Your cover story from a few weeks ago about Steve Diamond called â€œSex in your cityâ€? (Dec. 9-16) should have more accurately been given the title â€œMisogyny in your city.â€?
Awhile ago I personally took a lengthy tour of Diamond Adult World in Grover Beach as research for an article I was writing, and I can say for a fact that the majority of the products there were not about â€œsexâ€? â€” unless your definition of sex is cruel degradation and dehumanization. A sadly typical example of one of the thousands of â€œsexâ€? videos is â€œAnally Ripped Whores.â€?
Two more examples are â€œThroat Gaggers #5,â€? and â€œZero Tolerance â€” No Holes Barred.â€?
So sure, I agree 100 percent with an earlier letter writer that â€œsex is normal and natural.â€? Letâ€™s just stop pretending that â€œadult storesâ€? are selling â€œsex.â€? Letâ€™s start being honest, and start facing the harsh reality that is continually being glossed over â€” that â€œadultâ€? stores are profiting off of ever-increasingly sick and glorified woman-hating.
