    With the recent removal of the book teaching others how to rape children was removed from Amazon, It got me a bit worried.So I snooped. I have found some troublesome areas:

    "books and videos that feature scantily clad pre-pubescent Eastern European and Asian girls, specifically stated by an independent website as being between the ages of 11 and 17, are listed on Amazon properties in Japan and elsewhere"

    Sexual "toys" as pocket P***y and Di**o's are on Amazon. Drug Pipes, videos of sexual nature, ect are there waiting for eager buyers.
    My ? is, I'm finding that Amazon is not so respectful after all and I'm worried that shoppers are goiong to consider them a nontrusted site and quit shopping?

    Any views or feedback?

      My opinion is to vote with your dollars and not spend any money at a company if you do not support their business practices. The larger picture is to get a large group of people to do the same and cause a large enough public outcry that the company changes it's ways. Much like craigslist with removing the adult ads and such.

        Buyers are already voting with their dollars - billions of dollars - every year.

        If as an affiliate, you feel wrong being attached to a company which also has an adult section, you can simply choose NOT to promote them.

      I doubt this stuff will ever be tolerated.

      I would think it's a safe bet to assume that more people DON'T think these are offensive -- they're just private. And for the record -- I'm still trying to figure out what you were talking about!

    I've said before, several times that Amazon sells porn, lots of it. You can find a complete sex toy selection just like any other adult toy store.

    You also can find full hardcore videos and DVD's, plus hardcore books. PLus bondage devices, BDSM and all the other fetish toys, hardware and videos.

    In fact, Amazon is so big that they carry MORE adult items than a lot of full time adult sites. Just the adult toys number around 38,000 or so.

    However I find nothing wrong with that stuff. If you don't like it don't push them then. One should always know just what a company does and sells before you partner with them.

    Adult aids and even full hardcore videos are for adults, nothing wrong with that at all. So, now that you know what they sell, you decide for yourself if you have a problem with it. smile

    Well, this is what happens when capitalism is king. Companies can do exactly what they like because it's acceptable to do anything in the line of profit...

      Who is to decide what they sell? You or the owner? If you open your own company you can sell what you like to your heart content.

      Why do you feel a right to impose your personal morals on others? I think I just read on a neighbor thread you are against this, or did I misread you somehow? wink

    Amazon should be able to sell whatever they want as long as it's within the law.  The fact that they're selling adult toys isn't really a negative thing at all.  You're not going to see it unless you go searching for it; I've never seen porn or adult toys on the front page of Amazon.
