Nutter groups win legal action against a Paris sex shop on grounds of proximity to a school

A Paris sex shop owner has been found guilty in court of selling porn within 200 yards of a school.

The controversial Love Shop prosecution resulted from complaints by two nutter groups. The National Confederation of Catholic Family Associations (CNAFC) and the CLER Love and Family Association complained that shop manager Nicolas Busnel was pushing porn.

Busnel said he sold dildos and vibrators but said that they shouldn't be considered porn. He maintained that limiting sex toy shops to areas outside of 200 yards of educational institutions would mean the only places they could be sold would be cemeteries, parks and on train tracks.

But the court disagreed and found Busnel had violated porn laws because his central Paris shop was only 100 yards from a local elementary school.

The good news for the shop owner was that the court only ordered him to pay 1 euro in damages to the associations as a symbolic sign. However even the nominal judgement may put an end to the business lest they get prosecuted again.

Nutter groups start legal action against a Paris sex shop on grounds of proximity to a school

The manager of a French shop selling sex toys has gone on trial to determine whether he is breaking the country's pornography laws by selling his products within 200m of a school.

The manager of the Love Shop, Nicolas Busnel, is facing the action after two nutter Christian groups filed complaints that his shop is within 90m of an elementary school.

The two plaintiffs, the National Confederation of Catholic Family Associations and the CLER Love and Family association, also are asking for EUR10,000 each in damages.

Busnel denies that the Paris shop, at 69 rue Saint Martin, sells pornography and says its products are simply of an erotic nature.

His lawyer, Richard Malka said that limiting the sale of sex toys within 200m of educational institutions would mean the only places they could be sold would be cemeteries, parks and on train tracks .

The trial opened with Malka making a motion for the case to be dismissed as unconstitutional, but it was rejected by the court.
