Sears resumes selling the worst in human depravity
Sears' explicit DVD offerings include domination, bondage
May 7, 2012Breaking its promise, Sears is again offering hard-core pornographic products on its website. Not just a few X-rated products, but scores of them!
Last year, Sears promised to stop selling X-rated products. In our subsequent monitoring of sears.com, AFA found that Sears has resumed selling sexually explicit products featuring human bondage and sado-masochism.
When AFA questioned Sears about "Ursula's Revenge - A novel of erotic lesbian domination," the spokesman commented about the quality of the book cover (nudity) and called it a "wonderful choice." He then offered to complete a sale of the product to AFA and have it shipped immediately.
I hope you will take my word for it, but if you must see the proof, AFA has set up a Sears product sample page. Warning: the material is extremely graphic and offensive, although it has been edited by us.
Technology allows Sears to remove and stop selling these products within minutes, if they want too. AFA has tried several times to reach out to Sears quietly and professionally. Basically, their single response was, "These porn products meet our terms and conditions" for online products.
Unless Sears hears from you, they will continue to sell hardcore pornography. If you can only do one thing, please:
Make a personal phone call to Sears, so your concerns are clearly understood. Call Sears' corporate headquarters directly and ask to leave a message with Chairman Edward Lampert's office. The number is 847-286-2500.
