Most people have been harbouring negative feelings for America ever since Trump became president, despite this, one thing I still love about America is the fact citizens take the statement ‘land of the free’ at face value.
While most people would buy sex toys for personal use and keep them a secret, in Houston a local businessman has seen a demand and what the people want is a place to have sex with silicone models.
At first when I heard of this new venture, I was certain it was going to be a man from Florida, because as we know all the craziest people in the world come from Florida. Houston is the last place you would think is popular demographic for sex dolls.
Entrepreneur Yuval Gavriel, owner of Canada-based KinkySdolls, already runs a similar business in Toronto, Canada, where customers can test out the silicon dolls, which heat up, for $60 an hour before deciding whether to buy them at a cost of between $2,000 and $5,000.
A sex robot brothel is “not wanted in Houston”, the Texas city’s mayor Sylvester Turner has said as he vowed to do everything in his power to thwart plans to open one which offers punters the option of “try before you buy”.
“Or quite frankly, from my point of view, the sort of business that I want in the city of Houston.
“I’m not trying to be the moral police, but I am charged with the health and safety of the people in our city.”
He also vowed to check to see whether legislation currently in place was able to deal with the matter.
He added: “I do want to make sure that an ordinance that came into existence in the 1990s is applicable to things that are taking place today.”
The idea is not a hit with anti-sex trafficking charities either, a petition started on change.org by the Elijah Rising charity currently has 9,167 signature as of Friday morning.
However, Mr Gavriel appears to be undeterred by the criticism, telling the Washington Examiner: “I consulted with a lawyer and the lawyer said, ‘Listen, there are no rules to it, but if you are smart you don’t go out and say you are operating a brothel’.
“He went through all the laws and all of the regulations and currently there are no regulations for this kind of service.
“The States is a bigger market, and a healthier market, and God bless Trump.”
God bless Trump indeed…
