I can't believe how many people are defending this shop of horrors. Has decency completely left our society?
I implore all of you who wrote positive responses to the shop to PLEASE search your hearts,(and remember your Christian teachings), and reflect on the true reason why our country and our world is in shambles. Have we all forgotten the morals our parents and grandparents taught us growing up? This shop has NO right to operate in our society. This, like liquor stores, tobacco and drugs are the seeds which once planted, can only yield pain, violence and yes, broken spirits. I will pray for all of you and the shop owner, who I am sure is also a good Christian, who may have just lost her way. God Bless You All!!

How can we, as the most developed nation in the world, be so backwards and uptight?

And why would you accept the opinions of church officials who have either denied their own sexuality, or worse, kept it in the closet and exploited the weak and helpless?

No one was ever harmed by lingerie of lotions.

Grow up. Better yet, let your children grow up in reality.

I stumbled upon this by accident.I am one of the owners of Coyotes Show Club in Bucks County and know what you are going through. I am glad to see that the blogs are 95% in your favor.Stick with your fight until the end and you will prevail.If you need legal help, please call our lawyer and he will be more than happy to help out. This is nothing more than bullying by a few religious zealots. The trouble with these people is that not only do they believe that they lead their lives better than you lead yours, but they believe that they can lead your life better than you do.These people are dangerous, but you cannot and should not back down. Repression comes in many forms, and one of them is religious.

Being the significant other of the owner and having helped her with this business it outrages me how the church is taking this. Walk by the shop and see for yourself that you can barely see through the windows and as said before by somebody there is nothing crude portrayed on the outside of the building. She keeps the door open and when you walk by and look inside the only thing you see is a counter and some mirrors. And when you walk in it is such a comfortable setting and nothing that you wouldn't ordinarily see in a shopping ball store. The back room is very hard to see unless you are walking back there. I see kids walk by all the time and not look twice at the store because it has nothing of interest to them on the outside. Countless amounts of people come in and give her kudos on what she is doing and how she is doing it. The seminars are very professional and fun at the same time. There are more things to worry about besides a young woman trying to make a living in a new and original way at BRILLIANT location. The only thing all of this fus is bringing her is more business. I just wish that extremists would stop calling it an adult entertainment store. That is nothing but false. And parents, get used to it, your kids are going to know about it sooner or later. Why dont you do yourselves good and take one of her seminars called "how to speak to your child about the birds and the bees?" get used to a sexual world, we're in the 21st century.

I just moved to Chester from S.W. Philly and I think have another legal store open and running is A good thing. Im more worried about the hooker's on my corner and not the sex shop. Im also glad my girlfriend of 12years can buy the adult things she as well as I, like in chester and not have to take A 3hour septa ride to South Street in Philadelphia.

There's nothing wrong with an adult novelties store like http://www.sinlesstouch.com It is just the beliefs of the people are kind of backward. We are already in the 21st century and we have the right to express a free mind.

For those of you out there that think this store is wrong and sends a bad message to our children, let me say just one thing. Perhaps if you were more open minded in the bedroom and were actually doing something besides complaining about what others are doing behind their closed doors you to could be happy. I am a professional woman and a mother, I have a great social and sex life. Stores like this are wonderful and a great way to explore and learn about your body and sex itself. Why dont you all just try to sit back have a glass of wine and enjoy yourself...you just might like it!

IN THIS COUNTRY WE HAVE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, RELIGION AND SPEECH! THIS IS OUR FREEDOM YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE AWAY BY PUSHING YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS UPON US. I AM A CHRISTIAN AND A GREAT LOVER OF THIS STORE. EVEN IN THE DAYS OF CHRIST THERE WAS SEX, HOME-SEXUALITY AND MORE. OH WAIT YOU DONT READ THOSE PARTS OF THE BIBLE IN CHURCH NOW DO YOU???

I can't believe the world today. People want to oulaw everything and they wonder why the world is so unhappy. I would shop at the store because everybody needs some spice in their life. If anyone has anything bad to say they should keep it to themselves because just because they live a miserable boring life don't mean everyone else has too. I go to church but I like the store and have been inside it and I see nothing wrong with the things in the little shop. I think the preachers need to stop preaching so much Hell Fire and start preaching happier things. They need to start cleaning up the horrible things that go on in their own homes and churches and quit worrying about all the rest of things that they can't change.

I am 19 and do live in West Chester. I have walked past and have walked in her store. The outer appearance is harmless and even the inside is much more humble than other stores. For those who so passionately oppose it, take a seat. And quite frankly, I am not willing to drive 30 minutes or even to a different county to purchase these things.
