Have you actually been in Diamond Adult World?


Your cover story from a few weeks ago about Steve Diamond called “Sex in your city� (Dec. 9-16) should have more accurately been given the title “Misogyny in your city.�

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 “sex� — unless your definition of sex is cruel degradation and dehumanization. A sadly typical example of one of the thousands of “sex� videos is “Anally Ripped Whores.�

Two more examples are “Throat Gaggers #5,� and “Zero Tolerance — No Holes Barred.�

So sure, I agree 100 percent with an earlier letter writer that “sex is normal and natural.� Let’s just stop pretending that “adult stores� are selling “sex.� Let’s start being honest, and start facing the harsh reality that is continually being glossed over — that “adult� stores are profiting off of ever-increasingly sick and glorified woman-hating.
