I think this is totally wrong. Nobody is forcing anybody to shop at this store. I cannot believe that in the 21st century that people want to tell me what I can or cannot purchase. They don't allow anyone into the store who is under 21 and as an tax paying adult I want to shop where I choose to.

I got a big kick out of the detectives purchasing videos and taking them home to view them and then RETURNING to purchase MORE!! Sounds like the deputies in Spotsy and the massage parlor!! I bet the detectives fought over those assignments!! Quite frankly, most people wouldn't have even known there was such a store if it wasn't in the news so much...

I think they have some very nice lingerie....

To the Va State legislature and the people who have a problem with their own sexuality, as if an adult shop that only allows people of the proper age to patronize it is a threat to anyone or anything, please, please stay in Virginia. Don't ruin anybody elses State by brining the narrow mindedness there.

People need to remember these things when standing there at the voting machines. We dont need aholes like this making up the laws of the land. So change it with your votes.

I am no longer a resident of Stafford county as I live overseas, but I still vote here and I visit frequently. I was looking for an adult toy store in the area and I could not believe that the nearest store was in Woodbridge or Richmond!! Then when I looked into it further and found the articles about the lawsuit against Phermoans I was completely appalled. I agree with every one of the statements listed above. There is a need in Stafford/Fredericksburg/Caroli ne for a safe, classy, legitimate, tax paying business that sells adult toys, videos and novelties. Sometimes you just have to run out and grab something...not wait for mail order or drive 30 miles.

Meanwhile, I'll be spending my money in Florida, California or Vegas where they are more accommodating. The warehouses they have there are a shopper's paradise!

And this is why I shop online for all my adult items. If only I could move my whole family out of uptight, sex hating Virginia, I would.

I find it so hard to believe that we are not outraged enough to bring charges of fraud waste and abuse against the perps of this entire lawsuit. They are the ones that need to be charged and thrown in jail for spending our tax dollars against this drivel. What is this, friggin' China for crying out loud? I think they even have more freedom in this area than we do. How sick is that. How sick is it when a few conservatives can cause this kind of havoc.

I find the obscenity law in itself, obscene. And, under the obscenity law, any news station reporting on the obscenity law is distributing obscenity to children using public means. I think all who finds this obscenity law obscene should do something about it and bring a lawsuit against the State of Virgina.

Seriously, if someone can sell guns and another cannot sell sexual materials, something's seriously fucked up.

Personally, I feel that anything pertaining to acts of sex either alone, coupled or between three or more ADULTS (absolutely nothing involving children under 18) that takes place in the privacy of one's home, IS NONE of any State's or politician's buisness.

I lived in Virginia for three years, and I will say after a while you could not help but to be reminded of Salem's witch burning in the 1600's.

I find it very troubling that the our government has time to deal about this shit but they do not have any time to deal with real problems we are facing such as the that they are taking this country to bankruptcy,
We hear more about the gay rights issues instead of how to get this economy up and running,
This is very fucked up, they all should be sentenced for life in prison.
Well we all know that our Government like to stick its fucking noses into everyones asses not just here locally but all around the world.
We ass the people must stand up and stop this Corruption!
Marry Christmas, and keep having that good old LOVE!!! Give your partners the best they deserve!!
God Bless you all my friends!!! FREE AMERICA.
