Comming To a Store Near You?

A new lingerie display in a VS storefront has attracted not just long glances, but also protesters and allegations the chain is promoting lesbianism and sadomasochism.
About 30 women--no men--picketed the Tysons Corner Center store Friday morning. Some were not satisfied that store workers had toned down the display, and promised to boycott the newly expanded mall, now among the nations largest.
A mannequin that had been tied up was unfettered, though it still leaned against a pole with arms raised above the head, and a rope and pulleys still loomed ominously in the background. Two female figures lying spooning in a bed were replaced with a single mannequin sitting with legs crossed.
A mannequin on hands and knees, crawling toward another female figure, also was removed.
The company calls the new display "Back Stage Sexy," and a company spokeswoman at the mall store said that the Tysons store is the third to adopt the campaign.
The display is not about lingerie said Andrea Lafferty of Traditional Values Coalition. It's about sadomasochism and three-way sex.
Others were not bothered by the display. About 40 customers were lined up and roped off outside the store waiting to get in Friday.
"It's fun, it's different. That's what I like about it." said one 19 year old shopper, who shopped at the store with her mother and left with a large bag of merchandise.

Personally, I'm sorry that I missed this display! I think that the protesters need to get a Life. Perhaps they should be taken on a shopping trip somewhere really shocking. Any ideas? Maybe Amsterdam?
