Spanish sex shop forced to remove display of holy dildos
The shop – Non Sit Peccatum – in the town of Talavera de la Reina near Toledo removed the display after it received complaints from locals.
According to this report, a group calling themselves the Children of the Virgin Mary launched a boycott of the store.
Shop owner Héctor Valdivielso commissioned an artist to paint the figures of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus on ceramic dildos for a nativity scene with a difference.
At first, the display proved popular and people would pause outside to take photos.
But it wasn’t long before it started to draw negative attention and the owner was subjected to angry outbursts by offended Christians.
Valdivielso said on his Facebook page:
A man with his wife ordered me to remove the offending scene and said that if I didn’t he would remove it himself.
He added that he was subject to a barrage of insults and had to call the police.
Next the shop sign was vandalised with the word pecadores (sinners) and a crowd of around a dozen people gathered outside the shop to harangue customers.
It was affecting my business. Who wants to come to a store like this to hear a sermon?
He reluctantly withdrew the window display and replaced it with a poster inviting passersby to vote on whether he should reinstate it.

The description of the Mary dildo reads:
Hail Mary! Virgin Mary like most smart women knows there is a Second Coming. And a Third. And a Fourth. So give the Lucky Virgin what she wants! The Mother is … Superior.
The butt plug blurb reads:
When you woke up this morning you know that something was missin’ in your life. It wasn’t the new car, the new job, the boyfriend or the girlfriend. But now you know: it’s the Baby Jesus Butt Plug. Slap him on the dashboard. Use him as the ultimate pacifier or make Baby Jesus the centerpiece of your magnificent Dildo Creche.
And the one for Jesus reads:
Jesus was a carpenter, now he’s the powertool. He’s the baddest and the best in all of Nazareth.
The Jackhammer Jesus has just one safety rule: Feet first, feet first, not the head, ya fool.
