T-shirts with obscene messages, penis- shaped candy, lighters with pictures of naked women and plastic breasts are just some of the almost 500 items that have been confiscated by the Local Police of Benidorm in an action against the sale of material of erotic content and pornography in a total of five shops located between Calle Gerona and Avenida Europe.
The action was initiated in response to the complaints of Benidorm's British Businesses Association (BBBA one of the aims of the association is - To promote family values in Benidorm´s tourism.) and dozens of citizens for the exhibition on the street of these objects that are in plain view to the entire world including families with young children. These shops only have supermarket licences and not licences for the sale of these erotic products.
Lorenzo Martinez (head of Public Safety, Emergencies and Beaches), explained that most of the items that have been confiscated were aimed at the British Tourists, who holiday in this particular area which is know as the *zona guiri (see below)* among the items seized were 380 brightly coloured t-shirts with clearly pornographic text written in English, with messages such as "lick my pussy", "fuck off", "fuck loud and make noise", "Suck my cock" and "I think he's gay", among many others.
The Local Police found that all these items were clearly visible to the public without any consideration for minors,
In addition, none of the establishments had administrative authorization for the sale of said products, which could result in a breach of the Royal Decree that typifies the sale of pornographic material.
Police sources indicated that this incident will now be passed to the Government Sub-delegation to interpose the corresponding penalty and, which in this case, can range from 600 to 30,000 euro fines.
*zona guiri - a colloquial Spanish name used in Spain applied to foreign tourists, particularly from countries in northern Europe or the Anglosphere. They are strongly associated with beach tourism and commonly stereotyped as blonde with pale skin and often drunk.
