accidentally see two people making love than killing each other."

    I believe the stigma roots back to the idea that pagans once considered nudity and sex sacred and the monotheistic religions wanted to separate themselves from the pagans as much as possible. I think that's what it was, don't remember for sure though. It sure is interesting though. We're the only species that makes a big stink about nudity and sex.

    Yes, that's the pattern of our western Aristotelian world. The new establishments most often make the beliefs and values of the older religions evil or wicked, the old gods become the new devils.

    Enforcing the new worldview by flame and sword helps a lot too, as Dimka will surely point out sooner or later! lol!
