Flamingo: 35% More Artificial Vaginas
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: flamingo loveman sex comments: 6
If you've spent any time at the Flamingo in the last 18 months, you've no doubt stuck your head in this:
It isn't the Health Spa, it is the Flamingo's sex toy shop, we wrote about this a year ago.
Anyways, the Flamingo has filed some paperwork to change some local statutes to allow to sell more silver sparkle filled jelly filled vibrating double dongs.... y'know for "bachelorettes party celebrations".
The [FLAMINGO] is requesting to amend the code to modify the definition of Sex Novelty Shop. Sex Novelty Shop per Title 30 means an establishment selling sex articles, materials, items, or devices which are neither books, films, or pictures, tapes or discs which are designed or sold for the stimulation of human genital organs, or sexual gratification including, but not limited to, dildos, vibrators, marital aids and artificial vagina. The [FLAMINGO] is proposing to add the following language: The definition of a Sex Novelty Shop shall not include any retail establishment located on the property of a resort hotel that (i) devotes, at any particular time, 35 percent or less of its entire retail space to the types of inventory described in the preceding sentence, (ii) has, at any particular time, 35 percent or less of its total inventory consisting of the types of inventory described in the preceding sentence, and (iii) derives 35 percent or less of its gross revenue from the sale of the types of inventory described in the preceding sentence, whichever is greatest.
The [FLAMINGO] states that the Las Vegas Strip has become a popular destination for bachelor and bachelorette party celebrations. As a result, many of the resort hotels have novelty stores that sell a variety of retail items including adult apparel and gifts. Currently, there is no distinction between a sex novelty shop and a store that sells a limited amount of adult novelty items. Rather than sending guests to the Adult Use Overlay area of Las Vegas, the [FLAMINGO] is proposing to allow for a limited amount of these items to be sold at a resort hotel.
How exactly will they compute the percentages? Height? Length? Width? Weight? Square footage?
The Planning commission responded:
Staff has concerns with a 35% allowance for this use. Due to the unique nature of resort hotels, a use of up to 10% may be appropriate. No retail establishment within a resort hotel or in conjunction with a resort hotel shall devote more than 10% in gross revenue sales, inventory or floor and wall space to this use.
Just think of the products which won't make the cut... battery packs, beads, buzzers, clamps, clips, dongs, feathers, gags, plugs, rings, rotators, screw-ins, ticklers, teasers, tourniquets, voltmeters, wands, zappers and zingers.
For all intents and purposes... 10% is literally just the tip.
