REGARDING the proposed "outrage" about Mr Ibrahim's proposed sex shop. I was amused by S Harry's comment that he or she was outraged that a sex shop might be opened across the road from play2day because children would be playing there.

Does he or she imagine there will be toddlers trying to cross the bust A47 to enter the shop? Or perhaps that the "sort of clientele" will be drooling dirty old men with an unhealthy interest in little children who may stand and expose themselves?

As to the comment about "those sort of animals" I keep a lot of animals and can assure him or her that they don't frequent sex shops.

Can I take from his or her disgust that his or her children arrived as a result of an immaculate conception? Or were they a result of the more usual method? People have sex, S Harry. It's normal and natural. Some people may like to enhance their sex life by buying items from a sex shop. It happens. Is it better if nobody mentions the S word? Are we to return to a Victorian age when sex was thought filthy and never to be mentioned? For myself, I am a happily celibate woman and have neither the inclination nor money to buy from a sex shop. However, I have no problem with anyone who wishes to. I cannot see why the shop should cause anyone any concern. It won't draw hordes of rabid sex predators to the area. In fact, those who wish to frequent the shop are more likely to wish to be discreet.

Personally, I think that the position of the potential shop is ideal. It's out of the way, accessible, has good parking and I cannot imagine any normal right minded person could have a problem with it. Even if I lived right next door, I would not rush out to buy double strength locks for my doors and rent a chastity belt to protect myself. Nor would I become obsessed about looking to see who might be going into the shop.

Let Mr Ibrahim mind his business, and you mind yours. You'll find life much less stressful that way.
