    I am very excited about this store opening. It is about tasteful merchandising and customer service and another spot for a last minute awesome gift! There are amazing fetish boutiques that are so well maintained and merchandised it would increase the value of any retail area. Sometimes its not even about sex, its just playtime with some pizzaz……we live in COLUMBUS OHIO our imaginations are working hard already to keep things fresh and fun!

    Hustler shop has Columbus seeking to plug loopholes
    Friday, June 24, 2011
    BY MARK FERENCHIK
    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    A zoning loophole that allows Hustler Hollywood to open a store in Clintonville has city leaders looking into whether they can close it.

    The loophole, that is. Not the store.

    “I’m frankly disturbed by this Hustler operation,” Mayor Michael B. Coleman said yesterday. “We don’t want to see that kind of establishment in any neighborhood.”

    maybe I missed it, but where was the uproar when all the Lion’s Dens, the Garden, or the Adam and Eve store went in? Because it is clintonville everyone has their panties up in a bunch. It’s making columbus seem like some uptight sexually repressive cowtown prudes.

    Is he pulling out the royal “we?”

    I see more creeps, panhandlers, and vomit puddles around UDF/BioBlood/any Park Street bar on a single Friday than I ever have around the sex shops on High. Adult stores tend to be well-lit, well-secured, and concerned about their image and legality. They just don’t attract the “bad crowd” that people seem to imagine.

    This is politics. Image trumps reality nine times out of ten.

    Why is there coffee?

    Other Paper article

    “By city ordinance, because not more than 50 percent of the floor space will be devoted to adult products, they do not have to file as an adult business,” and therefore the Flynt family does not have to seek approval from the Clintonville Area Commission, said Sarah Snyder, the District 2 rep who is lucky enough to score the Hustler brand in her district.

    Oh.

    be careful when you ask for cream.

    If I’m not mistaken, I believe this store will offer all types of plugs…

    I know there is an election coming up, but that quote is ridiculous. for me, it doesn’t even seem like Coleman is the one saying it, as if people are pulling the strings(yes, I know they are), but what’s worse is if he acually believes the crap that comes out of his mouth.

    I think it really comes down to the ‘Hustler’ name. yeah, people would be all up in arms and hiding their children from the wrath that is SEX if any sex store opened up there, but it is 10 times worse because the name ‘Hustler’ is associated with THIS store.

    You have to admit that the Hustler brand isn’t helping matters. If I wanted to convince people that my store would be tasteful, upscale, or sophisticated, I wouldn’t use that name.

    Perhaps call it Good Vibrations.

    I kinda agree, but Hustler has really cleaned up, the magazines are more like Playboy now. Sadly.
