Church groups oppose sex shop plan
A group representing about 1,000 of Houston’s more than 20,000 church members filed suit against the city Monday seeking a public hearing on whether to ban an adult bookstore that sells sex toys in public.
The proposed ordinance would take effect July 31, and would ban the sale of sex toys inside city buildings and on city streets and sidewalks, as well as in state-run sex toy stores, including some inside churches, which could see the proceeds of illegal sales.
State law pr더킹카지노ohibits sex shops from serving as sexual education centers, but it doesn’t extend to other types of services. The ordinance would require sex shops to keep a certain minimum minimum number of employees.
At issue are the sex toys, which can range in size from 2 inches to 3 inches, and can range in price from $10 to as much as $1,000. In some cases, the legal limit is $100.
The proposed ordinance would allow churches to hire adult workers to handle their sex shop operation, to manage the location and to supervise employees, and would ban the establishment of sex shop in all public buildings.
Supporters of the proposed ordinance point to the potential to create more jobs in the business and protect vulnerable 더킹카지노populations, arguing that the shop would be a valuable asset for the community. Opponents, on the other hand, point out that a sexual services store would be used for illegal sales of pornography, and argue that there are no safe sex practices in the library, and sex workers are exposed to violence and exploitation.
Bethany D. King, an attorney with Houston Legal Services Alliance, said a 바카라hearing before the City Commission would give the public a chance to ask questions and speak with members of the religious community.
The proposed ordinance would also create a hotline that could be contacted by individuals who wish to report violations.
The store is located inside Houston’s most popular public library. On its Facebook page, which encourages visitors to call ahead for a “safe” hour to book or use the restroom, the store says it is “an established business and a safe space to sell our customers sexual services.”
The store offers free condoms, and the website features recommendations on how to use them that include “don’t rub a guy right up there. It’s not OK.”
One Facebook user commented that while it might not sound like it will be popular with the sex trade, the store should remain on property because it’s “a safe space to sell sex. No condoms here
