Apparently these mannequins in mid-coitus offended people (no big surprise, right?) and even the NY Times called it “knit-porn”.

Do you find them offensive? It’s pretty tame as far as offensive art goes and the vibrant colors give the whole thing a comical nature. For myself, I wasn’t offended in the least. It’s far from what people will find on sites like https://www.hdpornvideo.xxx/?hl=bg and others – which males and females both enjoy spending time on, but when in a different context without the entertainment or the act in which the entertainment is needed for, sex or sexually provocative items are suddenly taboo and every one suddenly becomes offended even if it’s knowing that someone uses a site like – /escorts-ibiza-228/ – for their own personal needs..

    I am not offended, but y question is, whythe need for such a public demonstration? As a MFT (marriage and family therapist) who speclizaes in sexual issues I have concerns from a different perspective. As a Christian again, I see no need for a public display of such a beautiful private act of making love. To me it makes something so precious and beautiful into a cheap public show.
