A window display featuring Barbie and Ken in BDSM poses is turning heads in a Ottawa, Canada, this week, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Wanda Cotie, owner of Wicked Wanda's Adult Emporium, said a customer and local artist had approached her with the idea of doing a BDSM doll holiday display:
[She] likes to do Barbie Stuff. She has a barbie fetish I guess, and she asked if she could do the window.
While never actually displayed in their full, nude plastic glory, Ken and Barbie are shown engaged in whipping, bondage and oral and anal sex. It as, according to the Ottawa Sun's Denis Armstrong, about as raunchy and hard core as doll play can get.
A few nutters have been wound up by the display but Portia Young, an employee at the sex shop, said that many people had voiced approval of the display. She said:
Our general response from the public has been positive. Most people are highly amused, and many have stopped in just to say how much they appreciated it.
However in response to a few complaints, the bottom part of Wicked Wanda's window has been covered so as to prevent children from being able to see the display.
