Erotic City...

Sex Shops in the Czech Republic

Whilst sex shops in the Czech Republic still retain a sort of taboo, both customers and shopping centre owners are beginning to perceive them as interesting additions to the high street.

The market for erotic goods has made huge progress in the last twenty years. Whereas previously it was associated primarily with porn tape rentals and men prevailed amongst their customers, these days the product range is oriented more towards cosmetics, erotic lingerie, pheromone perfumes, massage oils, erotic aids and toys. The clientele has changed dramatically as well. Women or couples account for 80 percent of customers nowadays, says Ivan Michnevic from Cushman & Wakefield's Retail Team.

However many landlords still refuse to let shops selling erotic goods into their centres, for various reasons. The most common reasons cited are concerns about the response of customers or adjacent shop owners. With some centres, this may also stem from their codes of conduct that preclude such ranges of goods.

International sex shop companies have had little impact in the Czech Republic. There is only one firm in our country that has been capable of building a network of shops all over the country under the Erotic City brand. Its competitors are individual shops which, however, are not networked. At this point, we have no knowledge of any international chain preparing to come to the Czech Republic, says Ivan Michnevic.

Erotic City has 75 shops in the Czech Republic today, 11 of which are in shopping centres. For the future, the company plans on further expansion into shopping centres in the Czech Republic as well as Slovakia.

I am convinced that the Erotic City concept in shopping centres is decent and does not agitate anyone. We have encountered no negative responses from landlords or centre management in the shopping centres where our outlets are located, says Vladimir Jelinek, Development Director of City Relax, the operator of the Erotic City shops.

Strippers in Ontario Canada may be required to be fingerprinted for their jobs if a controversial proposal is approved by Niagara Regional Police.

The police service, which licenses more than a dozen professions in the municipalities around  Niagara Falls, has been considering the plan for several years.

If implemented, mandatory fingerprinting would be enforced for all current regional licensed professions, including strippers, strip club owners, tow truck, limousine, shuttle bus and cab drivers.

Diary: Nutters Do Their Bit to Publicise Melbourne Sexpo...

Advertising posters vandalised

Sexpo
Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia
24-27th November 2011.

Two Sexpo billboards have been vandalised in the run up to this month's sexuality lifestyle show in Melbourne. A large banner across a freeway and a standard billboard were both slashed with a sharp object on Wednesday night amid the chaos of the storm front that hit Melbourne.

Sexpo organisers have replied to the attacks in a Christian manner by turning the other cheek and offering the perpetrators a free stand to publicise their beliefs to Sexpo patrons.

Australian Sex Party President, Fiona Patten, said that when freedom of speech and expression was under attack the best response was one that involved offering more freedom rather than less. We will not prosecute those who damaged the signs and there will be no reprisals, only the chance for these people to increase their free speech opportunities , she said.

Ms Patten said that the attacks were indicative of a more intolerant Australia. Racial, sexual, religious and lifestyle intolerance are increasing in Australia as more politicians seek to stamp their personal views on the people they represent , she said. These attacks on sex and lifestyle choices by religious and feminist extremists are a concern for the future direction of Australia .

A proposal for a tax on porn sites that would benefit the local film business is gaining support in Hungary.

Laszlo Simon, member of parliament for the ruling center-right Fidesz party, has backed an initiative sponsored by the rival liberal LMP party to tax the local porn industry to generate revenue for the cultural fund that backs local arthouse pics.
