When it comes to sex, no means No right?
Not according to this book which Amazon are selling. LMR Exposed: How To Overcome Her Last Minute Resistance To Sex, Turn ‘No’ Into ‘Yes’ And Get The Lay!
No means no. Otherwise it’s rape. And for Amazon to sell this, as well as To Train Up A Child, which I was talking about last year, means they really SHOULD start looking at the content they peddle.
When I asked Amazon to withdraw To Train Up A Child from sale, a book which encourages child abuse and violence towards children, a book which prompted over 200,000 people to sign petitions, has been linked with the death of three children, and has over 400 customer complaints on Amazon’s own site, I was met with this response from Amazon’s UK PR Manager;
Amazon does not endorse the content of any book that it offers. This book has been widely debated in the media, and on Amazon, for many years, and anyone who wishes to express their views about this title is free to do so on its product page on our website.
Yet, as we know from articles like this, Amazon DO remove items from sale under public pressure. And the awesome Kellie has also written about this book here. Nice work Kellie, and I think we all need to make a noise and a fair bit of stink about this. Again, my point of view is not one of banning a book, but simply asking a retailer to be aware of what they selling and to pull stuff which is offensive. As they have done before.
Enough is enough Amazon. It’s time to review your internal policies, listen to what your customers say, and withdraw books from sale which encourage abuse, as these two books do.
If you agree, then please email the UK PR Manager of Amazon UK at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts. If you don’t then fine. Move on. I’m not entering into a debate about censorship I’ve made my view very clear many times.
Thanks for reading.
