A Treasure Chest of Pleasure

Wow. How depressing is this? The Pleasure Chest is having all kinds of trouble relocating its business on the North Side. Why? Because people are so goddamn uptight about pleasure! It’s not clear from the article where the store is or whether it is actually open again, which seems odd. But what, exactly, is wrong with having The Pleasure Chest in your neighborhood? It’s better than having to drive to some shitty suburb for your porn and dildos, right?

    Chicago is such a FUCKING CONSERVIATIVE town it makes want to vomit.

    I think the people that live around that are protesting are idiots.

    If they want the white picket fence experience they should stay in the suburbs.

    You don’t move to the city with or with out kids and think you’re going to get Disney land.

    I have web site Flauntparty.com and it has been nothing but a pain in the ass working vendors stores investors there all whores behind closed doors but in public they have to keep up this false front.

    This why I’m relocating to South Beach

    The current store location is on Broadway, south of Belmont and North of Briar. I walk past it almost every day and I’ve shopped there for gifts. Damn it. I’d wondered what the hell was going on. And they DO ID you when you walk in, as my brother was annoyed to find out. I hope they get a new site, as I miss them already!

    It’s just another knee-jerk reaction. Sex store?!??! We must stop it! I bet the people who freak out about something like this imagine Bourbon St/Las Vegas-style sex shows where they kidnap your innocent children and sell them into sexual slavery. Not like that actually happens, but I bet you anything some folks think it will.

    funny, that’s what I was thinking about a wal-mart. another knee-jerk reaction to a wal-mart opening in a neighborhood. prices will go down, crime will go up, and our kids will be sold into slavery for minimum wage/no health benefits.

    i’m not sure what the Wal-Mart connection is to The Pleasure Chest, except perhaps if an Adult-Mart Superstore opened up next door and drove them out of business by lowering prices and paying its workers shit to maximize their own profits.
