Should citizens of a community be able to vote on what type of business’ that can move in to their community? If a business is already in operation should we be able to vote on revoking the business license and close the store down? Every year as a law abiding home owner we are required to pay our taxes, shouldn’t that give us the right to keep a high quality and standard of living in our county and save our families and children? 

Many people move to the suburbs for a different way of living then what they have in the city. In large cities I am sure we could pull statistics that show crime rates in cities are generally higher than in the suburbs. I am sure there are many contributing factors for this and I am not here to debate them all. Sex Convenience stores otherwise referred to as Adult Boutiques, Erotic Dancing Girls Stores, Gentlemen’s Clubs, Adult Book Store, Novelty Shop and Peepshows. The names go on. In Philadelphia PA there is a street quickly becoming known as the “Corridor of Crime” it is Passyunk ave. in southwest section of the city. This street is known for The Philadelphia Auto Mall and car junkyards but mixed in between these stores is a growing number of Sex Convenience stores, all of which allow people to have sex in the public in the stores with the owners knowing cashing in and making thousands of dollars a week maybe per day on these sexual acts.

It is not bad enough to have these stores in the cities depressed areas, which how can you stop the street crime if you allow these stores in these areas to also commit a crime but they have a  license to run a store and hide behind that.

Just up the street in Tinicum Township Delaware County there is a store that has allowed men to have sex with each other in peepshows for close to 30 years. It used to be hidden and not talked about but now with the internet as big as it is and bringing sex into the hands of everyone even when they are not looking for it. There are sites on the internet that allow people to post about places to meet and have sex. This store in Tinicum has become quite a hot spot. This is very bad news not only for Tinicum but residents in all of Delaware county whether they realize it or not. These store attract crime. This store has a house with small children right next door, not more than 10 feet from the front door innocent kids are playing ball on their front yard. An apartment complex across the street, a school right around the corner and a church not far away. This store invites people who are looking to have anonymous sex with anyone that walks in. If they actually card you as long as you are 18 years old you can come in and pump some bills into the peepshow and have sex with other men. Older men come there to prey on the younger guys. About 2 years ago the police made them board up the glory holes but that did not stop the customers they just would leave the peep booth door open and some would strip down naked and beg people to use them for sexual acts. Many times having sex with multiple people at the same time.

As I hope you have figured out this is not the type of store or patrons that you want in your neighborhood. I am sure that some of the people who frequent this store are registered sex offenders or just have not been caught yet and they are just feet away from unsuspecting children and families. The store owners continue to make lots of money from these people and the neighborhood crime increases. The police do nothing because the guys who are molested in the store don’t want to press charges and become known as the guy that went to that type of store, these days people would be scared to lose their job if that made the news. The people who get caught committing the crimes that may have come from or going to the store are not going to rat the store out they hope to go back again. The people that need to stop it are us the law abiding citizens we need to get these stores out of our communities before there is no safe place to live, no safe place for your children to go to school, church or even play in their own front yard.  


Make your politicians aware that we need these stores closed down. Revoke the license and shut them down or we need to vote them out and get new law enforcement that will do right by the citizens that pay their salaries and get them out of office. Tell your neighbors and relatives even if they live in a different county or state that I am talking about that we need to clean up America and stop this illegal activity. It goes on in every state you can find the places on the internet if you do some research, it will not take long.


We need our law officials to stop this corruption. If they are not going to do their jobs and enforce the laws than get rid of all laws. Let the people do whatever they want to whoever or whatever they want.  What, we only punish the ones that are in the public eye so that we have a news story and we let the others get away with this?


I am not a religious person and I think that adults should have sex with other willing adults, but what has happened to our morals? When you can’t even let your children play in the yard or walk to school without passing one of these places.
