Amazon.com Now Selling 'Adult' Material
Aug 22, 2005, 6:00 AM
Now selling alongside "The Da Vinci Code" and "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" are a selection of nearly 39,000 adult products, which Amazon has quietly placed in its Health and Personal care store under the "Sex and Sensuality" section. The products are listed under categories such as "contraceptives," "romantic delights," and "sexual enhancers." In the past, Amazon has generally avoided carrying adult products and pornography. The section does not have a disclaimer warning away minors, but does contain a warning that the products may be illegal to purchase in certain states.
