Sexy Shop Protesters Put "Secrets" Customers on YouTube

Sexy Shop Protesters Put "Secrets" Customers on YouTube

Shoppers looking to snap up a pair of lacy panties (not unlike those the thong bandits arrested over the weekend used) in Vacaville, CA better be prepared to have their shopping habits shown on YouTube.

Protesters have been gathering outside of Secrets Lingerie Boutique to film shoppers heading into the store because they say Secrets "is a shop that is profiting from pornography and other materials that we feel are degrading to people and exploitative."

The store sells lingerie and gifts in front and adult movies in the back. A local business owner defends the honor of the underduds store saying, "from what I've seen so far, it's no worse than Victoria's Secret, or worse than Hanes Underwear store across the way in the factory stores."

Are the panty-vigilantes, justified? To find out,

.

The Vacaville City Council just passed a law that bans adult businesses. One resident said the store is bad for the town's reputation saying, "I believe Vacaville is a wonderful place to live and to raise a family, but shops like this are going to bring in negative attention." But according to a city representative, Secrets is not breaking any laws.

Protesters haven't followed through and uploaded videos of slinky-goods shoppers, but they're fixing to. Protesting a business you don't agree with is one thing — but does using the internet to expose those who support it, crossing the line of privacy rights?

Protest wont matter, only thing is how crazy they are for their arguments. Regards, Alvano http://www.apparelnbags.com/hanes/index.htm

The nearest strip club here is about 30 miles away. They have commercials on TV, after 9pm. The funny thing about the commercials is that the lady they show dancing is slightly overweight and butt ugly. I've always wanted to send them a letter letting them know that if the dancer on the commercials is the best they've got, then I'll never go there. The fact that I'd never go there anyway....

we have a couple of "adult" stores including a strip club (cafe risque) and adult movie and novelty store (X-mart) and lots of naughty lingerie shops. We had some protests early on, but they got tired and went home, Not a peep since.

"We all know the people who protest "dirty" things are secretly the worse. They are probably swingers, who purchase their porn and toys off the internet, so they're not seen. Or, they enjoy taking vacations to Thailand to take advantage of the Child Sex Clubs they have over there. Meanwhile, here they are at home, presenting themselves as perfect God-fearing folks whose biggest highlight to their life is getting all their Church friends together to protest people buying panties." Wow - what a gross generalization. Do you really believe that all people who protest are really much worse? Do you not have the ability to believe in the goodness of man?

I can only imagine what skeletons these protesters have in their closets. We all know the people who protest "dirty" things are secretly the worse. They are probably swingers, who purchase their porn and toys off the internet, so they're not seen. Or, they enjoy taking vacations to Thailand to take advantage of the Child Sex Clubs they have over there. Meanwhile, here they are at home, presenting themselves as perfect God-fearing folks whose biggest highlight to their life is getting all their Church friends together to protest people buying panties.

They live in a world of sorrow, yearning for a simpler time when certain things were considered too brash or unpolite to talk about in public.

How do these people live getting offended every five minutes? This just astounds me. :|

I had no idea that people still protested things like porn and lingerie. It kind of makes me want to go in, walk out with an armload of obscene stuff, and flash a big ol' grin for the cameras. Look, I get that it offends some people, but I think the answer is pretty clear -- just stay away. Don't patronize the business. All these people are doing is calling attention to a store that nobody outside of their town knew about. Any press is good press....

"Hello 1950's puritanism!!! And nice plug citizen! we should all buy these thongs in protest!" Not only should you all buy thongs, you should post pictures here for us to see!! ;)

First, I think it is somewhat rediculous to ban adult stores in the first place. People are allowed to enjoy and enhance thier sexual lives. What is this, the 50's? I think that filming the customers is a breach of thier privacy. I wouldn't want someone to film me while I grocery shop because I eat meat, or in the mall because I buy leather goods. It's not what I am buying that would bother me, but the fact that someone thinks its ok to post my image without my permission.

The same thing is happened in Salt Lake City (which is pretty much the only liberal city in Utah). The Blue Boutique, a lingerie and adult store, had to move is store about three blocks away from where it was originality located and the uproar about it moving was extreme to say the least. Most of the protest revolved around it being near (as in a mile) from a High School and kids were going to have to walk by the store to get to and from their school. Trust me, what they talk about in High School is way worse then anything your going to find in one of those store's. Many of the protesters also threated to video tape people going in and out of the store, which in my mind would just make me shop there more. If your going to shop in a store like that I highly doubt that video taping me going in and out of it is really going to bother me.

What's wrong with being able to get your porn and panties in the same store? It's one stop shoping! :) I have thongs from Express that are so comfortable, I don't even realize I'm wearing a thong. I agree with Sy. If it is uncomfortable, it is probably a wrong size or is being pulled up to high. They have to be allowed to sit where they are supposed to on your hip.

You know who has the best thongs?? Gilligan and Malley or OMalley, whatever that brand is at Target. Those thongs are the best, they are far more comfy than any of the VS ones or Express ones I ever bought! I highly suggest you try them! :)

Oy. I teach in Vacaville, and this doesn't surprise me. Apparently the city banned adult businesses last week (I live a few towns away). There are A LOT of people in the town who live on high horses. There are also a lot of great people, and great families who aren't interesting to report.

Even if they disagree with the pornography in the store it doesnt mean that everyone going into the store is buying porn. What if they sell underwear in a size that might not be available in Victoria's Secret, which many boutique lingerie stores do. Why is it anybodys business where I get my underwear?

Perhaps it's not the thong they protest but the adult movies in the back. If we are all for free speech and such I don't think there is a problem posting this on the internet. Just like porn hasn't been outlawed we can't really say these people have no right to protest and post things to Youtube. If a person wants to be private I guess they should stay at home. And given the pro-porn state of the world, will most people be embarrassed to be on Youtube for this? Probably not.

I love it Citizen! :) Syako, you're right. The proper fit has to be important for underwear as it is for everything else...
